On December 5 the Odakyu Electric Railway in Japan revealed its new series 70,000 Graceful Super Express trains for the Romancecar limited express service.

 

 

The services will start from March 2018 and will run on the Odakyu Odawara line between the Shinjuku station in Tokya, Odawara, Enoshima, Tama New Town and Hakone.

 

 

Nippon Sharyo will supply two of the seven-car trains and the model will seat 400 passengers in each 142m-long train.

 

 

There will be seats for 400 passengers in 142m –long train and there will be 16-seat observation saloon having panoramic 1m –high windows so that the passengers can have a full view of the landscape.

 

 

There will be electro-hydraulic full-active suspension to reduce side vibration along with luggage racks and under-seat storage that is designed to fit flight carry-on sized bags for those visiting the airport.

 

 

They have used Braille along with easier wheelchair access proposed as part of the design.

 

 

The two trains will be costing around ¥4bn (£26m).

 

 

The Russian government has proposed an 8,400 mile route that connects London to Tokyo by train and the project will see a construction of 28-mile bridge across the East Sea.

 

 

The travellers will be taken to Russia before starting off in Japan and then concluding in Wakkanai, Japan.
