Those little noodle shops where you stand up and eat are VERY common sights on train platforms at just about all the larger rail stations in Japan. I think the exception is Tokyo Station, where there are all kinds of little restaurants on both sides of the ticket gate away from the platforms.

Toilets on short-distance trains? That is quite a luxury...

I'm surprised the new JR Hokkaido 733's sport longitudinal seating, unless given the short distance of the ride from Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto to Hakodate Stations, seat comfort is less of an issue.

lots of intercity JR trains have toilets. I think all the JR trains in the Tohoku region are equipped with at least one toilet, even if they don't go far.

The 733 series is the latest commuter trainset design for JR Hokkaido. These Hakodate Liner examples are the same, just with different stripes. Given that some services (outer suburban and regional local) these units are used for are quite long in km (and the distances between stations also considerable), toilets are standard.

Is it possible to rebuilt the current narrow-gauge railway between Hakodate Station and Oshima-Ono station for dual-gauge (1067-1435 mm)? In this way, some Hokkaido Shinkansen trains in local services (Sapporo - Hakodate, Sendai - Hakodate, Ueno - Hakodate...) could arrive in Hakodate Station.

The existing line does not have the clearances to fit the wider Shinkansen rolling stock.

Ah, good. Hakodate Station platforms are too narrow for Shinkansen trains.

Nishi-Nippon Railway orders Kawasaki EMUs
Thursday, February 04, 2016





JAPAN's Nishi-Nippon Railway has awarded Kawasaki Heavy Industries a contract to supply 18 1067mm-gauge EMU cars for the 75km Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line in Fukuoka prefecture

The 19.5m-long stainless-steel-bodied 9000 series vehicles will be formed into three-car sets, and the first trains are due to enter service next March replacing 5000 series EMUs, which date from 1975-1991. Production will take place at Kawasaki's Hyogo works near Kobe

How are they going to make that work? The Tenjin Omuta Line has 1435mm standard gauge track...

Of course it's an error by Railjournal. I doubt anyone in their staff even heard of Nishitetsu before this announcement.
Here is the official Nishitetsu press release:

Agree.

And probably about Japanese railways in general. In this kind of specialized media, the Japanese railways have a minor coverage compared with the european or american overrepresented... and considering the volumen of news posted every week here in SSC directly from Japanese websites.

dimlys1994, less literal copy-paste, and more elaborate, contrast, and contextualize the informations.

In railways news:

Less than 100 days to open the Kyoto Railway Musuem
