Modern Transportation Museum

This is a great museum located in Osaka. It is directly below the Osaka Loop Line at Bentencho (Also a stop on the Chuo Subway Line). I find it much better then the Tokyo Transportation Museum. I found it interesting that they had some American prototypes on display including a SF Cable Car and an old Steam Locomotive.
