Sometime, Japanese railfans go too far.

I saw some images on NHK about the confusion to get a commemorative Suica card in Tokyo Station. A few hours after, some these Suica cards were sold on websites in a very high price.

I would say those actions are indicative not of love of trains, but rather greed.

Last run: JR Central 371 series ex-"Asagiri"

Sad story. Las November 30, the 371 series from JR Tokai, former "Asagiri" service joint with Odakyu was removed from the circulation.



Since 2012 the train only realizes charter services as "Nakasendo" train on Chuo Line from Nagoya to Narai.

The withdraw from JR Tokai gives a second opportunity to the 371 series on Fuji Kyuko network. They convert the 7 cars set to 3 cars set for the Fujisan Tokkyu Services before the end of FY 2015.

It's got to be both because if no one was buying such cards at high prices there would be no reason to rush to buy them like that. After all there is no intrinsic utilitarian value to them.

Where were all of these 371 series photos taken? I'm assuming some are along the Chuo line, but which ones, and where? Not to mention those that are single-track or near Mt. Fuji.

These photos were taken in Gotemba Line, a former portion of Tokaido Main Line that runs near Fuji-san.

I know some of those single track shots were along the Gotemba Line, but WHERE? And some of those shots are double track, showing much more modern catenary then the Gotemba Line uses.

The last two pics are at the Kisegawa Bridge, located between Mishima and Numazu, on the Tokaido Main Line.

My guess: Fuji Kyuko will scrap the bi-level cars, but keep all five of the other cars of the 371 EMU, with three active and two reserve cars.

Wireless level crossing control debuts in Japan
Friday, January 16, 2015





JR EAST is claiming a world first with the rollout of wirelessly-controlled level crossings on the Senseki Line in Japan's northern Miyagi prefecture

The system uses JR East's Advanced Train Administration and Communication System (Atacs), which offers a similar level of functionality to ETCS Level 3 and CBTC. The Atacs onboard unit continually calculates the train's arrival time at the level crossing based on its own speed and performance. As it approaches the crossing, the train transmits a command signal to a radio base station, which in turn activates the level crossing barriers. When the onboard unit recognises that the train has cleared the crossing it sends a second command to the base station to raise the barriers.

Atacs was initially introduced on the 17.2km Adobdori – Higashi-Shiogama section of the Senseki Line in October 2011, and the level crossing function was added last month, initially at two locations, although the system will be extended to the 12 remaining crossings on this stretch of the route by the middle of the year
