Yen, Jung-Hsien

After Mr. Lai's introduction to Changhua roundhouse, we were introduced to  Mr. Yen by our teachers.  As soon as understanding the reason why we chose the theme as our research project, he enthusiastically showed us a special skill--replacing the brake pads of locomotives.  The demonstration was very rare for common tourists.  Especially for us, we were all surprised at his demonstration! It was really impressive!
