Xinzuoying Station (TRA) or Zuoying Station (THSR and KMRT), is a major railway station served by Taiwan Railway Administration, Taiwan High Speed Rail, and Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit located in Zuoying District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Passengers can transfer between TRA Western Line, KMRT Red Line, and THSR at this station,[4] and it is the only rail station in southern Taiwan where three rail systems converge. The station handles over 64,000 passengers daily on conventional rail, metro, and high-speed rail.[1][2][3]

[edit]Overview


The station is located at the eastern foot of Banpingshan (Chinese: 半屏山) in Kaohsiung.[5] In addition to rail routes, the station is also close to National Highway No. 1, 3, 10 and Provincial Highway No. 1 and 17.

On October 15, 2009, Shin Kong Mitsukoshi won a deal to lease a building at the station and turn it into a shopping complex under a 10-year operate-transfer (OT) contract for NT$505 million (US$15.6 million).[6] The new branch opened at the station on April 1, 2010. In June 2009, a folding bike rental station was set up at the MRT station to facilitate tourism in the city.[7] The station is also equipped with vehicle and motorcycle parking lots.[8]

[edit]Structure


The TRA and THSR parts are located in the above ground portion of the station, constructed together and opened for revenue service in January 2007 with the commencement of THSR service. As the current terminus of the line, the THSR part of the station has three island platforms serving 6 tracks. The TRA part of the station has 2 platforms serving 4 tracks, with one additional through track.

The KMRT portion of the station is a two-level station located underground,[9] at the northeastern part of the TRA/THSR station building.[5] The station has 2 exits[10] and opened for revenue service in March 2008. Dedicated exits between the KMRT station area to the TRA platforms allow direct transfer between TRA and KMRT trains. The KMRT part of the station has an island platform serving 2 tracks of the KMRT Red line.[9]

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
