ALBUM OF ROLLING STOCKS USED BY JAPANESE GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS.

NP (Osaka, Japan?): Liaison Office, Osaka Railway Division, 1947. 4to. 66 pp. Text, primarily in the form of charts, includes types and measurements of main locomotives used for passenger and freight trains, gasoline cars, electric locomotives and cars, passenger cars and freight cars. Mounted through the text are 89 original black and white photographs, each measuring 4 x 6 inches, of the rolling stock, including a picture of the "Dixie Limited, an express train for exclusive use of the Allied Forces, running between Tokyo and Hakata." During World War II, many Japanese companies were consolidated as part of the war effort. With Japan's defeat and occupation by allied forces, the various conglomerates that had been created were broken up by order of the Supreme Commander, Allied Powers. This included the Japanese railway companies, though railroads remained a vital means of transportation not only for locals, but for the occupying forces. Apparently not recorded on OCLC. Light brown paper-covered boards; black lettered title on front board. A very good copy. Item #60276

Price: $1,500.00
