JAPAN | Urban Transport Compilation

All Osaka Loop Line 103 Series trains are officially decommissioned

Today marked the last run of the orange 103 series trains that have been a standard on the line for 48 years.

They've all been replaced by 323 Series trains that are the standard 3 door configuration on JR West's network, which means platform doors will likely be constructed soon.

お疲れ様でした、さよなら103系車両。

However, the 201 Series trainsets are still operating on the Osaka Loop Line, but those are scheduled to be phased out some time in 2018. Once the 201's retire, then JR West can finally construct the platform doors at every station that match the 221, 223, 225 and 323 trainsets that use the line.

Why they not install platform doors earlier? They have rope based platform doors that can match any type of train. Some station such Taktsuki on JR Kyoto line was installed.

Also its cheaper than conventional door types.

Those are still being tested; no company has planned a full-scale install of those types yet.

They are in use in Korea, though. Daegu uses them.

They look good.
But, how much service will they really provide?
I love photographing (and riding) the Toei Asakusa Line. With all the other railway companies providing through service, I was genuinely shocked when a Toei consist appeared as a late-night run from Tokyo back to Yokohama.

New Tokyu 6020 series

Tokyu Corporation will introduce new trainsets for the Oimachi Line by spring 2018.



The 6020 series trains will share a common design with the Tokyu 2020 series ten-car EMU trains due to be introduced on the Tokyu Den-en-toshi Line in spring 2018. (see #7655)

The two seven-car 6020 series trains on order are scheduled to be used on express services on the Tokyu Oimachi Line alongside the existing fleet of six Tokyu 6000 series, which are scheduled to be lengthened from six to seven cars by the start of the revised timetable in March 2018.

New Tokyu 2020 Series



The 2020 series trains are being built by Japan Transport Engineering Company (J-TREC) as part of its "Sustina S24 Series" family.

The first 10-car trainset, 2121, was delivered from the J-TREC factory in Yokohama in late November 2017, and shown off to the media on 30 November 2017.

Odakyu Line underground local tracks to open 3/1/2018



Since the underground section between Higashi Kitazawa and Setagaya Daita opened 3 years ago, all traffic has been operating on the deep bore express tracks, while the shallower cut and cover local tracks could be constructed since the surface tracks were no longer in service.

Now we will finally see full 4 track service after 1 March 2018 between Yoyogi Uehara and Noborito station; a full 6km. This will effectively double capacity across the line and is the 2nd step to eliminate a major bottleneck in the system (the first being quad tracking and elevations between Norborito and Umegaoka stations.

Here are a few shots of Shimokitazawa and the local platforms under construction.

Hibiya, Chiyoda line trains hit with rare graffiti

Around 5am on 13 January, a Hibiya Line 13000 series train (yeah, one of the new ones ) was spray painted with a 14m long "piece" not unlike a 1980s NYC subway car. This occurred at the Naka Meguro station layover tracks. The train ran in service to Kita Senju, where it was taken out of service and subsequently cleaned. Sometime during the same period a Chiyoda line train was hit as well.
