Just update yet, pls wait!

But unfortunately in this year, in that date also that weekend no scheduled
in JR-EAST Takasaki branch(高崎支社) sections as "SLみなかみ(Minakami)" and "SL碓井(Usui)".
http://www.jreast.co.jp/press/2017/20180112.pdf
Maybe both will be long break with maintenance for GW and after.
In other regions Niigata and Iwate branch's one
"SLばんえつ物語 Banetsu Monogatari" and "SL銀河 Ginga" also no scheduled.

If enough time,
at Rail museum(called "Teppaku") of JR-EAST in Saitama, near JR Omiya stn,
http://www.railway-museum.jp/en/
you may try super high spec "SL operating simulator" if in weekday.
(weekend will be super busy usual, 1 try around 10 min, 500Y)

Also in Kanto region,
in "Mooka(C11, C12)", "Chichibu(C58)",
and "Tobu(C11)" have another SL, but all are not covered TW-PASS.
(C11, C12 are smaller model than C61, D51, C58, C57)
