  1. 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
  2. This is from several months back, but an E233 set (2000 sub series Mato 10) used on Joban Line local service was sent to Nagano General Rolling Stock Center to be fitted with CBTC equipment. After a stay of almost three weeks*, it returned to its depot at Matsudo, pulled by an EF64 based out of the Nagaoka Rolling Stock Center. Locations are Hachioji and Kunitachi. *apparently fitting of CBTC equipment is quite involved/complicated, it required about 10 days per trainset for London Underground Northern Line stock to be fitted with like equipment.
  3. Here's a video of a depot open day, which is nothing new. In this case it's at Nagano, last October. But Nagano is one of JRE's scrapping sites, and there are several cars in this video waiting for the shears, as well as a few that seem to have escaped their fate (at least for now), including EF62 3 and a 253 series Narita Express end car. It gives you some indication of the upkeep routines that must be in place; have a look at its appearance after just a few years of neglect.

    Usui Pass, 1997

    Here's footage by YT uploader KAZUOo50 from the area on September 12th and 13th, 1997. Operations here ended just a few weeks later on October 1st. This is a full 56 minutes, serious fans only, please
  5. A 45min TV program of the Hokuriku Shinkansen, to be operational in 2014. Some interesting info about construction financing and subsidies, as well as 3rd sector operations, for those who understand Japanese. Make sure to check out an aerial ride above the whole length of the Hokuriku Shinkansen from Nagano to Kanazawa at 5:30. Also some CG renderings of the Toyama Station, at 38:55, and the remodeled Nagano Station, at 44:21. The platforms at Nagano Station have already been lengthened to accomodate the future 12 car trains, up from the current 8 car Asama consists. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj926gndpl0
