  1. JR East will loan a diesel railcar set for use on the Soya Line, while Tokyu will provide the Royal Express trainset which will be used on a yet undetermined itinerary from Sapporo to Eastern Hokkaido. The Royal Express is a DC EMU, so in AC and unelectrified JR Hokkaido territory, it will be pulled by a set of diesel locomotives coupled with a generator car providing hotel power.
  2. After a prolonged absence the webcam (with sound) or the Tokaido line and Yurikamome tracks near Shiodome is working again

    Suburban Tokyo Themed Layout

    Hello everyone! Today marks one of the first days that I've begun work on an actual (hopefully) N-Scale layout! As these first two pictures demonstrate, I finally arranged a deal to get some space for a small layout, which at the moment is 16' × 2' (really only 20", because of the upper shelf support poles.) Eventually, when time, useable space and family permit, I have plans to expand it into a reversed 'F' shape, through the use of additional shelves along a different wall, and a heavy duty wooden center island table left over from some HO-scale projects. The shelving on the rear wall will the be top part of the letter 'F', and will add about 11' by 2' (again, only 20" of that useable). Final dimensions of the center island table TBD. (Possibly 5' × 6'?) I'll try and post the potential track plan(s) later tonight! I am also always open to feedback, so please chime in, it might really help me out! Thanks for your interest! ~Phillip R.
  4. Continued from E353: JR East's E351 replacement? Wow... E257 on Tokaido main line services? Wouldn't that mean lesser E233s and their double deck cars on it? I'm still waiting for one of the modellers to do the E353... i'm guessing Kato, since Tomix didn't even did the E351 nor the E257...
  5. Alongside the new Shinkansen test train, JR East has announced the KiHa E130-500 for use on the Hachinohe Line. The first units of these will be delivered in August this year, out of a total 18 cars having been ordered. (Source: http://railf.jp/news/2017/07/04/165500.html) JR East has also announced a prototype of 3 vehicles of the GV-E400 series, a diesel-electric (?) multiple unit train. The mass-production units of this series will be introduced on the Uetsu Main Line, Shin'etsu Main Line, Yonesaka Line and Ban'etsu West Line in the Niigata region in 2019. In 2020 they will be introduced on the Tsugaru Line, Gono Line and Ou Main Line in the Akita region. (Source: http://railf.jp/news/2017/07/04/170000.html)
  6. Hello all, after a bit of silence on my behalf, here is the excuse for my absence. A trip to Kinugawa in Tochigi and after that to Ibaraki, the usual place and then some. Kinugawa no. 5 just arrived in Shinjuku. 253-1000 Series, big time baller. Massive chairs. Weird livery, which I slowly start to appreciate. Some train from the window we overtook. With advertisement. I don't know what this thing is. Yours truly and mini-yours truly. Brainwashing completed. "Look dad! A train!" "Yes, that is probably the 10th Keihin-Tōhoku line train we've seen already..." First encounter with an Aizu Railway train. AT-600 and AT-700 type. My excitement was all over the place. The trip on the JR East Kinugawa was most pleasant. If possible, I'd ride it again, but only to go beyond Kinugawa-Onsen station to Aizu Wakamatsu station. The view from the hotel room was... Well, let's say: almost perfect. Another exciting encounter was had a few days later with the seasonal rapid Ashikaga Ōfuji Matsuri-gō, ran by a 485 Series, T18 formation. Probably for one of the last times this formation runs. One end of the train is an Hokkaidō styled front with double roof lights. Very macho. xD Next to that, the Kasama Hi Matsuri-gō Rapid service ran with an E531 Series. Special headmark included. I actually didn't know this one was running, so I was very surprised to see it! In the attachments are some extras that aren't really worth mentioning, but are still interesting enough to share. A bad snapshot of the recently repainted Tōbu 100 Series Spacia 101 formation is included as well. Yes. It's gold. Like Spandau Ballet. The Tōbu 6050 Series also almost stole my heart, but my finances and rationale keep me at bay from liking it. This trip has however seriously triggered my interest in creating hillside scenery. P.s. Don't like my filthy hipster filters over some pictures? Feel free to donate a good digital camera. PM me if interested.
  7. As a test run today pointed out, it looks like we will be seeing E231s on the Hachiko Line in the near future. These are former B5 formations renumbered into the E231-3000 subseries.
  8. Hello everyone, We have released the new FREEWARE content, Tokyu 9000 series. With detailed interior & exterior as real as realistic, animated door. You don't need to pay for this content! Download Now
  9. Part of a former JR East 583 series will be preserved in the railway museum in Taipei. Strangely enough, it concerns only intermediate cars MoHaNe 582-106 and MoHaNe 583-106. Source: https://response.jp/article/2017/11/20/302721.html
  10. A video dated March 15, 2016 of the E235 Series station announcements in both Japanese and English.
  11. Speaking theoretically starting from Tokyo-eki with a ¥200 ticket, how long could you theoretically stay "in-the-system" without leaving through a single fare-gate or ticket booth--in essence "live in the JR-East system" (not specifically Tokyo-Eki or any other single station)? Just to make it fun, I've added a poll. For even more fun, let's see if someone will actually try it ^_^
  12. With the upcoming opening of the Ueno Tokyo Line, JR East has announced the special trains (rinji ressha) typically running on weekends and holidays, that will utilize this route: -Ltd. Express Odoriko 161/162 Abiko to Izukyu Shimoda and return, 7 or 10 car 185 series -Express Burari Yokohama/Kamakura-go Iwaki to Kamakura and return, 7 car 651 series -Ltd. Express Kinugawa 92/93 Ofuna to Kinugawa Onsen and return, 6 car 253 series http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2015/01/23/312/
  13. This Thursday JR East announcened preliminary plans for through services on the Ueno-Tokyo Line which is scheduled to open this March. Summary as follows: 1. Utsunomiya and Takasaki Line trains will run through on the Tokaido Line south of Shinagawa. 2. Joban Line trains will terminate at Shinagawa. 3. During the 8~9am peak, 5 up trains from each of the three lines will operate over the line. *however, the Joban Line through trains will only be rapid services originating at Toride. 4. All off-peak ltd express services from the Joban Line will terminate/originate at Shinagawa. Likewise a portion of services will do so in the evening peak period. 5. Off-peak a portion of Joban Line local services originating in Tsuchiura will terminate/originate at Shinagawa, and in the evening peak, rapid services for points south of/to Toride will terminate/originate at Shinagawa. 6. Two limited express services will be introduced on the Joban line, the Hitachi will be configured as a limited stop service, while the new Tokiwa service will have more stops. These services will introduce a simpler limited express tariff system, as well as existing ticketless service using smart/mobile phones. http://www.jreast.co.jp/press/2014/20141022.pdf *in the TV news report, it was stated that almost all up direction Tokaido Line trains will continue on to Ueno (and beyond?), presumably as either Utsunomiya or Takasaki Line services.
  14. Hello there. I am a Filipino railfan. I would like to know the specs of the Kiha 52 and Kiha 59. Thanks
  15. Railway Safety Slipping? The Tokyu Toyoko line rear end crash and now this?! Apparently at 1:11 on the morning of the 23rd an out of service 10 car keihin tohoku line train appears to have struck an engineering works trolley at Kawasaki (looks from photographs like overhead line equipment). The impact overturned the first car and derailed two others. The conductor (34) and driver (25) both escaped with minor injuries. The accident has resulted in the suspension of operations between Kamata and Tsurumi stations. See photos and full article at from Asahi: http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASG2R0J1WG2QUTIL01W.html More ATC issues?
  16. The replacement for the 205 series on the Saikyo line has arrived, still on test at the moment.
  17. I got some positive feedback in the chatroom about my posting of a cab view video of JR West's Yuttari Yakumo service (http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/5821-jr-west-hakubi-line-yuttari-yakumo-full-ride-okayama-to-izumo-shi/) on the Hakubi Line, particularly about how parts of it are single tracked. Well, from a posting by loefet on SSC, I found this excellent recording of JR East's Resort Yamadori train on the Agatsuma Line running from Takasaki to Manza-Kazawaguchi and I thought some people may enjoy it as well, it seems almost like a Kanto-area version of the Hakubi Line. JR East rolled out the 6-car Resort Yamadori train in 2011, a rework of two separate, older 485 series-based excursion trains, the Seseragi and the Yamanami. The set is based at Takasaki Depot and is named after the Gunma Prefectural bird, the copper pheasant. by YT uploader raraemondayo777: http://yossee.main.jp/train2/yamadori/index.html http://www.jreast.co.jp/tabidoki/resorttrain/yamadori/index.html http://www.jreast.co.jp/takasaki/yamadori/index.html http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%AA%E3%82%BE%E3%83%BC%E3%83%88%E3%82%84%E3%81%BE%E3%81%A9%E3%82%8A http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agatsuma_Line http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_Pheasant
