THE PARADISE OF FORMER TOKYU EMUS



Traveling to Kumaagaya on Chichibu Railway's 7800 series EMU which was converted from the Tokyu 8090 series.

Arrived at Kumagaya and found more former Tokyu 8090 series trains which were used on the Oimachi Line. Once they served posh towns like Jiyugaoka, but now are operated on the single-tracked regional route that runs into a mountainous area.
熊谷に着いたら、そこにも元8090系が。かつて大井町線で使われていた車両とのこと。自由が丘などの小洒落た街を走っていた電車たちが、今では山に囲まれた場所へ向かう、単線の地方路線を支えている。
