JR East Utsunomiya & Nikko Lines 205 Series Farewell

The 205-600 series EMU's used by JR East's Utsunomiya & Nikko Lines will be withdrawn from service as part of this month's timetable changes, to be replaced by new E131 series rolling stock.

This will leave only the JR Tsurumi & Senseki Lines operating the 205 series stock, as well as the 3rd sector Fujikyuko Line.
