  1. YouTube member kona1317 posted an interesting video from an observation deck at the Yunosato Signal Station just north of the entrance to Yunosato Tunnel Number 1 (e.g., the north entrance to the Seikan Tunnel on the Hokkaido side). Note how train 3059 pulled by a JR Freight EH800 locomotive set stops on the northbound siding, lets the JR Hokkaido H5 train set pass by, then starts up again. The sound the freight train stopping and starting sounds almost exactly like an American freight train stopping and starting. At the end of the video, note train 3059 is now being pulled by a DF200 diesel-electric locomotive on the Hakodate Main Line.
  2. It was revealed by JR East on Dec. 2 that the new luxury suite train "Shikishima", scheduled to begin operation in the spring of 2017, will operate on one cruise plan through the Seikan Tunnel to Noboribetsu/Lake Toya in Hokkaido. The four day plan departs Ueno Station, goes to Nikko, then proceeds north on the Tohoku Main Line to Hokkaido. The return course takes the Sea of Japan side route, and transits Niigata Prefecture and the Joetsu Line to reach Ueno. The train will be capable of running under 25kV AC lines as well as 20kV AC and 1500V DC, as well as on non-electrified lines using its hybrid diesel setup. http://trafficnews.jp/post/46466/ official website: http://www.jreast.co.jp/shiki-shima/
