  1. JR East announced Tuesday, Dec. 7 that it will install their proprietary ATACS on the Yamanote Line and the Omiya-Higashi Kanagawa section of the Keihin Tohoku line in the period 2028-2031, in conjunction with ATO operation including a wider set of lines in the Tokyo region. ATACS is a moving block system that is equivalent to ETCS Level 3. ATACS is currently in operation on the Senseki Line, Saikyo Line, and Koumi Line. https://trafficnews.jp/post/113288 JR East press release: https://www.jreast.co.jp/press/2021/20211207_ho03.pdf

  4. My local line is starting to see some changes, namely the upcoming installation of platform doors and ATO operation. First of all, the old rolling stock was retired last month. Small rather handmade-like notice of the retirement event: Balises for the ATO system were installed several months ago. Recently the platform edges have been marked for the installation of the platform doors: Posters announcing the change in stopping points at stations and changes in the timetable. Headways will be shorter, but the time stopped at each station will be longer, thanks to ATO operation.

    Seoul Metro Line 2 collision

    I'm surprised there has been little chatter on the net about this accident (none in the rail-oriented forums I frequent). Perhaps the ferry disaster is overshadowing everything. Anyway, this article has the most info about the possible cause, though it is not 100% accurate, either because of translation issues, or reporter ignorance of railway technology and operation: *make that five seconds *lol http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/Article.aspx?aid=2988786 A better written article than the one above: http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/Article.aspx?aid=2988852 Hmm, maybe Seoul Metro officials would benefit with a visit to Tokyo Metro's Fukutoshin Line, where rolling stock is fitted with five different signaling systems: CS-ATC, ATO, ATC-P, Tobu ATS, and Seibu ATS- that work smoothly and safely.
