Kyoto has some fine attractions including the railway museum and we visited here while staying with friends in Takamatsu. The contrast between the museum and the modern railway station in Kyoto is extreme and visiting both places is very worthwhile. There are some more posts to be found on this blog that include views in Kyoto, Takamatsu and other locations in Japan, so if you are interested, just put in a search at the top of the right hand sidebar.
When we visited the museum there were two locomotives in steam that were running up and down the small passenger line, though it would be fantastic to see one of these mighty engines in full cry out on the main line with the sound of the exhaust echoing back from cutting sides and bridges. What a sight that must be.
