Here’s some photos of my 2011 visit to the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum (梅小路蒸気機関車館) in Kyoto, Japan. The museum is housed in the former Nijō Station building and roundhouse, a fitting location for the steam locomotives on display.

My knowledge of Japanese steam locomotives is very limited so I’m afraid I can’t say much about the locomotives I saw other than they were very impressive and very black!

Tomytec started their Tetsudou Musume (Railway Daughter) range to tap into the crossover market of anime/train otaku, a market that hadn’t really been tapped into before that point.

Naturally fitting into that category myself, it’s only inevitable that I have some Tetsudou Musume figures myself. I’ve got a couple of the smaller trading figures but the best in my collection is this 1/10th scale prize figure of Alice Kuji, associated with the Sanriku Railway.

Luckily my significant other is a fan of red-headed, long-haired characters so Alice complements her collection nicely!
