Digest feature of an interesting cab ride aboard EF 210 163 on train 1155 from Tokyo Freight Terminal to Sagami Freight Station in Kanagawa Prefecture. It starts with 24 cars, dropping off 8 at Kawasaki, another 4 at Hazawa, and continuing on with the remaining 12 to Sagami Freight Station. Rare footage of freight only tunnels which allow freight trains to bypass the heavily trafficked passenger train routes in the Keihin corridor. A Jiji Tsushin production. Hat tip to Sr. Horn over at SSC for this.
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionBig box retailer/supermarket behemoth Aeon and JR Freight will be running a dedicated freight train from the latter half of July to the beginning of August, just before the Obon season when freight traffic reaches a high volume. Citing a lack of truck drivers restraining road haulage capacity, Aeon has opted for rail haulage of some of its products, mainly those of its private brand Top Value, which is manufactured by third party companies. The train will run during this period every Sunday, departing from either Tokyo Freight Terminal or Kudara Freight Terminal in Osaka around midnight,
