Contents:
The Kaijima Coal Mine Railway was located in the Chikuho coalfield in Kyushu. It is famous for its SL operation until 1976, even after the Japanese National Railways abolished SL. However, as it was a privately owned and operated railway, its details were kept under wraps.
This book is based on a large number of photographs taken by the members of the "Kemuri Pro" group, and introduces the Kaishima Coal Mine Railway. The book is based on a large number of photographs taken by the members of the "Kemuri-Pro" team, and shows not only the unique steam locomotives of the American Arco, the German Koppel and the Japanese Amemiya, which have attracted the attention of railway enthusiasts, but also the fascinating scenery of the railway line, which has rarely been introduced until now.
It also explores the wide range of attractions of Kaijima, broadening its perspective to include the founder Taisuke Kaijima, the development of the Chikuho coalfield, the mechanisms of coal extraction and selection, the Steem Shovel, and the surrounding narrow gauge railways such as Kanamaru and Kurate, all of which are essential background to Kaijima.
