Constructed in the late 19th century, Taiwan's railway system has been developed so extensively over the years that many routes are in fact no longer used today. The railway system has long been connecting cities to the country side. The history behind the railway system brings a sense of romanticism to railway trains. While the traditional railway system does not travel as fast as the newly opened high speed rail system, traditional trains cost less than half the price of high speed trains, easily making them a favorite among backpackers and railway fans.
