Last station has a central platform with two tracks. Also, the station has an small rail yard with three tracks.
Somewhat surprised and disappointed they didn't leave provision for future extensions. I seem to recall that there was indeed a case made for it.

Seibu to start "liner" services on Ikebukuro, Fukutoshin and Yurakucho lines

Now we now what the purpose of the new swivel-seat equipped 40000 series was for. 


The new "S-Trains" will come in 2 flavors: A traditional peak-hour liner services between Tokorozawa and Toyosu via Seibu's Ikebukuro, and Tokyo Metro's Yurakucho line, and a weekend and holiday liner service between Seibu-Chichibu and Motomachi-Chukagai utilizing the Fukutoshin and Toyoko lines.

The Yurakucho S-Train runs on weekdays only and will have 1 train in the morning headed for Toyosu and 5 return trips bound for Tokorozawa in the evening. This is the first time any Express services have run on the Yurakucho line.

The Chichibu S-Train is designed for cross-region tourism and is scheduled appropriately. It runs only weekend and holidays and will have one trip each in the morning (starting at Hanno actually) and evening bound for Motomachi-Chukagai; and one trip starting for Chichibu in the morning, a trip for Hanno in the early evening, and one terminating at Tokorozawa at night. If you remember my posting about the F-Liner trains that started last year, this is a step above that; these trains make even less stops.

Of course this also means there will be limited Express charges on top of the normal fare zones covered. I'll outline that in a separate post. This will also be the second Seibu train type allowed for thru runs; the other is the 17 year old 6000 series.

Meanwhile here is a video of a 40000 series testing on the system.

This new express service to make better use of the Chichibu line by emphasizing tourism is worlds better than the Cerberus proposal to simply shut the line down.

They're delivering the Tobu 500 Series trainsets at a pretty fast clip. Three 3-car trainsets are already test-running on Tobu Nikko and Kinugawa lines, and they just delivered another three 3-car trainsets to Tobu in the past few days.

Only three sets? Looks like publicity stunt/flagship to me.

Makes sense though. They'll figure out how to number the sets so they'll be 2020F, 2021F, and 2022F. Then probably go back and make more sets afterwards in some other range.
Anyway those 8000 series will be 50+ years old at that point. As much as I'll hate to see them go...

No way Minami Machida will be renovated to look like this. There is just not enough traffic at that station to justify a station like that even if they renovate that shopping center that they are doing right now.
