On August 6, 2019, local train 3231 of Taiwan Railways Administration, MOTC (TRA), departed at 3:50 p.m. from Douliu Station, bound for Chaozhou Station. The train was scheduled to stop at Sankuaicuo Station at 6:37 p.m., however, the train skipped stop and kept going to Kaohsiung Station passing the home signal and stopped (not yet entered the station platform area). Then train 3231 reversed to Sankuaicuo Station, at the same time Tze-Chiang Limited Express 129 entered into the same block section. The driver of 129 saw train 3231 and applied the brake immediately. Both train 3231 and 129 were safe. No one on board was injured.
