Postcrossing Incoming! Taiwan | Steam loco

Hi Ching-Ru for this beautiful postcard with a vintage steam locomotive, which serves as a tourist attraction in Mt. Ali, part of the Alushan National Scenic Area 阿里山國家風景區 (read more here).
The railroad is called Alishan Forest Railway, and while most of the system is operated with diesel locomotives, Wikipedia mentions the steam trains that still do some trips, with a picture of the same machine as the one on the postcard, a Class B 28T Shay locomotive, No.31.
The stamp.
