Haha interesting indeed ~ So is the Chuo line going to be extended with 2 bi-level green cars? Are all the current platforms on the Chuo line able to support 12 cars? Not so sure about smaller stations esp like Yotsuya  or Nakano..

 

Have you tried reading back through the thread?

 

The linked video is from Jan 2020, so somewhat out-of-date; if you check e.g. Kunitachi at this point in the video:

you can just about see the girders for the platform extensions. A fair amount of work has been carried out since on many stations (see e.g. my post here).

haha yeah i missed the first page! it also looked like some works had already started to length the platforms... 

 

The service on the Chuo line has such an attraction to me that i wanna start memorising them haha ~ I could work my way through my mind till Mitaka only... The mushashi confuses me with the higashi and the sakai ~ I always wanted to ride the Chuo line to Kawaguchi-ko, and will be sure to mark it off my bucket list on my next trip!

- Musashi-Sakai

- Higashi-Koganei

- Musashi-Koganei

 

The latter two not to be confused with Hana-Koganei on the Seibu Shinjuku line.

And here's the official train set for the Chuo line 12-car set, and nope, it's not a E233 ~

The Chuo line from Tokyo-Takao is one of the two coolest urban lines in Japan (in my opinion) - the other being the urban stretch of the Special Rapid Service (Maibara to Himeji I guess). 

 

There is literally nothing better than high frequency double-tracked urban rail with a Japanese flavour!
