C5856 Steam Locomotive Train

The pride of Fukuchiyama Train Museum

Long before the advent of Shinkansen or bullet trains, steam locomotives such as the C 58 series ferried passengers and freight across Japan. It was a big trip for someone to visit Kyoto from Hiroshima or Tokyo in the 1950's. Today, you can get a feel of how magnificent these 100 tonne plus locomotives are, at the Fukuchiyama Railway Museum Annex (Poppo land No 2). Her sister train, the C58-1, can be found at the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum in Kyoto.
