  1. JR East will be opening a railway goods shop called General Store Railyard in the west concourse of Omiya Station. At the link below you can find a pdf illustrating some of the items available. Among other goodies, a few must-haves: JR East pajamas as used on the Hokutosei sleeper service parts pulled from retired rolling stock dining car beef curry Hokutosei spoon and fork set decals as used inside E233 series cars to indicate car designation/number, decals displaying depot and passenger capacity towels, key chains, stationery Kato E651 Swallow Akagi limited edition model This will open Saturday, March 25, 2017.

  2. A substantial zenmen tenbou of the Super Odoriko service, recorded from directly behind the driver on a 251 series EMU. Very good vantage point. I didn't know this run was so long. By uploader HKASAMA.
  3. 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
  4. This Tetsudou Fan news item mentions the 川越貨物線, the Kawagoe Freight Line. A search on this turns up nothing. Is this an error? I don't see any obviously separate tracks on aerial maps, either. Infrequently used connector/bypass lines are a major interest of mine, what's this all about? :) http://railf.jp/news/2015/02/28/170000.html
  5. The JR East railway museum in Omiya will be showing a pair of special exhibitions from 3/14 to 6/21. Titled "Two Starts", one will examine the Hokuriku Shinkansen, the other the Ueno Tokyo Line. The Hokuriku Shinkansen exhibition will feature 1/20 scale models of the E7/W7, details of the tunnels and bridges along the route, snowfall countermeasures, and past limited express and express trains that ran between Tokyo and the Hokuriku region. The Ueno Tokyo Line exhibition will focus on the building of the elevated portion of the route, including the building over the Tohoku Shinkansen, and the techniques involved given the limited time and space without disrupting existing services. Also past limited expresses that used this section, and Joban Line trains that once went as far as Yurakucho. Cab view videos will be featured. Normal museum entry fee of 1000 yen will allow access to these exhibits. http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2015/02/25/211/ http://www.railway-museum.jp/press/pdf/20150216_2015_hp.pdf
  6. 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. The "work" themed area will include E5 and 400 series shinkansen rolling stock, as well as a new E5 simulator with a dramatic, high resolution panorama-sized screen. http://railf.jp/news/2014/11/06/173000.html
  7. This C58 was on static display in a park in Morioka City until autumn of last year. It will pull the SL Ginga Tetsudou excursions once back in service. Refurbished at Omiya like C61 20, it was originally built by Kawasaki in 1940. In this video by tobu2181, you can see it running on the depot's test track.
