JRS Photos of the Month July 2019

Hakone Tozan Tetsudō

This month we take a look at the Hakone Tozan Railway, which was opened between Hakone-Yumoto and Gora on 1st June 1919, so it is exactly 100 years old this year. Read more about the Hakone Tozan Railway in “Bullet-In” issue 100, and about modelling the Hakone Tozan Railway in the forthcoming issue 102.
