It is a recording record of electric freight car Moto 97 type (C # 97-98) used for transporting Minami Osaka line vehicles to Goido temple garage and Takayasu inspection ground. It consisted of scenes of transporting four types of vehicles, including those that were released in the past.

Thatis interesting.  IIRC Osaka subway is standard gauge, not narrow gauge, and it appears the bogies for the cars are on the actual electric freight car on each end.  And the cars have had narrow gauge wheelsets installed for transportation use ???

Minami Osaka here refers to Kintetsu's South Osaka division, Osaka Abenobashi to Yoshino + branches. This is 1067mm gauge and has a connection to the rest of the network at Kashihara Jingu-mae station, where there is a gauge-transfer shed. So the trains being transferred with the trucks placed on top of the motor cars are coming from or going to Kashihara. The orange painted train however looks like one of the Yoro Railway sets.

Cheers NB
