Flying Tojo special livery on Tobu 50090 and 8000 Series



From 28 November, 50090 series set 51092, based at Shinrinkoen Depot, is scheduled to receive full-body vinyls recreating the dark blue with orange stripe livery carried by 54 series and 53 series EMUs used on Flying Tojo limited express services on the Tobu Tojo Line during the 1950s. The set is scheduled to remain in this livery for approximately one year. (Wiki)

I was wondering why they didn't call the TJ liner, flying Tōjō to begin with actually.

Maybe I'm a sucker for nostalgia though. :rolleyes:

It appears the Flying Tōjō livery train will run from Ikebuburo to Ogawamachi Stations primarily, with a few runs out to Yorii Station, the connection the Chichibu Railway line.

The 50090 series 10 car trainset will be used between Ikebukuro and Ogawamachi, primarily on TJ Liner services, while the 8000 series 4 car trainset will be used between Ogawamachi and Yorii, as well as on the Ogose Line between Sakado and Ogose. Schedules and service segments will vary according to the day.

Yamanote Line new train in service

The first E235 series EMU has entered in service today, the 30 of November.

ANN News:


Railfan point of view:




The E235 series design was developed from the earlier E233 series trains, and like the E233 and E231 series trains, the new E235 series trains have stainless steel bodies. The exterior styling was overseen by the industrial design firm Ken Okuyama Design.

The trains are formed as 11-car sets with six motored ("M") cars and five non-powered trailer ("T") cars. The SaHa E235-4600 car (car 10) is modified from a former E231-500 series SaHa E231-4600 car.

Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout, with an individual seat width of 460 mm per person. Priority seating is provided at both ends of each car (except in end cars), and a space for wheelchairs or strollers is provided at one end of each car. LED lighting is used throughout. The initial plan was for paper advertisements inside the cars to be completely abolished, replaced by 18 LCD colour advertising screens in each car, but following feedback from advertising companies and users, the first train to enter service will include traditional paper advertisements in addition to the LCD screens.

The day before, an special circulation off the Yamanote line tracks was realized by JR East. Fans got some special merchandising and enjoyed the new trains:

I have to wonder why almost all of the urban and suburban carriages in Tokyo seem to be exactly 20m long, while in the west they're varying lengths but many seem to be longer. In fact, it's common for commuter rail carriages to be as long as 26m, which means less weight because there's fewer bogies per train. In Greater NYC, Toronto, Chicago, and Philadelphia almost all commuter rail cars are 25.9m, meaning a 207m train has 8 cars and 16 bogies, while in Japan a 200m train would have 10 cars and 20 bogies.

Standardization? In Greater Tokyo there's a lot of cross-carriage services and whatnot, so it makes a lot of things easier if everyone just builds to the same (probably outdated) specifications.

Or dimensions constrains of earlier-built lines (curves, tunnel diameter etc.).

That would make sense. I wonder if it would be possible to address the curve issue using articulated trains with jacobs bogies? Although that would affect standardization of course.

I don't think that green color is the best choice

They've experimented with that a few times in Tokyo. It doesn't seem to ever catch on, partly due to the standardization no doubt.

I don't think that they had much choice really, since the train is for the green line
I think that it looks really good, since I like that shade of green. But I'm also sure that it looks even better in reality.

All trains here in Kanto are built to agreed on standards because they must consider things like platform doors, and stabling too; a Tokyu set may overnight at a Seibu yard for example since they share routes. Don't forget if the set malfunctions, it limps into the closest yard for repairs, so the maintenance staff needs cross training just like the motormen

So should a Chiyoda Line 6000 series *accidentally* end up on the Tobu Tojo Line/Seibu network/Fukutoshin/Toyoko/Minatomirai Lines, it's able to work there until there's an opportunity for Tokyo Metro to take the train back?

Just a hypothetical situation, of course that has a very low chance of happening in reality. It must be hell to be rail engineering staff in Kanto - imagine all the stocks you'd need to learn...

I really don't think a Chiyoda line train set would find her way to a Tobu or a Tokyu network since Chiyoda lines share line with JR and Odakyu but I believe the people at Tobu and/or Tokyu can handle low level maintenance for a short period of time. Basically it's the same with Fukutoshin/Hanzomo trainsets.
