Woah, so cool!  I didn't realize any of the 52 series were still running, is this unit still in operation?

All withdrawn around 2010, I think.

 

That nice engine shed is of course no longer there either.

That's the one on the sleeve of Tomix 92966.

This is a very cool museum, I really enjoyed my visit in the before times. Especially the bathhouse with its beautiful mural.

A while back I was minding my own business on the Seibu Shinjuku line between Takadanobaba and Seibu Shinjuku when I was bemused to see this rather worn Boso-liveried 209 series trundle past on the Yamanote freight line.

No idea where it was going, probably somewhere it won't be coming back from.

 

One of the Chuo Line 209-1000 sets at Tachikawa the other week:

Oh yes, I imagine they'll be sticking around for a couple of years more until all the E233s are refurbished.

Could have been a driver training run? In the past, a Tozai Line E231-800 Series set was also spotted on the Yamanote Freight Line, being used for the same purpose.
