Awesome photos. And my 日本語 says the name is “high eight rivers”- correct?

 Rilliant photos.
I particularly like that low level close up of the green and white shinkasen.
Thanks for sharing.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Correct, that's the literal translation; it's a made-up name taking elements from three significant stations on the Chuo Line in western Tokyo: Tachikawa, Hachiouji and Takao.

Random picture of some contemporary mainline commuter action, again making things look more complete than they are ;)

I believe the photographer was shooting with a telephoto lense from a position with a good view of the bridge ;)

Nah, my trusty compact-ish Panasonic in macro mode. Much better than a phone for these kinds of shots.
