Isumi Railway, Ohara to Kazusa-Nakano Stations

Recommended Posts

Sacto1985

YouTube member Japan Train Viewing--who I've mentioned before--just posted a very good zenmen tenbou video of a trip on the Isumi Railway from JR East Ohara Station to Kazusa-Nakano Stations on a combined (and very old!) KiHa 28/KiHa 52 DMU trainset:

 

 

Note the bouncy ride and creaking noises from this very old trainset. Nice weather outside, though.

The recent third episode of NHK World's Japan Railway Journal showcased the operations on this line--the last KiHa 28 still operational in 2015. It was the KiHa 28--along with the closely-related KiHa 58 model--that essentially replaced the steam-powered passenger trains all over Japan as steam operations were phased out in the first half of the 1970's.
