Very nice. Commuters that use Sotetsu no longer have to fight the crowds at Yokohama Station to change trains to reach Shibuya and Shinjuku.

Norimono News took a ride from Nishiya to Shinjuku pre-opening recently.  At Hazawa Yokohama Kokudai you can see the center tracks past the station throat enter the still-under construction Toyoko Line connection, and  later some good views of the Shin-Kawasaki freight yards, where the routing is directly opposite of the Yokosuka Line:

Do you think Gami gives them permission to use his videos? Does he work for them?

I would think so, after all it was likely the affiliation with Norimono that allowed him press access to the preview ride.

I like Gami more than the suitsu guy... Gami speaks clearer and slower and feels much more professional, whereas Suitsu speaks WAY too fast and tend to be on the 'playful' side:

Suit speaks through the entire video which is annoying, especially to someone who knows precious little Japanese.

Hai Hai Hai hai Minasan Konichiwa Gami desu

sorry I've been itching to say that for some reason

way to end the thread, Ross.

English language coverage of the link.

 

Sotetsu Link inaugurated

 

Built and owned by JRTT, at a cost of ¥111·4bn, the 2·7 km link will enable Sotetsu to operate through trains to central Tokyo from its Y-shaped suburban network west of Yokohama. Regular services from Futamata-gawa to Shinjuku are scheduled to start running on November 30, with the first train departing from Ebina at 05.43.

This thread is for videos and pictures of the new Sōtetsu through service. This way it's easy to find a video if you're looking for one. If any members in Japan have any photos, posting them here would be appreciated. Thanks!
