  1. Last month our friend Ayokoi recorded the test run of rolling stock from Sotetsu and Toei on the soon to be opened (this March) Tokyu Shin-Yokohama Line, at Hiyoshi station, where the line begins its underground run. There has been a lot of news about this new line, too much to unpack now, but a posting sometime in the near future will cover run through patterns, schedules, etc.
  2. First run was on May 14. Selected scenes @ Takashimadaira, Shiba Koen, Shin Maruko, and Hiyoshi: *good traction motor sound when accelerating (interior)
  3. Toei has announced the 5500 series for the Asakusa Line. The exterior design 'tells you it is fast' and has a livery using colours inspired by Kabuki theatre. The interior 'evokes the image of traditional Japanese washi paper' and features patterns of the Edo Kiriko glass craft. The train features a wheelchair space, larger open spaces around the doors and more hand handles. Seats will also be wider than those of the current trains. The maximum speed of the Toei 5500 series is 120 km/h, opposed to the 110 km/h of the current 5300 series rolling stock from 1991. The first new unit will be delivered in Spring 2018, after 7 other units will be delivered in the same year. The other units replacing the remaining 5300 series will be delivered subsequently, to make it in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Source: https://trafficnews.jp/post/61002/
  4. http://pinktentacle.com/2010/01/secrets-of-the-tokyo-underground/ Intresting (if true) article about mysteries of underground tokyo, including theories that the Yurachuko line was built for military use, and the Toei Oedo line's tunnels already existed well before they were converted into a subway line.
  5. Here are three videos I found on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's own YouTube channel. The first one is about the Mr. Aizawa who's in charge in the CTC office: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7vGx7edwu4 The next one is about Mr. Yamada, a Mitsubishi employee who designs the cars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D972J7etmbk And in this one, Mr. Takaki who inspects the cars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSaWCOOLR0k Lots of other interesting stuff on this channel
  6. I found this video of a direct limited express from Haneda to Narita through the Toei Asakusa line. It's from 2014 august, so realtively new. I wonder when did this service start. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXpCYgE3myE
  7. Subways 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?
