Railsquid's Random Railway Photos
« on: December 02, 2018, 03:28:35 AM »
Had a bit of a bad dream last night, in which I was on a train with the creepiest trolley attendant ever.



I tried to escape from the rear of the train but it was being pursued by a wraith-like Shinkansen.



Finally I made it out of the train, but my hopes of boarding a normal one to get away were soon dashed.

There's something a bit fishy about that assertion.

It's certainly creating haddock with the thread (oh no - here we go again :doh:)

I won't rise to the bait.

Anyway, something slightly more conventional, namely from a bunch of photos I took in 2009 which I thought I'd lost, but just stumbled upon while looking for more creepy train pictures. These are from the Chichibu Railway somewhat to the north of Tokyo, which is one of those regional private Japanese railways hanging on by the skin of its teeth (and in this case freight revenue) which runs passenger services with trains other companies have thrown away. At the time my interest in trains was pretty dormant and I didn't have much idea what I was photographing, but it all seemed pretty vintage so I took a bunch of pictures anyway.

What I was delighted to find was this ex JR (JNR) 101-series, which is the first post-war "modern" EMU design, the last examples of which were eking out an existence on the Chichibu Railway (repainted into "classic" JNR colours at this point) until around 2010.



I have since acquired a representation of this set in model form:



so somewhat chuffed to confirm I actually travelled on it.
