    what a week

    First, this DE10 rides up on ice and derails in Akita. While not doubting Japan's well maintained and well operated railways, I have difficulty believing that this has never happened before. Maybe it lost its balance because the digits in its road number aren't on straight, it's really driving me nuts. This is the Akita Rinkai Railway, and while trying to figure out where the hell it actually is (Google Map requires you to be significantly zoomed in to show it), I found that they are unfortunately ending operations in March. At least this guy has an excuse for driving something wildly off c
  2. I was interested in trains when I lived in Japan, but I wasn't clued in and the internet was only starting to become the clearinghouse of information that it is now. Despite living reasonably close to depots that would have had open days, I never went to one, and at this point if I get back to Japan ever, I'll be a bit surprised. Well the guys at JR East Akita Depot have really come through with a little Christmas gift, an "online tour" of their facility via Zoom that they have now posted on YouTube. Looks like they did this 3 times on December 19. Most of it appears to be live, and they d
  3. This came up on JR East's own YouTube channel: On the 10th and 11th of October 2020, JR East operated this train as part of a day-trip package from Akita station out to Oga, where one can enjoy some natural hot springs and various other attractions. Leaving Akita at 9:50 and arriving at Oga station at 10:44, passengers would transfer to a chartered bus to go on one of two different routes. Both include lunch and a dip in a hot spring. The return train journey departed Oga at 4:06 PM and ended at Akita at 5:01. All fine and good, but the rail portion of the trip

    Mystery piece fell off my DE10

    Greetings all. I was starting on a decoder installation for my DE10 (Kato 7011-2). As I carefully, gently started to remove the shell, a small black plastic part of length approximately 5 mm fell off. I'm stumped if I can work out where it belongs. If anyone can point me in the right direction for reattaching this part in the right location, I would appreciate that. The 3 attached photos show the part in question. Thanks! TTW
  5. First I thought this was the truest expression of tetsudou mania I'd seen in a while--someone noticed that EF510-1 was taken to Umekoji (from Suita, not its home base of Toyama) to be turned 180 degress. Is this for wheel wear? Or maybe for repair purposes, as it wasn't driven there under its own power? But then, it seems common to use a DE10 or whatever to move other locos around. Handy having Umekoji available, else they'd have wye it somewhere. http://railf.jp/news/2015/01/23/163000.html
  6. HD300-501, the first 500 subseries unit of the HD300 hybrid locomotive, has arrived in Hokkaido at Naebo Depot. All have been built by Toshiba. The title of the video below, by tobu2181, says it's a cold weather variant. http://railf.jp/news/2014/11/09/173000.html
  7. Yesterday. Combined delivery of a Tokyo Metro 1000 series for the Ginza Line and a DD60 diesel locomotive for the Kanagawa Rinkai Railway.
  8. It looks better head-on rather than three-quarters, imo...
