  1. Operation will commence on the Joban Line local service tracks between Toride-Ayase this Saturday, March 13. Trains will still have a driver and conductor, only the throttle manipulation will be computer controlled. Demo run on the 8th between Matsudo and Abiko:
  2. Last summer (in August 2016) I traveled on the Joban Line between Tokyo and Sendai. Due to the nuclear disaster the part around Namie is closed, between the stations Tatsuta and Odaka. Between these stations runs a very irregular bus service. I have never been to an irradiated zone before, and I must say the experience was quite otherworldly. At first, the area is quite ordinary, just like any rural Japanese community. Until you notice that all the houses and cars are abandoned and overgrown. Eventually, in the heart of the exclusion zone, earthquake and tsunami damage is clearly visible, but
  3. September 28 (Sat)- First use of the imperial train ("omeshi ressha") in the Reiwa era. The emperor went to an event in Ibaraki Prefecture. Routing was Tokyo Station to Katsuta. Video by Ayokoi. Lineside in Ibaraki. Between Takahama and Ishioka. Includes footage of backup train making an emergency stop.
  4. In Wednesday (14 December 2016), PT KAI Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ) as Commuter Line train operator did a trial run for their train. Ex-JR 203 (203-2F) series from Joban Line, Japan did a trial run from Depok - Manggarai - Bogor and back to Depok. Something new from this trainset is the train formation is 12 cars that previously operate with 8 cars in Indonesia. The formation is: 202.2 + 202.3 + 203.3 + 202.117 + 203.117 + 202.6 + 203.6 + 203.4 + 203.3 + 202.4 + 203.4 + 203.2 This is the video:
  5. This is from several months back, but an E233 set (2000 sub series Mato 10) used on Joban Line local service was sent to Nagano General Rolling Stock Center to be fitted with CBTC equipment. After a stay of almost three weeks*, it returned to its depot at Matsudo, pulled by an EF64 based out of the Nagaoka Rolling Stock Center. Locations are Hachioji and Kunitachi. *apparently fitting of CBTC equipment is quite involved/complicated, it required about 10 days per trainset for London Underground Northern Line stock to be fitted with like equipment.
  6. An internet survey conducted last month of 703 adults living in the Tokyo Metropolitan area yielded these results(selected reasons follow): Best 3 1. Yamanote Line (convenient, the core of the transport network) 2. Tokyu Toyoko Line (runs through nice neighborhoods, passengers are fashionable) 3. Tokyu Den-en Toshi Line (same as above) Worst 3 1. JR Saikyo Line (full of chikan) 2. JR Keihin Tohoku Line (dirty image) 3. JR Joban Line (full of drunks, delinquents from the boondocks
