[JR] Local and Limited Express trains 1

Postby Sir Pompously » Mon Jan 28, 2013 5:54 pm

A few photos from my recent journey to Japan of Local (Rapid, Special Rapid etc) and Limited Express trains in Honshu and Hokkaido.

Image
A JR West 475 series EMU is seen at Toyama Station. Love the large headlights on these!

Image
A JR East 701 series EMU is seen passing through Ugo-Sakai on the standard gauge. These special 701 series trains run from Omagari to Morioka on the Tazawako line, and they share the line with the E3 series "Shinkansen" trains used on Komachi services

Image
Two JR Hokkaido KiHa 40 series diesel rail cars are seen at Hakodate station

Image
The best I could do for a last minute photo of this JR Hokkaido 789 series EMU heading to Shin-Aomori passing through Goryokaku station after a decent snow fall

Image
A JR Hokkaido KiHa 40 diesel railcar arrives into Goryokaku station. When we arrived you could see the platform, shortly after we arrived it snowed!

Image
A JR Hokkaido 281 series DMU is seen heading to Sapporo at Goryokaku station

Image
A KiHa 48 (and two others in two) DMU in JR East Furusato livery is seen arriving into Yotsugoya. This train is based at Sendai depot and is a "Joyful train" meaning it is used on special runs and is decorated inside and out.

Image
A JR East 701 Series EMU is seen arriving into Yotsugoya station

Image
What I believe is a 415 Series EMU is seen arriving at Kosugi. Luckily my train was waiting here for a few minutes whilst a Thunderbird passed by, allowing me enough time to get this shot!

Image
A JR East 115 Series EMU is seen just having left Oshikiri, surrounded by snow. It was a fun walk not having had to walk in snow before, I kept sinking and hoping that the raised mound I was walking on was actually a road covered in snow (The closed level crossing halfway along gave me some hope)!

I am amazed at the number of those 115/415/475 series, and lookalikes, trains still running. I first saw them back in 1985 and thought they looked quite dated then.

Sensational pics. Especially love the night shot at Hakodate. Hope you stayed warm through that shoot!

Fascinating stuff, I always thought everything was modern in Japan

I guess I was wrong!

Half the fun of travelling in Japan is finding all the old stuff still running.
