Refurbishment of the Meitetsu 1200 Series "Panorama Super"

Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) has presented the first 1200 series "Panorama Super" (introduced in 1988) refurbished. A total of 18 cars (3 6-car set) will pass the reform.

The main differences are aesthetic: More read instead white. Black color near the windows mark. Inside, new seat moquette, western style toilets and introduction of HD LED monitors.

Outbound shoo-fly track for Meitetsu Seto Line near Kitayama opens
http://response.jp/article/2016/08/16/280166.html

On September 17, a major milestone was reached in the grade-separation of the Meitetsu Seto Line near Kitayama Station in Nagoya City’s Moriyama Ward, after outbound trains began using a new shoo-fly track between Obata and Ōmori – Kinjō Gakuin-mae.

The project involves elevating about 1.9 km of the Meitetsu Seto Line surrounding Kitayama Station, eliminating 9 existing grade crossings and connecting three new roads underneath the future elevated tracks. The project received urban planning approvals in March 2006, and Meitetsu broke ground in 2014.

The track switchout took place after the end of service on September 16, and outbound trains began using the new temporary track with the start of service the next day. A small segment of the inbound track was also switched out, and a temporary platform at Kitayama Station also opened to serve outbound trains using the new shoo-fly.

Overview:



Rendering of new viaduct and National Route 302



Cab views of the new elevated section and a tour of the new temporary outbound platform at the station on the first day of service. Apparently, there was some trouble with the new switches and some of the passenger information systems (PA, departure boards, etc.). The new platform can be served from either side, so this will permit the Seto Line to offer cross-platform transfers between slow and fast trains for the first time.



For comparison, a cab view from earlier this year (April), first on the outbound track, then on the inbound track.

Good update quashlo. I was in Nagoya a couple of weeks ago. It has developed quite a bit from when I used to live there and the transportation overall is pretty good but I felt the subway stations could use renovations, especially compared to most of Tokyo's subway stations.

With the Maglev rolling out in 2027, there are many changes and new developments set to occur throughout Nagoya to meet the expected demand of a growing number of visitors.

Nagoya and the Tokai region as a whole is more dependent on the automobile than the other major metro regions, which likely explains the condition of some of the subway infrastructure. I visit once or twice a year, and always note the less frequent headways, as well as the rather overbuilt platform lengths, though of course the latter is good should passenger numbers increase. A positive by-product of this is the length Meitetsu historically has gone to woo passengers from their cars, by offering amenities and service patterns not typically seen on Tokyo area railways, at least at non-limited express ticket prices.

Does that explain all those very nice limited express trains between Meitetsu-Gifu and Meitetsu-Toyohashi stations?

Yes, it could very well be. In addition, at one time, Meitetsu was to the only choice for frequent long distance interurban services between Toyohashi and say Ichinomiya or Gifu, as JNR on the same corridor ran a more old-fashioned conventional (i.e. non-interval) service which lacked appeal and convenience to interurban commuters. This changed in the late JNR era and into the JR era, when the shin-kaisoku trains were introduced, giving Meitetsu some competition for passengers.

Interesting backstory. I`m really gonna need to read up more on Japanese trains.

I often take the 青春18切符 or JR Youth Ticket (though it can be used at any age) because it's a way to get more in depth views of the local area and people and of course it's cheap. So usually I use JR but on this trip I used Meitestsu once from Gifu to Ichinomiya and indeed noticed the interior of train was pretty decked out. Meitetsu was a bit more expensive than JR but suppose the price difference is reflected in the interior. Anyhow, transportation in Nagoya was all around more expensive than Tokyo which has surprisingly cheap fares for such an expensive city.

JR Central signs agreement on Kanie Station upgrades
http://www.chunichi.co.jp/article/ai...702000062.html

Kanie Town and JR Central have signed an agreement to construct a new station building and north–south public walkway spanning the tracks at JR Kanie Station. The town will bear 70% of the cost, and completion is scheduled for FY2020. Currently, the station only has a regularly-open ticketing entrance on the south side, making it inconvenient to access the station from the north side of the tracks.

Currently, direct access to the station from the north side of the tracks is not provided outside of the commute period (from start of service to 9:00 am). Only the south-side ticketing entrance is regularly open at all times, despite a growing number of residents in the neighborhoods north of the station.

The upgrades will replace the existing headhouse with a new fully-accessible elevated station building above the tracks and a new 80 m long public walkway through the station, making it possible to easily access the station from either side of the tracks.

Construction cost will be approx. ¥2.63 billion, of which the town will bear about ¥1.8 billion, JR ¥42 million, and the remainder coming from grants and other sources.

According to the town, 17 ha of agricultural land on the north side of the station was designated as developable land in 1997. Following a land readjustment project, construction of multi-unit housing has progressed, increasing the population from 30–40 prior to the project to the current 1,100 residents.

With the number of station users growing, the town requested that JR construct a new ticketing hall on the north side of the station, and offered to construct a new public walkway. The improvements will eliminate the need for north-side residents to make long detours to the nearest grade crossings to access the station from the south side.

...Tokyo which has surprisingly cheap fares for such an expensive city.

Is Tokyo really expensive anymore? Try living in London or San Francisco.

Yeah, I don't think things are really all that expensive for visitors if you compare to other large alpha / beta cities in developed countries (London, Paris, NY, etc.).

For residents, the nice thing about Tōkyō is that there is a range of housing types at all price levels and almost everywhere has good transportation, since you are rarely very far from a train station with frequent service. You can pretty much get anywhere without a car. Plus, you generally don't have to worry about crime or safety issues that might otherwise preclude you from choosing a cheaper neighborhood.

The 1400-type tram first appeared in Nagoya in 1898. This vehicle on display just outside the Science Museum was built in 1936 and was among the first 20 vehicles of its type. The city's tram network was discontinued in 1974.
