Wagakuni Tetsudo Hassho no Chi Monument Reviews
う～ん、どの段階で発祥と定めるのか素人の私には分かりませんが、商業鉄道としての初運行といえば歴史で学んだ新橋～横浜間ではないのかと個人的には思います。横浜とよく似ていてあちこちに「○○発祥の地」多いですね。 more »Well, I don't know at what stage it originated, but I personally think that the first operation as a commercial railway is between Shinbashi and Yokohama, which I learned in history. It is very similar to Yokohama, and there are many "birthplaces" here and there.
この「我が国鉄道発祥の地」の由来となった出来事は、英国人貿易商のトーマス・グラバーが、記念碑のある場所から南西の海岸沿いに約600mの線路を敷き、英国製機関車を走らせたそうです。 グラバーは日本にも売り込むつもりだったようで、蒸気機関車に2両の客車を連結し、約1カ月間の試乗運転を実施したとあります。 それが、新橋⇄品川の7年前。 だから、鉄道の初めての場所という由来だそうです。 more »The event that came from this "birthplace of our railways" was that Thomas Glover, a British trader, laid a 600m track along the southwest coast from a monument alright and ran a British locomotive. Glover seems to have intended to sell to Japan, and it is said that two passenger cars were connected to the steam locomotive, and the test drive was carried out for about one month. That was seven years ago in Shinbashi Shinagawa. Therefore, it seems to be the origin of the first place of the railway.
