History: The Taki 25000 is a dedicated LP gas vehicle, and 310 cars have been manufactured since 1966. For the first time as a high-pressure gas tank car, the heat insulating material and the wave-removing plate are omitted, and the capacity of 25 tons is secured while achieving the reduction of its own weight. It was mainly used for transportation from LPG bases in the harbor area to local stockpiling bases and LPG stations, and was used as a miscellaneous freight train and dedicated freight train.

The Taki 25000, which first appeared as a single product, was seen to be active in various places from the time of the Japanese National Railways to 2005 (2005) after the transition to JR. You can enjoy the reproduction of freight trains from the JNR era, where various freight cars are lined up, and the formation consisting of only Taki 25000.

Japan Freight Railway Company (日本貨物鉄道株式会社 Nihon Kamotsu Tetsudō Kabushiki-gaisha), or JR Freight (JR貨物 Jeiāru Kamotsu), is one of the constituent companies of Japan Railways Group (JR Group). It provides transportation of cargo nationwide. Its headquarters are in Shibuya, Tokyo near Shinjuku Station.

The Japan Railways Group was founded on April 1, 1987, when Japanese National Railways (JNR) was privatized, and then divided into six regional companies and Japan Freight Railway Company. Although the passenger operation of JNR was split into six companies, fares and regulations are standard for all companies and every region of Japan except Okinawa is covered by the railway network spanning approximately 19,800 kilometres (12,300 mi).

Formerly part of JNR, the freight operation was not divided and became a single separate company when JNR was privatized and split. Although it has only about fifty kilometers of track of its own, it also operates on track owned by the JR passenger railways and other companies. The company uses the initials JRF as an abbreviated name for identification.
