Smallest functional steam locomotive enlivens the old Glory

Locomotive are out of use simply because they pollute too much and waste approximately 60% of the energy generated by using coal. However, those who love the old glories, Japan is the right place to feel those days when locomotives were used. However, the one we’re talking about isn’t a big one but the smallest. Running on pieces of charcoal stuffed into the engine, the smallest locomotive runs on 100 meter long track built alongside the Hanshin railway next to Iwaya Park. The locomotive is capable enough to ferry around 15-20 people at a time with a maximum speed of 7-10 km per hour. Sadly, we don’t know as to who built it or what inspired the creator, but images and video attached here are enough for anyone to appreciate this amazing marvel. More images after the break…
