Thanks k.k.!


In other news...

66 series on Sakaisuji line (Osaka Subway) are under renovation. Here the first renoved trains with a new bumper, LED displays, and new livery indicating the number of car (like in 30000 series for the Tanimachi line). Moreover, new details inside trains like amrest in the sides of seats.



Contrast between reformed and non reformed units.









Comparing with 30000 series (2009).

Tokyo Station platform roof to be replaced
Quote:


The entire roof of a JR Tokyo Station platform will be removed and replaced for first time since the station opened in 1914, according to East Japan Railway Co.

A JR East official said the company decided that two of the 14 cast iron pillars holding up the roof will be preserved as a “monument” in recognition that the roof is a historic piece of architecture that survived the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake and the Great Tokyo Air Raid in 1945 during World War II.

Other key moments in history that took place in the station were the assassination of Prime Minister Takashi Hara in 1921 and the attempted assassination of Osachi Hamaguchi in 1930.

The roof covers the platform of tracks No. 5 and No. 6, used by Yamanote Line trains and Keihin Tohoku Line trains bound for Ofuna Station. Although half of the roof was rebuilt after the war, a portion measuring around 12 meters wide and 50 meters long and associated cast iron pillars have been in constant use for a century.

No decision has been made on preserving the 12 other pillars.

Convenience stores even at stations
Quote:
It has been decided that all kiosks in Osaka-based West Japan Railway Co. (JR West) train stations will become 7-Eleven stores. The plan is for 500 stores inside stations, mainly in the Hokuriku, Kinki and Chugoku regions, to become branches of the convenience store.

The number of convenience stores in Japan has been on the rise, topping 50,000. Competition for customers is heating up among convenience stores.

So, convenience store chain operators have adopted a strategy of opening outlets at train stations, in cooperation with railroad companies. Because many people come to stations to get on trains, these shops naturally have access to many customers.

Seven-Eleven Japan Co. already has outlets at stations run by Tokyo-based Keikyu Corp.

FamilyMart Co. has opened stores at Osaka-based Kintetsu Corp. stations as well.
