C60 1 Apr. 1999 Sakuragaoka koen Park in Sendai City
The type C60 was a type C59 (an express passenger locomotive used for main lines) with the shaft arrangement changed to 4-6-4 to reduce the shaft weight. As a result, the number of line sections where it could be used was expanded. From 1953 to 1961, 47 were converted at Japan National Railways (JNR) Hamamatsu and Koriyama factories. Since among the C59 locomotives to be converted, some were built before the war and some built after the war, and their specifications and appearance were different, the new type numbers were divided into C60 1-39 and C60 101-108. They were used in Kyushu and on the Tohoku and Joban lines until 1971. Currently 1 is preserved statically (refers to locomotives that are preserved in a way that does not allow them to be immediately operated, and/or that are simply on display) in Sendai.
