The driver cab of the Yamanote Line heading for Tokyo Station. Really like the place drivers have reserved for putting their pocket watches. When changing shift, they remove the pocket watch and the new driver puts his in the place. Nice touch of the old with new.
Although the Yamanote Line generally stays on the same track all the way round the loop, at the flick of a switch it could be diverted to other platforms.
The Yamanote Line train approaches the Station.
The Shinkansen takes a peak from behind the Tokaido Line. The old and the new. I can easily guess who will win this race.
Shinkansen N700 series heading to Tokyo Station. Very sleek long nose cone.
As the Shinkansen passes by, can you see the monorail coming in frmo Haneda Airport at the top of the picture?
The Tokaido Line train heading South towards the coast.
The Tokaido Line is going to celebrate its 120th year anniversary in July this year.
The 700 Shinkansen passes by the Minatoku sports center.
One of the many overhead electric lines.
The button is pressed by the rear cab driver for the Tohoku Line. Time for everyone to jump on before and head home.
Female drivers on the Yamanote and other train lines are not uncommon now. It is good to see a mix of different people being employed, male, female, old, young and maybe even some foreign in the future.
The Yamanote Line leaves the platform.
