New Shizuoka Railway A3000 Series



For some strange reason I didn't translated this information from November 2014. Is about the new A3000 Series train-sets for Shizuoka Railway (Shizutetsu), now under construction on J-TREC plant and expected to revenue in service in spring 2016. Current 1000 series will be removed.

También conocida como Shizutetsu, es un operador privado que explota una línea de 11 kilómetros dentro de la misma ciudad. También líneas de autobús, taxis, grandes almacenes, supermercados, una compañía constructora e inmobiliaria. Por negocio diversificado no será.

En lo referente al negocio ferroviario, la línea Shizuoka-Shimizu opera desde 1908 con ancho 762mm y con ancho 1067mm y 600V DC desde 1920 y totalmente duplicada.

En 11 kilómetros encontramos 15 estaciones, podríamos considerarla una línea de metro. La frecuencia en hora punta es de un tren cada cinco minutos, y en hora valle cada seis minutos.

Ahora, Shizuoka Railway ha anunciado la introducción de nuevos trenes a partir de la primavera de 2016. En total serán 24 coches (12 trenes de dos coches) en ocho años.



Como es habitual en los trenes urbanos al aire libre, el cuerpo estará hecho de acero inoxidable. Para el ahorro energético, usarán iluminación LED. La velocidad máxima de los trenes será el mismo que las unidades actuales serie 1000, 70 km/h. Inversores VVVF y frenos regenerativos.



Del diseño exterior se está considerando todavía el color. Por dentro tendrá asientos longitudinales y espacio para personas con movilidad reducida. Los nuevos trenes incorporarán información en pantallas LCD.



Estos trenes sustituirán a los actuales de la serie 1000, en servicio desde hace 40 años cuando se introdujeron en 1973.

In brief: 24 vehicles (12 2-car sets). Max speed 70km/h. Full LED lighting. VVVF Inverter and regenerative brakes. Inside the train, the information will be provided by LCD Screens (I'm 120% sure LCD screens in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean ).

Well, today the company has announced the name of the train (A3000) and seven of the twelve new trains will be painted in different colors: "Rainbow of Seven Colors" the other five train-sets will be silver.



They want to transmit the charm of Shizuoka with the colors: Passion Red (Kunozan Ishigaki strawberry), Pretty Pink (shrimps), Brilliant Orange Yellow (tangerines ¿of Shizuoka?), Fresh Green (wasabi), Natural Green (tea), Clear Blue (Mount Fuji skies), and Elegant Blue (the color of the sea on Suruga Bay).



Two beautiful CM to end this post. In the first is shown the daily work of the rail staff and the colors of the new trains. The second appeals the emotion of the commuters.

CM “Sasaeru Chikara”


CM “Tsunagaru omoi”

Shizutetsu is one of smallest railways of Japan. It's more a LRT than a commuter rail.

In all but rolling stock and alignment, I'd agree to an extent.

Sad news from Wakayama:



Quote:
Stationmaster Tama dies







Tama, the popular calico cat stationmaster at Kishi Station in Kinokawa, Wakayama Prefecture, died on Monday. She was 16, which would be considered around 80 in human years.

Wakayama Electric Railway Co. announced on Wednesday that it will give Tama the title of “honorary permanent stationmaster.” It will hold a funeral service for her at the station on the Kishigawa Line from 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Tama, who assumed the post in 2007, had been hospitalized after she fell sick due to nasal inflammation last month.

The Blue Line is the second largest in Japan after Tokyo Oedo Line. It has 40,3 kilometers and 32 stations from Shonandai (SW) to Azamino (N).

This is the new pattern of Rapid and Local services:


Own elaboration



Until now, the travel time from Shonandai to Azamino takes 67 minutes. With the Rapid service is expected to reduce in 10 minutes. A total of two rapid trains per hour will be put in service.

According the track route, the unique station with four tracks on the Blue Line is Kaminagaya (km 29,4) Map: http://okiraku-goraku.com/work/tikat...ohama_s_s.html

New rolling stock for Osaka Nankō Port Town Line

The Osaka City Transportation Bureau had announced on June 12 the new rolling stock for the Nankō Port Town Line from April 2016. This is the first time in 25 years since the last rolling stock added, the 100A series.





New trains will receive the name of "200 Series" and will be formed by seven four-car units.

As the rest of the new rolling stock introduced in the recent years, the trains will have 100% LED lighting, new climate systems in order to save 40% of energy. Also the information, that will be provided by LCD screens in four languages (Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean).

The main difference will be the color of each train that is unique, inside the cars too. Company said that they want to create a friendly environment.


Current 100A Series (1991):













Nankō Port Town Line is a rubbed tired line (VAL) inaugurated in 1981 as a transport system for the new south area of the Port of Osaka.

The line has a length of 7,9 kilometers and 10 stations from P09 Cosmosquare (Subway Chūō Line transfer) to P18 Suminoekōen (Subway Yotsubashi Line transfer). 30.000 users is the average daily ridership (2007).

New subway lines eyed for Tokyo



The Yomiuri Shimbun
The Tokyo metropolitan government has announced plans to construct two subway lines directly linking central Tokyo and two developing destinations — the Rinkai waterfront area, where major development is under way ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, and Shinagawa Station, the future terminal station of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen.

The metropolitan government will ask the central government to include the two new lines in the national policy on railway construction, which the Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry’s transportation policy council is to compile by the end of this fiscal year.

Of the two envisaged lines, the new line in the Rinkai area will connect the areas around Ginza in Chuo Ward and the Ariake district in Koto Ward, while the other line is expected to stretch from around Shirokane-Takanawa Station in Minato Ward, which is now served by subway lines such as the Tokyo Metro Namboku Line.

...

The metropolitan government previously announced it would request the construction of 17 lines to the central government, which comprises five “lines for priority consideration,” including the Haneda Airport Access Line and an extension of the Yurakucho subway line, as well as 12 “lines for consideration.” The latest two lines were added to the latter category.

Yes, yes YES! Also, build that cross Edogawa ward line or Koto ward line - that area needs a tangental link!

From Shirokane-Takanawa to Shinagawa could be a branch of the Metro Namboku Line. More interesting if this will run through the Tokaido/Yokosuka/Keihin-Tohoku Line.

For the Tokyo Station - Rinkai (Tokyo Teleport Station?) direct service I will imagine an eventual extension from Akihabara of the Tsukuba Express.

Is there a particular reason why it would have to be a branch of the Namboku line? Would it not be better to leave that section between Shirokane-Takanawa to Meguro just for the Mita line given they share tracks and then have the Namboku terminate at Shinagawa rather than branch it or does that not make sense?

The only problem I'd have with the extension of the Tsukuba express being the line to Rinkai would be the price of the ticket as it tends to be a little expensive.

I really hope that the Yurakucho line is extended, that makes so much sense and would make a really big subway interchange in Koto too. Of those proposed lines, are there any for poor Edogawa that gets a little neglected for a ward that is so close to the city? I remember there being a proposal in the past for a brand new line for Edogawa to link it up better.

They could do that, and that would be pretty typical of the usual operations of Metro and Toei. They could slso possibly divvy the trains so that half of each (Mita and Nanboku) go on each branch (Shinagawa and Meguro.) Probably not likely since Metro and Toei seem to avoid complicated service patterns like this on their own tracks. (Although the private railway networks feeding into them with through running arrangements don't shy away from complicated routing.)

This will eliminate the only bottleneck in the tokyo subway network (Metro + Toei) where four tracks merge into two (the Yurakucho Extension to Sumiyoshi would create a new one, though.) There are places where two lines share a route or even a tunnel, but except this segment of Nanboku/Mita, each line always has its own pair of tracks.

I also wonder if there is any consideration for future extension past Shinagawa. You would get to the Rinkai Line if you proceed in pretty much a straight line through Shinagawa.

The Metro Seven plan for a subway along Kannana dori from Kasai Rinkai Koen to Akabane would provide a new line through Edogawa. Both Metro Seven and Eight Liner have always seemed like cool plans to me, but also somewhat of a pipe dream.

I'm glad they're refurbishing the older rolling stock. For being a pretty neat monorail, it sure feels aged on the 1000 and (not yet refurbished) 2000 series.
