Meitetsu turnback operation at Higashi-Okazaki

Meitetsu has a good number of these turnback runs, called orikaeshi unten, where a service, typically an all-stops, reverses at an intermediate station.  This scene at Higashi-Okazaki is unusual as the train uses the up mainline to reverse and enter the down auxiliary track (track #1), as there is no pocket track at this location.  Note how the driver hurries to the front of the train so as to get underway as soon as possible to clear the up line.
