    Hi all, could any of you maybe have a try at making a 583 series EMU?

    Maybe attach on a mesh to the top of Kenichiros/Hirochis Series 485s? It's OK if you can't do it.

    New rolling stock: Osaka Municipal Subway 60 Series, one of the lesser-known Japanese subway trains.



    The 60 series was introduced in 1969, with the opening of the first section (Tenjinbashi-Rokuchome to Dobutsuen-Mae) of the Sakaisuji Line (Line No.6) of the Osaka Municipal Subway, wich was to be an "urban penetration" extension of the Hankyu Senri Line wich at the time served the Osaka Expo'70 grounds (with a temporary stop between Minami-Senri and Kita-Senri station) and also Senri New Town, thus inter-running services with Hankyu were planned from the start (up to Kita-Senri on the Senri Line and up to Takatsuki on the Hankyu Kyoto Line) so the Sakaisuji Line was to be a catenary-fed 1435mm-gauge line compatible with Hankyu's trains.

    The 60 series was based on the third-rail lines all-stainless steel 30 series, wich were designed in 1967 and at the time were put in service as fast as possible to replace all the older rolling stock on the other lines (especially line No.1-Midosuji Line wich at the time had most of its trains dating from pre-war times, and it was to be the main railway line serving the Expo grounds), thus the 30 and 60 series were designed to be as easy and as fast to be built as possible, with all trains sharing the same unpainted stainless steel body, doors, control stands, seats and manufacture plates (in fact they all read "built in october" depsite most of the production taking place in november).
    Depsite all the similarities, the 60 series also had distinctive fetaures: the top-mounted headlight, akin to all Hankyu trains at the time and the recessed driver windows (a fetaure that inspired the 9000 series of Odakyu railway).
    Built in only two months, a total of 90 vehicles were made by four different manufacturers: Kawasaki Heavy Industries (formations 1-3), Nippon Sharyo (formations 4-8), Kisha Seizo (formations 9-14) and Hitachi (formations 15-18).

    The 60 series entered service in 5-car sets, with all-stainless bodies except the lower part of the front units wich was painted bright red due to visibility concerns. Trains running special "Expo'70 Rapid" services had two circular headmarks on both sides of the front.

    When the Expo ended, all the stainless Osaka subway rolling stock started recieving bodyside coloured lines indicating the line servded, to avoid mistaking trains.
    The 60 series got red bodysides, wich lasted little as the Midosuji Line trains were also red, so by 1978, the 60 series color was changed from red to their distinctive reddish-brown wich they carried until their retirement. At the same time they were reformed in 6-car sets.

    By the late 1980s, the rushed design and lack of passenger comfort (compared to the high-end Hankyu trains, wich all had air conditioning) of the 60 series became evident, so an alternative started taking form.

    The 66 series was introduced in 1993 (and it's still in service), and it was the exact opposite of the 60 series: comfortable, good-looking and air-conditioned from the start. It was built in 8-car sets, and it used GTO-VVVF inverters.

    Also in 1993, the 60 series trains were reformed into 9 8-car sets (01, 02, 03, 04, 06, 07, 11, 12, 14), with air conditioners being retrofitted on formations 01, 02, 03, 11 and 12.
    The remaining cars not inserted into an 8-car set were scrapped in 1993 along the whole formation No.5 wich was followed by formations 04, 06, 07 and 14 in 1994.

    The remaining air-conditioned formations were retired by 2003, with the last run of a 60 series set on the 7th of November.

    All the veichles were scrapped except unit 6014 wich was restored to it's original 1969 style and is preserved at Morinomiya depot.

    Trivia #1

    While the Hankyu Lines are legally classified as railways, Osaka Subway lines are classified as tramways (in fact the full name for the Sakaisuji Line is
    "Osaka City Rapid Electric Tramway Line No.6 - Sakaisuji Line", thus Sakaisuji Line trains are the only ones in Japan that swich daily from a railway to a "tramway" (de-facto railway but de-jure tramway, this is rather a legal cavil as it does not concern technical matters and standard railway rules apply to all Osaka subway lines).

    Trivia #2

    Depsite being designed with a maximium speed of 100Km/h, the 60 series daily ran at 110Km/h on the Hankyu Kyoto Line without any trouble.

    Trivia #3

    In the summers months from the mid to late 1980s these trains (wich at the time still had no air-condition) became so uncomfortable, that passengers on both the Sakaisuji Subway and Hankyu Lines would wait for an air-conditioned Hankyu train to come, rather than boarding a 60 series.

    The consist avaibles are:

    - "time of debut", 5-car set
    - "time of debut with Expo'70 headmarks", 5-car set
    - "red body sides", 5-car set
    - "brown body sides", 6-car set
    - "brown body sides with AC" - 8-car set

    the .rar file contains three .CDPs (one for the rolling stock, one for the consists and one for the dependencies) plus the screenshot above.

    The missing Kuid is the "[TC1P] (Red sides)". Check if it gives you problems.




    Also, new rolling stock: Osaka Municipal Subway 30 Series.



    As mentioned above, the 30 series was introduced in 1967 to replace or displace all the pre-war and immediately post-war rolling stock on most of the third-rail powered lines (anything from the 100 series of 1933 up to the 1100 series of 1958) and to provide new trains for lines due to open (the Tanimachi Line and most of the Chuo Line. The Sennichimae Line, altough opened in 1969 was to be served by displaced rolling stock).
    One of the main deadlines was the Expo'70, wich was to be located to the north of the terminus of the Midosuji Line (the line was in fact extended by the Kita-Osaka-Kyuko railway).

    With such a great event coming, there were ongoing discussions in the Osaka Municipal Transportation Bureau about how to prepare in the best way: start the construction of new lines; keep old stock; purchase new stock altogheter; should the new stock use the standards of the old ones...
    The decision was left to Tsuruyoshi Imaoka, the then-chairman, wich said: "We ought to build 240 vehicles with 4 doors and 18m bodies, equipped with the lastest WS-ATC system (wich would be the one used in the TRTA Hibiya and Tozai Lines) and we should focus on Line No.1 (Midosuji Line), as it will be the main way to get to the Expo."

    The new rolling stock would have to be as cheap and as fast to be built as possible, altough with a few improvements compared to the older stock, such an 18m body with 4 doors compared to the 17 with 3 doors of the old stock and a cardan drive system in lieu of the old "nose-suspended" motors, so to contain costs, a standardized model was designed.

    In 1967 two trains appeard: the 7000 series with an aluminum body and the 8000 series with a stainless steel body. Altough using different materials, the two were substantially identical, with the same squared, simplicistic body (they also shared motors, bogeys, traction equipment, interiors, driving cabs, headlights...).
    Tests were highly successful and more sets of both type of trains were ordered: these would become the 30 series. By the time of the Expo, 224 vehicles were in service.

    After the Expo, the 30 series started recieving bodyside stripes indicating the line color, to avoid passengers mistaking trains: red for the Midosuji Line, green for the Chuo Line, blue for the Yotsubashi Line and purple for the Tanimachi Line.

    In 1973, new vehicles were put in service for the Tanimachi Line: the New 30 series.
    These were a largely improved version of the 30 series, they had more rounded roofs, more comfortable interiors and driving cabs and were predisposed for air conditioning.

    The old 30 series on the other hand, by the mid 1980s started to show their rushed design.
    The lack of air conditioning was one of the most notable problems of this stock, especially on the Midosuji Line, the crowdest line of the Subway.
    A plan to retrofit the stock with AC was shelved almost immediately due to the extremely high costs and complexity of having to completely rebuild the roofs of the carriages.

    The obsolescence of the 30 series became particularily evident compared to the newer 10 series (1979) and 20 series (1984), thus by 1990 new rolling stock was introduced: the New 20 series.
    The withdrawal process began in the mid-1980s and the first to be retired were the ones of the Midosuji Line in 1993, followed by the Chuo and Yotsubashi Line trains (both in 1995).

    Some Midosuji Line trains were also repainted in pink and transferred to the Sennichimae Line, where they ran briefly between 1991 an 1995.

    While alluminium trains were all retired by 1995, the more durable stainless steel trains were transferred to the Tanimachi Line, where they ran along air-conditioned retrofitted 30 series trains until 2013 (almost 20 years later compared to the other 30s), when they were replaced by the 30000 series.

    Two vehicles (both driving cars) were preserved: one stainless steel car from the Yotsubashi Line (No.3062, wich originally was No.7001) and one alluminuim car from the Chuo Line (No.3042, wich originally was No.3008) wich was later "re-painted" to the original 1970 aspect.
    Both are in working order, in fact, No.3062 ran a short distance during the 2013 Osaka Subway festival.
