  1. The long awaited Romance Car museum will open next month, April 19. Located in Ebina. Admission for adults will be 900 yen. At the moment, by reservation only.

  2. While gathering more info for my Japanese vacation that will happen someday, I happened upon this Wikipedia article. This is another new museum within JR West's operating area, apparently to be operated by them and to open around the same time as the new Umekoji museum. Some of the rolling stock is from the Osaka Modern Transportation Museum. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsuyama_Railroad_Educational_Museum https://www.westjr.co.jp/press/article/2015/10/page_7843.html

  4. Last week I visited the Tobu Railway museum in Higashi Mukojima. It was probably the fourth or fifth time for me. What keeps me coming back? It's probably the best private railway museum in the nation, given its size. One of the highlights is Tobu's first electric railcar, the deha 1 type. Unlike many other museums displaying rolling stock of this vintage, you can tour the interior and sit down on the seats.
  5. Apologies if this has been posted before, but I noticed that Google Street View (or more accurately, interior view) lets you roam around inside JR East's museum in Omiya, Saitama. Notice that in the lower right of your browser you can choose between three floors and the roof. Useful for those of us who can't seem to get that Japanese vacation organized :) :( https://www.google.com/maps/@35.9205395,139.6182968,3a,75y,182.93h,85.24t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1stcl8JMA9XN9JNmg0VxQw8A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1
  6. A simulator for an e5 shinkansen train is on display for visitor use at the California State Railroad Museum. It was provided by JR East, as part of a special exhibition on hsr. https://www.instagram.com/p/-SlpBDxoYc/ http://www.csrmf.org/component/content/article/55-events-exhibits-train-rides/477-fast-tracks-the-world-of-high-speed-rail
  7. Have we decided on whether we're writing KUHANE or KuHaNe? Anywho, KuHaNe 581-53, which is now all that's left of JR West 583 series formation B6, had been stored at Suita since its last Kitaguni run, a seasonal service sometime around new year 2013. It's now at Umekoji, to be displayed at the Kyoto Railway Museum that's set to open in a little over a year. It has been restored to its JNR-era livery, and as you can see in the link, JNR emblems have been put in place below the cab windows, as they would have been. http://railf.jp/news/2015/02/15/193000.html on a related note, it
  8. Here are two good videos of an open day sort of event at Umekoji. Ayokoi's video features a still image of an informational panel with some English before showing the engine itself. Karibajct's video has some scenes inside the roundhouse, filmed from on top of something about as tall as a locomotive or tender, it's an interesting view of the interior. by ayokoi by karibajct
  9. In 2017, JR East will update and expand its Railway Museum near Omiya Station. It will be the museum's 10th anniversary, and 30th anniversary of the establishment of the company itself. Built south of the existing structure, the addition will raise the museum's total display space to 14,800 square meters, about 1.5 times its present size. There will be various themes including work, history, the future, and travel in the context of railways, in addition to the main hall's themes of rolling stock and science, presenting a variety of view points on the history of railways and people. Th
  10. As discussed here http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/7717-osaka-modern-transportation-museum-to-close-april-6-2014 , the Osaka Modern Transportation Museum will close April 6, 2014, and its contents (some amount of it, anyway) will move to JR West's new museum at Umekoji, which is to open in 2016. The video below is by YT uploader KENKENKAICHO, who has quite a lot of Kansai private railway material, particularly Kintetsu. In this video, it appears that the museum is having a sort of special exhibit, "Shuzohin Collection: Bakuryoten." I don't have a good translation of that, particul
