Steam locomotives disappeared from the public stages of the Japanese railroad in 1975. Currently, in the forefront are sophisticated trains such as the bullet trains "shinkansen" controlled by high-grade computers. Even in such a modern Japan, steam locomotives are still being preserved and operated on a few routes. This documentary portrays the crew and the trainee who struggle in conditions including oxygen scarcity and heat that reaches 70 degrees Celsius.
