Glad you pointed this out. So for the uninitiated, of the two places, which one would you recommend more? I’ve been meaning to go to both. It’d be nice to know which one should get the priority.

Haven’t been to the other though I hope to soon, but it seems to be basically big old workshops, trains, maintenance facilities and stuff? The National Taiwan Museum’s Railway Department Park has been fixed up into a nice little museum and is worth a short visit.

The Mitsui Warehouse across the street is also worth a visit. The reflecting pool is a failure though. It just looks like a giant puddle.
