DT668 steam locomotive

An old locomotive from Taiwan! The card was a pain to scan since it's some kind of mirror paper card but I tried to get it as close and as beautiful as the real card.

The DT668 steam locomotive is the heaviest locomotive ever seen in the history of Taiwan rail transportation. The locomotive, having a maximum speed of 85 kilometers per hour, used to play a key role in railway cargo transportation. The historic train manufactured in 1941, resumed its service on the Neiwan railroad in Hsinchu County, northern Taiwan since November 2011.

Distance: 9,570 km (5,947 miles)
Travel time: 12 days
