In Changhua, Taiwan, there is a mainline roundhouse that also serves as a tourist attraction with a viewing platform and several walkways. During our visit, one of the diesels was fired up and spun around to put the steam engines away that had been taken out for show.

Changhua is the next county south of Taichung on the west coast of Taiwan. It is the home of one of the few remaining operating mainline roundhouses in the world.
