Btw the videos are great and my favourite layout was the operations based, with almost no scenery but proper traffic and signalling. The line looks very similar to the Seibu Ikebukuro line. Maybe someone who was there can confirm this.

 

Yes, modelled on the Seibu Ikebukuro line and its extention, the Seibu Chichibu line.

Thanks for the pictures Erick! Fantastic photos! Seems Tokyo station is a great place to take shinkansen photos since there are Tohoku East region and Sanyo West region trains both there! Glad you caught the East-I! Rare indeed!

I think every packed Asian city has them. They are omnipresent in Japan, especially around stations. Some have even evolved into elevated pathways with shops attached to them. A few good examples are Omiya station and Keiō/Odakyu Tama Center station.

 

Which probably explains the one in Japantown in San Francisco (traversing Webster St.)  I always thought it unique (it contains primarily if not exclusively restaurants.)

What do you guys exactly mean with that extended bridge thing?

I’ve been wanting to build something like this type of operations / signalling setup myself, so I did a bit of googling and found this blog:

http://rfc.at.webry.info

Looks like it was built by the Tokyo Metropolitan College of Technology Railway Fan Club members, and reproduces these five stations:

SI01 Ikebukuro

SI26 Hanno

SI31 Agano

SI33 Shomaru

SI36 Seibu Chichibu

Maybe I’m reading it wrong, but I’m not sure the layout is 100% accurate since Hanno seems to have five platforms in real life:

It would be great to find some details of the track plan and electronics, but no luck in my searching so far.

 

I’ve attached some screen grabs from the YouTube video for easy viewing.

Yup - as I said to myself when I saw the model, "railsquid old chap, they've left the dedicated Red Arrow platform off haven't they?!"
