This steam locomotive’s Nickname is”86(hachi-roku)” ,Because it is “8620 series”.
Kumamon was on this steam locomotive with a pendant of the “86”.
3.Homemade “Steam Locomotive Hitoyoshi attractions MAP in SUMMER”
The Staff of Steam Locomotive Hitoyoshi gave us homemade Map.
Trains are stopping about 5 minutes or 10 minutes, depending on the station.
So you can take pictures.
I saw the great factory!!
In the 108-year-old wooden station, the train stopped for 5 minutes.
Passenger dashed and took the commemorative photos.
6.Wave hands campaign
When the local people look at this train, they wave hands!
And Passenger wave hands too.
“Issho” of “Isshō-chi Station” means “One wins”.
This is lucky word.
So You can buy Memorial ticket.
The train came up to the countryside
8.JR Kyushu second Kuma River Bridge
This bridge is the unusual structure which is referred to as the “Tran skating type truss”.
