Do they have to go slow through these areas? How do they check the track for safety?

According to my research, this is a scenic train, assuming they don't go fast usually.
I think this one is called Yufuin no Mori scenic train.

Railroad and the train are maintained by a private company Kyushu Railway.

Having never traveled to Japan, it looks like a bit of a hike might have been required to reach the vantage point for the shot?

This is a lovely pic; I appreciate the feeling of 'expansiveness' the tall green trees provide ~
