KIHA 81 made the debut as the first group of the first diesel limited express series KIHA 81 drawing “Limited Express Hatsukari” in the unique form with front engine and pulled later various limited expresses at the top.
KIHA 82-900 emerged by converting the top car of the first version of KIRO 80 in 1968 and later. It is featured window layout it had when it was used as a 1st class (green) car. After it was operated as limited express “Inaho”, “Tsubasa” and “Hitachi”, it was transferred to Hokkaido and ran as “Okhotsk” and “Hokuto”.
