New Art “Down by the Station Platform”


The Oigawa Railway in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan began operations in 1927. It is now a popular tourist attraction for those visiting the local hot spring resorts along the line. Early in the morning at Shin-Kanaya Station, steam locomotive C11-227 and its train wait patiently at the platform for an electric commuter to depart first.
