I would've broken out the 'keitai' and started filming, but I was a little far and the sky was crying a river that day.

Major disrupt this morning on east part of Yamanote Line and central part of Keihin-Tohoku Line.

Yamanote, Keihin-Tohoku line services resume after pole collapse halts busy section of rail



East Japan Railway Co. suspended part of train services on the Yamanote and Keihin-Tohoku Lines for about 9½ hours Sunday after four unused cable poles collapsed between Kanda Station and Akihabara Station.

The suspension affected about 410,000 people, JR East said later in the day.

The rail operator said that it discovered that the poles were leaning Friday but decided to fix them Monday after judging that they were unlikely to immediately collapse.

All Yamanote Line services were suspended briefly but services between Ikebukuro Station and Tamachi Station on one of the two loop lines were restored by 10 a.m. Shortly before 4 p.m., all services on Yamanote Line and Keihin-Tohoku Line were resumed.

A Keihin-Tohoku train engineer discovered the collapsed poles around 6:10 a.m.

According to JR East, the two pairs of unused steel poles were found leaning or collapsing on the Yamanote Line’s elevated tracks some 250 meters away from Akihabara Station in the direction of Kanda Station.
The Japan Times

In short: Yamanote Line closed between Ikebukuro and Tamachi. Keihin-Tohoku between Omiya and Kamata.

Just going to quote what I said in the international section in case people want to discuss here:

Quote:
Ouch. That seems to be an oversight on the part of JR East there. They should be taken to task about leaving the repairs until Monday given they had noted the possibility of failure - even if they were unused poles. Seems to me this could have been averted if they had just acted then and there.

Also, if they were unused, why did they not get taken down before?

It's sort of a random question, but does anybody know why Odakyu decided to underground the recent quadrupling of the Odawara Line, when it was originally supposed to be a viaduct like the previous stretches? Also, any recent updates?

The local neighborhood is more built up, so it would have been more expensive. Also, the neighborhood put up stronger protests, and got Odakyu to agree to underground.

I'd also like to hear some news from Odakyu, if possible.
