With the AC electrification in the Kyushu area in 1961, the AC / DC switching connection station with the DC section of the Sanyo Main Line became Moji Station, and the EF30 AC / DC electric locomotive was active in the Kanmon tunnel section between them. Since it is used in a special environment such as an undersea tunnel, it is characterized by having a stainless steel body for rust prevention. Since driving in the AC section is limited to driving inside Moji Station, the output in the AC section is kept low, and there are many unique features such as driving the driving wheels of two axes of one bogie with one motor. You can see it. In the case of passenger trains (blue trains, luggage trains, etc.), it was used as a single machine, and in the case of freight trains, it was used as a heavy train, but by the time of the transition to JR in 1987, most of them had given up their role to EF81. I erased.
