This is a 789 series EMU that has been sitting on a siding since March. Why has JR Hokkaido been deadlining these useful trains? Because of their new Hokkaido shinkansen. Personally, I'm not especially happy about it because it ended four or five trains and some stations, too.This is a Hakodate Liner sitting at Hakodate Station.
At Goryokaku we spent an hour watching trains. These are all the trains we saw in an hour.This was another KiHa 40 local train that came by.
I was able to see the "joining" of two shinkansen, and I was very happy about that, so I filmed this. You can actually hear a shinkansen horn as it couples up to the H5.
This is our 701 series local train that we took to Hiraizumi.
On the Tohoku Line to Hiraizumi I took videos of the trains that we passed between Morioka and Hiraizumi.
And this is our 701 series train leaving Hiraizumi station.
