  1. For forumers living in Japan, just a note that this Friday's late night Tamori Club (TV Asahi 12:20am~) episode will feature Sotetsu and the upcoming run through operation with JR East. Appears to be a two part feature, so the second half episode likely will be next week.
  2. September 28 (Sat)- First use of the imperial train ("omeshi ressha") in the Reiwa era. The emperor went to an event in Ibaraki Prefecture. Routing was Tokyo Station to Katsuta. Video by Ayokoi. Lineside in Ibaraki. Between Takahama and Ishioka. Includes footage of backup train making an emergency stop.
  3. Video by Ayokoi, testing at Nishiya, junction of the Sotetsu Main Line and the connection to the JR Freight Line at Hazawa. Nishiya has a set of layover tracks for terminating services. Once through-running services begin in November, all services (not just locals) will stop at this station. Sotetsu also recently had a press release detailing the service pattern for this new line. Trains will run from Ebina to Shinjuku (4 per hour at peak). A few will continue on in the direction of Omiya (details TBD) https://www.sotetsu.co.jp/news_release/pdf/190716_01.pdf
  4. Jiji Press report on the press preview/track connection ceremony at Sotetsu's new station that connects the new Sotetsu Line extension to Shin-Yokohama/Hiyoshi with the JR Freight Line via a junction just past the platforms. Scheduled to be operational/open 11/30 this year, presumably in conjunction with the autumn timetable revision.
  5. Similar to the Service Quality Improvement video in this thread, JR East has posted another video called Shimei (mission/duty/task).
  6. For those of you like rare equipment, here's JR East's latest KIYA type, a long rail carrier numbered E195. The cab is similar to or the same as some of JR Central's work trains, but that gear behind the cab is odd. A diesel/generator? It and some new KOKI cars were transported from Nippon Sharyo's factory in Toyokawa, Aichi on October 31. by The Dramatic 中央本線。

  8. JR East has refurbed two KIHA 100 cars. They have new interiors, a new livery, and new numbers. Formerly 110-108 and 100-29, they are now 112-711 and 103-711. The service is called the HIGH RAIL 1375. The Koumi Line's highest elevation above sea level is 1,375m, which is the highest elevation of any JR line. Livery and ekiben look good! http://railf.jp/news/2017/06/21/234500.html by ya1964ma by The Dramatic Chuo Main Line

  10. JR East will be opening a railway goods shop called General Store Railyard in the west concourse of Omiya Station. At the link below you can find a pdf illustrating some of the items available. Among other goodies, a few must-haves: JR East pajamas as used on the Hokutosei sleeper service parts pulled from retired rolling stock dining car beef curry Hokutosei spoon and fork set decals as used inside E233 series cars to indicate car designation/number, decals displaying depot and passenger capacity towels, key chains, stationery Kato E651 Swallow Akagi limited edition model This will open Saturday, March 25, 2017. JR East, please take my money. Courtesy of Railfan News. http://railf.jp/news/2017/03/09/174500.html
  11. A substantial zenmen tenbou of the Super Odoriko service, recorded from directly behind the driver on a 251 series EMU. Very good vantage point. I didn't know this run was so long. By uploader HKASAMA.

  13. Cool video by Rail Note. It's only got 87 views right now, check it out :)
  14. JR East's new battery electric multiple unit model on its way from Hitachi's Kasado factory to JRE territory. I wonder if JR Kyushu owns any rights to that carbody design. No good YT vids of it stopped anywhere yet. by Masaharu Aono by KENKENKAICHO by yuuya0381 at Okayama, lots of cabinets (batteries?) under the blue car by cookie 99 at Shin-Kurashiki, viewing the opposite side as the video above. I thought the red car would have those cabinets on this side, but no.
  15. 45 minutes of the trains coming into and leaving the South end of Ikebukuro Station

    Bangkok Purple Line trial runs begin

  21. Interesting list from the JR East website, showing the average age of each type of rolling stock in the fleet: http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/data/procurement/rolling_stock.html
  22. JR East took delivery of another HB-E300 trainset, intended for service as the Resort Shirakami Buna. Currently there is a modified KIHA40 formation with this name. This left J-Trec as a 3-car set: Car 1, HB-E301-5 Car 2, HB-E300-105 Car 4, HB-E302-5 Obviously car 3 is missing; its body will be also be built by J-Trec, but will be shipped to Akita Depot for final assembly. A tour of the train is scheduled for July 9 before revenue operation begins on July 16th. I think it's a nice basic design and a pleasant color/livery, even if it's just a wrap. Buna means Japanese beech, which I guess is what's illustrated on the side of the train. From a railfan point of view, this type has large windshields as well as large windows behind the driver's station, making for a nice view ahead (visible in these threads http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/7337-jr-east-tsugaru-line-shin-aomori-to-mimmaya and http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/3415-some-tohoku-scenery and I thought Bill posted some recently but now I can't find them :( ) http://railf.jp/news/2016/05/27/170000.html The second video above is at Shitte, and the third is at Nishi-Kokubunji. I assume this traveled by the Musashino South Line (a freight bypass), but after studying a map for literally minutes, I think the Nambu Line would have been possible too. Subsequent locations are Fukiage and Takasaki, so I guess they're just going straight up the Joetsu Line to Niigata and then on to Akita along the Sea of Japan. Sounds like a cool ride :). The presumably outgoing KIHA40-based Buna formation at Ueno on April 10 for a sort of open day:
  23. Apologies if this has been posted before, but I noticed that Google Street View (or more accurately, interior view) lets you roam around inside JR East's museum in Omiya, Saitama. Notice that in the lower right of your browser you can choose between three floors and the roof. Useful for those of us who can't seem to get that Japanese vacation organized :) :( https://www.google.com/maps/@35.9205395,139.6182968,3a,75y,182.93h,85.24t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1stcl8JMA9XN9JNmg0VxQw8A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1
