Nice spot leaving Kyoto

I just would like to share some photos taken from the train just leaving Kyoto station to Kansai Airport. Close to Kyoto station there is the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum (梅小路蒸気機関車館 Umekōji Jōkikikansha-kan) and a container cargo platform next to it.

Here you can see the exact localization:

I think the steam locomotives of the photo are a C61 and a C55, and in the background you can see the 20 track roundhouse built in 1914:

I love those Koki flat cars and all those small 12-foot containers used in Japan. I hope you like the following photos, and may be they are inspirational for any weathering work in your layouts:
