In 1906, despite Kyushu Railway having ordered a luxury passenger train from the J. G. Brill Company in the United States, due to Kyushu Railway being nationalized, there were never any opportunities for the Brill Passenger Car for Kyushu Railway, also known as "ARU RESSHA," to be of service.
The luxury passenger “Train of Dreams,” which included the most luxurious facilities of Japan at the time, revives in the summer of 2015 in Kyushu.
The model is that of the late Mr. Nobutaro Hara, who had an extreme love for railways and was called a god of the global model railway.
Using this model as a base, Mr. Eiji Mitooka made the designs and plans.
Mr. Kento Hara, deputy director of the HARA Model Railway Museum, supervised.
With a luxurious atmosphere of the same quality as the cruise train Seven Stars in Kyushu, it is a blissful D&S train that serves a sweets course produced by Mr. Yoshihiro Narisawa, a chef who continues to cook using the natural environment as his theme.
Welcome to the world of JRKYUSHU SWEET TRAIN "ARU RESSHA".
Thank you for visiting this site.
"ARU RESSHA" ranks next to Seven Stars in Kyushu, and will begin its run as the 10th D&S train.
The charms of the journey with “ARU RESSHA” are the atmosphere of its high quality cabin, which compares to Seven Stars, and enjoying the supreme sweets course made with carefully selected ingredients from Kyushu.
Of course, in the middle of the journey you will enjoy natural scenes when you look from the window, such as mountains and the sea around Kyushu, and the abundance of local hospitality that you can experience at each station will surely bring joy to our customers.
This "ARU RESSHA" has started from my dream of wanting to reproduce one of the model railways that I've encountered.
Inheriting the feelings of Mr. Nobutaro Hara, an expert of the model railway, it is being reproduced in Kyushu.
This time, with Mr. Eiji Mitooka in charge of the train car design, and Mr. Yoshihiro Narisawa in charge of the delectable onboard sweets course, I believe we can deliver a never before experienced railway journey to our customers.
Please take the "ARU RESSHA" and enjoy the attractions of Kyushu.
