About MaITe 58 class by Masuzushi

A first-class observation car manufactured by the Japanese National Railways. It was returned from the Occupation Forces after WW2 and was used on the limited express train “Hato.”
It features a three-axle bogie, which is rare among Japanese passenger cars.
It is one of the vehicles that became the model for Galaxy Express 999, and the 999 head mark was attached.
The head mark data was traced and processed from "HM Storage Room" (https://charitabi.com/hm/event/galaxy-express-999-h.html).
