  1. Equipment malfunction May 13 on the Metro Chiyoda Line led to a rolling stock substitution, with a 16000 series making a midday run to Hon Atsugi. After terminating there, it ran out of service to Isehara, where it turned back via a crossover, returning to Hon Atsugi for the next up service. This is apparently the first time Metro stock has done this in daylight hours, typically these are only seen on this stretch of line in the nighttime.
  2. One of my favorite railway scenes is the mid route turnback operation, typically done by a local train that doesn't traverse the whole route, but rather only serves the most heavily patronized portion. On the the heavily trafficked, heavily built up routes, typically a pair of pocket tracks is provided, and thus is not as interesting. What is interesting is when a portion of the down mainline is used for the turnback, with a bit of wrong way running before the crossover is traversed.

  3. Meitetsu has a good number of these turnback runs, called orikaeshi unten, where a service, typically an all-stops, reverses at an intermediate station.

Note how the driver hurries to the front of the train so as to get underway as soon as possible to clear the up line.
