In 1982, the Ali-Shan highway was opened to traffic, which had a great impact on the Ali-Shan forest railway. Since then, the first Japanese-made locomotive has made its debut, with the exception of the experimental DL-38, which does not have a generator, and the sixth generation, the DL39-43, a 28-ton diesel locomotive. This batch of locomotives made by Nippon Sharyo, Ltd.
Has accompanied Ali-Shan railway for nearly 30 years. In the late stage, separated air conditioning was installed in the front of the Locomotive by Jiayi forest administration. So as to improve the working environment of the driver and keep the train from being too hot when running on the flat section. After the main line of Ali-Shan was cut off due to the wind disaster, most of these locomotives moved to the section of Ali-Shan, so the separated air conditioning on part of the locomotives was removed to restore the original appearance of DL-28 when it was introduced to Taiwan.Alishan forest railway in service diesel locomotive table.
