View Coaster Kazekko Aizu-Tadami Scenic Railway -201010-

びゅうコースター 風っこ 会津只見号(トロッコ列車)〜201010〜

View Coaster Kazekko is series of scenic railway train cars called “Joyful Train” that JR East obtained. They are remodeled Diesel Train Type KiHa 48 series with big removable windows on both sides of the cars. In winter stoves are used to heat the cars.

Kazekko, I believe, comes from Wind's Child, and is a colloquial way to say “Kaze no ko”. Kazekko also sounds a bit like a local, traditional, nursery rhyme type of saying.
