Ohmi Tetsudo Trip #1

05.05OhmiTetsudo-1, originally uploaded by sleepytako.
In the beginning of March I was able to take a day out to ride the entire legnth of the very rural private train line Ohmi Tetsudo 近江鉃道. Ohmi being the old name for the area of Shiga prefecture where the entire length of the railway runs. The Ohmi trains run through the farm and factory dotted inland section of the prefecture somewhat parallel to the JR lines that run through the prime, more populated areas that border Lake Biwa.

Here densha otaku enjoying the day off are taking photos as my train stops in Hino 日野 station waiting for the southbound train to pass.
