Arakawa Line new *NEW* tram: The 7700 series trams

Recommended Posts

Gordon Werner

Here are some photos online of the new 7700 series Arakawa trams in Tokyo.

 

Note: they are rebuilds of the 7000 series (which were themselves rebuilds) ... they retained the car bodies, and HVAC systems ... everything else (trucks, electrics, etc) is new ... they also enlarged the passenger doors so they are now a meter in width

 

they cost ¥130M each to rebuild as opposed to the ¥180M for each 8900 series tram

 

they are planning to have 8 ... 2 green, 3 maroon, and 3 blue

Old skool livery which is awesome.  I really like it that they have mixed old and new together.

Probably a better chance from Bandai.  Modemo seems to take 5 years for Toden releases.

exactly ... hopefully they'll release it with the different colored 8900s like they did with the 4 8800 colors

Hello,

 

For me it is an unpleasant blend of contemporary and retro features that do not sit well together with my eye.

Yup, the electrical package is VVVF inverters from Toyo Denki, the bogies appear to be similar or identical to the FS91 type found on the 8900 series.  These are cardan shaft drive.
