I just found this interesting video on YouTube of various train melodies you hear in the train before they make a public announcement:



I do like they included the ones used on all Shinkansen lines. By the way, someone refresh me on the name of the song you hear in 7:35 to 7:47 of this video, which was used in a travel marketing campaign many years ago.

I like this video, the songs featured are really nostalgic! Love those shinkansen ones!  That song on Twlight express.. lovely...


Having rode long distances on the Wide View Hida and the Shinano, that song on the Tokai Limited Express just brings back memories...
