There is a prototype for everything... (Japan Rail)

Japan is famous for, among other things, a plethora of manhole cover designs, so why not a JR one as well?

Seen on a public road near Musashi-Sakai station, a block or two away from the Chuo Line.

I dont know weather to laugh or cry...

 

Seems Japan has a few of these sectioned locos, JR Kyushu did it to most of their preserved stock sadly.

If you ever visit the JR Musuem in Omiya, if you walk back along the main road to Omiya Station, you pass the depot which has the decapitated heads of various locos on display. The above is the first time I've seen one left on its bogie though.

Steam locomotive on a concrete elevated viaduct running through a park?

No problem if you're modelling Yokohama in 1980.

The viaduct in question is partially still in place in use as a public walkway, but not in the park (Yamashita Koen) - it ends here, just before it reaches the park.
