World Railways Expo 2016


In unison with the World Railways Expo 2016 at Pacifico Yokohama running through Sept. 11th, the Hara Railway Museum will also focus on international displays. Hara will be running trains with international flair in the minute Z gauge through a special German village diorama. They will also be loaning some of their trains to the Expo that have never been on display, even at their museum.

From his nearly 200 trips abroad, Hara Nobutaro collected a multitude of railroad paraphernalia and interesting antiques. Related to the theme of the event, they have been borrowed from the private gallery at his home to be put on display for all to enjoy for the first time at Hara Model Railway Museum. While the kids are enjoying the trains, train buffs can peruse the interesting collection of train plates, timetable books used by Thomas Cook himself, and more.
