Salt industry in Taiwan

Thank you to Brian Wu to send me this postcard from Taiwan.

According to Brian, the image shows the cargo train carrying salt in Bu Dai, Chia Yi, southwestern coast of Taiwan.
The salt industry in Taiwan has been on downgrade. The wagons, the diesel locomotives & the railways have been decommissioned & scrapped since about 20 years ago. There are only a few salt pans left there.

Hello again Lay!
It's been a few weeks since we last communicated.I'm writing you today because I've organized a special activity called A FESTIVAL OF POSTCARDS. The theme is WHEELS and this postcard of yours is perfect.
If you agree I would like to post a link to this postcard on my site on May 25th.
If you are interested then please leave a message in this comment box and I will take care of everything:
