Trying to catch up to the 350 km/h trains next door?

>>1311284

By the end of this year this is what JR Central should have in terms of rolling stock for the N700 series

X Set - 80 (X0 aka the non-revenue service set has been officially removed from service)
G Set - 51

Considering that they will be building N700S sets starting next year (40 will be built by 2022) I wonder if they will retire some of the older N700 sets

>>1312122

They'll never catch up to any of the neighbouring countries in terms of operating speed since Tokaido Shinkansen has way too many tight curves for that to happen
>>
>>1312122
the piss-poor reliability of chinese built trains means they only really run one or two lines at that speed or else half the fleet would be out of service
>>
>>1312128
>Tokaido Shinkansen
>tight curves
Choose one.

Tighter than other HSR, absolutely, but not remotely near what usually would constitute a "tight curve".
Remember, radii can go down as long as the maximum speed goes down as well.
>>
>>1312122
Tell me when they are tilting.
Literally not an argument:
1. They aren't mindless drones trying to chase top speed pointlessly.
2. This is for Tokaido Shinkansen operation.
3. They are only trying to sell to overseas with N700S's 360km/h trial. The US and Taiwan aren't going to buy PRC HSR rolling stock.

Nah, it's mainly for displaying real time changes to train departure time due to delay and disruption, and especially when there are big incident that cause severe delays. Even if situation become worse enough for them to specially list the situation in official app and website, they usually won't have as much details as the display in the station. Not to mention in times when station staff simply choose to put a paper note on the display monitor. Would be nice of train companies online information can sync with whatever station staffs input into the departure time board and also make it allow free form input to conveniently display whatever information station staffs want it to display

Are there instances of old Shinkansen sets being exported? I know certain older series were demoted to all-stops service after being replaced, but it seems all the old sets were simply broken up when no longer in use, perhaps out of national pride.

>>1315583

Nope, Ekikara was more of an aggregate site of all the train stations' schedules in Japan but it doesn't take any real time changes into consideration

>>1315598

None of the old Shinkansen sets have ever been exported as far as I know, regardless of MUH PRIDE I don't think exporting those after all those years / mileage on them would be a good idea regardless

>>
>>1318206

Can't run existing NFC with farfield easily due to tag density (every card/phone in field radius will respond, and separating is a major pain or impossible). There are reasons why only active tags are used for such places (active protocol control, negotiation, greater bandwidth).

But, if you retired the existing NFC card fleet, and assumed powered/active tags (so phone or those new NFC cards with the ginourmous capacitor in the center of the coil), maybe.

But it looks like the government wants active facial recognition, so there's no escape.

I'd say that's most because you don't see "their" aesthetics in real-life.
It's different from the Western way of designing shit.

Why is the Shinkansen so ridiculously expensive compared to other trains?

It's not that much more expensive than limited expresses.
>>
>>1329100
The difference isn't that high IIRC (as long as you aren't comparing it to Seishun 18).
The problem is rather that in Japan rail is expensive to begin with.
You get something worth that money in return, though, so no one is complaining.

I doubt you'll find a place in the West where the base fare per kilometer is remotely as high as in Japan.
If it wasn't for the JapanRailPass, I'm not sure I'd primarily rely on rail when traveling Japan.
Fucking planes are cheaper.

JR Hokkaido to install noise barrier for JPY12B to raise Hokkaido section of Shinkansen top speed to 320km/h.

JR East Chuo Line Rapid and Ome Line interrunning section toilets to be introduced on in-bound Car 4 end from May 27.
>>
JR Hokkaido increasing fares starting October this year. Note that this isn't just because the consumption tax is increasing but also because the company is trying to increase revenue as well. Pretty big impact for shorter distance tickets since the fare increase is proportionally bigger (1~3km, price increases from 170 to 200 yen; 7~10km, 220 to 290 yen; 11~15km, 260 to 340 yen). However, they are implementing special fare rules for tickets for journeys less than 100km between certain stations to remain competitive with alternate modes of transportation. The extra charge for the airport branch of the Chitose line is going to drop from 140 yen to 20 yen. All fare changes are subject to approval by MLIT and are not final.

More of a Sobu corridor problem. Will be alleviated by Sobu-Keiyo through line and Keiyo Line common section quadrupling, with some relief further inwards from Yurakucho Line Tokyo Line 8-11 branch extension.
For some historical background:
Before Narita Shinkansen failed, there was a Keiyo-Yurakucho line through service concept floating around.
Toei Shinjuku Line was devised to extend towards Hokuso Line had Chiba New Town didn't collapse, although how much this would divert Musashino and Noda lines may be doubious.
Noda Line had a Tozai Line interrunning branch studied.

What is with the crazy overcrowding on some Japanese trains? How do you even get off in amongst so many people?
>>
>>1333048
Japs are really good at pushing on the train. I got shoved into a train somewhere in Tokyo before, but it was a nice experience. Everyone was very gentle.

People in Taiwan don't do that. Even when there are open gangways, the middles and ends of the carriages away from the doors will be empty because people are afraid that they won't be able to get off at their stop.

I think the difference is that in Japan people are just more aware of their surroundings and will let people off if they realize someone wants to move. People will step out of the carriage at stops for others to get off. It's very cordial.
>>
>>1333048
>What is with the crazy overcrowding on some Japanese trains?
That's getting a bit outdated. Against the decade-old backdrop of reurbanization/recentralization and reducing commute distance, some lines has been quadrupled (eg Odakyu) or diverted (eg Ueno-Tokyo Line, which also allowed an increase in frequency), and there's aging population with reducing birth rate to come. Crowdedness is at its lowest level, and decreasing in general.
Take your pic's Joban Rapid Line as an example, it's at 157% (32th in Tokyo) in 2017, dropped 10%pt every 5 years in the past decade. Joban Local Line is at slightly lower levels too. The former has been benefited by Ueno-Tokyo Line, and the latter will have the CBTC-Radio moving block ATACS installed in the near future. Long term, the parallel Tsukuba Express line is eventually going to be extended to Tokyo, Ginza, and the Seafront. It, and he feeder Musashino and Noda Line will be diverted by Sobu-Keiyo-Rinkai Line interconnection and Yurakucho-Hanzonmon Line extension >>1333027.

The standard is apparenty 0.35m^2/pax=2.86pax/m^3, very comfortable and relaxed. The global standard is 3~4pax/m^2, with crush load at 4~6pax/m^2, safety limit at >=7pax/m^2.

* Don't forget this is for Japanese. A very high expectation in ride quality even for Asians when you consider average crowdedness rate is at 120~130% in Nagoya and Osaka. Tokyo aims for <150% overall, and <180% as a bar to individual lines.

Have asked 6 people from the area so far, but if it actually was a regular thing even a single person from Tokyo denying it should not happen, and all of them have done it so far.
It obviously does happen - otherwise those videos wouldn't exist -, but it's probably by far not as prevalent as many of us make it out to be.
Usually being able to sit down doesn't appear to be a major plus in their eyes anyway.
They are REALLY annoyed about railway in the West. Punctuality and frequency seem ridiculously bad to them. They even badmouth lines that I'd perceive as comparatively good. Which is great, I love Japanese stating their actual opinion instead of attempting to keep a straight face, while saying shit they don't actually think.
>>
>>1333594
All I'm trying to say is that the way you are making your argument is completely flawed.
You're practically dismissing the problem of overcrowding with "well I spoke to some people and they said it doesn't happen".
You aren't accounting for all like variables, like location (which I already mentioned) and what time they travel.
>>
>>1333597
I'm not dismissing it, I'm saying it's probably not as big of a problem as we make it out to be.
It is definitely a problem, but probably limited to extremely well-defined line sections and time periods. It's not something you'll certainly experience, if you ride a train in Tokyo in the morning rush hour.
I can also speak from experience on that. Riding the Yamanote and Chuo Line on a workday morning with luggage isn't much of a problem. Obviously wouldn't recommend it, though. Avoid it, if you can, or use a Ltd.Exp., if available, but if it cannot be avoided, it should work out. At least it did for me.

>100 million USD to save 5 minutes
why tho
>>
>>1334224
100 Million USD is still just a minor percent of the total project cost.
And you need to add speed improvement from different sections together in order to reach a significant overall speed increase. JR East have also planned various other speed increase projects along the Tohoku Shinkansen, and then there's also plan to increase the Seikan tunnel speed, all these factors combined together would mean the trip time from Tokyo to Sapporo can be reduced to near 4.5 hours mark, which could be somewhat competitive given the New Chitose airport is pretty far away from Sapporo. JR Hokkaido estimate is that if all these projects can be done then the volume of passengers it can attract on the Tokyo-Sapporo route can be three folded, which could result in 14 Billion Yen additional revenue.
Also, 320km/h between Shin Hakodate Hokuto and Sapporo will also put the journey time of nonstop trains between the two cities down to within 1-hour mark, which they hoped to use this travel tine to dominate the market entirely.

From the last thread about how in-train sales were being scaled back in JR East on various services, it will apply to Kagayaki / Hakutaka as well starting on July 1st this year. In addition JR East will no longer sell hot coffee in all JR East limited express / Shinkansen services where in-train sales are still available.

>no longer sell hot coffee
What the flying fuck?
Even otherwise shitty railway companies like Deutsche Bahn still do that.
Considering they aren't stopping selling most of the rest, why specifically coffee?
Coffee seems like the one thing I'd prefer freshly made, instead of bought at the station.

This article speculates that it's because to cut costs. Coffee is relatively labor-intesive to serve compared to other products. By cutting out coffee, they can have the attendants perform some duties performed by conductors and have fewer conductors per train.

My guess is,
Because those weaker railways around the globe need to attract more passengers and also have these extra amenity that are higher yield than their lower ticket price to partially offset their cost. While railway ticket cost in Japan relative to the standard of living there is already high enough, it make more sense for them to concentrate on the passenger carrying business

From the article there are a few interesting notes about the Haneda Access Line

- There are no plans for any new stations between Shinbashi and the one in Haneda Airport (15km)
- The section between the Tokyo Freight Terminal and Haneda Airport (5km) will be fully underground with the deepest point being 48m deep
- The station will be located between the two domestic terminals, and the platform in the Haneda Airport will be 311m long which will be enough for 15-car sets.
- Each hour will have 4 services each way (15 minutes), which means a total of 144 trains a day (service runs at 18 hours per day) with no plans for express services yet.
>>
>>1339491
>Station and platform shops are more extensive in Japan.
Actually, not really. Stations over here got largely turned into shopping malls in order to increase revenue.
As far as food and drinks go, you get absolutely everything. Including coffee at Starbucks.
There are even stations with a fucking full-size LIDL in them.
>>
>>1339511
I've been to Mt. Aso last year. The ropeway is pretty fucked, especially the top station. Walking up from the base station doesn't take too long, though. Plus you can also just drive up with your car now.

Sure, way less often than in Japan, but stores and vending machines like that also exist on a large scale.
>How often are those food and drinks brought onto the train?
All the fucking time. Recently even more so, since the "Bordrestaurant" has been massively downgraded across all trains, while prices have disproportionately risen.
Back when I was a child, there were trains with a fucking McDonald's on board. That was awesome.
