Construction Of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Battery-Powered Trolley

Gomaco Trolley Company began constructing a battery-powered, open-style trolley car for the Taroko Park project in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in late 2014. The car will have 60 rechargeable batteries, seven rollover bench seats, and operator's stations on both ends with waterproof plastic shields.

The benches are made of alternating, highly-polished woods. The seats are assembled onto the frame and tested.



The open-style trolley is raised to allow for the installation of the trucks, electronics, and batteries.



Inside the trolley, work continues on the ceiling (left), and the battery boxes (center) and brackets for mounting the seats (right) are being installed.



The frame has been painted, and installation has begun for the brass castings, ornately painted panels, and the frosted glass in the clerestory.
