World's Tiniest Functional Steam Locomotive Made in Japan


A small functional steam locomotive was built in Japan alongside the Hanshin railway near to Iwaya Park.

The tiny steam locomotive runs on charcoal that is stuffed into the engine. Despite its small size, the locomotive is able to carry up to 20 people simultaneously.

Both children and grownups can ride the steam locomotive, which can travel around a 100-meter long railway track at a speed of 10kph, informs Chottomatte.

Some online sources say that it was developed to mark the opening of the new JR Nada station.

Currently there's no information on the creator of this steam locomotive.
