miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosIt seems like there are not so many types of trains that really allow for good zenmen tenbou video. A few exceptions are those on express services between Tokyo and the greater Izu peninsula area, such as the JR East 251 and various Odakyu limited express types. Our videographer, HKASAMA, rides the newest of the latter, the 70000 series, for the video below. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odakyu_70000_series_GSE https://www.youtube.com/user/HKASAMA/videos

A very interesting documentary on Shinjuku Station. It focuses on the station staff, starts with an automatic alarm bed, and discusses crowd control, suicides,terrorists, earthquakes, typhoons, the obsession with punctuality and how it caused the 2005 train wreck, drunks, the five rushes each day including the last train of the day. And a stand that serves a bowl of noodles every five seconds. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x12ww8o_worlds-busiest-train-station-shinjuku-full_travel?start=3
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionSubways are not my area of interest, but I saw this and thought it was simply a re-styled JR East E233-2000, which were built for through-service on the Metro Chiyoda Line from the Joban Line. Both of these are products of Tokyu/J-Trec, but I haven't read anything that confirms that the designs are related. The article says says it's a 10-300 type with minor changes. Really?
