A 7000 series Yurakucho subway line EMU approaches Fujimino station on the
Tobu Tojo Line with a southbound through-running service from Kawagoeshi to
Shinkiba. The Tokyo subway operator TRTA (commonly known as "Eidan" in
Japanese) changed its name to Tokyo Metro on 1st April 2004, and the new "M"
logo is visible on the front of this train, replacing the previous "S" logo.

An HSOR-100 single-car DMU belonging to the newly-created Hisatsu Orange
Railway is seen near Shin-Yatsushiro. This third-sector operator took over
the former JR Kagoshima Main Line between Yatsushiro and Sendai from March
2004 following the opening of the Kyushu Shinkansen.
