List of JGR/JNR Coaches Series

Recommended Posts

Steve

Hi Folks,

 

Do you know any List or Database, where very Passenger Coaches Series, JGR/JNR hat in operation, is listed? I miss such a List and it's a bit confusing what the Japanese had for Transport of Passengers. Timeline 1920s to 1970s.

I couldn‘t find a list on wikipedia (usually there is a list for everything on wikipedia...), but maybe this helps?

Here is a link to the 'Template' (Wikipedia speak for collapsible list thingies) for JNR passenger coaches, all of them were used in the JNR era, but not necessarily built then. Nothing built post JR is there, and there aren't many that fall into that category anyway.

Sadly, there's no timeline as such, but it is split into the "old" and "new" types. (The first "new" type was the 20 series, built in 1958)

If you are interested in the disposition of loco-hauled passenger coaches arranged by year and rolling stock depots nationwide, there is a subscription service run by Japan Railfan Magazine, they have digitized some of their past publications, including a few of their handbooks detailing rolling stock assignments.  The ones covering loco-hauled stock "kyakushahaichihyou" (客車配置表) are from the late sixties to early seventies:

*please note Japan Railfan Magazine began publishing in 1961, previously the only railfan magazine of note was Railway Pictorial.

 

There are also used copies available on Yahoo auctions as well as some published by JRR.  For earlier eras (fifties to early sixties) probably old Railway Pictorial issues or supplements have the information.  Generally railfan info gets better and more in-depth from the mid-sixties on, as people finally had the wealth and leisure time to pursue hobbies like photographing or modeling trains.
