NHK World running a show called Train Cruise
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosI just noticed that NHK World has a show (new to me) called Train Cruise. Link here: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/special/train_cruise.html . This channel is broadcast all over the world by different networks, it might be available in your region. If it's not, NHK also has an Android app that I think will let you tune in from any internet-connected device: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.nhkworldtv.android
TV Aichi special on JR Tokai's Nagoya Shops
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosProduced by TV Aichi, this is a tour of JR Tokai's Nagoya repair facility, just a few kilometers southwest of Nagoya Station itself. Video 1 starts with a front view video of the out-of-service run from just north of Nagoya Station, through Nagoya Depot, and on to the shop gate. Other interesting scenes in this video include inspection of a car interior, how they mark problems that they find, and a few shots of Aonami and Aichi Loop Railway rolling stock which JR Tokai works on under contract. In video 2, paint shops and wheel/axle/truck work. Video 3, very interesting. In particular, around 5:15 a mock driver's stand used for testing DMUs, in this case a KIHA 85. Not only do I want to hook this up to Densha de GO, notice the blur over some kind of read outs or controls. Later, around 9:00, a nighttime run on their conventional line Dr. Yellow. Again, starting around 12:10, lots of blurred out displays. Hmm. Although I'm curious about what they're obscuring, I'm more interested in who they're hiding it from. Who cares? It really baffles me in the case of the driver's stand. With all due respect it doesn't look like cutting edge hardware. Although still it would be absolutely sick to connect it to Densha de GO.

NHK Documentary- Tokyo Reborn: Shibuya Station redevelopment
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosRecent broadcast on NHK general about the redevelopment of the Shibuya Station area, with a focus on the opening of the Saikyo Line platform adjacent to the Yamanote Line platform, and the movement of tracks as well as the railway bridge crossing the old Oyama Road leading to Dougenzaka and the Shibuya Scramble intersection. 1000 construction workers and specialists along with 100 vehicles were given 52 hours to do the task, while observing covid-19 countermeasures. Everything had to be finished at the end of 52 hours and full restoration of Saikyo Line services. Everything was timed to the minute, with each person tasked with specific duties. There was even a mock bridge set up off site to rehearse the move and set procedures. Other parts of the documentary explain the redevelopment of the station area to improve passenger and pedestrian circulation and safety in the event of natural disasters, in coordination with four different railway companies.
