West Japan Railway Co. (JR West) said it plans to preserve all seven cars involved in a train derailment in Hyogo Prefecture that killed 106 people in 2005 at an employee training center in Suita, Osaka Prefecture, without opening them to the public.

JR West will use the cars for safety education. The plan was unveiled at a meeting in Itami, Hyogo Prefecture, on Saturday that included victims’ relatives and people who were injured in the accident, some of whom did not agree with the decision.
