  1. Recent delivery of the kiha 261 trainset "Hamanasu" from KHI Kobe works to the JR Hokkaido Naebo Depot/Works. First scene is somewhere on the Hokuriku Main Line, rainy season haulage by Toyama-based EF510 through the rice fields. Next is a (delayed) arrival Saturday AM in the Sapporo area. First scene at Chitose, then the Toyohira River crossing, and at Naebo rolling stock works.
  2. I wasn't aware of this until yesterday, but since last year Kawasaki has been testing their efWING CFRP bogies on NY subway rolling stock. This is not noted in the Japanese wikipedia entry. More recent example: KHI website: https://www.khi.co.jp/mobility/rail/bogie/efwing.html
  3. It will be designated the 500 series. Eight 3 car sets will be built by KHI. Features include full active suspension on all cars and permanent magnet synchronous motors. The three car sets will be designed to couple/uncouple en route with other three car sets to expand/shrink consists depending on passenger demand and service patterns. Introduction scheduled for spring 2017. This is the first order for rolling stock by Tobu awarded to KHI since 1946. http://www.tobu.co.jp/file/pdf/4c10174fc83e8d1045e7adde5e16c37a/150422.pdf?date=20150421135208
  4. Singapore-based forumers are probably already well-acquainted with this story, but here is some information of recent developments: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/china-made-mrt-trains-sent-back-to-fix-defects

  7. Sanyo Dentetsu will introduce new rolling stock within the fiscal year, the first new units in 15 years. Designated the 6000 series, the aluminum-bodied rolling stock will consist of a total of 6 units, in 3 two-car formations. They will be capable of being used on both local services and incorporated in direct limited express rakes. The carriages will be 18.9m long, equipped with VVVF inverters, LED lighting, fully enclosed PMSM motors, and interestingly, a braking system that prevents flats on wheelsets. They will be manufactured by longtime supplier Kawasaki Heavy. http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2015/05/20/638/
  8. Been awhile since this proposed trainset has last been in the news. With the PM's U.S. visit, it looks like this model will be officially offered for the California project. Apparently tender bids by the various manufacturers will occur sometime this year. Kyodo News report via the Japan Times (yecch...): http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/04/25/business/japanese-consortium-to-propose-kawasaki-heavy-bullet-trains-for-high-speed-line-in-california/ ...efSET, something like a "super" E7 set?

    A visit to KHI's Yonkers Plant

    A surprisingly good photo essay of a visit to Kawasaki Rail's facility at Yonkers, New York. Especially valued are views of the KW155 bogies, which appear to be monolink with bolster air cushion suspension type. http://www.businessinsider.com/subway-car-factory-2014-9?op=1
