  1. Hanshin's new 5700 series has begun daytime test runs. These are the company's first new trains in 20 years, and they follow the 5500 series in having 4.0km/h/s acceleration, see Bikkuri's thread on the topic here: http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/6124-hanshin-jet-cars-speedometer-shots/ . This set will enter service in summer, and subsequent formations will replace the 13 existing 5001 series trains. It probably is about time for a fleet refresh, but the 5000s still look great in their dark blue and creme livery. http://railf.jp/news/2015/06/26/200000.html http://railf.jp/news/2015/06/09/153000.html Kobe Shimbun video with interior and undercarriage views video by SANTENDOGA, available in 4K resolution if you've got the gear :)
  2. Meitetsu has a good number of these turnback runs, called orikaeshi unten, where a service, typically an all-stops, reverses at an intermediate station. This scene at Higashi-Okazaki is unusual as the train uses the up mainline to reverse and enter the down auxiliary track (track #1), as there is no pocket track at this location. Note how the driver hurries to the front of the train so as to get underway as soon as possible to clear the up line.
