- RM Re-Library will reprint two or three of the best volumes from the long history of RM LIBRARY, which already has over 280 issues.
- The 23rd volume of the series will be a reprint of "Private Railway Mechanical Diesel Cars Born After the War" (by Toru Yuguchi) from RM Library volumes 87 and 88.

- A mechanical diesel railcar has a structure similar to that of a manual transmission in an automobile, and shifts gears using a clutch pedal and shift lever.
- Its advantage is its simplicity, but its mechanism is not suitable for centralized control, and when operating a train with two or more cars, a driver must be on board each powered car, limiting its potential for development.

- The history of diesel railcars in Japan began with small-scale operations, and the technology for mechanical railcars was almost complete by the time of World War II. However, due to the shortage of fuel during the war, diesel railcars in Japan were once wiped out.
- During the post-war reconstruction, production began on new railcars that were close to reproducing the pre-war mechanical types, and exploration began on new methods of overall control, such as electrical and hydraulic systems. As a result, the last new production of mechanical diesel railcars was in the early 1960s.

- This book introduces 56 of the mechanical diesel railcars manufactured after the war that were introduced to private railways (excluding the Hokkaido Simple Tramway and the Sapporo City Tram) starting from the north.
- There are many variations, including ones that are almost identical to the JNR type, new vehicles that were released as the last glimmer of light railways, and mysterious vehicles of rather mysterious origins...there is no end to the interest.
