Hope JR East improve the stability of computer system & Signal system.
I know JR East is planning to upgrade the existing signal system to (Distance-to-go) mode.

It may increase the line capacity and shorten journey time.


Japanese shinkansen, is the best HSR system I have ever seen.

 JR東日本は3日、2013年春に東北新幹線で時速320キロ運転を始める新型車(E5系)のデザインを発表した。現在、10両編成の量産先行車を製造中で、今年夏から試運転を始める。

 新型車は上半分を緑、下を白、中央にピンクのラインで塗装し、「未来を感じさせる先進的なイメージとスピード感」を表したという。シートや内装は茶や赤など暖色系でまとめた。

 設計費を含めると、1編成が45億円。15年度までに計59本を投入する。

 東北新幹線は10年12月、現在の八戸から新青森まで延伸される。新型車は11年春から営業運転を始めるが、当初は国内最高タイの時速300キロで走行する。320キロ運転になれば、東京―新青森間は最速3時間5分で結ばれる。

I wouldn't call Kyoto's station historical.

~~~~~~~
And the E5, wow it will take some time to get used to, it's like an extreme version of the N700. Luckily this summer the 1st trail runs will start, I want to see how it looks for real.

Technical wise it will probably be better than the N700, aesthetic wise, I think I like the 700 series the best, not a huge duck bill or alligator mouth like the N700 and E5.

Japan's definitely got their HSR train styling under control.

Oh wait, there's the N700...and the Fastech....nevermind.

^ It's not obsolete just yet.
It's just JR Central that have decided that JR West (who owns the trains) are no longer allowed to run the 500 series on the Tokaido line, especially since the new N700 makes the run faster and more economical then the 500 ever did.

JR west on the other hand have shortened (some?) the trains and use them to replace the old 0-series (withdrawn on 14 December 2008) on the Kodama service on the Sanyo line.

wasn't the N700 designed aesthetically by a German?

Ah, no it wasn't! ha.

The FasTech Dolphin nose (Stream) was nice looking.


But they chose the Arrow (for noise and performance reasons, I believe)

Where do bullets call at Tokyo? Do they use the historic Tokyo Station or have they their own dedicated station?

The 2 terminals of the Tokaido Shinkansen and the Tohoku Shinkansen are located at Tokyo station, but there's no connection between the two lines. The two terminals are at the other side of the station then the historic building.

There are 2 more Shinkansen stations in Tokyo at Shinagawa and Ueno.

It seems Japan has one of the best railway technologies in the world, but it naturally suits to Japanese environment; a mountainous land with extremely dense population. French/German technologies, on the other hand, suits better to less densely populated area with less mountainous terrain, that is, pretty much anywhere else but Japan.

「400系新幹線つばさ」来年度内に引退

平成4年7月から山形新幹線「つばさ」として営業運転を始めた「400系」が来年度内に姿を消す。新幹線区間を時速240キロ、在来線区間を130キロで走り、東京~山形間を乗り換えなしの2時間27分で結んだ最先端車両だった。全12編成中2編成は既に引退、残る10編成も後継の「E3系2000番台」に役割を譲ることになった。

〈ハンサムな顔ですね~。ところでこの鼻の部分、何かが隠されています。ジャカジャン♪ ここには自動連結器が入っています。おっと出てきましたね~〉

小泉今日子さんと400系が“共演”した山形新幹線開業を知らせるCMの一コマ。ロボットのように先端部が左右に開き、連結器がスムーズに出てくるシーンに鉄道ファンの目は奪われた。

「カバーが開閉する最初に流れたテレビコマーシャルのインパクトが強かった」と振り返るのは東京都東村山市の自営業、林昭夫さん(42)。旅行のついでではなく400系を撮影するために妻子を連れて東京駅を訪れた。

林さんは「フロントの曲線が0系っぽくて(後継の)E3系よりも好き」と話し、2階建てのE4系「やまびこ」を連結して出発する様子をカメラに収めていた。

400系はJR東日本が民営化後に初めて手掛けた新幹線。在来線と新幹線を直通するという、当時としては常識外の発想で誕生した。同社は「開発の先端を歩んだ車両。『お疲れさまでした』と言いたい」とねぎらう。

在来線を走るには車体の大きさが制限されるにもかかわらず、新幹線用と在来線用に保安装置などの機器類を二重に備える必要があった。そして一番苦労したのは、本線を走るフルサイズの新幹線と分割併合するための自動連結装置の開発だった。

車種の違う新幹線車両の分割併合は初めて。ただ連結器をぶつけるだけではない。先端のカバーが左右に開いて一度引くような動きをしてから連結器がぐっと出てくる。順を追ったロボットのような動きは何回も試験を繰り返して実現したという。

前途多難が予想されたこともあった。

量産先行車が試験走行を実施していたころ。緑の帯が入る前のメタリックグレーの車体を見た子供が「まだ色塗ってな~い」と話しているのを聞き、開発担当者は落胆した。

メンテナンスは大変でも斬新さを出すためにあえて採用した色だが、新幹線といえば「白」の時代だっただけに、地元の山形県にデザインを説明したときも反応は芳しくなかったという。

デビュー後、心配は杞憂(きゆう)に終わる。

平成4年7月に山形新幹線「つばさ」として営業運転を開始。当初6両編成だったが、需要に応える形で3年後に1両増結し7両編成となる。福島駅で新幹線を降り、少し離れた在来線ホームまで歩く必要はない。多くの乗客が便利さを実感したのだ。

心配されたメタリックグレーの外観も好評を博し、鉄道アイドルの木村裕子さんが「彼氏は400系つばさ」と公言するなど、人気の高い新幹線車種の1つになった。デザインは後継のE3系2000番台にも継承されている。

According to some Youtube videos their platforms are right next to each other, so I guess it'll be easy to connect their tracks if that's the case...
