Question: where does Kintetsu run the 22000 Series EMU's? Are they found on all limited express routes on the entire Kintetsu system?

Yes, they are used on all the primary standard gauge routes in the Kintetsu system. They are based out of 4 rolling stock depots, and are primarily used on "Oto Tokkyu" [乙特急]class services, which are limited express services with more stops, as compared to the very limited stop intercity services such as the Urban Liner.

Niigata's based Echigo Tokimeki Railway (ETR) has announced the introduction of a new resort train by spring 2016. The train will operate in both lines of the company: Myōkō Haneuma Line (37.7 km, Myōkō-Kōgen - Naoetsu) and Nihonkai Hisui Line (59.3 km, Naoetsu - Ichiburi). The two-car diesel train will be branded "Setsugekka" (雪月花, lit. "Snow, Moon, Flowers").

It sounds like the Setsugekka tourist train is based on a modified ET122 (KiHa 122) trainset, which like the ET122's have been designed to operate safely in the very long tunnels on the former Hokuriku Main Line between Naoetsu and Itoigawa.

The goal is to deal with snow buildup-Hokkaido has some VERY heavy downfall.

I agree. I know it's for snow...but it's supposed to connect Hakodate with the outlying Shinkansen station, for the people who have paid for expensive Shinkansen tickets. It looks like (and is) regular commuter rolling stock. I wish it had been more express-like.

Well, I can agree that they shouldn't have three doors and longitudinal seats. I would have had two doors and transverse seats. But I suppose that they weren't willing to make such drastic changes. The exterior is quite nice, though.

IMO, despite the name, I believe JR Hokkaido sees the relay service as a commuter service and not a limited express, so I would assume they plan to allow anyone with a valid zairaisen ticket to use that train between Hakodate and Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto, and not just shinkansen passengers.

Here are some impressions from JR Hokkaido. I was riding between Hakodate and Sapporo.
- Limited Express Hokuto Train No. 9 between Hakodate and Sapporo (JR)
- via Hokkaido Koma-ga-take, Yakumo, Toya, Tomakomai, and Chitose
- takes 3 hours and 42 minutes to cover a distance of 318 km
- KiHa 183 series DMU railcar is running this service;






















































Here is the direct link to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLyoy00Z9aI

Enjoy!!!

Does anyone happen to have a timetable for the Rias Sea Liner? I am also looking for a timetable for the Hitachi through to Sendai prior to the earthquake.

Edit: Never mind, got them. Now looking for Senseki Line special rapid.

Kami-Shirataki station in Hokkaido Prefecture - the station became worldwide subject of CCTV, because of school student, who used it daily. Planned for closure on 26th March 2016, which coinsides with student's graduation from school:
