I‘m sure the 40s were not as impressive.

Not in that regard, no.  They were quieter and the engine control seemed more appropriate for the acceleration.  They were reasonably comfortable and they always got me home, so... 🙂

I went to my hometown by local train on Tokaido line in 2001.

Thank you for your comment. @Socimi

 

This train departed from Tokyo to Ito station.

After, it returned to Tokyo as Exp. "Odoriko".

I lived in western Japan and ultimately never rode a 185.  My preference would have been to take the Hamakaiji service.  Have you heard if any formations will be kept, turned into excursion trains, etc?  Periodically I see videos of them going to Nagano for scrapping.

I heard one unit is kept but be scrapped until 2022.

Wow, great photos!  I really love the classic look of the DD54 class locos.

It seems that your rail tour in 1976 was  extremely productive. Great photos again. I also love the DD54s. They looked so top heavy running on narrow 1067mm track. My next acquisition after my preorders come in will have to be an early to mid production DD54 in HO gauge and some blue and brown coaches.  And beautiful scenery around Hyogo prefecture.

Thank you for your comment! @Kamome

 

I'd took photos of trains between 1976 to 1980.

I forgive some picture when I took so I preliminary write the date.(but mainly in 1976)

 

I remember blue and brown coaches in plastic was released by KATO but DD54 as brass model by Musashino.

The price was so expensive and I also look forward to in HO plastic.

It is such a unique and orphan design in JNR locomotives. I wonder if it would have had more impact on the locomotives that came afterwards if the DD54 had not been a lemon.

It always made me think euro locos, going down that looks somehow.

It is reportedly inspired by the German ex-V160 diesel locomotive.

Ahh figured it was something like that. It does stick out in the box of locos. Locos are fun to easily look at designs like this in the loco box as a lot in a history very small space.

Actually, DD91, the prototype of DD54 was built to load Maybach's engine and DD54 was a motif of V160 in West Germany.

Because It was built tough so that I heard often destroyed rails of JNR.

I just confirmed DD54 was released in HO plastic by Zoukeimura

With a dining car in the middle of the formation.  Line-side scenery makes the food taste better 🙂

Yes, that's right!

Especially, the dining car of shinkansen "Grand Hikari" remains in my memory.

I hope a dining car come back to a regular service.

Out of interest, what sort of food was served on these types of services? Was their any particular dish that most people wanted or were there regional delicacies? 

 

I remember seeing footage of people running at certain stations to get regional “eki-ben” to eat on blue trains as some had no catering service. Something similar on the Usui pass with people buying Toge no Kamameshi.

I remember a kind of food which was served in dining car was mainly western food and Japanese style set meal.

Western food was like a beef stew, Salisbury steak( called as "Hamburg steak") or Spaghetti Bolognese(called as "Spaghetti Meat Sauce") etc...

Japanese style set meal included Steamed rice, Miso soup, Japanese style Pickles, Grilled Fish or Meat(in that case, mainly "Teriyaki") with some raw vegetable.

Some dinning car in shinkansen was operated by  high class hotel's restaurant like Imperial Hotel(Tokyo), Miyako Hotel(Kyoto) or Rihgaloyal Hotel(Osaka) etc.

 

"Eki-ben" was mainly for backpackers because dinning car is originally for 1st and 2nd class passengers.

It's interesting there are many kind of regional eki-ben.

Indeed. One could make special “eki-ben trips” to collect the most famous ones. I remember getting these fish roe pockets, I think from around Kanazawa. A bit strange for my taste, but the packaging was wonderful. Kanazawa probably had the best sashimi-don I ever had, with lots of various sea food, like mussels or urchins.
