The locomotives were imported from the United States. The locomotives were produced by the American company H. K. Porter, Inc. Two were purchased in 1880 (Nos. 368, 369), two more in 1882 (Nos. 487, 488), one in 1884 (No. 643), one in 1885 (No. 672), and two more in 1889 (Nos. 1009, 1010), for a total of eight. Six of the locomotives were named after major historical or literary figures in 1889, at the suggestion of the Japanese Consul of New York City, Takagi Saburō, who found appeal in the similar practice seen in the United States at the time. Thus, the six became known as Yoshitsune, Benkei, Hirafu, Mitsukuni, Nobuhiro, and Shizuka. - wikipedia

As locomotivas foram importadas dos Estados Unidos. elas foram produzidas pela empresa americana HK Porter, Inc. Duas foram compradas em 1880 (n. º s 368, 369), mais duas em 1882 (n. º s 487, 488), uma em 1884 (n º 643), uma em 1885 (n º 672), e mais dois em 1889 (n. º s 1009, 1010),num total de oito. Seis das locomotivas receberam nomes de grandes figuras históricas ou literárias em 1889, por sugestão do cônsul japonês de New York City, Takagi Saburō, que tirou a idéia de prática semelhante vista nos Estados Unidos da época. Assim, seis delas se tornaram conhecidas como Yoshitsune, Benkei, Hirafu, Mitsukuni, Nobuhiro, e Shizuka.
