Briefing

Nowadays, Alishan Sation is not only the terminal of Forest Railway, but also the starting points of Zhushan, Mianyue, and Shenmu Line. Originally, Alishan Station was the Fourth Switch of the forest railway. With the increase of tourists in the 1970s, the authority expanded Recreation Area from August, 1977 to November, 1981 and renamed the switch into New Alishan Station. However, it was closed because of the 921 Earthquake in 1999 and the terminal station was also changed to Zhaoping Station. In order to ease the burden of tourists, the Forestry Bureau established the temporary station and started to rebuild the new one. In September of 2007, Alishan Station was reopened.
