  1. One of the faster turnarounds in Japan, I reckon. *additionally notice the peculiar to Hankyu practice of announcing the train arrival track using "~go sen" rather than the common "~ban sen". Apparently this is because the "ban sen" term is used only for rolling stock depot/coach yard tracks on this railway.
  2. First time in 24 years that new commuter rolling stock will be introduced. 10 sets of 4 car formations, for a total of 40 carriages. Initial assignments are Kyoto, Nara, Tenri, Kashihara Lines. Seating will be the rotatable longitudinal/transverse type (called the l/c system). Kintetsu press release: https://www.kintetsu.co.jp/all_news/news_info/sinngatasyaryou.pdf Norimono news with Gami:
  3. Took the Kintetsu Kyoto Line today. Highlight of this route is going across the Yodogawa Bridge, which actually crosses the Uji River despite its name. One of my favorite bridges, it is a Pennsylvania Petit truss type, and is the longest single span truss bridge in Japan. https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/journalhs1990/12/0/12_0_197/_article
