It would be nice if they could and then down the east side connecting back to Kaouhsing.
No, I don't think this will ever happen. The east coast of Taiwan doesn't have the population to support it. The government plan to order another eight sets of Taroko trains to serve the route to Hualien seems like a much more practical solution. Everyone loves high speed rail, but to my mind the most interesting journeys are actually the local non-electrified lines.
