One locomotive got a little more purrrfect.
Following in the footsteps of EVA Airways, and their famous Hello Kitty Shining Star Jet, the Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) unveiled a new Hello Kitty-themed train on Monday. The first of its kind in Taiwan, the Hello Kitty-themed Taroko Express train features eight carriages, each with a unique cartoon design, and travels on the east coast route from the Shulin train station to Taitung.
Couldn’t make it to the big reveal? Don't worry. This is just the first in a series of Sanrio-inspired locomotives (and merchandise) from the TRA. Two trains will depart every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after April 21 to meet public demand.
