Well, here it is. Looks just like the second iteration of the 521 series operated in the Hokuriku region, but with different color accents. The red represents Itsukushima Shrine's gate, as well as the fall foliage of maple trees, and, if I understand this correctly, it's the color of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp baseball team. First I thought this meant the actual fish, but apparently not. This will run on DC only. They expect to have 43 cars in service this year, and a total of 276 in service by 2018, in 64 3-car formations and 42 2-car formations. They'll be used on the Sanyo, Kure, and Kabe lines. Hmmm, I wonder how the new Osaka Loop Line rolling stock is coming along... I think this design is quite nice, although those things meant to stop people falling between the cars look a little funny on the ends. http://railf.jp/news/2014/06/20/130000.html
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosThere are other such videos of 1435mm rolling stock being transported on temporary 1067mm trucks (Keisei Skyliner AE and some subway rolling stock comes to mind), but it's pretty rare, and it's very interesting to see this train behind a DE10 and EF65. In the description, ayokoi (uploader of the first video) says that up to now, transport had been by sea to Sendai. This is set Z9 being transported from Kawasaki's Hyogo Works to JR East's Akita Shinkansen Depot.
