    I pointed this one out a few days ago.

    Thanks anyway, Rick!:wink:

    Guess I should have looked a little deeper before posting.:(

    The more I look at this one, the more interesting it appears.

    The Japanese love trains and, for some reason, they really love the D51 locomotive. I spent a number of years in Misawa, a small town in northern Honshu. My kids played on this loco in the central park in downtown Misawa. Those were the good old days. :)

    Small World!

    I was stationed in Iwakuni twice during my time with the Marines. That was in the early '80's. Did you get to Hiroshima while you were there?

    If you visit this web site and enter D51 in the search page, you'll find a few more pictures of this loco. Notice that the top of the peak of the engine (don't know what that part is called) is rounded, not flat as the model's.

    I landed in Hiroshima once on a flight up to Misawa. Never got off the plane, though. It was in 1980, if I recall.
