Sadly, those old 103 Series EMU's in JR West service are rapidly disappearing. They'll probably be completely gone by the end of 2018....

I'm actually surprised they still use them. These trains have a resistor controlled traction system, which is seriously inefficient for commuter trains and requires lots more maintenance and uses more energy when compared to a modern system.

There are actually fewer and fewer 103 Series trains left in JR West service--especially now that the 323 Series has begun to replace the 103's on the Osaka Loop Line. Even the 103's are scheduled to be phased out very soon from the Hanwa Line between Osaka and Wakayama. Indeed, it's possible the last stand of the 103's could be on the Bantan Line between Himeji and Teramae Stations--and even now, short-length 223 Series EMU's are already running on this line.

Yes, its a dedicated platform.

But if you look at older photographs, you will notice that it is just a remodeled service walkway.

Tobu Railway uses new fleet to revamp services
Friday, April 21, 2017



JAPAN’s Tobu Railway introduced a new timetable on April 21 featuring additional limited-express services operated by its 500 series Revaty trains which are entering service at the same time

The new timetable increases the number of limited-express trains between Tokyo, Nikko and Kinugawa by five services on weekdays, and nine at weekends and holidays. An additional eight limited express trains are operating on the Yagan and Aizu lines from Asakusa to Aizu-tajima. New limited express routes are operating between Asakusa and Kasukabe and now extend to the Tobu Urban Park Line in the morning and evening peak periods, while outbound trains are stopping at Sengen-dai for the first time

Small wonder why Tobu retired the 300 and 634 Series EMU's--they're being replaced by 500 Series EMU's.
