JR Shikoku 8600 Series

After a year being used the first two 2-car units, Kawasaki Heavy Industries has started to send to JR Shikoku the "mass production" of the rest of 8600 Series for limited express services in Shikoku.

At least two more trains will have a 2-car for, and two trains like the following has 3-cars.

I believe the 8600 Series EMU will be primarily assigned to limited express service between Takamatsu and Matsuyama, like I said earlier. Not sure if some trainsets will be used on the services to Okayama, though.

Would anybody happen to have the timetables for the Sanriku Coast lines from Hachinohe to Sendai as they were prior to the Earthquake? I would especially appreciate any "Rapid" trains.

The lines I'm referring to are:

Senseki
Ishinomaki
Kessenuma
Ofunato
Minami-Rias
Yamada
Kita-Rias
Hachinohe

I would also appreciate timetables for the Kamaishi and Iwaizumi lines.

Finally, I would like a timetable for the Hitachi all the way through from Ueno to Sendai (again, as it was prior to the Earthquake).

I am currently planning a novel, and would like to include aspects of these in the plot.

Thank you very much.

Koumi Line( Yatsugatake highland line)

Quote:
The Koumi Line (小海線 Koumi-sen?) is a railway line in Japan operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East). It links Kobuchizawa Station in Hokuto, Yamanashi with Komoro Station in Komoro, Nagano, and extends 78.9 km through the mountains with a total of 31 stations. It roughly follows the route of National Route 141, paralleling the road at some places and crossing it twice.

The JR East Koumi Line is also the highest-altitude true railway line in Japan, with a maximum altitude of 1,375 meters (just over 4,511 feet). The highest true railway station in Japan, Nobeyama, is on this line at 1345.67 meters (4415 feet).

Get an old JTB timetable via a proxy bidding service for Yahoo auctions. Even better, go to the region and do the research there. It will make your writing better.

Not sure what a JTB timetable is, or how to use a proxy bidding service. I would probably also need help translating it. And that is assuming that I can afford to buy or ship it. My funds are decidedly limited for the foreseeable future (this novel is something of a pastime between job applications).

Needless to say, actually TRAVELING there is out of the question.

Battery-electric trains for Japan's Oga Line
Tuesday, November 24, 2015



EAST Japan Railway Company (JR East) has announced plans to carry out trials with ac battery-electric multiple units (BEMUs) on the 26.6km Oga Line in Japan's northern Akita prefecture from Spring 2017

Currently JR East uses KiHa 40 series DMUs to operate an hourly service, which runs for 13km on the electrified Ouu Main Line between Akita and Oiwake, before continuing along the non-electrified branch to Oga

Is this a common problem? Seems very unique, but I can see how dead turtles would jam moving parts in track junctions.

Turtles are cold blooded, they seek out places to sun themselves. And rivers can have a LOT of turtles living in them, I've seen them piled on top of one another on floating logs and other places before. So a railroad track next to a river would attract turtles and they get stuck and then the track switch also gets stuck and the train crashes into the river! What a disaster!

Refurbishment of the Kintetsu 22000 series "ACE"

Manufactured by Kinki Sharyo in 1992, now, the 22000 "ACE" trains are under reform.

The entire fleet is scheduled to undergo a programme of refurbishment from 2015, with new interiors and a new yellow and white livery. The first trainset treated, AL10, was completed in November 2015, scheduled to return to service on 13 December. (Wiki)

I looked into a JTB timetable, and I realized that I don't know how to translate it, and I can't afford shipping even if I did. Does anyone have any data that can help me?
