Wow, that are 2 horrible maps, luckily there are better ones out there that you can actually read without getting lost on the map itself.

Both remind me of this:


Is there a reason for this sort of train design, with the cab on top?

They're great until they catch on fire. And then you'd wish that they were mounted the otherway around.

I suppose this "turret cab" design, owing to its elevation allows better views of the line ahead for the driver, slightly better protection for the driver in collisions, and (in some designs) allows gangway connections with other units without sacrificing cab space, as in the case of the new Narita Express E259 units:

I was actually surprised to still see the 500 in Tokyo last week, I thought they already were withdrawn from the Tokaido Nozomi services but apparently that will only happen next year.

Yes, I believe there are still 2 trains a day from Tokyo using the 500 series. After that, they will be used on Kodama services on the Sanyo Shinkansen from Shin Osaka.

I believe it the usage of J-A-P since it is still considered a degrading racist label by many people.

自動改札の作動状況をチェックするロボット開発

 JR西日本の子会社が、営業エリア内にある自動改札機などの作動状況を、始発前にチェックするシステムを開発した。主役はアームロボット。兵庫県尼崎市のビル1室に開設された無人の模擬駅で、早朝、自動改札機に切符を入れたり、IC乗車券「イコカ」をかざしたりして、各駅のネットワークに異状がないかを自動的に調べる。

 午前3時。ロボットのアームがイコカを棚から取り出し、自動改札機にかざす。「ピッ」という音。続いてアームは切符を改札機に入れ、出てきた切符を乗り越し精算機へ。画面のタッチパネルを素早く操作し、ネットワークに問題がないことを確かめた。

 尼崎の模擬駅と、最新の改札機が導入されている岡山や広島など約150駅をネットワークで直結。不具合を発見した場合、始発電車の運行前にメールなどで知らせる。

The thing that bugs me about all the new suburban trains is that they have a nice modern fiberglass end and its stuck on an ugly steel body. But thats just me

The HSRs, particually the 500, are quite nice though
