Tokyo Trainspotting Guide


#1

I’ve taken lots of photographs of trains across metropolitan Tokyo (and Yokohama). :relaxed:
I was able to show a bunch of them to the Central Electric Railfans’ Association in May 2012. The entire show, including the script, is on-line at these upload hosts. The file is 24.23 MB. You need only download from one of them.

To give more stations where to shoot, I endorse: Yoyogi-Uehara - You can lens J.R., Tokyo Metro, and Odakyu consists here, including its RomanceCar trains. Kotake-Mukaihara - This is a junction station on the Fukutoshin Line, but it does not have a lot of passengers who might be in your way. Consists from Tobu, Seibu, Tokyo Metro, Tokyu, and Minatomirai can all be lensed here. Lastly, the overpass which leads to Keikyu’s Kanagawa station (just north of Yokohama sta.) is a good place to get overhead shots of any number of J.R. equipment as well as Keikyu’s, and this is in a unpaid area.

It has been five years since I presented my show to the Central Electric Railfans’ Association. It was about trains in Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan. I publicized it using the title, “I Shot J. R. (& Keikyu, Keio, Odakyu, et alia)”; which was a twist on the then-recent revival of the 1980s television show “Dallas”, and its protagonist | antagonist J. R. Ewing.
This was seemingly a bit too much for Tony Coppoletta, who was the emcee of C.E.R.A. programs in 2012. He publicized it as “Trains of Tokyo and Yokohama”. Whatever.
I lost a substantial portion of my audience when the ‘closing event’ of Chicago Craft Beer Week occurred at the same time on the same evening (Friday) (even though the calendar showed CCBW extending through to Sunday). (I also would have wanted to attend that ‘closing event’.) But it was a good show. To illustrate that, I have now uploaded all the photographs I showed that night, and included the script in which I described the photographs. Some of these photographs can no longer be replicated. (The grade crossing in Shimo-Kitazawa has been eliminated.)
The file has gone off-line a few times. After an incident at December 2014’s C.E.R.A. show, in which we had a delay due to technical problems; I was actually asked if there was something I could show while we were trying to fix it. My answer was ‘no’, because I didn’t have that USB flash drive with me then. [We did fix it.]
We had an internet connection. I remembered uploading this. When I went to the site of the last uploader I had utilized, the file had rinsed off.
So I decided to upload it again just in case we had another technical snag.
The file is 24.23 MB.
