Odakyu today announced that a new series of rolling stock will be introduced sometime in the current fiscal year. Designated the 5000 series, it will be the first new rolling stock added to the fleet in 12 years. Features include a wide body cross-section, extensive use of glass for airiness, security cameras (first time for Odakyu) and a wheelchair space in each car. No mention of maker, but the artist impression makes it look like a Nippon Sharyo product, particularly around the doors. https://trafficnews.jp/post/85696
