Northern Alps “Trolleybus” Exhibited by one that escaped dismantling Nagano November 14, 17:39 An exhibition of the trolleybus, which has been popular for many years as a vehicle connecting the mountain sightseeing route “Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route” in the Northern Alps, will be exhibited from 14th. It started in Omachi City, Nagano Prefecture. The exhibition began with the trolleybus, which has been nicknamed “Trolleybus”, connecting Kurobe Dam in Toyama Prefecture and Omachi City in Nagano Prefecture.
The “Trolleybus”, which runs by drawing electricity from the overhead line, was supposed to be dismantled after more than half a century of operation, but due to the efforts of fans, only one was spared from dismantling, and from the 14th in Omachi City. The exhibition has started.
At the ceremony held on the 14th, Mr. Yoshimitsu Takashi of Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture, who worked to preserve the “trolleybus”, was also invited and “I loved the packed trolleybus seen from the mountain trail.
I’m grateful to hear the selfishness of wanting to save it somehow. ” Many fans and children came to the venue, wearing uniforms and sitting in the driver’s seat, and taking pictures with a smile.
A 45-year-old fan from Koshigaya City, Saitama Prefecture, said, “I liked the sound transmitted from the vehicle.
I’m happy because I didn’t expect it to come back. “
Mr. Yoshimitsu said, “I’m glad that many people are happy.”
The exhibition will end until the end of this month, but from April next year, it will be exhibited again along with related materials.
