  1. Here's a video of a depot open day, which is nothing new. In this case it's at Nagano, last October. But Nagano is one of JRE's scrapping sites, and there are several cars in this video waiting for the shears, as well as a few that seem to have escaped their fate (at least for now), including EF62 3 and a 253 series Narita Express end car. It gives you some indication of the upkeep routines that must be in place; have a look at its appearance after just a few years of neglect.
  2. There will be an open day at the Arakawa Line Arakawa Depot this Sunday, from 10am to 1pm. http://www.kotsu.metro.tokyo.jp/newsevent/news/toden/2014/tdn_p_201405124624_h.html Toden #7001 in the revival "akaobi" coloring, debuting last November:
  3. If any of you are going to be in the Kanto area on Sunday December 1st, Tobu is having their open day at the Minami-Kurahashi Depot, a 20 minute walk from Minami-Kurahashi Station on the Tobu Nikko Line. There's also a free shuttle bus. It's from 10 AM to 3:30 PM with the last entry at 3 PM. Among other points listed on the info page, they'll be selling railway goods and there will be a conversation between a railway writer named Shie and the honorary curator of the Tobu Museum, possibly named Hanagami. http://www.tobu.co.jp/news/2013/1101/fanfesta.html

  5. I went to this event last Sunday. It is primarily an indoor event (good considering it falls within the rainy season in the Kanto area). It is interesting they ran the special trains right into the maintenance facility, and unloaded passengers using the inspection catwalks. Seibu ran a morning special train from Motomachi Chukagai,replacing the traditional special from Seibu Shinjuku Station. As I mentioned in another post, this event had the greatest number of vendors/representatives from other private railways as I have seen to date (admittedly, I have mainly been to JR events so far). I could only hang around for the first 2 hours, as I had to catch an afternoon flight back to Hokkaido from Narita AP. Otherwise I would have caught one of the afternoon shuttle trains back to Hanno, or the return special to Ikebukuro. Youtube contributor karibajct's coverage of this event:
