Taiwan’s bullet trains would not run in southern Taiwan until at least 5 p.m. Saturday after its power system in Tainan was damaged in a magnitude 6.4 earthquake earlier in the day, according to Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp.
The bullet train operator said its service remained normal between Taipei and Taichung in central Taiwan, but all trains between Taichung and Zuoying, Kaohsing were canceled due to the damage to the power lines 30 kilometers north of the Tainan station.
No estimated time was given as to when the damage can be repaired. No structural damage was found along the 340-kilometer high-speed railway, the company said. [FULL STORY]
