SAITAMA — The Railway Museum in Omiya Ward, Saitama, will advise on plans to construct a large museum to exhibit railway cars and other items in Taipei.


The museum in Saitama, which has about 860,000 annual visitors, will pass on its expertise in exhibitions and the operation of such a facility. It also plans to provide any Taiwan-related items found in its archives of about 670,000 items.


The Taipei museum is scheduled to be constructed at the site of the former Taipei Railway Workshop, a railway car factory built in 1935 during the period of Japanese rule. The 18.9-hectare site contained a locomotive maintenance factory and a lathe and smithery working area. Even after World War II, the facility was used for the inspection and repair of railway cars.
