Operational Steam at Umekoji, Japan

30 Jun

The Umekoji Depot Museum (now known as the Kyoto Railroad Museum) has long been home to operational steam. I had been unaware as to how much of their collection was operational until a recent Note from a site visitor (Yuki Taki) that outlined their status.

Locomotives in Japan can be operational, but not certified for mainline use. At Umekoji we have the following locomotives:

JNR 4-6-4 No. C62-2 Operational, Not Certified for Mainline Use
JNR 4-6-4 C61-2 Operational, Not Certified for Mainline Use
JNR 4-6-2 No. C57-1 Operational, Not Certified for Mainline Use
JNR 2-6-0 No. C56-160 Operational, Certified for Mainline Use
JNR 2-8-2 No. D51-200 Operational, Certified for Mainline Use
JNR 2-6-0 No. 8630 Operational, Not Certified for Mainline Use
JNR 0-4-0T No. B20-10 Operational, Not Certified for Mainline Use
