Museum in Niigata, Japan, tells the history of railroads

Posted: Friday, July 4, 2014 12:00 am

Tucked away in the manufacturing districts of Niigata City is the Niitsu Railway Museum. Space being a premium in Japan, this museum has only two full-sized engines, one from the days of steam and one Shinkansen, or bullet train, engine. Inside the two-story facility houses an incredible number of artifacts.

Mr. Roderick Blake, the Ball High choir director, and I got the chance to visit the museum on our recent trip to our sister city. As a member of the board of directors for the Galveston Railroad Museum, I was very interested in the Niitsu Railway Museum.
