I am curious, though; is there really a high demand for a new station here? It seems to be a fairly low density, un-remarkable area?


Also there are bridge pylons being built here as well in order to allow trains to pass over future roads and walkways as well. There's a lot of demand from either side of the new site since there's a 2.5 km gap between stations here. They've built many new office buildings on the east side of the alignment where factories once stood but the only way to get to them is to walk from either Shinagawa or Tamachi stations.

All Osaka Loop Line 103 Series trains are officially decommissioned

Today marked the last run of the orange 103 series trains that have been a standard on the line for 48 years.

They've all been replaced by 323 Series trains that are the standard 3 door configuration on JR West's network, which means platform doors will likely be constructed soon.

お疲れ様でした、さよなら103系車両。

The Osaka Loop Line still runs the 4-door 201 series, the first to be equipped with regenerative braking.

On my first visit to Tokyo, all the JR local lines were running the 103 series, except for a few 101s still in service. You could look at rail maps of Tokyo, and they were color-coded according to the train colors. I really miss those all-over color schemes. The only thing I don't miss is the almost total lack of English language signs at stations. Also back then, the only Shinkansen trains were 0 series.

Forgot about the 201 trains... But their days are numbered too. Kinki Sharyo is making enough 323 sets to replace them too.

It will be interesting to see what happens with the Loop Line sections between Tennōji and Ōsaka stations on the west side since they host Yamatoji, Kansai and a few Hanwa line through routes with their 4 door sets.

The 103 series in Osaka were different from the 103 series in Tokyo. The Osaka cars had windows at the ends of the cars so that you could look into the next car.

The 201 series are getting old, too. The first ones in Tokyo were on the Chuo line, which had the same orange color as the Osaka Loop line 103 & 201 series.

New Tokyu 6020 series

Tokyu Corporation will introduce new trainsets for the Oimachi Line by spring 2018.



The 6020 series trains will share a common design with the Tokyu 2020 series ten-car EMU trains due to be introduced on the Tokyu Den-en-toshi Line in spring 2018. (see #3285)

The two seven-car 6020 series trains on order are scheduled to be used on express services on the Tokyu Oimachi Line alongside the existing fleet of six Tokyu 6000 series, which are scheduled to be lengthened from six to seven cars by the start of the revised timetable in March 2018.
