I look forward to taking a trip down the Takayama Honsen on one of these in the future, I took a few rides on the Hida Wide View about 2 years ago, the first trip down to Gero was good until we got to Takayama and they added another 4 cars infront of our train, the diagphrams were not sealed properly and we gagged on diesel fumes for about 20 minutes, it was quite a nauseating feeling and it felt so good to alight at Gero and get fresh highlands air into our lungs.

I'm not surprised they're going to retire the KiHa 85's. They were constructed only a few years after JR Central was formed and are probably getting up there in years.
