JR East is planning to operate a steam locomotive named "SL for Pre-Camgaign 'Destination: Fukushima'". A test run for the operation was doing on the day.
The steam locomotive was runnning through in front of a primary temporary strage site for radioactive contamination from Kanayagawa district
Some railroad buffs came to shoot phots of the steam locomotive on the other side of the temporary strage site. (left picture)
Because uphill slope from Fukushima to Koriyama is so steep, the steam locomotive can not pull coaches alone. Therefore, an electric locomotive helped the steam locomotive. (center picture)
