Visiting the old train stations of rural Tainan is one way to tour Tainan. A white wooden building standing, amidst green paddy fields, Linfengying Station(林鳳營車站) was built in 1933. Sitting on the wooden bench looking at the old building and hearing the bells as a train arrives at or departs from the station, it’s easy to feel as if time has gone backwards.
Time also seems to have stood still outside the station, the huge banyan tree still stood in the middle of the road. The paintings in the old red brick and tile house next to the station attract the attention of passersby. In the past, many wandering travelers longed to return to this old station and home. Today, it is well worth visiting to have a nostalgic journey back in time.
