Another 14 Class C57 locomotives were built for export to Taiwan in 1942 and 1953. Power output is 1290 Hp and maximum velocity 100 km/h (62 mph). The class was withdrawn from regular passenger workings in December 1975. About 32 have been preserved and two of them, # 1 and # 180, are operational for JR West and JR East.
