In the Showa era, when railroads accounted for a large portion of parcel transportation, postal cars and luggage cars connected to passenger trains were responsible for this. Along with the increase in transport volume, freight-only trains began to operate, and express freight trains were also operated on trunk lines.
On the Tohoku Main Line, mail and freight trains headed north from the Sumidagawa Freight Station, which was dedicated to freight in the metropolitan area, and connected various parts of the Tohoku region. In addition, there is also an operation called "shipping" that crosses the Tsugaru Straits from Aomori to Hokkaido on the Seikan Ferry, and in Hokkaido, express trains such as "Niseko" and "Daisetsu" and mail connected to local trains.

Ideal for use with EF56 or EF57 locomotives.
