227 Series Red Wing debut!

The 227 series is a DC electric multiple unit train operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West) for use on suburban services in the Hiroshima area. The train debuted in service on 14 March 2015.

The 227 series trains revenue in service initially on the Sanyo Main Line between Shiraichi and Iwakuni, replacing ageing JNR-era 115 series EMUs.

The trains will also displace 115 series EMUs on the Kure Line and Kabe Line, with the entire fleet of 276 vehicles (106 sets) scheduled to be delivered by the end of fiscal 2018.

Following, the photos of the first day in service:

Those look like really nice trains. Glad to see that they're renewing rolling stock on the subway too.

頑張ろ東北!

So glad to see this. There may only be a 11 trains going up and down the track on that line, but to be able to see train on the track means progress to those people. it means some sense of normalcy to hear the crossing bells go off in those areas again.

NICE!!!
It's going to look way better than the original rendering that was posted of this thing.

Though I spot one big difference between this and the previous model, something that will might make it difficult during the phasing over between the E231 and the E235. The first and last sets of doors have been moved, which makes them not line up with the current platform doors (it will be tight at least). It's due to that they seems to have enlarged the drivers compartment.

Compare these two images:

The drivers door and first door have been moved backwards, there is a new window on the side behind the windscreen, and the first window in the passenger compartment is smaller.

I can't say I'm a big fan of how the E235 looks, especially with the Olympics coming up. I would have much preferred solid colors and stripes for the livery instead of that pixel-like motif. Also, the flat-topped front makes it look like the face of an old digital watch was slapped on, and doesn't flow too well with the rest of the train.
