Taipei to Alishan


I'd like to go from Taipei to Alishan, however, I couldn't find updated information about the train system in Alishan. Wikitravel mentioned that the Alishan Forest Railway going to the peak has been stopped due to the earthquake.

Does anyone have accurate and updated information about how to go to Alishan from Chiayi?

This is what I understand from Wiki and other sites:

Taipei - Chiayi: TRA or HSR train, 1.5 hours, $1080

Chiayi - Alishan: Alishan Forest Railway, 3.5 hours.

If the Alishan Forest Railway is not working anymore, how can I get to Jade Mountain for sunrise? How much is taxi / rental car?

Thanks a lot for your advice!
