Hmmm...

No within-paid-zone transfer to the Ginza Line.

Go one stop on the Hanzomon Line to Omotesando, there's a cross-platform interchange there.

That's actually what's written on the signage and said by conductors aboard both lines to make transferring easier. Unfortunately it's only done in Japanese right now 😑

Which part the diagram or the layout itself?

Either ways there are a lot more where that came from.
Either way you should take a look at this web site that gathered all the underground diagrams of stations in Japan.

For example simplified Shibuya station diagram actually gives you more detail.

Seibu to start "liner" services on Ikebukuro, Fukutoshin and Yurakucho lines

Now we now what the purpose of the new swivel-seat equipped 40000 series was for.


The new "S-Trains" will come in 2 flavors: A traditional peak-hour liner services between Tokorozawa and Toyosu via Seibu's Ikebukuro, and Tokyo Metro's Yurakucho line, and a weekend and holiday liner service between Seibu-Chichibu and Motomachi-Chukagai utilizing the Fukutoshin and Toyoko lines.

The Yurakucho S-Train runs on weekdays only and will have 1 train in the morning headed for Toyosu and 5 return trips bound for Tokorozawa in the evening. This is the first time any Express services have run on the Yurakucho line.

The Chichibu S-Train is designed for cross-region tourism and is scheduled appropriately. It runs only weekend and holidays and will have one trip each in the morning (starting at Hanno actually) and evening bound for Motomachi-Chukagai; and one trip starting for Chichibu in the morning, a trip for Hanno in the early evening, and one terminating at Tokorozawa at night. If you remember my posting about the F-Liner trains that started last year, this is a step above that; these trains make even less stops.

Of course this also means there will be limited Express charges on top of the normal fare zones covered. I'll outline that in a separate post. This will also be the second Seibu train type allowed for thru runs; the other is the 17 year old 6000 series.

Meanwhile here is a video of a 40000 series testing on the system.

The Yurakucho Line doesn't have any overtaking points for express service, does it? How would such a Liner operate on the subway?

Not sure until see a diagram. But remember the Chiyoda line does just fine with Odakyu MetroLiner services...

Only Kotake-Mukaihara has a kind of layout for passing trains... but is the connexion point between Tokyo Metro and Seibu.

Tokyo Metro 1000 series "original" (1927)



Tokyo Metro put in service an special 1000 series based on the original trains that ran on the Ginza Line. The train are finished in a lemon yellow livery applied using vinyl sheets, recreating (outside and inside) the appearance of the original 1000 series trains introduced on the line in 1927.

Ummm.... not that I don't think that that isn't cool, but what exactly does the sushi train have to do with Keikyu? Is Keikyu doing a Sushi Special?

By the way LOVE that Tokyo Metro "recreation" of the original Ginza Line subway train on that 1000 Series trainset (which alas, will be retired in March 2017).

As for the new Tobu 500 Series trainset, that new model could replace a LOT of limited express trainsets now in Tobu service. At least the 1800 Series will be replaced, and the 300/350 Series converted from 1800 Series will also be gone, too. I expect the 100 and 200 Series to soldier on for another 8-10 years.

The new 500 series are scheduled to augment existing services, not replace any rolling stock.

Also, its the 01 series that are scheduled for replacement. The 1000 series are brand-new.

While I almost agree, the 1800 Series and the 300/350 Series rebuilt from a small number of 1800's date from the 1970's and are starting to get really up there in age. As such, they could be candidates for quick replacement by the new 500 Series as more trainsets arrive on Tobu property from the KHI plant in Hyogo.

The problem with that argument is that there are currently 30 vehicles in the 1800 and 300/350 series. Only 24 vehicles of the 500 series are being ordered. You can't expand services and replace vehicles with fewer.

While I agree, I've seen YouTube videos of the interiors of the Tobu 300/350 Series trainsets--they're getting pretty old (even if well-maintained). I expect Tobu to do later follow-on orders so they will start to replace the oldest 100 and 200 Series trainsets.

I think that an additional order would be used to replace the 300/350 series. The 100 Spacia are still quite new and just got a major overhaul. Tobu seems to like to keep trains in service for a long time.

Also, does anyone have any news on grade-separation projects like Takenotsuka? What plans are advancing for new lines?
