  1. On the morning of May 23 (JST), an inbound Tokaido line train was incorrectly routed onto the Tokaido Freight Line at a signal southwest of Ofuna. Apparently the decision was made not to reverse but to continue on. As a result, four stations were missed before the train arrived at Musashi-Kosugi. If I'm reading maps correctly, it was the Tokaido Freight Line for most of the distance, but also the southeastern freight-only portion of the Musashino Line from around Tsurumi to Musashi-Kosugi. JR East yards will be thoroughly weeded for months to come. I imagine that the driver would have been surprised at the signal routing the train onto the freight line. I also imagine the railroads having a procedure for everything. Was it to follow the routing, even if it was not what he expected? A handy explanatory video was made by Ayokoi. If you enable Japanese subtitles in the video, you can then set it to autotranslate to the language of your choice (I did this on the desktop site, not in an app).
  2. 150 years of railways anniversary special event. 185 series traversing considerable freight line trackage in southern Kanto (Kanagawa Prefecture). Reservation only, groups of two or more. Would love to take this tour, but probably will sell out in seconds on 4/27. JR East Press release: https://www.jreast.co.jp/press/2022/yokohama/20220421_y1.pdf
