Keio Hashimoto in 1990, JNR Sagami Line in 1984


Recommended Posts

Uploader of these is, I assume, the Sagamihara municipal government.  This is their 'town info' kind of thing from April 15, 1990.  Coverage of the then-new Hashimoto Station starts at 2:33.  Waiting rooms were non-smoking from the beginning, seems quite forward-thinking to me.



In another episode of this, from November 1984, locations along the then-JNR, then-unelectrified Sagami Line are featured.  At the time, the line had KIHA 35s, tablet safeworking, and apparently some manual and spring switches.

The second video was lovely, such an amazing calm atmosphere. I just love that Japanese countryside diesel lines. The middle school students interviewing the station master was cute too!

Nice to see something old from my soon-to-be permanent residence, though it's all about the Chūō-ku, not the Minami-ku where I now live. The atmosphere of the Sakura festival remains pretty much the same, though this year was pretty much ruined by rain.
