I've seen the "Kyoto Railway Museum" that I can experience the history of the railway and can also ride on the SL

On April 29, 2016, near the JR Kyoto station "Kyoto Railway Museum"Will open. This is an expansion and renewal of the "Umezuo steam locomotive building" which was in the same place before, but also the collections of the Traffic Science Museum which was in front of Osaka · Bentencho Station joined together, and to fully enjoy the whole thing A facility that feels like it may be missing on a single day is completed. Grand open is April 29th, but I watched the inside a little earlier with the preliminary release of the drawing.

Kyoto Railway Museum

The place is located in the west end of Umeokoji Park, Kanikagei-cho, Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto.

From Kyoto Station to the museum
The nearest station is Kyoto station of JR. Because it was about 20 minutes on foot, about 10 minutes by bus, we decided to go for a walk.

Since things are small, I did not notice before, but something like a monument of SL like this is where I left the central entrance. It shows the location of Kyoto Station and Umejiroji Park.

First we head to the west.

There is such a banner in the building of the station.

Also at the entrance to the underground shopping center.

This was particularly large and attracted the attention of people going to the museum.

The monuments are lined up as if to show the way. This is a C62 type steam locomotive.

I think that it is all railway relations, this is a mizukuragage."Kyoto aquarium" opened in 2012There is also a monument related to there as it is in Umekoji Park.

As I walked west west along the JR railway line, I arrived at the entrance of Umejiro Park east in 10 minutes.

The building behind the lawn square is the Kyoto aquarium. But today's destination is not here so go through to the west ......

There is the Kyoto Railway Museum across the San - in Main Line. Already, many people were queuing for entrance.

Wait a while before entering the entrance. Entry began at 10 o'clock.

Admission is divided into two, net ticket group enters from the exit side. The building at the exit is the one that relocated the former station building of Nijo station.

"Promenade" through the entrance hall. It is a covered outdoor exhibition space with C62 type 26, Kuha 86 type, Shinkansen · 0 series vehicles etc. displayed.

C62 type 26 is a vehicle that has moved from the transportation science museum.

The car on the left is the No. 1 car of Kuha 86 shape. The coloring of green and orange is called "Shonan color", and the car of the railroad until that time was a single color "brown", but from then on, it became a turning point where various colors will be painted It is existence. The right hand features 0 series, a round nose that was active in the Shinkansen for a long time.

Kuha 86 shape connects backward Moha 80 shape. Both vehicles were collectively referred to as "80 series trains" and were used from 1950 to 1983, the interior was a cross seat of wooden seats.

For the 0 series, 4 cars are also exhibited, including green cars, but only one is in the inside.

Because the green car is an exhibit vehicle, inside was only to see from the window.

You can get on the last tail, 16th eyes.

The inside of the exhibition was the technology of the 0 Series Shinkansen.

Two-seater ordinary car seat and three-seater ordinary car seat.

It was supposed to be able to see a casual glance at the driver's cab.

Operation on the Osaka annual line will continue until the Kuha 103 form is replaced with a new vehicle at the end of 2018. Therefore, it may not be such a rare exhibition for people in Kansai.

The door is open and free to enter and exit.

The direction curtain itself is also quite new.

Inside of car like this ......

In the route map at the top of the door is published up to the Osaka East.

Fans on the ceiling of the vehicle.

DD 54 Type 33 machine. It was a liquid type diesel locomotive using a torque converter for power transmission, although it was of high performance, since troubles frequently occurred, I decided to retire early. This saved vehicle was the only one of Unit 33 and it moved from the Transportation Science Museum.

Pear 24 and type 24 are connected to the back. It is a vehicle used as a dining car for the Blue Train, and this promenade is also used as a meal space.

Besides lunch boxes, the menu includes snacks and drinks.

Inside, there are about four pairs of tables on the right and left of the aisle, and about 10 sets of tables are installed. Impressively narrow impression.

I ordered "dining car car curry" (900 yen) and "nostalgic tea" (100 yen).

The main curry is fried chicken.

Vegetables seem to be cooked separately from Ru. I feel that it is somewhat unusual that bamboo shoots are included.

"Nostalgic tea" is provided in a rather hot state. As the dining car is ready for cold, this tea is also said to turn around.

Lunch box sales were done between the 80 series vehicle and the C62 type.

The menu looks something like this, it overlaps with the dining car, but it seems to be ants to eat the items you bought here with a dining car.

This is "Umetetzlunch BOX" (1500 yen).

Small lunch boxes contain chicken rice, potatoes, sausages, fried chicken, pork cutlets, hamburger steak, omelets and so on.

After eating, you can bring back the lunch box, so you can satisfy your stomach and you will have two birds with one stone. In addition, if you only want a lunch box, you can purchase at the museum shop.

More than 12 were exhibited in the promenade.

Twilight Plaza
The main building is built to connect from the promenade.

Its contents are as follows: the first floor is "I railroad history", "II railway mechanism" "Vehicle factory" "III railway facility" "Twilight plaza", the second floor is "IV life and railway" "V operation train" "railway Diorama "" Plan exhibition room "" Kids park "" Restaurant / resting place ", the third floor is" Sky Terrace "" Hall "" Library room "" Gallery ". Although it may come in immediately, before that, to the "Twilight Plaza" on the left side of the main building.

As the name suggests, a total of 6 vehicles such as Twilight Express are exhibited. In addition, warehouse is made by reusing the thing of the second generation Kyoto station.

What I can see is EF 58 type 150 and EF 81 type 103 type.

It was the same as the promenade in that the center was like a home and the train stopped on both sides of the train was the same, but there was a hand washstand here. Especially explanation board was not provided, but it was said that it was used at Sanyo main line · Asuka station until 1999.

Twilight express logo

Sloenev 25 type 501 has one "suite" and four "royal" rooms, this last part belongs to the Royal room.

Sushi 24 No. 1 car, a dining car, was also on display and the meal was ready in the car.

EF65 type 1 machine. As EF65 type is still active, we may see it as a driver of cargo train.

By the way, rails are extending from outside the site towards Twilight Plaza ......

It continues into the building of the main building. This leads to the "exhibit drop-in line" which will come out later, and it is used when exchanging. A railroad museum that is connected to the business line in this way and can exchange exhibits is a very rare existence in Japan.

Main building 1st floor
Well, the main building is finally here. 500 type Shinkansen (No. 521 Type 1 car), 581 series train (Kuha No. 581 type No. 35 car), 489 type train (No. 1 car of Kuha 489 type), 230 type steam locomotive (No. 233) welcome. I can see the locomotive in the back.

230 type 233 in the immediate place has been relocated from the Traffic Science Museum. In addition to being designated as a railroad monument in 2004, it is designated as a mechanical heritage in 2007 and an important cultural property in 2016.

The 500 series is characterized by a particularly pointed nose even compared with other Shinkansen vehicles.

It is also characterized by a circular section of the car body.

Compared to the 0 series exhibited in the promenade, and the 100 in this hall, the difference is clear.

DD51 type diesel locomotive which is also exhibited entirely here. I think the exhibition position of the car is a bit high ... ...

The reason is in the stairs that are next to it.

The passage is under the car ... ....

You can see the mechanism around the truck and the lower part of the car so that it looks up. It seems that such an exhibition is the first in the industry.

Likewise, the EF66 electric locomotive is also ......

You can get in under. I can understand the part similar to DD51 shape, different part.

The type of item display varies across vehicles, models, items, panels and so on.

Head mark attached to the vehicle

Privatization privatization of the National Railways head mark and commemorative special key

From old to new, traffic lights.

This is an exhibit that can verify how much the strength of the bridge changes with the presence or absence of one member.

You can also take the orbit for track maintenance work.

There is also a space called "Showa-no-station" which reproduced the stations around 1954 to 40 years.

Where the fare table is divided into 2 · 1 · etc., it differs greatly from now.

The message board which mostly have been removed now. In Tsushiji Hojo's manga "City Hunter", a system called Cityhy Hunter took a contact when writing "XYZ" and his contact information on this message board.

Inside the window there is a checkout register and a stamping machine for the date of ride.

The station name label is also a bit retro design.

You can see how your pantograph and trolley springs work with your own eyes.

This is not a space but a space where you can experience the difference in spring. From the left, it becomes old with air springs, coil springs, leaf springs.

At a railroad crossing set in the hall, when pressing nothing, do not push "emergency button" OK.

A cut model of 912 type diesel locomotive (Unit 64) is waiting next to a railroad crossing.

There was also a Grand Class seat of the Hokuriku Shinkansen / W7 series, but it is only at the event that we can sit on this seat. Sorry.

The back of the 1st floor of the main building directly leads to "exhibit drawer". This is a space reproducing the vehicle factory, two pairs of tracks are laid, and a high altitude passage is established in the center.

You can check the state of the upper part of the body from the aisle.

The twilight express Salon car "Salon du Nord (Salon du Nord)" that was on display. Although it is a vehicle featuring large windows, it is regrettable that the inside is not visible at all.

When you open the door, it is connected to the side of Twilight Plaza just before, so it is easy to replace exhibited vehicles.

Although it is a detailed point, the toilet guidance was like a confirmation of the pointing by the male and female station staff.

Main building 2F
When you try to rise to the second floor with a long escalator, you can see the decoration of the wall on the right hand side.

These are all license plates of steam locomotives and electric locomotives.

The view of vehicle type and serial number looks like this.

The first thing you get into the floor is a space like a fish tank.

This is a space that allows visitors to learn about safety control by driving train models by saying "Let the train run safely."

If you put too much speed it automatically brakes, so you have to drive safely so that it will not be so. Experience driving is two laps.

In the sense that we learn the mechanism of operation, the driving command place supporting the diamond seems to be helpful.

The operation status of the Sanyo Shinkansen is reproduced, and you can learn the role of command center in quiz format at hand.

Next to that is a driving simulator.

Here, the same driver cabin as JR West uses for training driver is touched.

There was "Kitsupariba" in the back.

Although it is becoming possible to see what kind of mechanism the ticket vending machine is ... ...

This is a little old type ticket vending machine.

Ticket vending machines can issue tickets for exclusive use.

Tickets like this ......

Available on ticket gates inside the museum.

This ticket gate, a transparent ticket vending machine that shows the contents ... ... ...

I can see what kind of movements are going on before I put out the ticket.

However, in fact the action is in a blink of an eye, so if you notice it is also said that a ticket is coming out.

If you do not have a ticket, you can not proceed further.

On the inside of the ticket gate, a reversing flap type guide indicator used once was installed. It is like the image of Osaka station ... ...

Content can be edited freely.

Takara Tomy sponsors kids park. In addition to the W7 series mini cabinet located in the center, there are toys and picture books related to railroads.

A pure "railroad diorama" is this space. The railroad model of the HO gauge runs as it narrows.

The size of the diorama is the largest in Japan.

Popular, many people were making a queue.

By the way, things like the window of the Shinkansen near the ceiling were established along the 3 rd street corridor.

The second floor is as good as the first floor as well as the number of exhibits is large, but in the back you have a restaurant / rest space.

The menu of the restaurant looks like this, there are plenty of menus that imagined the railroad, such as "Umekoji Fan Garage Curry" (1000 yen), "Dr. Yellow Omer Rice" (1000 yen), "Kyoto Station 0 Pizza" (480 yen).

Since the window of the restaurant opens south, you can eat while watching the train running along the railway line.

We were crowded at lunchtime, but we secured a seat close by the window.

I ordered Dr. Yellow Omurais and I waited for the bullet train to come. Dr. Yellow became model 923 which was developed based on 700 series.

To keep shape, eggs are crispy.

Chicken rice inside.

Shinkansen goes far away and ...

It is great to eat rice while watching long cargo formation passing each other.

Main building 3F
Just above the restaurant is the Sky Terrace. You can enjoy the view over the restaurant.

The five - storied pagoda of Toji is visible to be a nice feeling.

After seeing the eyes to the left, it is only a little to Kyoto station. Above the bullet train, brown building "Avanti" is written, but this is on the south side of Kyoto stationKyoto Avanti.

Furthermore, looking at the left side, you can see that the Sagano line (the San - in main line) is curved upward. On the left side of the photo, the red passenger seen from the shade of the building belongs to the SL Steam issue that can be ridden by the SL passenger experience.

Such a train location information system is placed on the terrace, and the operation situation around Kyoto station is full of understanding. By the way, although it seems to be able to switch by tapping line section selection, it is not a touch panel but a display only.

Thanks to that, I decided not to miss seeing the Super Yaku going.

Somehow, I would like to take good pictures with Toji and Shinkansen ... ....

The lunch box is also being sold at the Sky Terrace, which you can eat at this time.

When I got inside from the terrace, I found "the window on the 3 rd street" looked down from the bottom. Eating and drinking is prohibited in this space.

There are galleries, books room, halls here. The publication of the book materials in the library room is only Saturdays and Sundays.

SL 2nd repair store · SL Hiroba · fan garage · Old Nijo station building
From the 2nd floor of the main building to the contact deck.

When passing through the top of Twilight Plaza ......

The building on the right is the "second inspection office". This is a new facility built in 2015, a facility that will serve as a base for preserving the dynamics of steam locomotives.

Restoration works of D51 type 200 are currently underway.

From the contact deck you can see the fan garage and the SL Hiroba.

View of the fan-shaped garage from the contact deck of the Kyoto Railway Museum - YouTube

Stopped on the right hand side is the SL Steam issue.

On the other side of the deck are EF 65 type electric locomotives and DE 10 type diesel locomotives.

Incidentally, the whole picture including the main building etc. is like this. It is quite time consuming to come around from the entrance to the main building and the promenade.

Because it is pre-release, I was able to ride for free, but when officially opening it is 300 yen once.

In the seat, the express headmark which had been operated once, and the design corresponding to each.

I will travel about 500 m on the track laid on the north side of Sagano Line (San-in Main Line).

After reaching almost the end point, the rapid speed of the Sagano line ran.

It should be visible from the Shinkansen running over the elevated.

The journey is about 1 km round trip, about 10 minutes.

By going straight through the locomotive which I ran far ... ...

You can see it carefully in the driver 's seat.

It is characterized by swallow marks on the smoke removal plate.

This time we were hit by C62 type 2, but other locomotive locomotives are sometimes drawn.

SL Steam issue returning to the Kyoto Railway Museum - YouTube

A steam locomotive is a good thing to ride and see.

The passenger car stopping beside the fan-shaped garage is Ohafu 50 type 68 car. It was once used for regular trains and now it is a resting place. In addition, 53 cars are displayed at the Kyoto Railway Museum, but Ohafu 50 is not counted.

The fan-shaped garage was completed in November 1914 and is designated as an important cultural asset. The locomotive release in this fan-shaped garage was also done in the era of the predecessor of the Kyoto Railway Museum "Plum alley steam locomotive building", but strengthening work was done in renewal to the museum.

Locomotives lining up in the garage, C51 type 239, C53 type 45, C59 type 164 from the left.

There is a big chrysanthemum pattern in model C 58 type 1.

It was medium size aircraft for both customers and active in the local line nationwide from Hokkaido to Kyushu.

It is the same type as the one that had pulled the SL Steam issue before, C62 type No. 1 machine.

There is no swallow mark on the smoke removing board of Unit 1.

This is model D 46 D 468. After the war, the C62 form is a steam locomotive for cargoes a lot, while on the other hand when the passenger use is insufficient, this D52 form was modified.

"Japan's largest and strongest mammoth steam locomotive" is.

Just this D52 form has a staircase next to it, so you can see the steam locomotive from a high place.

I saw the above C51 type 239, C 53 type 45, C 59 type 164 from above.

D52 Shape 468 from the top. The car around here is not a kinetic preservation that is actually movable but because it is a static storage that can not be moved, it is a bit of an impression.

In addition, although half is kept static, 5 C, such as C62 type 2 which came out earlier, are kept dynamic and still undergoing inspection and maintenance in this garage. This is C56 type 160 machine.

There are other than steam locomotives. DE 10 type 1156 machineSagano Tourist RailwayAs a spare machine, a special paint is given.

And Model 7100 "Yoshitsune". It is in a state where the campaign has been restored in October 2014 and the campus operation is possible.

On the side is "YOSHITUNE".

Exhibits are in the garage, behind the locomotive.

Furthermore, limited enclosure of reclaimer. Since this day is pre-published, it has not been operated yet.

Medals machines and rattles are similar.

Finally to the old Nijo station building.

Originally built in 1904, it is the only one existing as a station building of authentic wooden building built in the Meiji Period.

The interior is an exhibition space and a museum shop. The lunch box of "Umetetsuran BOX" that came out at the promenade can be purchased here.

The exit is next to the entrance east.

Return trip
Since the outward route was on foot, we chose another route on the way back.

The best choice is to get on the bus from the bus stop in front of the exit. It is an interval of 15 minutes on weekdays to Kyoto station, and 7 ~ 8 minutes on weekends.

There are also buses to Hankyu Kyoto Line · Kei Station and Saiju Station (Shijo Nishijiro) when going out to Shichiryo.

It is also a bus to Kinkakuji, Kiyomizudera, Heian Shrine, Tofukuji and others.

By the way, when I got on a bus headed for Katsura station, it took about 20 minutes (240 yen) to get to Katsura station after getting on the bus. Visiting from Hankyu railway lines and returning home may be ants to use this bus.

The admission fee is 1,200 yen in general, 1000 yen for college students and high school students, 500 yen for junior high school students and elementary school students, and 200 yen for infants (3 years old and over). You can enter without leaving the dayAdvance admission ticketThere is also.
