  4. Two 4-car sets of Nankai's new 8300 series were delivered from Kinki Sharyo on the 29th, the first time in about 40 years the manufacturer has built anything for this railway. Every Nankai train I've ever been aware of was built by Tokyu/J-Trec. After leaving Kinki behind DE10 1192 via the connection at Tokuan, the formation was pulled to Suita Freight Terminal. From there, DD51 1191 took it down the Umeda freight bypass to the west side of the loop around Nishi-Kujo, on to Tennoji, and apparently east to Oji. I assume they continued south via the Wakayama Line. Maybe the Hanwa Line is a little too busy for this less-than-shinkansen speed move :). Interchange between JR West and Nankai is all the way down at Wakayama-shi, which can been seen in the second video below. http://railf.jp/news/2015/06/30/120000.html crossing the Kanzaki River Bridge on the Joto Freight Line, by hankyudensha at Wakayama-shi Station, by jnrkiiline. Cool lineup from 5'00", but we don't see the DD51 depart...
  5. This Thursday, Nov. 6, Kinki Sharyo announced it had received an order from Tokyo Metro for replacement stock for the Hibiya Line. The order is for a total of 294 cars, to be arranged in 42 trainsets. They will be delivered over a period of three years, from FY2016 to FY2019. Current Hibiya Line rolling stock is operated in 8 car consists, each car being 18m long with either three or five doors per side. The new rolling stock will be 20m long, have 4 doors/side, and operate in 7 car consists. http://response.jp/article/2014/11/07/236805.html *I'm glad Kinki Sharyo got the order, I like many of their designs, which will give (hopefully) a more Kansai aesthetic to Tokyo area rolling stock, which tends to be dominated by slightly cheapy feeling Tokyu Sharyo/J-Trec or Hitachi.
