JRS Photos of the Month January 2018


We kick off the new year with a look at one of the most popular places to visit for the Japanese Railway enthusiast.

All Photos: Oliver Mayer, 8th October 2017

Former Hannover tram 236 on a charter working near Yokogawa station. This
car was built in 1928 and rebuilt in 1950, and was donated to Hiroshima by
its German sister city Hannover in 1988.

The 2000 subseries of the 115 series was built exclusively for use on the
Sanyo Line around Hiroshima in 1977. Photo taken at Hiroshima station.

The 227 series 'Red Wing' was introduced in 2014 and will eventually replace
the 115 series around Hiroshima. The photo shows an Iwakuni-bound train at
Nishi-Hiroshma station.
