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.

185 Series operating an all-stops service!? That's one luxury local train!

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.

I visited Bantan line to take photos of DD54 in 1976.

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.
