Tokyo Sakura Tram Open House
Author: Hiroshi

There was an open house at Tokyo Sakura Tram Arakawa facility today.
Here is one of Sakura Trams approaching "Arakawashako-Mae" stop.
To get this stop, I was at JR East Oku station, where I saw these engines (Class EF81) at the facility there.

Actually, I started the day from Yokohama station.
At Yokohama, I was able to see both Northbound and Southbound NEX.
Then I headed for Oku station by taking Tokaido and Utsunomiya (Tohoku) line train.

Walking toward the barn, I came to this stop, "Arakawa-Shako Mae."
One in the left is heading toward "Waseda" whilst the right one is heading for Minowabashi.
Almost every five minutes, you will see them running.

As I was approaching to the barn, I found these welcome boards.

When I got to the back of the barn, already many people were there.
Found a workshop for "young generation of maintenance engineers working on the rails."
And another welcome board.

Through the shop, I came to the front side of the barn, where I was able to see this car, #8501.
Qued up there to take the photos.
Through a door at the distance, I was able to spot class 7000 wearing the good ole Toden scheme.

Vintage look car number 9001 was used as a photo studio.
Kids were in turn, wearing driver's uniform and cap, getting into the driver's seat to take photos.

Thank you for stopping by.

Behind the barn, there is a traverser, which is still used to shuffling the cars in the barn.
Actually, these two cars were just pushing into the storage area.so that we were able to photo them.
