JRS Photos of the Month September 2019

Toyama Chiho Tetsudo

The Toyama Chiho Tetsudo is a private electrified railway system in Toyama prefecture, which operates the city's tramway system (excluding the Port Tram light railway) and 3 railway lines connecting Toyama city, Tateyama and Unazuki Onsen. Tateyama allows connections to the famous 'Alpine Route' across the mountains to Nagano prefecture, while Unazuki Onsen allows connections to the scenic Kurobe Gorge Railway. This month we take a look at a few scenes from the railway operation.
