  1. A very fine front view video by HKASAMA, this is KIKUHA 32-502 and an unknown KIHA 185, possibly KIRO 185-26. RO would mean it has green class seating. There are two KIKUHA 32 cars, 501 and 502.

  5. Not sure how long its been since an official release, but while in Matsuyama, I got to practice my Japanese, or rather a Japanese station attendant got to practice his English. We were talking while I had a wait for a train to Takamatsu. He was telling me that the decent size yard and shops behind the station are to be torn down when JR Matsuyama-eki is torn down within the year. (I later saw a huge construction board in front of the station showing the new project, pix posted) From what I was told, they plan to tear down the station and build a new elevated viaduct station and eliminate a
