Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Leaving Tokyo for Shimonoseki, the longest passenger haul then. The train was first introduced around 1905 and was expanded and upgraded, but still was running at max of 95 km/h. The place is "Yurakucho." The streets and the railway track are still there. The second car after the loco is a battery car, the third one a luggage/mail car.

For copyright reasons, I do not post images here, but see the link for pictures of trains passing the Usui Pass ca 1962.

I will become a patissier, God willing.
