I think I saw you squid! Tenticles all over the window waving!

 

After my first minute there was a pass of 4 trains and a Shinkansen at once. Not the charm of wakamatsu, but lots o trians!

27 minutes or so before I pass, must have been someone else. (Got bored of working at home so currently misusing JR as a mobile office ;) )

Great find, pretty good variety on the shinkansen line too.  I noticed a bunch of the e233's have one motor car with a second pantograph not in use, is this a back up of some kind?

There'll be an E5 passing shortly heading away from the camera

Did you manage to snap a picture of the camera as you passed?

Nope, but I did take a screenshot of the train I'm (still) in as it went past:

I found this myself by accident when I got home from work at lunch time, I'm still watching it at 7.30.

Heh, I should be able to watch myself going past.

Noooo squid, you will end up in a twilight zone episode where you go into an infinite mirror and the train winds up in the twilight zone...

As it was the Saikyo line I'd probably be doing it a favour.
