Take a Ride on Thomas the Tank Engine

Known all over Japan for its steam engines that run over 300 days a year, the Oigawa Railway is quite special. One section of the railway is covered by a real-life version of Thomas the Tank Engine as well. For Thomas fans, the railway sells special edition trinkets including a Thomas the Tank Engine lunch box that you can only get through Oigawa Railway. A great time for the kids, for sure. Lastly, the railway also operates an Abt system train, named after Swiss engineer Karl Abt, which is quite unique.
