本物のディーゼル機関車の運転体験ができます。機関士さんのからマスコンやブレーキの操作法について簡単な実地での説明を受けたら、エンジンを始動。レールパーク行内の線路約100メートルを往復します。なにせ約50トンの従量がある本物のディーゼル機関車だけにマスコンを操作しエンジンが吹き上がるとものすごい迫力を感じます。減速・停止の操作はブレーキをかけてから実際に制動がかかるまでのタイムラグが大きくなかなか苦労しました。横川などにも同様の施設はありますが、簡単な現地での説明だけで即運転させてくれる施設は初めてで、短

発荷峠展望台より20m標高が高い十和田湖を眺める展望台です

樹海ラインのほぼ終点間近の左手にある展望台で、発荷峠展望台より標高が20m高い位置にあります。 駐車場も広く整備されています。 ただ木々に覆われ展望台がパーキングより見えず見過ごしてしまう可能性があるので注意して立ち寄りが必要です。 昭和二年に十和田湖が日本八景に入選した際の記念碑が建立されています。 二階建ての展望台からの十和田湖の景色はもちろんとても奇麗でした。
