Some old pictures of Japanese steam locomotives

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone,


my English is not the best, but I'll give it a try. Maybe it is of interest: In the archives of the ETH in Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich) there are some old pictures of Japanese steam locomotives. I have compiled them on my German-language website on railways in Japan.


Pictures of the Class 2120 (later B6) locomotives can be found here: http://japanbahn.wikidot.com/klasse-2120

Some pictures of other steam locomotives here: http://japanbahn.wikidot.com/lokomotiven


The respective link under the pictures leads directly to ETH, where you can view and download the pictures in higher resolution. These pictures are public domain.


Best regards from Bavaria
