Nice station. But I would expect more wood and green elements in the station design as this station is incorporated in the park.

Wow awesome. I remember I saw these plans when the red line was a hole in the ground. That was back in 2006, and I was like wow 2013 is soooooo far away.

Nice, it's coming along real nicely.

Questions though:

1) Out of the 20+ stations along its network, are all of them under construction? Or are some stations not yet being constructed? (i.e. will come at a later time)

2) For Station A1 @ Taipei Main Station, can construction for the Airport train platforms go ahead even without Gate of Taipei? Or does it have to be that Gate of Taipei must be built in conjunction with station A1?

1) Almost all stations from Taipei Main Station to Huanbei (21 total) are under construction or already completed. One station on the route (Boai) was added in after construction had begun, so it will open later. A two-station extension from Huanbei to Zhongli (to connect with Zhongli Railway Station) is planned for the near future. An additional 8 station extension to Bade has been proposed.

2) Construction for the Airport MRT station is still going ahead. The building foundations have already been built, and since it's an underground station, there's no reason to have to wait for the Gate of Taipei to be built above. It's a similar approach to what they're doing at Nangang and Songshan Stations (build underground stations first, then build buildings on top).

A very thoughtful feature I have not seen in subway trains, a waist level luggage rack.

Coming along nicely.

With that said, I can't wait for my next visit to Taiwan sometime within this decade.

But first, time to take some Mandarin Chinese lessons

To be exact, Taoyuan Airport MRT Taipei terminal (u/c) is located some distance west of TRA/THSR Taipei Station

(And even more far away from Taipei MRT Taipei Main Station).

Underground passage with 2 moving sidewalks between Taoyuan Airport MRT & TRA/THSR station sites will be available.

Isn't it also going to be connected (on the other end) to the Beimen station?

You're right...another smaller underground passage between Taoyuan Airport MRT Taipei terminal & Taipei MRT Beimen Station (u/c) will also be available.
