Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.

Imagination is the beginning of creation.

You fantasize your wishes, then you wish for what you fantasized about, and finally you create what you fantasized about.

It all started with an idea that popped into my head, just like a diorama.

A real railway is run on the premises of a model railway factory. No matter how far-fetched the idea may be, and no matter how difficult it may be to make it a reality, the Sekisui Main Line would not have been born without that idea and without that strong desire.

Probably the newest narrow gauge railway on the planet (for now) is the Sekisui Main Line.

The spiritual foundation of the Sekisui Main Line lies in Britain, the birthplace of railways. In addition to imitating the designs of vehicles and buildings, volunteer work is seen as a status in life, natural gardens are created with the aim of coexisting in harmony with the natural world, and Tsukumogami believe that old things have value. I learned a lot from that country, including ways of thinking similar to faith.

​Unfortunately, this is a railway within a working factory, so it is normally closed to the public.

I think we will be able to tell you more about the opening date and operation of the Sekisui Main Line in the spring of 2024.

​For now, we will introduce some of the vehicles on the Sekisui Main Line and the beautiful garden that enriches the railway scenery.
