Restored Steam Engines in Japan


D51-498, Her active years

In 2009, there are fourteen restored steam engines in eight classes which can run on main line in Japan.

In addition, there are several small restored engines across the country, and five big restored engines ( B20-10, 8630, C61-2, C62-2 and D51-200 ) in Umekoji museum Kyoto. But they cannot run on main lines because of safety reasons. They can run only inside of a museum or a park's limited small area or yard area.
