C10 steam standing by at Shin-Kanaya

73 years old tank steam C10-8, type C10 2-6-4, 69.7 tons, standing by for the day's steam operation. This dear-memory-like scene still lives at Shin-Kanaya on the Oigawa Railway. One must conjure up yestyear's railway scenery with the tapered end of the old coach.
