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 visited "Aoidake" in Miyazaki Prefecture in 1976.

JR-E Series 185 EMU at Atami station

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.
