miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionOigawa Railway has purchased four 14 series passenger cars to supplement its fleet for steam service. Two are SUHAFU 14s, numbers 502 and 557, while the other two are OHA 14s, numbers 511 and 513. Some or all of them were in the Hamanasu formation(s). These were transported by sea between Tomakomai and Nagoya, then by road to a siding near Shin-Kanaya. So, according to the blog linked below, there is no physical connection between JRC and Oigawa, or am I misunderstanding that? http://railf.jp/news/2016/06/10/160000.html http://railf.jp/news/2016/06/13/103000.html several images on RailKingJP's new blog: http://railking.jp/ride/report/2016/06/15/01-24/ further cool video
Here's an excellent video posted in the last 24 hours by TN5DMK2. This is a collection of video recorded between September 2012 and August 2013 featuring locomotives C57 1, C56 160, C11 227, C11 190, C12 66, C11 325, C10 8, C61 20, C57 180, C56 44, and C11 207. The lines are: JR West Yamaguchi Line, Mooka Railway, JR East Suigun, Shin'etsu Main, Ban'etsu West, and Narita Lines, Chichibu Railway, Oigawa Railway, and JR Hokkaido Hakodate Main Line. A really great collection of footage, nearly an hour long. All great looking locomotives, I like the proportions and drivers of C61 20 the most. Amongst the many good scenes is night video at Oigawa's Senzu Station around 23:30, and C61 20 motoring up the Shin'etsu Line's 25 permil grade between Matsuida and Yokokawa staring around 48:30. Apparently D51 498 (absent from this video) was pulled from this service at the last minute, and DD51 842 at the end of the train is pushing a bit to make it up the hill.
