Recommended Posts

Video by Ayokoi, testing at Nishiya, junction of the Sotetsu Main Line and the connection to the JR Freight Line at Hazawa. Nishiya has a set of layover tracks for terminating services.  Once through-running services begin in November, all services (not just locals) will stop at this station.

Sotetsu also recently had a press release detailing the service pattern for this new line.  Trains will run from Ebina to Shinjuku (4 per hour at peak). A few will continue on in the direction of Omiya (details TBD)

That will add a bit of welcome variety on the western side of the Yamanote line.

The first non-Sotetsu train to run on the Sotetsu network: a Saikyo Line E233-7000.

That explains the Saikyo line E233 (Test Run) running past Musashi-Kosugi Station and on the freight line at Shin- Kawasaki station, heading towards Yokohama.
