Finally managed to see One of Keio’s new 6000 series trains over the New Year holiday.

Both times it was heading in the opposite direction from where I was going so I couldn't ride on it.

Sotetsu 20000 series to enter service 11 February 2018

It was media day over at Sotetsu's Ebina yard where 20001F was shown off as the first of 10 trains to be delivered as part of the ramp up to through running with JR and Tokyu.

Also shown was the ongoing construction at Hazawa station where the Sotetsu/JR/Tokyu split will start.



The new trains built by Hitachi are in the new Yokohama Navy Blue livery and will enter service next month. A new train will go into service every month from then until October when all 10 have been delivered.

The trains feature onboard Wi-Fi, taller ceilings, spacious seating, LED lighting and LCD screens galore.

Hibiya, Chiyoda line trains hit with rare graffiti

Around 5am on 13 January, a Hibiya Line 13000 series train (yeah, one of the new ones ) was spray painted with a 14m long "piece" not unlike a 1980s NYC subway car. This occurred at the Naka Meguro station layover tracks. The train ran in service to Kita Senju, where it was taken out of service and subsequently cleaned. Sometime during the same period a Chiyoda line train was hit as well.

God, I hope that "culture" doesn't proliferate in Japan. It's really annoying here in Europe - you get graffiti everywhere and sometimes it can take ages to get it cleaned because, guess what, it's EVERYWHERE!

Dang... was someone caught on CCTV tagging that train? That surely is a rare case, but it can be a bad sign that security may need to be stepped up for such taggings to reduce. I especially appreciate how clean and sleek Japanese trains are, but fortunately, this is a rare case that can be addressed right away.

I'm glad Sotetsu went back to Hitachi, their traditional supplier, rather than J-trec for this order of new rolling stock (also the dark blue livery rather than the ubiquitous stainless). The push button passenger-operated doors are a first for Sotetsu- a feature intended for the layover time at terminals, to keep the interior temperature more or less constant in peak summer and winter conditions.
