Tetsudou Journal has a news item about JR East's refurbed E653s, renumber as 1100 subseries, to be used on the Shirayuki service that will run between Niigata and Arai on the Shin'etsu Main Line.  It will begin in March 2015 with the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen.  There will be four 4-car formations. Looks good.

Looks like a mini-E2 Shinkansen to me in these colours.

The nostrils... I mean, marker lights, look great!

The paint scheme is beautiful. Definitely on the todo list and will get the model ASAP.

This looks good, and really looks like a mini E2. Will be hoping to get this model!  :)
