IIRC Tokyu sold their rolling stock business to JR East, who renamed it J-TREC.

More signs of impending S-TRAIN service is seen at Shinjuku-3chome station:


This is a booth that houses the on-platform vending machines for the limited Express tickets. Of course the shutters are closed so there's not much to see here yet, but here's where you'd be able to pay the limited express fee in case you didn't reserve it beforehand the normal way outside the ticket gates or online.


Only one door per car of the S-TRAIN will open; here's one of the stopping points on the floor so you know where to wait.

I wonder if Tobu will extend the TJ-Liner into the Fukutoshin and Toyoko lines in the same manner someday...

Regarding those Seibu Group posters--I'm actually surprised that Tokyo Metro or Toei Subway didn't do it first (at least for the recent series of public announcement posters).

Actually they have at least a poster in the same style, it's quite effective as it caught my eye.

First hydrogen bus from Toyota is now in operation. It is planned that up to 100 new hydrogen buses will enter Tokyo's streets by Olypmics in 2020. Photo by Jack Cao:

I like it. HFC vehicles are the cleanest humanity has developed I think. I wish our governments, especially those in the US, were more invested in funding their development for mass use.

But then again, oil keeps the Dollar afloat. Thanks Nixon.

Fuel cell buses... looks like I will have to design a fleet of them and run around relatively flat cities like San Jose or Oakland. But then, how should hilly communities like San Francisco proceed with such efforts when they need high-floored buses? In this case, adaptations may be needed to address the geographical variations of such places...

This is what cable cars are for.

The problem, though: only three cable car lines are left, which means reconstructing them with new technologies can not only be very expensive, but also impractical to use. It's like saying, "we can rebuild the railways now, but we have to modernize it and have to go through the trouble of environmental reviews, resident surveys, etc." Plus, the current cable car network is expensive to maintain, especially some of them are way beyond their useful lifespans.

The next best thing would be developing high-floored buses that can be powered by fuel cells. It's becoming unsurprising to see CNG buses in low-floors, so why limit the imagination? Tokyo has done it with fuel-cell buses on low floors, so what's stopping us from doing it on high-floored coaches?

Wow, this YT user has dedicated a lot of time and energy taking a compilation video of all Tokyo Metro trains currently in operation (although I believe the Ginza Line Series 01 train has been fully retired from operations)...


The only thing is, all of them are in Japanese... and yet, many of them are understandable like "type of train control", "maximum speed", etc.

Using that video as a guide, which of those trains are up for replacement in the next cycle? And which of those are the best design-wise (interior and exterior)?

as an everyday user (and at times, translator) of the system, I believe after the Hibiya Line's 05 series, the next would probably what I call the "Eidan 1970s Group" which are the 6000, 7000 and 8000 series found on the Chiyoda, Yurakucho, Fukutoshin, and Hanzomon lines.

The 8000s have been updated with LED lighting and LCD screens so they're likely good for another 10-15 years maybe. They can also interline across Tokyu's Den-en-toshi and Tobu's Skytree lines so that's a plus.

The oldest of the 7000 series have been retired to Jakarta whilst the newest have been running as 8 car trains in the Fukutoshin Line or 10 cars on the Yurakucho. However the 10000 series along with Tokyu, Seibu and Tobu trains have taken the urgency to rebuild away.

The Chiyoda Line's 6000 series is a bit stymied since they cannot run on the Joban Line (but are equipped with Odakyu equipment so at times are seen there.) Since all other sets can interline Odakyu-Chiyoda-JR, there might be a reason to upgrade or phase out the 6000 series soon.

My 2’...

Yes, yes, you can do this. I've done this, especially when wanting to get to the Baird Nakameguro Taproom from Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, or Shibuya.
(Psst: You can also get away with this on the other side of town by riding past Oshiage to Kita-Senju on the Hanzomon Line. )
