  1. YT got me with a recommendation once again. Here's a high quality front-view video of a run from Hanoi to Hai Phong. Even without a reference point, the gauge seems narrow, not even 1067mm. Turns out Vietnam has 2,169km/1,348mi of meter gauge. The video seems to show some hunting oscillation, unless it's just how the camera was mounted or something. Also, this guy loves to blow the horn. As best as I can tell, he sounds it anywhere someone might emerge from the line side vegetation, although not at properly guarded crossings. Video by Mars Hartdegen.
  2. A substantial zenmen tenbou of the Super Odoriko service, recorded from directly behind the driver on a 251 series EMU. Very good vantage point. I didn't know this run was so long. By uploader HKASAMA.
  3. I wasn't aware of this railway until a few months ago. Just fantastic footage of the prewar New York, Westchester and Boston Interurban. Look at the remarkable infrastructure, reminiscent of heavy railroads (and current Japanese practice) rather than the more prevalent dirt ballast toonerville operations back then. We are thankful that the individual who filmed this way back in 1937 had the foresight to record this operation for posterity.
  4. It's rare to get such a good view of this line. In this case it's possible due to the modified 485 series NO.DO.KA joyful train used for this "Sakata Kandara Festival" service. The train is classified as a rapid, so there's no express surcharge, although all seats are reserved. The 3-car formation has 96 seats. I've been trying to fill in some background on this; the cities of Sakata and Tsuruoka, both in Yamagata Prefecture, have this festival (28th and 27th times, respectively) for kandara, which I believe is cod caught in cold water. A soup is made with it, which does not appear to b
  5. Well I hear crickets, so I'm going to try to make some noise today . First up, a video by dbz586601. He's one of the best uploaders I've found for coverage of JR Central and Tokai-area private railways, and he's been quite prolific over the past week or so with dozens of uploads of run-bys as well as a few zenmen tenbou videos. Here we have JR Central's Nakasendo Train, a new special service apparently classified as a kyuko (non-limited express, with a lower surcharge) on the Chuo West Line run with the former Asagiri 371 Series rolling stock. This two-part video is a ride departing Narai
  6. I got some positive feedback in the chatroom about my posting of a cab view video of JR West's Yuttari Yakumo service (http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/5821-jr-west-hakubi-line-yuttari-yakumo-full-ride-okayama-to-izumo-shi/) on the Hakubi Line, particularly about how parts of it are single tracked. Well, from a posting by loefet on SSC, I found this excellent recording of JR East's Resort Yamadori train on the Agatsuma Line running from Takasaki to Manza-Kazawaguchi and I thought some people may enjoy it as well, it seems almost like a Kanto-area version of the Hakubi Line. JR East roll
  7. Here's another great upload by HINTEL1824TRAIN. This is a zenmen tenbou video of a ride on Semboku 7000 series rolling stock from Nankai Namba, just slightly south-east from JR West's JR Namba (formerly Minatomachi Station), to Izumi-Chūō. Nankai Namba is elevated, while the ground-level Minatomachi was undergrounded when rebuilt as JR Namba. This service operates as a rapid until Mozu where the change to Semboku's line happens, and then stops at all stations to the end of the line. The English Wikipedia page on Semboku has some interesting information; this line was meant to be planne
