Train Trip - Taipei to Hualien

Ordered train tickets to Hualien yesterday over the internet. The new graphical web pages don't work properly yet. Had to use the old web pages. Also needed a Passport Number that all citizens have in Taiwan. Had to borrow someone elses number. Then, today, picked up the tickets at the local Post Office. I took a number and eventually went to the "Bank" window to get the tickets. The "Postal" window sells stamps without glue. There is free glue at a near by table.

The train ride will be between 3 to 4 hours and will follow the East coast. Two years ago, I took the same train and eventually went around the whole island with three more stops along the way.
