About 130 third graders of Kanda Elementary School and the Nogata School for the Deaf, both located in Nogata-shi, Fukuoka Prefecture in a southern island of Japan, visited the "railroad and train club" in the city, and enjoyed the model of the railroad and the steam locomotive.

The children were picked up at each school by the bus manufactured in 1986 which had run with a boarded retro atmosphere around in the city.

In front of the large-sized model of Nogata Station, the children learned that the rail yard in Nogata is still used even the vehicles were changed from the diesel locomotive and the old train.
