Can anyone identify this railway?
Szdfan posted a topic in Worldwide RailI came across this website with this railroad that has some interesting equipment. http://www.netlaputa.ne.jp/~kotora/rail/taiw/kamotu2.html Unfortunately, the script is rendered into ascii gibberish for me, so I’m unable to use a translator.

Hi, my name is Wei and I am the founder of the startup GUNG-HO! Miniatures. We have recently released a set of 2 N scale structures, including our railway warehouse kit for the Taiwan Railway. These kits, especially the railway warehouse were often found in Taiwan and based on Japanese architectural styling during the colonial period. They will look quite at home in a Japanese railway setting, mainly because of its design origins from Japan. Railway Warehouse This style of railway warehouses were a common track-side structure in many Taiwanese stations that handled freight. The design of the structure was carefully referenced after Taiwan Railway's Neiwan Branch. It comes with a distinctive Japanese feature, end walls that extend to cover the roof and awnings to protect against the spread of fire. One or two would look good in a siding serving a pair of short boxcars. Little Red Brick House The brick house fits the theme of and branch lines, often scattered across farmland and rice paddies. I have painstakingly hand carved the brick details and included a little side house that could be attached to any of the walls for extra detail. Station Push Cart Our station push cart is an intricate laser-cut kit that would look great in a station setting with a couple hanging around platforms. The kit can be assembled in a matter of minutes with super-glue. However, painting before assembly is recommended then followed by a touch up with a toothpick. Comes in a pack of 2 per kit. The kits are cast in fine white Hydrostone/ Ultrastone, a material tougher than plaster, easily painted with acrylics, and sculpt-able with a hobby knife. Both kits feature intricate laser-cut windows, however, the warehouse comes with cast resin doors. We offer both an updated version with one piece roofs and original versions that requires more assembly. You can find the details on my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/gunghominiatures or through our Taiwanese site at www.gunghominiatures.com. Please note we ship from Canada and our Taiwanese site can only ship to Taiwan or Japan. All other orders please visit the Etsy store. Feel free to leave any questions :glasses2: Stay tuned, more releases to come. Cheers,
