Last month I spent a few minutes at 07:30 one morning at a crossing just south of Shinagawa station in Tokyo. In the 20 minutes I was there, I saw about 25 trains. Here are some of the variety to be seen there.
This is only the Keihin Kyuko private Ry. Also at Shinagawa station are the JR Yamanote, KeihinTohoku, Yokosuka, Tokaido and Shinkansen lines plus several Express trains; Narita Express, Odoriko, etc.

A 12-car Keihin Kyuko Ry. Train.


An 8-car Hokuso Ry. Train.


An 8-car Asakusa Subway Train.


A 12-car Keihin Kyuko Ry. Train.


A 12-car Keihin Kyuko Ry. Train.


An 8-car Keisei Ry. Train.

The equipment looks so new. Is there any old equipment (say, 1960's vintage) still running over there in Japan?

Nice sharp pics, by the way. Enjoyed 'em.

Thanks. There are lots of older streetcars in various cities and many rural lines are using old equipment - usually in top-notch shape.

Nice to see your photos over here as well Dick (Lucky 13 over on firepics.net). I love urban railroading and Japan certainly has plenty of that. Good to see photos from you on here again. Hopefully we will a little more often. :)

Thanks Tommy. Do you know my friend Curt Elie who lives in Silver Spring?

Great stuff Dick - glad to see your post. I'm just amazed at the variety of equipment over there. I've watched quite a bit of YouTube video on Japanese trains. The density of traffic in Tokyo is mind bending.
