The true origin of the second Alishan Forest Railway #13 cannot be verified. It is either sn-2351 [#11] or sn-2352 [#12].
There is only one original LIMA mark left on any of the Alishan RY Shays and it has no number. All of their Shays have been re-built, changing much of the original Lima product. Most were renumbered for various reasons without regard to Lima Shop Numbers over the years.
