 文字稿//Old Blue Trains

 These days, the trains in Taiwan are very nice. They have air conditioning,
 and they are very fast…

 But when your mommy and daddy were young people, the trains in Taiwan were
 very different. 你爸爸媽媽小時候坐的火車,跟現在的火車很不一樣喔。

 The old trains were painted blue. The old trains were slow… and guess what?
 They didn't have air conditioning! But, you could open the windows on the train!
 老火車是藍色的,速度很慢,而且還沒有冷氣! 但是旅客可以打開窗戶。

 If your mommy and daddy tell you they miss the old trains, I have good news
 for them… The old blue trains are coming back! They will only be used for
 special trips. So, if mommy and daddy want to feel young again, they can get
 a ticket and go ride on the old blue trains.
好消息,藍皮老火車要回來了! 雖然是特別的班次,但只要買了票就可以搭乘。

 How about you? Would you like to ride on a train with no air conditioning?
 Although, remember... you can open the windows.
 你想去坐一下沒有冷氣的火車嗎? 記住可以打開窗戶喔!

 Hmm... I say, sure, why not? Maybe it would be fun.

But not every day! I like air conditioning, and open windows let smoke and
bad air come in! Taiwan's new trains are much more comfortable.
