Anyway those 8000 series will be 50+ years old at that point. As much as I'll hate to see them go...
I think you mean 8050 series. The 8000 proper are already gone.

Well, there is an average of 33,000+ a year and rising...

That is pittance compared to the larger stations on that line like Aobadai, Tama Plaza, Mizonoguchi, Futagotamagawa,etc.etc.

I also do not think there are ONLY 33,000 passenger a year either, that makes it only 90 passengers a day which doesn't justify to build a station at that place.

More like 33,000 per day.

But if I know Tokyu, that renovation will also have housing and more commercial space as well attached to it. They're pretty good at squeezing more tenants into their developments after all the real estate operation is what pays most of the bills.

Yeah true but that place doesn't have that much open space nearby with it being close to the Tomei highway Yokohama entrance and all.

I've driven that stretch of Route 246 and have even been to that Nittori that's over there once back in 2012 or so.

I drove that stretch again over the weekend and it is totally different now.

That entire area is one big construction zone right now, and all of the signs say "TOKYU CONSTRUCTION" on them.

So I did a little digging and found out what's going on...



Right now it's a small collection of 2 story shops and a few disparate big box stores that make up a small outlet mall. The housing had been mostly single-family housing on the western edge and a few "mansion" apartment blocks.



But when it's all finished in 2019, there's going to be a huge shopping mall that stretches from the actual shopping plaza area to the station, encompassing the new station building itself.



Another conceptual image of the completed station renovation shows that it's really going to have widened platforms and a large overhead canopy. Looks like a mini Tama Plaza to me.



As you can see, they are well under way with the construction...

What's not shown in any of these pictures or diagrams is the additional mid-rise housing that is being built alongside this project. There will be plenty of people using this station when they get done, no doubt about it.

811 Series refurbishment



JR Kyushu is modernizing the 811 series Commuter Trains on Kagoshima Main Line, Nagasaki Main Line and Nippo Main Line.

In April 2017, set PM4 was refurbished, renumbered as set PM1504. Refurbishment changes include replacing the traction control equipment with SiC-VVVF equipment, changing to a single-arm pantograph, tinted passenger windows, full-colour LED destination indicators, and replacement of the former transverse seating with longitudinal bench seating.









The interior and exterior design was overseen by the industrial design company Don Design Associates (Eiji Mitooka).







The 811 series is an AC EMU train type operated on local services by Kyushu Railway Company since 1989.

1. Are these two cards can use interchangeably like Pasmo and Suica?
2. Can Kitaca use on Sapporo Subway and Sapporo Streetcar?
3. Can SAPICA use on JR Hokkaido lines?

thank you
