This month's selection from showcase the changing developments
in Shinkansen rolling stock with new E7's and overhauled E3's
commencing service earlier this year.

A brand new JR East E7 Series Set heads for Nagano from Tokyo Station whilst a 700
Series set awaits its departure for points west. These E7 sets will be joined by JR West's
own W7 sets when the Hokuriku Shinkansen opens beyond Nagano. 05/04/2014.

Contrasting nose profiles of older 700 Series Tokaido Shinkansen stock with new coupled
E5 & E6 sets for the Tohoku Shinkansen. Whilst the lines here are adjacent, there is no physical
connection between these 2 high speed systems. 05/04/2014.
