It was a big boom not only for railroad fans but also for general people to take a photography trip around the country in search of a steam locomotive with a camera as their shoulder.
Among them, “Nunohara” was the hottest topic compared to “Niseko” in the north. The lime transport train drawn by the D51 Mieren, which takes place at the Nunohara signal station between the mountains and the Habi line that runs through the Chinese mountains and connects Sanyo and San'in, attracted attention.
