In the trend of refreshing liveries for the new age of railways, I present to you the new livery of Shin-Keisei. Stepping off from the late 80s cream, brown and bordeaux, Shin-Keisei has gone all balls to the wall and incorporated white and screaming pink. It's pretty close to magenta, but they themselves call it 'gentle pink'. I'm not so sure what's so gentle about this colour coming from an artist's perspective, but hey, it surely is refreshing. Anyway, here is a video of 8816F on a test run on the main line in the new livery: 8918F slow running in the Kunugiyama depot: Now, I'm not sure if Shin-Keisei will now go up or down my favourite list... A completely pink arsenal of rolling stock might be a bit too much for me. It certainly won't be my first Shin-Keisei model I will buy, that's for sure.

Someone caught an E653 with a new paint job at Koriyama Depot. Looks good: http://ameblo.jp/sen-kori-shin/entry-11539947539.html I'd like to see the E651s get some fresh paint, but I wonder if those aren't too old and will just be kept for real shortages until they're scrapped altogether.
