The Oume railway park is in Oume city of the suburbs of the west of Tokyo.
This park was made in commemoration of railway the 90th anniversary of the foundation of Japan in 1962.
Now JR east company is managing it. There is not case the locomotive of here works anymore. But, I think it is a precious culture property.
