  1. Keio Dentetsu has released exterior and interior images of the new rolling stock it will use on reserved seat service to be introduced in the future. The order will be for 5 sets of 10 cars, to be built by J-TREC. Designated the 5000 series, they will begin operations in spring 2018. The seating will be of the rotatable type to match peak/off-peak conditions and reserved seat service. http://www.keio.co.jp/news/update/news_release/news_release2015/nr160316_zasekishiteiressha.pdf earlier thread: http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/10046-keio-considering-for-fee-services/?hl=%2Bk
  2. Keisei Skyliner. Emphasizing the straightness and speed of the route, no doubt contrasting with JR East’s more circuitous and slow service, at least to Tokyo. Keio Railway Liner service. A long feature CM emphasizing the comfort the service provides for tired workers going home. Finally, a CM from Odakyu advertising their quad tracking becoming fully operational this month with the spring timetable revision.
  3. Interesting speculative article about what Odakyu may see as its primary competitors. Kanto is seen as having less heated competition between railways than Kansai (save maybe Keikyu/Keisei vs. JR East), but this highlights a possible battleground for passenger traffic. As a result of its four track mainline project, Odakyu is targeting a 4.3% increase in passenger traffic by 2020. In daily terms, this comes to an increase of about 80,000 to 90,000 passengers from the current number. The first rival is Keio Dentetsu, for the Nagayama/Tama Center to Shinjuku traffic. Keio has the adva
  4. Last month the MLIT released a list of 58 railway road crossings which were top candidates for improvement (or elimination via grade separation). Keio Railway led the list with 25 railway crossings that posed safety risks and/or congestion choke points. Second on the list was JR Kyushu, with 6 locations. Third was JR Tokai, with 5 locations. The remaining railways had three or less candidate locations. It must be noted that the Keio Railway crossings in question will be eliminated with the completion of the (currently under construction) elevation of the Keio Main Line between Sasazuka and
  5. This was mentioned in a thread on Ompuchaneru. Keio's mid-term business plan, released on May 8, mentions their study of for-fee services as a new revenue source. Unfortunately there are no concrete details. This is their 3-year plan covering this year to 2017. In 2020 JR East will have green cars on the Chuo Line. The Chuo and Keio's main line are roughly parallel, but fairly far apart for most of the distance. I'm not familiar with competition or "cross ridership" between these two lines. Is this a response to JR East? http://rail-uploader.khz-net.com/index.php?&id=44689 h
  6. Uploader of these is, I assume, the Sagamihara municipal government. This is their 'town info' kind of thing from April 15, 1990. Coverage of the then-new Hashimoto Station starts at 2:33. Waiting rooms were non-smoking from the beginning, seems quite forward-thinking to me. In another episode of this, from November 1984, locations along the then-JNR, then-unelectrified Sagami Line are featured. At the time, the line had KIHA 35s, tablet safeworking, and apparently some manual and spring switches.
  7. Keio, Tokyu, Seibu and Tokyo Metro now number there stations and I have issued revised route maps. Tokyu has a PDF map showing station numbers.There is an interactive version of this map on the Japanese language Tokyu web site that links through to station information pages. This version of the map is not on the English language Tokyu web page and I just happened to stumble upon it. The Tokyu map shows the name and color of Tokyo Metro through routings, something that is rare. PDF version http://www.tokyu.co.jp/railway/menu/rosen-web080602.pdf Interactive version http://www.toky
  8. Tobu Daishi LIne This is a 1.0 km line and is a remnant of the proposed Tobu Nishi-Ita Line which was never completed and was intented to connect the two Tobu main lines, the Tobu Tojo and the Tobu Isesaki. Length 1 km Stations 2 2 car trains http://youtu.be/wjZEw4LXZzY Tobu Ogose Line This is a 10.9 km mostly single track branch line which had through service to Ikebukuro until the 1970s and connects the Tobu Tojo line with JR East Hachiko line.
