Hah, shows just how far translation software still has to go with non-European languages.

E235



Last week was transferred to Tokyo the first unit of the new E235 Series train for the Yamanote Line. For that reason, JR East held a press visit on March 28.

First, the organization of the unit:














「INTEROS」INtegrated Train communication networks for Evolvable Railway Operation System

Inside the train the main novelty is the elevated number of TV screens to allow all the commercial advertisements that usually you can see in posters.

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.

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?

I wonder why didn't JR East remove those old catenary poles during the construction of the Ueno-Tokyo Line? After all, the location of the poles was between Akihabara and Kanda Stations, right next to the Ueno-Tokyo Line "flyover" viaduct then under construction.

A very nice map. However,

1) It's in Japanese, and these is an English-language thread.

2) It doesn't have a caption, which is considered proper etiquette on this thread.

While it is missing a little bit of the metro area the map from the very first post on this thread is in english and is in far higher quality. Full size is here (zoom in) https://www.dropbox.com/s/xnynkgrfm6...twork.pdf?dl=0

Kawasaki to supply Tobu Railway express EMUs
Monday, April 27, 2015



KAWASAKI Heavy Industries confirmed on April 22 that it has received an order from Japan's Tobu Railway to supply eight three-car 500 series EMUs for use on limited express services in the Tokyo area

The 1.5kV dc 1067mm-gauge trains will enter service in spring 2017, initially on the 41km Tobu Sky Tree Line from to Tokyo Asakusa to Miyashiro in Saitama prefecture.
Styling of the 500 series has been supervised by industrial designer Mr Ken Okuyama and the exterior is intended to reflect the design of the world's tallest tower, the 634m Tokyo Sky Tree

What is funny is that the busiest section of the Keihin-Tohoku line is paralleled by the Yamanote line, yet that doesn't feature as one of the most crowded trains.

I always figured the Yamanote Line was the most crowded train line in Tokyo...

I wonder was that data on the overcrowded trains taken before or after the opening of the Ueno-Tokyo Line on 14 March 2015? With the opening of the Ueno-Tokyo Line, passengers coming in from the Takasaki, Utsunomiya (Tōhoku) and Jōban Lines no longer need to transfer trains at Ueno Station to get to the Tokyo-Shinagawa corridor, and that could tremendously relieve the passenger load on the Yamanote and Keihin-Tōhoku Line trains between Ueno and Shinagawa Stations.
