E233-8000 Series


First train (N1) of E233-8000 Series. Like other trains of this series and others, the front panel made with LEDs shows the destination and name of the service line.


In a yellow box the type of train (local service).


Single-arm pantographs with an special security system that I don't understand:

Quote:
パンタグラフ付近に安全帯フック掛けを設置
降雪時にパンタグラフに積もった雪を取り降ろす際の安全対策として導入されたもので、パンタグラフ部分の両側に設置されています。

The livery with the colors of the line (yellow, orange and brown) and the skyline of the Kawasaki city.


Interior image with customized tapestry.


Image of the cabin through the panorama window.

It's a device fitted to the pantographs that removes any built up snow (the snow that occasionally falls in the Kanto area is very wet and clingy).

The Hibiya Line of the Tokyo Metro subway system will be getting a new station in time for the 2020 Summer Games in the Japanese capital, Tokyo Metro and the Urban Renaissance Agency (UR) announced on Oct. 14.

The as-yet unnamed stop will be between the Hibiya Line's Kasumigaseki and Kamiyacho stations, by the new Toranomon Hills business and commercial complex and a planned bus terminal. Hibiya Park and the U.S. Embassy are also nearby.

The UR public development agency will be in charge of the overall subway station project, while Tokyo Metro will handle design and construction. The total cost is expected to reach tens of billions of yen, which will be covered by central government funding and support from local developers.

The next step is to see the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's long-term city planning finalized and draw up construction plans. UR and Tokyo Metro are expected to break ground for the new stop -- the first built on an existing line since the Ginza Line's Tameike-Sanno Station was finished in September 1997 -- next fiscal year or later.

The new bus terminal next door, meanwhile, is being planned by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government as the core of a high-speed bus system to get Olympic spectators to and from the middle of the city and venues on the coast. Tokyo is also planning underground pedestrian walkways to connect Toranomon Hills -- opened in June this year -- with the new metro station and Toranomon Station on the Ginza Line.

Yamanote Line E321-500 for Chuo-Sobu Line?

元E231系500番台トウ520編成、黄色帯化先頭車登場 「A520」編成に



現在東京総合車両センターでは元山手線E231系500番台トウ520編成の黄色への塗装変更が進んでいるが、このほど黄色となった先頭車もお目見えした。

塗り分けは山手線時代と同様で、編成番号は 「A520」編成となっている。

Nishi-Nippori Station. Alteration of the tracks for Keihin-Tohoku Line trains due a "personal injury incident" at Tokyo Station. Omiya-bound trains used the inner circle track for the Yamanote Line.

Apparently a grab shot from a passing Shonan Shinjuku Line train. It's an ex-Yamanote Line E231 500 series tou 520 trainset, that's been repainted in Sobu/Chuo Local Line colors, and re-designated as A520 trainset. The poster's first time to see the front car all in yellow, though this is not the whole trainset assembled yet.
