Railway Village in Mikasa City !

by Kazu

I've posted the article on the Railway Village before but this is the first time to post the photo of the locomotive in the village.
The first railway in Hokkaido was built in 1882 to  connect Horonai area in Mikasa City and Otaru City to carry the coal produced in Horonai area.

But after the coalmine industry nosedived and was abolished, the railway from Horonai area to Iwamizawa City was also abolished.
To preserve the railway and the locomotives as the industrial heritage of Hokkaido, the railway village opened in 1987. The real steam locomotive S-304 and other kinds of trains that had carried people and various kinds of products, materials and dream in Hokkaido are exhibited. S-304 and a miniature bullet train actually run around on the premises and can be taken for pleasure.    







Candles are lit in the autumnal festival of this village like this. All these candle-stands are made of transparent pet-bottles. The train manias and a certain circle set the candles and light the candles. The building of the railway station is refurbished as the train museum where the time table, the uniform of the station clerk, the parts of steam locomotives, traffic signals, other kinds of data and materials are exhibited as well as the miniature models of "D51 type steam locomotives" and "Benkei type".
I am not a train mania but it is worth visiting.

Have a nice weekend!

  4. The biggest problem with most pokеr
    plaуeгs is they give away their hands, by their actions.
    Usе quality pοκeг chiρѕ and caгds and
    not the cheap oneѕ fгom the supermarket. This is а longshot but does haρpen everу once in
    a ωhile.

  6. Just as the name implies, these ugg boots are from Australia, that are crafted
    from twin-tier merino wool. If you have no idea about whether boots you want are real or not, it really is advisable
    not to buy them. The unique qualities from the sheepskin mean
    which they will keep your feet warm in even the coldest of weather, but
    that if you use them in summer they will not overheat your foot.
