Options! You always have options when you plan to get a loft conversion done. Do you try a bit of DIY on it or maybe get a firm in to do it. Then there is the access issue. Will it be a spiral staircase, loft ladders or maybe get a nice set of loft stairs! The options are always plentiful. Most lofts (or attic as some people say), that are not turned into bedrooms, or man caves or whatever, are just a place to hide unwanted things or store happy memories. What we are going to take a look at today might well be considered the train spotters perfect loft!
Pack the walking boots because we are flying over to see the Jiancing Historic Trail in Taiwan
What do we see? We could spot an amazing cliff drive with 20+ tunnels dug into the cliffs and in a short 4 mile distance! But we won’t. We could spot the 12 different waterfalls with some being over 100 feet high! But once again we won’t. What I would like us to take a look at is the lost rail tracks and trains that ran until right up until 1942 going straight through this very amazing place. Boring we know but so very, very eye-catching.
With its decaying track, rotting beams and the odd hidden train you get something that looks quite amazing. And also quite like a loft! The new trains run along the valley floors all out of sight and quiet. But the old trains and tracks have just been left to nature is like all the boxes and Christmas trees that people put in their lofts and forget about. Now while we are not saying we should all get that Christmas tree out and celebrate, we are saying that you should at least know what is up there. And if by just thinking about it makes you smile then should it really be up there?!?
So what makes you smile?
