Indeed, I noted that too at the end of the video. I'm not sure how they would expand easily as there appears to be fairly new buildings lining the tracks on both sides at various points. On the northern side one would have to get rid of the pedestrian walkway alongside the tracks and turn the street into a shared traffic street. I'm not sure how popular that move would be.

FWIW the single track approach to Kyoto station manages 8 tph at both peaks (inbound in AM, outbound in PM), six of those services in the AM are either locals or rapids, which most commuters would be using. The off peak times are considerably less congested. If it were necessary due to customer demand, additional services could be introduced off-peak, with services continuing on to Saga Arashiyama Station, which has two island platforms and a crossover in the Kyoto direction, which allows turnback operations.

I moved there late 2010 so, yeah I guess so.

The double track elevated section is fine, although much bumpier than equivalents in Osaka and Tokyo for some reason (or maybe it's just me!!).

It was the overcrowding on the morning commute that drove me mad. If I wanted to be pushed* onto a train, I'd have moved to Tokyo! (*Slightly exaggerating!)

I must admit, once you pass through Sagano Arashiyama and into the mountains, the scenery is fantastic. Hozukyo is a fantastic station for starting the climb up Atago san, and then from Kameoka northwards it's very pleasant indeed.

It could actually be the rolling stock that you're on as well... I attended some classes at 立命館大学 back in 2001 and took the line up through the tunnels to Namikawa a few times to a friends house... Single tracked using 103s with one-man operations. The times have truly changed.

On 2014.02.25, JR West announced that it had received approvals from the MLIT to operate the proposed electrification and extension of the Kabe Line 1.6 km from its current terminus at Kabe (可部) Station. The project involves electrifying a portion of the line that was discontinued when the unelectrified section of the line between Kabe and Sandan-kyō (三段峡) was abandoned in December 2003. With urbanization on the section from Kabe to the site of the former of the Kōdo (河戸) Station, JR West will electrify and re-extend service onto this section, constructing two new stations, tentatively called Shin-Kabe (新可部) and Shin-Kōdo (新河戸). Revenue service will commence in spring 2016 with 99 trains a day.

...
This is for spring 2017 when the 1,6 kilometers extension of Kabe Line, north of Hiroshima City will be inaugurated.

The project to start soon consist in two new stations, the redevelopment of the current end of line (Kabe Station) and the electrification of 1,6 km.

This is the actuation plan. The Kabe Station (right), the new Station with single platform in the center, and the new termini Station on the left side. The triangles are the future level crossing.



Kabe Station http://goo.gl/maps/uYLzJ

The new station building will be constructed in front of the bus station canopy (beautiful design). The two end track will be removed.






The current main access is a level crossing on now abandoned tracks.




Render.

In the future, the station will have two platforms and a public overpass.





Underpassing the National Route 54 and Kabe Bypass. The old track is present in some parts.


Now, the track runs parallel to the Prefectural Road 267 only separate by a line of houses.


First level crossing serving narrow alley: http://goo.gl/maps/BFSGj

Just in front of this Supermarket is planned the new intermediate station: http://goo.gl/maps/ZXgpL

Current situation. At the bottom, a cultural center. Beside the Supermarket, the Municipal Bureau of Finance.


The Bureau of Finance is the white building. Firstly the second level crossing.


Back to the Prefectural Road 267 looking west.


Just before the final station this small iron bridge.


At about 700 meters from the intermediate station the terrains of the final station. http://goo.gl/maps/KPrjt

The area near the final station not yet been urbanized. A little further on is the Ota River and mountains on the other side, mountains that were the cause of the disaster last year in Hiroshima, landslides and such.

The 27 sets of Keio 1000 series are used only on Keio Inokashira Line, the only line of this private company with 1067mm tracks (instead the rest that uses 1372mm).

The Inokashira Line provides a direct connection between Shibuya and Kichijōji in west Tokyo. Only 12,7 km, but is the best way to save Shinjuku. Also is cheaper than JR (200¥ vs 220¥)... and faster, 17 minutes with the Keio Limited Stop Express service (35 minutes with Local service).

But the most interesting IMO are the different colored trains:




















Daily average is 547.845 passengers per day (2010).
