Pretty sure this will interest some.  Some nice old pics from 50-80s.

 

Was on the old original Nagasaki Line before the current short distance line was opened.

 

Opened in 1943, the station was on a gradient, so they built a switchback so the platform could be flat.

 

Station now has the the frogs and blades removed.  And only a flag style platform with gradient exists.

I wonder what model train sets now use the old Nagasaki Main Line east of Nagasaki. I believe they're old KiHa 66/67 and newer KiHa 125 models, which will be supplemented by the new YC-1 diesel/electric hybrid later this year (2019).

You would be correct. Also Kiha 40/47/48s. I'm sure I've seen 31s in pics also. But not sure if recent or not.
