The smartest move JR Kyushu made was to completely rebuild Hakata Station to include a lot of shopping and eatery options, modeled likely on the JR East Tokyo Station and JR West Osaka Station designs. this station has become the hub of Fukuoka itself, not only because of being a major Shinkansen stop but also the terminating station for many regional limited express trains.

Nishi-Nippon Railway orders Kawasaki EMUs
Thursday, February 04, 2016





JAPAN's Nishi-Nippon Railway has awarded Kawasaki Heavy Industries a contract to supply 18 1067mm-gauge EMU cars for the 75km Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line in Fukuoka prefecture

The 19.5m-long stainless-steel-bodied 9000 series vehicles will be formed into three-car sets, and the first trains are due to enter service next March replacing 5000 series EMUs, which date from 1975-1991. Production will take place at Kawasaki's Hyogo works near Kobe

Happy 35th birthday to the Fukuoka subway, which opened 1981.07.26.

Battery-powered train coming to JR Kyūshū’s Chikuhō Line
http://mainichi.jp/articles/20160825...0m/040/048000c

JR Kyūshū invited reporters to its yard at Nōgata Rolling Stock Center (直方車両センター) to see test runs of its new battery-powered 819 series “DENCHA” train. The 2-car train will enter revenue service October 19, operating four roundtrips a day on the Chikuhō Line between Wakamatsu and Orio. A test ride will also be offered on October 1 between Nakama and Nōgata.

The train is considered the next-generation replacement of the railway’s DMU fleet. The batteries are placed underneath the car floor and power the train when it runs on unelectrified track. Regenerative braking systems allow the train to recoup some of the energy lost during braking and repower the battery. The train can run up to 90 km on batteries. Under electrified track, the pantograph is raised and the train runs on electricity provided by the overhead lines while simultaneously charging the batteries. In addition to the first unit already being tested, another six 2-car trains will be added in spring 2017.

About 40% of JR Kyūshū’s trackage is unelectrified, and many of the railway’s DMU trains are over 40 years old. The Chikuhō Line is only partially electrified between Nōgata and Orio, with the remaining segment between Orio and Wakamatsu unelectrified. While manufacturing costs for the new trains are ¥230 billion per car (about ¥1 billion per car more than standard EMU cars), maintenance costs are about 40–50% lower than for DMU trains. By transitioning from DMUs to the new battery-powered trains, the railway hopes to reduce overall costs and be able to maintain service on lightly-used local lines—a major issue given the railway’s planned listing on the stock exchange this fall. Similar battery-powered trains have been in service on JR East’s Karasuyama Line in Tochigi Prefecture since March 2014, while new trains adapted from JR Kyūshū’s technology will be introduced starting next spring onto the Oga Line in Akita Prefecture.

The great sinkhole of Fukuoka may indeed be attributed to work on extending the Nanakuma subway line to JR Hakata Station.

811 Series refurbishment



JR Kyushu is modernizing the 811 series Commuter Trains on Kagoshima Main Line, Nagasaki Main Line and Nippo Main Line.

In April 2017, set PM4 was refurbished, renumbered as set PM1504. Refurbishment changes include replacing the traction control equipment with SiC-VVVF equipment, changing to a single-arm pantograph, tinted passenger windows, full-colour LED destination indicators, and replacement of the former transverse seating with longitudinal bench seating.









The interior and exterior design was overseen by the industrial design company Don Design Associates (Eiji Mitooka).







The 811 series is an AC EMU train type operated on local services by Kyushu Railway Company since 1989.
