Produced 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.

The N700S will feature a a new "Dual Supreme Wing" nose, which will lessen air resistance and reduce noise upon entering tunnels. The first prototype 16-car N700S train is expected in March 2018.

From the The Mainichi: NAGOYA (Kyodo) -- In a move to better compete with a rival train operator's famous "seven-minute miracle" for cleaning a bullet train between its arrival and departure, Central Japan Railway Co. will shave off two minutes from its own shinkansen cleaning work, beginning next spring. https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20190605/p2g/00m/0bu/060000c?fbclid=IwAR0eP7xFRwO0WbrFoMIn3n3C0d8KoNGuZgb7TnsaXZLVgjFKEjGf1dih_wg
