  1. I was at Tokorozawa Station riding my favorite Shinjuku Line trains this past weekend, and noticed this, but didn't know until I came across this video today that songs from Studio Ghbili's My Neighbor Totoro had become the official departure melody for the station from Nov. 3.

  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.

  7. This came up in Tetsudou Fan's newsfeed twice in the last few days: http://railf.jp/news/2014/03/15/194500.html http://railf.jp/news/2014/03/13/150000.html The functions served by this Nippon Paper Industries warehouse will be moved to Soka City in Saitama, and there are no other customers on the line. Official decommissioning will be July 1st, but it saw its last revenue train on March 14th around 2:45 PM.
