    A little difficulty walking to museum due to no signs on roads.... but found with another lost group of people. I think museum is lacking many must have many exhibits such as movie, train bells...
  • 鉄道好きでなくても楽しめる場所

    津山駅そばにある施設。鉄道好きではありませんが、ホテルのチェックインまでの暇潰しでいきました。鉄道事故が多い昨今、鉄道の線路の切り替えや、カーブでの車輪の違いによる、脱輪率を実験出来るモデルなどがあり、スタッフの方もとても親切でした。
  • 数少ない扇形機関車庫が現存する鉄道館

    二人の孫のお供で出かけました。JR津山駅に隣接していて、車庫には現役を引退した貴重な車両が保存・展示してあり、車庫の前には現役の「転車台」があり稼働しました。孫はプラレールや初めて見る蒸気機関車に夢中。私は半世紀ほど前に九州に帰省の折乗車した特急電車の車両に感極まっていました
