MLIT list of railway crossings that "need to be improved"
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionLast 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 Sengawa (7.2km). http://toyokeizai.net/articles/-/118244 Actual list of those crossings, from the MLIT: http://www.mlit.go.jp/common/001126608.pdf
Seibu Shinjuku Line grade crossing scenes
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosRailsquid mentioned in the Todoroki thread about the Seibu Shinjuku Line partial undergrounding.

Video taken earlier this month. *get your pics while you can...
Terangeree posted a topic in Layout BuildingSomeone else's idea gave me an idea to emulate it, as the small Tomytec station I bought a couple of years ago in Hiroshima was going unused and apparently unloved. My effort isn't as flash as the original, but I have added more buildings beside the station, used slightly different paving and walls and added advertising signs (mostly election posters). The scratchbuilt house has a rudimentary interior, with the floor plans taken from Kyoto real estate listings online. A second, much smaller house (smaller, in fact, than my own home's living room), is yet to be scratchbuilt with a visible interior.
