bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionThe JR East railway museum in Omiya will be showing a pair of special exhibitions from 3/14 to 6/21. Titled "Two Starts", one will examine the Hokuriku Shinkansen, the other the Ueno Tokyo Line. The Hokuriku Shinkansen exhibition will feature 1/20 scale models of the E7/W7, details of the tunnels and bridges along the route, snowfall countermeasures, and past limited express and express trains that ran between Tokyo and the Hokuriku region. The Ueno Tokyo Line exhibition will focus on the building of the elevated portion of the route, including the building over the Tohoku Shinkansen, and the techniques involved given the limited time and space without disrupting existing services. Also past limited expresses that used this section, and Joban Line trains that once went as far as Yurakucho. Cab view videos will be featured. Normal museum entry fee of 1000 yen will allow access to these exhibits. http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2015/02/25/211/ http://www.railway-museum.jp/press/pdf/20150216_2015_hp.pdf
