Brick garage

Once on the south side of the station, there was a garage made entirely of bricks. This "Itoigawa Station Locomotive Garage No. 1", commonly known as "Brick Garage (Red Brick Garage)"1912(TaishoCompleted in December, the total floor area is 12.m2Had.

Both gable walls and all under the girders were made of pure brick, and could store three rows of two-car trains of locomotives and passenger cars. Even after 2 years have passed since the construction, the damage to the housing is still small, and it continues to be used as an active facility.In addition, most of the similar garages that were once located all over the country have been abolished / removed, so It was an extremely valuable existence. However, as the Hokuriku Shinkansen construction progressed, it became necessary to use part of the premises as the Shinkansen platform site, and JR West and the Railway and Transportation Organization began studying the removal of the garage.

However, since the brick garage has a high historical value as mentioned above, it was relocated to the new South Exit station square after the station was rebuilt by the Hikiya method,LandmarkWith the aim of utilizing it as one of the activities, volunteers in the local community developed a conservation movement, and a local construction company and others established the “Brick Garage Fund Executive Committee” to raise funds. In response to these movements, Itoigawa City proceeded with a study on the relocation of the brick garage, but since the relocation by the Hikiya would cost more than 3 million yen, Toru Yoneda Mayor Itoigawa mayor2009(21)11/10After making a final decision that "the Hikiya relocation is impossible" and announced the formal abandonment of the plan, he expressed his intention to continue to discuss cutting and preservation of parts with JR West.

Then, as a result of the discussion, JR West will be the city on the condition that the city will be the main business operator, the city will bear the cost of cutting and saving, and that the cutting and saving work will not hinder the Shinkansen construction. Contracted for construction from a total of 3 m2We reached an agreement to cut off the wall surface of the minute part and transfer it to the city free of charge, and Mayor Yoneda at the regular press conference on February 2010, 22 (Heisei 2), the train entrance on the west side of the garage and part of the wall on the south side Officially announced the policy of cutting and saving, and included a dismantling construction cost of 25 million yen in the new fiscal budget. In this way, the brick garage was decommissioned with the timetable revision in March of the same year, closed after the memorial event "Sayonara Concert" sponsored by JR West Kanazawa Branch on March 1, and cut and saved in the middle of April. After carrying out the process, the remaining part was dismantled and removed. The removal costs themselves will be fully borne by the Railway and Transportation Organization, and the demolished bricks and rails and other structures will be transferred from JR West to the city. Reused for maintenance, partly processed as a souvenir and sold to railway fans and citizens[N 11].

The exterior wall of this entrance face was decided to be restored and rebuilt in front of the station building by being incorporated into the design of the Alps entrance station square, and at the same time, the above-mentioned "Itoigawa Geo Station Geopal" was opened on the first floor of the station building, which was once large. The Kiha 1 type railcar that was running on the thread line will be statically stored, and the vehicle that was transferred to the city free of charge was repaired after being scrapped.Kanazawa General Vehicle StationAfter being stored indoors at, it was brought in on November 2014, 26 as the construction of the Alps mouth station building progressed.

The Brick Garage Fund also fulfilled its original purpose in the form of partial preservation, and by the spring of 2014, about 150 million yen was collected from all over the country to end the fund-raising activities. The fund gathered in the same year for the purpose of utilizing it for the production of video software that disseminates the history and charm of the brick garage4/7Was donated to the city by Mayor Yoneda and said, "I would like to consider from a comprehensive perspective so that the attractiveness of the station can be enhanced, and I would like to make the best use of it as an administration."[28].

The monument, which was restored and rebuilt in the station square, is self-supporting due to the steel pillars installed on the back side, and the concrete used for binding the foundations and bricks has a business office on the west side of the station.Akeboshi CementProvided by.
