JRS Photos of the Month May 2016

This month we continue our look at the tramways in the Kansai from the collection of Oliver Mayer. This
collection comes from a visit to the Hankai Tramway in Southern Ōsaka.

All taken on 8th October 2007.

Tram 605 at Sumiyoshi, a tram junction and tram stop, on its way from Sumiyoshi-Kōen to
Tennōji-ekimae. On the left is the short line to Sumiyoshi-Kōen stop, just beside Nankai’s
Sumiyoshi-Taisha station. This short line was closed at the end of January 2016.

Tram 601 at Sumiyoshi, on a service from Tennōji-ekimae to Abikomichi.

Tram 354 at Sumiyoshi-Torii-mae, bound for Hamadera-ekimae.
