  • In Otaru, and came here. Is a bit lonely and deserted. 300 yen to pay in total? The excellent Railway Museum just as it seems. Now I'm sorry I have no interest in the railway.

  • Apart from that facility not owned by JR train originated in Hokkaido, former temiya line and temiya station premises are available, the Railway Museum and even funny, not Railway Museum over its facilities such as vehicles, garage, turntable, I would spot a tired to train like one day stay. At the entrance of the Otaru City Museum, Suha 43 717 and wafu 29500 type vehicle passenger car and a caboose placed trueno (Treno) which means fittingly trains in Italy, the name restaurant. 11-14 at lunch when I think. And a statue of Joseph Crawford is located at the entrance of the Museum. Welcome figures is known as the father of Hokkaido Railway was completed the work in a short period of time, determines the construction of a railway route to Crawford's American engineers will construct a railway in Hokkaido, Japan, was still in uncultivated Hokkaido. SL imported 0/1885 in the Hall of the Museum "and noticed no.", you can know the history of the Hokkaido Railway, diorama or exhibited, reproduced at the time was also exhibited. In the outdoor exhibit, deeply connected to Hokkaido 30 exhibits two or more vehicles. You can see it enters its interior vehicle of the Japanese national railways age and old old SL, limited express trains, including the rare vehicles that have been exhibited. Unusual steam locomotives was a C55 type. The KIHA 82 series, contributed to the vehicle continued working until predecessor type C57-became quite famous in the name of "the Lady", from a line of Japanese national railways (currently, JR) on all steam locomotives are not in Hokkaido, and local non-electrified lines. Thanks to this vehicle is made with express operation becomes possible. 1961 (0/1961) starting operation in Hokkaido. Origin, ran for various fields, such as Sapporo, Abashiri and Kushiro Hakodate. Vehicles include snow structures developed and for Kyushu ED76-red electric locomotives, electric locomotives, and changed the specification in Hokkaido. Old hands Palace garage is included in the important cultural asset in the country. Is stored is extant oldest locomotive made in the was victory no. 1895 (0/1895). It got this name from the Sino-Japanese War victory. I called from the red car railbus is the small vehicles made for the local line, such as Hokkaido, but failed to rush to the short duration of use. It is a valuable vehicle. I think that serious vehicle maintenance. That could Jinx future, and I think with SL and vehicle recommended photo. Otaru City Museum closed Tuesday and since year-end and new year holidays, opening hours from 9:30 to 5:00 PM, it's snowing in winter outdoors stop is by all means visit in spring, summer and fall seasons it?.
