It is surprising the lack of response Japanese trains receive on this forum.
In my biased opinion, they are much more varied than freight trains.

Hi Dick,

Those shots are amazing. The rolling stock in the Tokyo area is incredibly diverse, and is unparalleled anywhere else in the world. I am surprised about the speed of the Keikyu Main Line trains south of Shinagawa. They go very fast.
