-The J51 steam locomotive D51, nicknamed [Degoichi]. It is a steam locomotive representing Japan, which appeared in 1935 (Showa 10) and produced the largest number of 1115 cars in Japan.
-As a steam locomotive suitable for Japanese railways, it made a huge contribution to both passenger and freight trains from main lines to sub-main lines.
-Because it has been produced for a long time, it can be roughly divided into two styles called primary type and standard type.
-In the 1940s, power trains became more electrified in various trunk lines and narrowed the places where steam locomotives could be used. Just before the SL boom that captured the brave appearance of a steam locomotive that is disappearing, just before electrification, at the highest point of the Tohoku Main Line, the 13th Motobuki Pass, at the Tohoku Main Line, it is called D51 Mieren because it pulls a 1000t heavy freight train. There was a strong run.
-Unlike Mieren on Hakubi Line during the SL boom, it was Mie on the north main line, but there are not many people still visiting, due to the timetable revision due to electrification in October 1968 (1968) Disappeared.
-KATO is a triple type at the 13 Sanbongi Pass (Numamiyauchi-Ichinoda), which is called the first form called [name lottery] as a variation of D51, and two types of standard form called Tokuhon Main Line Oku Nakayama Crossing. In order to reproduce the success, we will commercialize it in the form called [Tohoku specification].
