Just so there's no confusion, that is for Yamanote Line stations only, and only for Yamanote Line platforms at those stations. Other platforms at those stations will not receive doors. Ōsaki and Ikebukuro are somewhat special since these have four Yamanote Line platforms each instead of two.

Ah you are right. It's only for Yamanote Line. I forgot to say it because it was a reply to [JR East] Installation of platform doors on Yamanote Line.

JR East uses OLEDs in advertisements
http://www.business-i.jp/news/ind-pa...905190095a.nwc

Quote:
On May 18, JR East began an experimental study of advertisement displays using OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) at JR Ebisu Station in Shibuya Ward, Tōkyō. This is the first time OLEDs have been used for advertisements inside train stations in Japan. The vivid images, anticipated to be a key technology in next-generation flat-panel television, have captured the attention of riders.

JR East has installed 16-in. tall by 10-in. wide displays at the top and side of two faregates located at the east exit of the station. In the trial, the displays will cycle through four still-image advertisements including an ad for a soccer team, changing every ten seconds.

In an experiment of electronic paper advertisements conducted by JR East in February 2008, only 4,090 colors could be displayed—equivalent to regular illustrations. OLEDs, however, can display up to 16.77 million colors, producing images at picture quality.

The experiment will run until May 31. JR East will evaluate the feasibility of OLEDs by examining the technological concerns and conducting surveys of passengers and ad sponsors.

In addition to use in mobile phone displays, Sony is marketing OLEDs as the next-generation of flat-panel television techonology after LCDs.

With threat of swine flu, passengers turn to masks
http://sankei.jp.msn.com/affairs/dis...1217010-n1.htm

Quote:
On the morning of April 18, the first weekday after confirmation of the first cases of swine flu inside Japan, it was hard not to miss all the mask-wearing passengers on commuter trains between Kōbe and Ōsaka, where several people have been infected with the virus.

On Hanshin trains, as many as 30 percent of passengers were wearing masks during the rush hour. JR and Hankyū trains seemed slightly less crowded than normal, possibly the result of the absence of students heading to and from classrooms as schools have temporarily closed down.

At Hanshin Nishinomiya Station in Nishinomiya City, Hyōgo Prefecture, among the passengers waiting at platforms, those donning masks stood out. As a Nara Station-bound rapid express from Kōbe arrived, heading for Ōsaka, as many as 30 percent of passengers were wearing masks.

When a middle-aged man coughed, other passengers turned their heads to see—perhaps a result of anxiety over the uncertainties regarding the sequence of events and status of the swine flu outbreak. While there were next to no middle- or high-school students inside the train, one female student in uniform covered her mouth with a handkerchief, perhaps in place of a mask.

And then there is Hankyū’s Ōji Kōen Station in Nada Ward, Kōbe, the closest station to the prefectural Kōbe High School—where several people have been diagnosed with the virus—and several other private schools. During commute times, the station is normally bustling with students on their way to school, but there were no students in uniform today.

“Usually, there’s elementary school children running through the faregates around this time…” remarked one attendant at the station (49yo). “It’s much emptier than usual,” said one commuter (58yo) on his way to the office. “After hearing that there were cases discovered in Kōbe, I went out to buy masks immediately,” said one male office worker (32yo) standing at the platform.

At JR Ōsaka Station, a male office worker (47yo) from Himeji in Hyōgo Prefecture who had gotten on at Aboshi Station on the San’yō Line, remarked, “There aren’t many students at all on the train… It’s practically all salarymen in masks. I’ve never been on a train this empty during the rush hour.”

However, on lines outside of the Kōbe – Ōsaka corridor, few passengers chose to wear masks, with the rush hour continuing relatively unchanged. A male office worker (42yo) from Neyagawa City in Ōsaka Prefecture who had boarded a Keihan train from Neyagawa-shi Station, said, “I saw people wearing masks, but they were few. I didn’t feel it was any less crowded than usual.”


After the spread in swine flu cases, commuters wearing masks stand out at JR Sannomiya Station (April 18, 8:20 AM).


Outside JR Sannomiya Station (April 18, 8:05 AM).


While normally bustling with children headed to school, Ōji Kōen Station was deserted today.

JR East E233-2000 series begins trial runs

May 19 was the first day this series made an appearance, doing test runs on the Tōkaidō Line from Zushi to Tsurumi, and from there on via the Musashino Line to the Jōban Line between Toride and Matsudo. The first unit was constructed by Tōkyū Car Company and is part of a series of 18 trains (180 cars total) that will be built for JR East to replace aging 203 series and 207-9000 series sets currently running on the Jōban Local Line and Tōkyō Metro Chiyoda Line through-service. Due to restrictions on the Chiyoda Line, the sets look quite different from existing 233 series trains on the Tōkaidō Line, Chūō Rapid Line, and Keihin-Tōhoku Line, with narrower width and emergency exits at the front of trains. The E233 series is the newest series of trains for use on JR East’s major commute lines and their introduction to the Jōban Line was originally announced in March 2007, but was slightly delayed until 2009.


http://rail.hobidas.com/blog/natori/
The first unit sits at JR’s Zushi Station on the Yokosuka Line. Special track at this station connects the JR network with Tōkyū Car Company’s Yokohama Factory. The exterior destination signs at the train ends and on car sides are full-color LED.

Luggage storage area. There are dial locks, but I honestly don’t know how they’re supposed to work.

The locks are simple to operate. You input a four digit code of your choice on the right, and then turn the dial to the left to "lock". To open, repeat the process, and turn the dial to "open". My apartment mailbox has the same system.

New Keisei Skyliner revealed

It got its press introduction today:









Bolsterless bogies- a first for Keisei. This type is banned on Keikyu Lines, so the trainset was delivered completely by JR to its final destination(using temporarily fitted narrow gauge bogies, of course).

Here is the video which shows how it works (at about 2:06 in the clip). The rest of the report is good too (new Skyliner stuff):

New Japan train to make Tokyo airport run in 36 minutes
21 May 2009
Agence France Presse

A sleek new high-speed train will from next year cut the travel time between Tokyo and Narita International Airport to 36 minutes, down from the current 51 minutes, the rail company said Thursday.

The Skyliner, in metallic blue and white, was designed by Japanese fashion leader Kansai Yamamoto. It will travel at speeds of up to 160 kilometres (99 miles) per hour on the 64-kilometre route, the company said.

The train, set to start operations some time in 2010, will connect Nippori Station near Ueno in northern Tokyo with the Terminal 2 building at Narita Airport, Keisei Electric Railway said.

Thanks, I can see how the lock pops out... But to be honest, I think the locks look out of place with the rest of the E259 interior.

I'm liking the new Skyliner luggage areas much better. I think the rest of the Skyliner interior (restrooms, lounges, and all) looks better, too.

Tōkyō rail companies respond to swine flu threat
http://sankei.jp.msn.com/life/body/0...0912010-n1.htm

Quote:
After confirmation of the first case of swine flu in Greater Tōkyō, railway operators were forced to respond, with station staff wearing masks from the start of service on April 21. However, the two female students who were diagnosed with the virus were already wearing masks on their way back home from the United States, and had ventured outside their homes only occasionally. As a result, railway companies say their response to the threat is naturally limited and are not currently considering policies such as mandating that all passengers wear masks.

The two students from Senzoku Academy in Kawasaki City had returned on April 19 after participating in a Model United Nations assembly held in New York City. One of the students took an express bus from Narita Airport to Tama Center Station in Tama City, Tōkyō, where she transferred to Keiō Sagamihara Line and JR Yokohama Line trains to reach her home in Hachiōji City.

Since the student was wearing a mask during this time, Keiō Electric Railway and JR East say the virus would not have spread. The two operators say they will do their best to maintain passenger capacity on their lines and would not consider countermeasures such as a reduction in train service.

However, Keiō Electric Railway has ordered all station staff and train operators to wear masks. The company has also begun displaying posters at faregates urging passengers to wear masks when going outside; observe etiquette and consider other passengers when coughing or sneezing; wash hands and gargle regularly; and visit the doctor when symptoms such as fever arise.

As part of its strategy to limit the spread of the virus, JR East has ordered station staff in the Hachiōji area to wear masks, and has urged passengers to do the same through poster displays and announcements inside trains.

The other student who was confirmed with the swine flu virus took an express bus from Narita Airport to Tama Plaza Station in Yokohama, where she transferred to the Tōkyū Den’en Toshi Line to reach her home in Kawasaki City.

In response, Tōkyū Corporation ordered employees at all stations across its network to wear masks beginning at the start of service on April 21, but stated its level of response at this time is limited. Tōkyū says it will watch the situation carefully, but would not yet take special action with regard to passengers.

JR East: World’s first “thinking” trains for an urban railway system
http://sankei.jp.msn.com/life/trend/...0922004-n1.htm

Quote:
JR East has developed a new signal system that controls trains by obtaining their position via wireless communications and maintaining the appropriate distance with the train in front. The system will be introduced in the spring of 2011 on the Higashi-Shiogama - Aoba-dōri (approx. 17 km) portion of the Senseki Line in Miyagi Prefecture. JR East has stated that it also plans on introducing the system to its network of trains in the Tōkyō area.

While a similar system is already in use on Hong Kong’s Disneyland Resort Line, JR East’s efforts would mark the first time the technology has been used in urban railway systems.

The new system is known as ATACS. Each train receives a unique ID and calculates its current position based on signs located on the ground. The train sends its position via two-way wireless communications to trackside facilities and receives information about the positions of other trains. Each train will be equipped with computers containing information about the line such as curves. Based on its distance from the train in front, the train will automatically calculate the appropriate speed and appropriate timing for brake application. The system will also make it possible to operate trains at higher frequencies than currently.

Nankai announces new planning department
http://www.nankai.co.jp/company/news/pdf/090518.pdf

On May 18, Nankai Electric Railway announced changes in its organizational structure to take effect June 26. Of particular interest is the establishment of a new department:

Quote:
Establishment of the “Urban Transport Planning Department”
An “Urban Transport Planning Department” will be established within the Management Policy Office to specifically handle various issues related to urban transport planning (including the Naniwasuji Line proposal and Sakai City’s LRT project), in order to centralize the management of transportation improvements in urban areas (which has substantial effects on our company’s projects) and facilitate discussions with the national government, local jurisdictions, and other related agencies and private entities.
Perhaps this came out of the railway summit they had in Ōsaka a few weeks back.

Cost for Oyama City Central Passage Project released to public
http://www.tokyo-np.co.jp/article/to...002000114.html

Quote:
The estimated cost for Oyama City’s Central Passage Improvement Project, which would unite the east and west sides of JR East’s Oyama Station, was officially released to the public on April 19. The estimated cost is approximately ¥3.8 billion, with Oyama City aiming for a 2012 completion.

JR East, which had been contracted do preliminary design, notified the city. The project would connect the East Exit and West Exit of the station with a new central passage (90 m long by 10 m wide) and replace the existing faregates at the East Exit and West Exit with a single “Central Exit” located in the middle of the new passage.

The project is being carried out as a federal-aid project, with about half of the ¥3.8 billion coming from aid money, plus an additional ¥100 million compensation related to relocation of portions of the station building. Starting in July, JR East will begin detailed design, with construction beginning next year and project completion in two-and-a-half years.

While there is hope that the new passage will improve convenience and revitalize the central city area by reconnecting the east and west exits currently separated by the tracks, the estimated project cost has up until now been kept secret, with members of the city council and public criticizing the project for not providing a cost-benefit assessment.
Oyama Station is served by Tōhoku Line trains (to Utsunomiya in the north, Ōmiya and Tōkyō in the south), plus regional services (Mito Line, Ryōmō Line) and the Tōhoku Shinkansen. Daily station entries (2007) are 21,440.

Sōtetsu Main Line grade-separation: Hoshikawa - Tennōchō

Websites:
http://www.sotetsu.co.jp/train/crossover/ (Sōtetsu)
Construction start: 2002
Construction end: 2012

Benefits:
  • Removal of nine at-grade crossings, improving road and train safety and eliminating accidents
  • Reduced traffic congestion in central Hodogaya Ward, Yokohama
  • Unification of neighborhoods originally separated by train line
This project involves the following elements:
  • Elevation of 1.8 km of the Sagami Railway (Sōtetsu) Main Line between Hoshikawa and Tennōchō, grade-separating seven existing crossings and completely eliminating two crossings.
  • Elevation of Hoshikawa Station and reconfiguration of Tennōchō from side-platform layout to island-platform layout, allowing escalators and elevators to be centrally-located.
  • Improvements to frontage roads and crossroads in the area and construction of a station plaza outside Hoshikawa Station (being undertaken by Yokohama City).

Tennōchō Station serves 29,394 entries and exits daily, while Hoshikawa Station serves 26,280 entries and exits daily. With grade-separation, pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle access to YBP and the surrounding neighborhood will improve.

Recent cab view of an express train from Futamatagawa to Yokohama. The train makes no stops in between, but you can see the construction as the train approaches Hoshikawa Station starting at 6:20. At Hoshikawa Station, the train enters the temporary inbound platform as construction proceeds in the middle at the location of the original inbound platform, now demolished. There are people taking pictures of the train at various stations because it is an older 5000-series train (constructed 1972) which has since been retired.

  • The proposed Sōtetsu through-services with JR and Tōkyū would break off from the Main Line at Nishiya Station, which is further north. At the heaviest point of the main line (near Futamatagawa Station, the junction of the Main Line and Izumino Line), frequency is already 27 trains per hour during the morning rush hour, all bound for Yokohama Station. The proposed through-services would likely result in the diversion of at least a few of these trains at Nishiya Station onto the new line and require some changes to scheduling to preserve existing service between Nishiya and Yokohama Stations.
