The 155 series school excursion train was based on the 153 series train, which was the latest at the time, and appeared in 1959 as a vehicle exclusively for school trips for school children who became junior high school students due to the baby boom after the war.
All vehicles have a low roof structure so that there are no restrictions on the entry section to be used, resulting in a unique square body structure.
Since the school excursion train does not treat passengers on the way, priority is given to securing space inside the car, such as narrowing the width of the door for getting on and off. In addition, there were very unique ideas everywhere, such as placing removable large tables in all box seats.
In addition, bright colors of vermilion and yellow are used for school excursions, and it is also called "Hinode-shaped train" from the name of the train used.

-Commercialized the primary form belonging to the Tamachi Train District around 1965, when school trip transportation reached its peak.
