Recommended Posts

JR Hokkaido Asahikawa Station is offering a two-day package tour featuring mileage on lines the 711 series has run over the past 40+ years.  Oct. 5 will see a trainset in original JNR colors running Asahikawa to Otaru via Sapporo, and then down to Muroran.  After an overnight stay in Muroran, the train will run to Sapporo and travel on the Sassho Line, and then reverse and return to Asahikawa on the Hakodate Main Line. As of the end of August, the number of 711 series workings has been cut in half, and total retirement is scheduled for this coming spring.

I hadn't realized that the 711-kei ran as far down as Muroran. I'm guessing by the clip that I see above, the that train is at Asari?
