Since it's the trackside inverter then it should be for the complete number of trains that pass that point in the power network that it connected to that inverter.
But the thing is that the whole electrification of a complete line is cut into short pieces and if every one of them can save 600 kWh each day by replacing its inverter then the saving in total will be much greater for each line.

Tsukuba Express overview and current status

Tsukuba Express line (2005) is a new constructed railroad route connecting the Tsukuba Science City (Ibaraki Pref.) and Tokyo. A total of 58.3km runs in parallel to the JR Joban Line. This was under the "Act on Special Measures for integral promotion of residential land development and Railway Development in Metropolitan Areas" 「大都市地域における宅地開発及び鉄道整備の一体的推進に関する特別措置法」, or if I understand well, a kind of cooperation work on the development of the railroad and new urban areas at the same time.

Tsukuba Express uses ATO system, Automatic Train Operation. In addition, all the stations along the line uses platform doors. The line has a top speed of 130 km/h. Rapid service takes 45 minutes trom Tsukuba to Tokyo; from Tokyo, the trip requires 50 – 55 minutes.



TX-1000 and TX-2000 series (Photos: Wikipedia)

To prevent interference with the geomagnetic measurements of the Japan Meteorological Agency at its laboratory in Ishioka, the portion of the line from Moriya to Tsukuba operates on alternating current. For this reason, the trains include TX-1000 series DC-only trains, which can operate only between Akihabara and Moriya, and TX-2000 series dual-voltage AC/DC trains, which can operate over the entire line.

The first full year of operation (2006) this line moves the average number of 195,000 passengers per day. By 2013 the number of average passengers reach to 324,000 daily.


Ridership figures (Wikipedia)

Since the increase of users, the company added a new Commuter Express train on morning (inbound) and evening (outbound) rush hours and to relax the crowded stations as Minami-Nagareyama (JR Musashino Line transfer). The Tsukuba Express platforms was lengthened by 40m in either direction since autumn 2012 to allow the train stopping positions to be offset, thus reducing platform crowding during peak periods.


Nagareyama Station with extended platforms (Photos and more information: http://mirai-report.com/blog-entry-1182.html)


Nagareyama Station (photo: http://mirai-report.com/)

Moriya Station improvement work

Moriya Station is the first stop when trains enter in Ibaraki Prefecture. This station intersects with the Joso Kanto Line. In fiscal 2013 the Tsukuba Express station was used by an average of 24,326 passengers daily (boarding passengers only). Joso Kanto Line station was used in 2012 by 12,275 passengers daily.


Tsukuba Express Moriya Station main entrance (Wikipedia)


Tsukuba Express ticket barrier (Wikipedia)


Platform 2, arrivals only (Wikipedia)

The Tsukuba Express station is for tracks with island-type platforms. Track 1 is the general for train for up trains (Tsukuba-bound), track 2 is only for the trains who finish here and continues to the rolling stock depot. Track 3 for trains starting service here. Track 4 for down trains (Tokyo bound).

This is the current situation. Since February this year in Moriya Station, improvement work has been started.


Original map from mirai-report.com

Works consist in a double track for the rolling stock depot 1,5km north Moriya Station and two new switches to allow passing up trains on track 2, and down trains passing on track 3, in other words, allow overtaking.

This is the situation in July, in the double track works for the new access to the rolling stock depot. BTW you can see the extra space to enlarge the platforms for a future service with 8 car trains.


Looking for Tsukuba bound, in first place the space to extend platforms


White houses will be the place for new switch. Central right track will be the second track for the depot


New pillars

Works on the new viaduct-ramp to the rolling stock depot

Improvement work of the Tsukuba Express Moriya Station has been scheduled to be completed in 2017 fiscal year. As the third sector railway you would like continue to focus on the future of followed Tsukuba Express strong management that could be called unusual.

Here's a glimpse of what a random day looks like - in and around the Minatomirai Line in Yokohama, Kanagawa.

It is one of the most important lines in central Yokohama area, stopping at stations such as Minatomirai, Motomachi - Chukagai (Chinatown) and Yokohama Terminal - the worlds 5th busiest station, serving 760 million passengers a year

I really like the Minato Mirai line. It serves part of Yokohama that the municipal subway misses. Plus, now that it interlines with the Toyoko Line and eventually the Fukutoshin line it really makes life easy to get to Chinatown from Tokyo.

Joban Line will implement a direct operation to Shinagawa Station (new southbound).

This trains will run non-stop between Ueno and Tokyo and continue on the Tokaido Line towards Shinagawa and Yokohama stations.

Initially, up to 15 services (5 for each line) will run during morning peak, increased to 20 per hour in 2016.

Joban Line limited express services (Hitachi limited-stop and new Tokiwa semi-fast) will also be extended south of Ueno via the Ueno-Tokyo Line, with most services terminating at Shinagawa Station. These new services will introduce an easy limited express tariff system, as well as existing ticketless service using smart/mobile phones.

The amount of engineering, planning, coordination and more importantly TEAMWORK will surprise and amaze you. It's simply staggering and mind-blowing

1,200 Japanese workers convert above-ground train to subway line in a matter of hours

http://en.rocketnews24.com/2014/11/1...tter-of-hours/
http://curazy.com/archives/49175



On March 15, 2013, the Shibuya Station Toyoko Line above-ground train quietly shut down for good, to be replaced with a new section of subway track connecting Shibuya Station and the nearby Daikanyama Station. Converting the line from above-ground to underground was a massive operation, requiring a grand total of 1,200 engineers and countless man-hours.

But, even if you’d been living in Tokyo at the time, you probably wouldn’t have noticed the construction, because it all occurred during the train line’s off-hours… over the course of one single night.


In just one night, Tokyu Railways put their proprietary, somewhat clunkily named STRUM (Shifting Track Right Under Method) tech to the test, mobilizing all 1,200 engineers at once to slowly lower the existing tracks along a pre-built incline to connect it with the subway tracks below.

Building the incline required holding the tracks up on temporary scaffolding as the company dug out the earth below, which kind of makes us doubly glad the method held up.

In all, with the Tokyu railway’s last train arriving at the Shibuya Station at 1:00 am, and the first train the following morning departing at around 5:00 am, the army of engineers had a vanishingly short four hours to put everything in place and send a few trains on a test run before morning commuters arrived.



It’s almost a miracle that everything went smoothly, as with so many boots on the ground and such a short time to accomplish the task, it must have been a logistical nightmare; each engineer required to know exactly which bolt they were in charge of turning.

Thanks to Tokyu’s incredible organization and the commendable teamwork of the engineers, the new section of track from Shibuya to Daikanyama was ready to roll overnight, giving us a renewed respect for Japanese engineering.

HOLY S**T. Amazing work right there.

That is quite stunning isn't it? Jawdropping work. Sorry, didn't some people elsewhere say there was no innovation in Japan?

Still, that's rather old news. I actually rode that section of line last time I was in Tokyo.

Hey, I was there that night and posted it up as I rode the first train! I guess some Japanese speaking Westerners (other than me) finally stumbled across Tokyu's project website where the timelapse video is.

Just wait until they finally figure out how they're rebuilding all of Shibuya station from the foundations up while the existing stations are still in operation!

I remember seeing live coverage on the late night news when the conversion was just about to begin. I expect something similar this March when the Ueno-Tokyo Line is opened for revenue service, though the actual "switch" is far less dramatic, as the line is already hosting test train runs (though the engineering is similarly impressive).

Buses with automatic gearbox are unusual in Japan because the country imports all diesel oil and these vehicles has a high diesel consumption.

Here in Brazil, half of São Paulo city buses has automatic gearbox (ZF or Voith).

JR East Tsurumi Line


In Kanagawa, JR East operates a small railway line called Tsurumi Line (鶴見線). It is a newtork with a main line and two branches, with a total lenght of 9,7 Km. These trains are used mostly for local workers to access the factories of Tsurumi area.

Tsurumi Main Line connects Ogimachi Station with Tsurumi Station, where passengers can change to Keihin-Tohoku Line trains or Keikyu trains. Both JR East and JR Kamotsu operates in these tracks.

There are two branches:

- Umi-Shibaura Branch: with lenght of 1,7 Km, It connects Asano Station with Umi-Shibaura Station.

- Okawa Branch: with lenght of 1,6 Km, It connects Anzen Station with Okawa Station.



Umi-Shibaura Station is located inside Toshiba's Keihin Plant. As a result, only Toshiba employees with valid employee ID cards and invited visitors are permitted to enter and exit the station. But, JR East operates It. Toshiba operates also a shuttle bus between Asano and Umi-Shibaura on a schedule alternating with Tsurumi Line trains.

Tokyu Setagaya Line


Nowadays, Tokyo has only two tramway lines: Toden Arakawa Line and Tokyu Setagaya Line.

Tokyu Corporation operates the Setagaya Line (世田谷線) in the south region of Tokyo. With a lenght of only 5 Km, this line was inaugurated in 1923 by a private company called Tamagawa Dentetsu, and acquired by Tokyu in 1938. Initially, it was a branch of defunct Tamagawa Line (Shibuya to Tama River), closed in 1969.

Setagaya Line has 10 stations and a unusual 1372 mm gauge. Because the tracks are located in Its own right-of-way, It is a light rail de facto.

Nowadays, Setagaya Line carries 56,900 passengers/day. In comparsion with 2000, the demand has increased in 15%.

There is a own smartcard called Setamaru, Pasmo and Suica smartcards are accepted.

JR Ochanomizu Station redevelopment works

Fall 2014. Source: http://building-pc.cocolog-nifty.com/helicopter/



JR Ochanomizu Station is an strategic point of transfer for Sobu Local and Chuo Rapid Lines.

However, the situation of the station between the Kanda River and the street, and Hijiribashi and Ochanomizu Bridges affects the station because is a narrow space and the barrier-free facilities to this was underdeveloped.

JR East was launch a full-scale improvement work from autumn 2013. The barrier-free development will be finished by FY 2018 and the full completion by end of fiscal 2020.

JR East PDF: http://www.jreast.co.jp/press/2013/20130902.pdf



◆ Barrier-free development: New station building (about 2,900㎡) over the tracks connecting the Ochanomizu Hashiguchi (west) and Hijiribashi (east) entrances. Two elevators, one for each platform, two groups of escalators on each platform and six stairs (three on each platform).



◆ Development of the east and west entrances. Specially on the east entrance (Hijiribashi) with the relocation of the wickets and the construction of a new plaza with 500㎡.

Currently, there is a temporary pier in the Kanda River. Construction has been carried by Kajima Corporation and Taisei Corporation JV.


Temporary pier in the Kanda River near Hijiribashi (east) entrance.


Gate entrance for workers and machines on the north bank of Kanda River.




Seen from west side.


Over this will be stablished the new station building.


Tracks 3 and 4 with some parts of the platform with rubber mat.


The rubber mat is temporary, for the embankment seismic reinforcement.


... and for the new station building concrete pile.


Similar situation on tracks 1 and 2.

My C.E.R.A. show - May 2012

It has been over 2½ years since I presented my show to the Central Electric Railfans' Association. It was about trains in Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan. I gave it the title, "I Shot J. R. (& Keikyu, Keio, Odakyu, et alia)"; which was a twist on the then-recent revival of the 1980s television show "Dallas", and its protagonist|antagonist "J. R. Ewing".
This was seemingly a bit too much for Tony Coppoletta, who was the emcee of C.E.R.A. programs in 2012. He publicized it as "Trains of Tokyo and Yokohama".
Whatever.
I lost a substantial portion of my audience when the 'closing event' of Chicago Craft Beer Week occurred on the same evening (Friday), even though the calendar showed CCBW extending through to Sunday. (I also would have wanted to attend that 'closing event'.) But I still feel it was a good show. To illustrate that, I have now uploaded all the photographs I showed that night, and included the script in which I described the photographs. Some of these photographs can no longer be replicated. (The grade crossing in Shimo-Kitazawa has been eliminated.)
It went off-line a couple of times. After an incident at December 2014's C.E.R.A. show, in which we had a delay due to technical problems; I was actually asked if there was something I could show while we were trying to fix it. My answer was 'no', because I didn't have that USB flash drive with me then. [We did fix it.]
We had an internet connection. I remembered uploading this. When I went to the site of the last uploader I had utilized, the file had rinsed off-line.
So I decided to upload it again just in case we had another technical snag.
The file is 24.23 MB.
I'm still on a V.92 modem internet connection at the domicile. Finding a semi-anonymous uploader which would accept a file this large without disconnecting me (due to a time constraint) was troublesome. I have always railed against commercial uploaders like Megaupload .com for the reason which came to fruition a couple of years ago: They are highly susceptible to takedown orders, of which not all are valid, but the uploader administration removes the file regardless.
Further, uploaders which discriminate in favor of persons who have paid for a 'premium' account are especially hazardous: The takedown order will be accompanied with the demand to identify the 'premium' account holders who downloaded the file.

My photographs are Creative Commons - Attribution - NonCommercial - ShareAlike BY-NC-SA. Essentially, you can do whatever you wish with them, including making derivative works of them, as long as you do not try to make any money from doing so.
The file is now uploaded here.
The download password is 8124.
The .rar password is "Keikyu_via_Sengakuji" {without the quotes}.

Tobu Urban Park Line double track elevation project [Shimizu-kōen ~ Umesato]

Source:

Future-Mirai
Okiraku Goraku
Tobu Press Release
Wikipedia - Tobu Urban Park Line

Tobu Urban Park Line (Tobu Noda Line) is a 62,7 km railway line. It connects the satellite cities of North-East Tokyo, such as Saitama, Kasukabe, Noda, Nagareyama, Matsudo, Kamagaya, Kashiwa, and Funabashi.

Actually 1/3 of the line is single track: Kasukabe to Unga (18 km) and Sakasai to Mutsumi (3,9 km).

Tobu Urban Park Line is quite weird, in fact is two lines in one, with a center in Kashiwa where trains switchback. For that reason there is two different local services, Omiya - Kashiwa and Kashiwa - Funabashi.

Tobu plans of improvement makes 2016 the introduction of Express services between Omiya and Kasukabe (now, 21 minutes for 15,2 km). In addition, the stations between Kashiwa and Funabashi will have platforms doors.

But the major changes are the double track project in two sections.

On Sakasai - Mutsumi section (3,9 km), Tobu plans to start the works for double track in 2016.

Current status Sakasai - Mutsumi (2014-7-21) http://goo.gl/maps/K2BFZ


But the most interesting is the elevation and double track of 4,3 km between Shimizu-kōen and Umesato in Noda City (Chiba Prefecture), the elevation of two intermediate stations: Atago and Nodashi and the abolition of 11 grade crossings.

This 4,3 km are under the 18 km of single track on Kasukabe - Unga section.
