    《中英對照讀新聞》Railway buffs bid farewell to lonely Hokkaido station that opened in 1943 鐵道迷向1943年啟用的偏僻北海道車站道別

    Tourists have been flocking to a secluded railway depot here after it was announced that the 72-year-old station will be shut down this fall.

    在一座有72年歷史的車站被宣布將於今年秋天關閉後,觀光客紛紛湧入這座隱僻的鐵路車站。

    Located between two tunnels that pass through cliffs facing the sea, Koboro Station on the JR Muroran Line is known among railway buffs as a "hikyoeki" (station in a rarely visited area).

    位於穿越眺望大海的峭壁的2座隧道之間,JR北海道室蘭本線的小幌站,在鐵道迷之間以「秘境車站」(鮮少有人造訪的車站)聞名。

    Koboro Station opened in 1943 as a "shingojo"(signal place), where trains wait for other trains to pass. Currently, eight local trains stop at the station each day. However, few people use the depot. According to the Toyoura town government, the population in the remote area dwindled away and disappeared by the mid-1970s.

    小幌站在1943年開站時,是讓列車等候其他列車通過的「信號場」,目前每天有8班普通列車在此停靠。然而,使用者寥寥可數。豐浦鎮公所指出,這個偏僻地區的人口逐漸萎縮,到了1970年代中期完全無人居住。

    This summer, however, many tourists are visiting the station during the midsummer Bon holidays as Hokkaido Railway Co.(JR Hokkaido), operator of the Muroran Line, told the town government that it will close the depot at the end of October at the earliest.

    不過,在負責經營室蘭本線的JR北海道告訴該鎮,最快會在今年10月底廢站後,許多遊客在今年夏天的盂蘭盆節期間造訪該車站。
