Recommended Posts

Test rail run!

 

Hurray.

 

来年春に開業する北陸新幹線のレール締結式が24日、富山市のJR富山駅で行われた。

 これにより、東京―金沢間454キロの線路がつながった。

 富山県の石井隆一知事ら関係者が掛け声を合わせ、最後のボルト計58本を締めてレールを固定した。職員が点検した後、「祝」と書かれたプレートと日の丸を掲げた資材運搬用車両が、つながったレールの上を通過し、締結を祝った。

 北陸新幹線は1989年に着工し、97年に東京―長野間で営業を開始。来年春は長野―金沢間が新たに開業する。東京―金沢間を約2時間半で結ぶ見通し。

 石井知事は「開業により富山と首都圏はお隣になる。北陸信越地方の一層の活性化に取り組みたい」と語った。

Out of curiosity, how did it end up being selected? Poll had no bearing?     Am I the only one who wants to read that as "Myoko Koden"?

I regularly travelled 4 hrs just to get to yuzawa so 1 extra hour to go to Myoko area would be fine. The swing wouldn't be the shink, but the time from station to resort....which is why I rarely went

I don't think Tokyo is full of people who have lots of money to go to on extra trips just because an hour or two less travelling will be involved.

Starting operation next spring? Too bad they couldn't do it in time for ski season.

Trying to start a new operation through the winter isnt such a good idea, there are always teething problems and the snow would just make it worse.
