In conjuction with 130th anniversary celebrations, a 10000 series and 7000 series trainset were repainted in the old Nankai colors last seen more than 20 years ago. This replicates the ltd. express "Southern" as it looked then. The 7000 series trains will be retired in September, and this trainset will wear these colors until then. *thanks to Sr. Horn over at SSC for this http://osaka.thepage.jp/detail/20150614-00000001-wordleafv?utm_expid=90592221-36.ah3mtalbQhWzWqvW1vz4kw.0&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Furl%3Fsa%3Dt%26rct%3Dj%26q%3D%26esrc%3Ds%26source%3Dnewssearch%26cd%3D1%26ved%3D0CB0QqQIoADAA%26url%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fosaka.thepage.jp%252Fdetail%252F20150614-00000001-wordleafv%26ei%3Dy7uDVYyvBdjt8AWD27iYBQ%26usg%3DAFQjCNEkNVxwL9swL_uKOUyNjiZv01MMrQ%26bvm%3Dbv.96042044%2Cd.dGc
Last month Kintetsu repainted a 5200 series in the old limited express (pre-Vista Car) colors of yellow and dark blue used on the 2250 series, which was the first post-war Kintetsu limited express design (1953). This is a tie-in with the eastern Nara Pref/western Mie Prefecture tourism destination campaign. passing through Iga-Kambe Station: passing through Mihata Sta. in Nabari City: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5tr8uK2S6E vintage film, brief view of the 2250 series at 0:19:
