The Koutetsujou (甲鉄城, lit. Iron Fortress) is a Hayajiro from Aragane Station. After crossing through Hayatani Station and stopping at Aragane Station, it was used to evacuate Aragane's survivors once the station was breached and overrun by Kabane.
History[edit | edit source]
The koutetsujou was first seen being attacked by kabanes, presumably going to Aragane Station.
Known Passengers[edit | edit source]
Design[edit | edit source]
The Koutetsujou looks almost like a steam locomotive. It is made almost entirely of heavy metal components and it has numerous ports and slits found along its body to allow the internal Bushi to repel any kabanes that have latched on outside. A master key is required to operate the Koutetsujou, which can be inserted in a keyhole in the crew compartment.
The locomotive recently acquired a new cannon after its successful passage of the Yashiro Station.
The locomotive is capable of running at high speeds (based on episode 1 the train seemed to move at about 90-100 Miles per hour).
The Koutetsujou is also an effective mower of kabanes that stand on the rail tracks due to what appears to be a razorlike plow at its front.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
While it is difficult to ascertain the locomotive's wheel arrangement due to the various side skirts covering the wheels, it is likely that it is a large articulated design - a Kitson-Meyer type, or something even more unusual.
