JR EF641011FHM

JR EF64#37'Chocolate' OMY
Title:  JR EF64#37'Chocolate' OMY
Description:  This was the highlight of my 3 days watching JR trains...This EF 64, #37, is an early production version built between 1965 and {likely} 1970. This loco was painted brown in 2003 to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the opening of JR's Chuo Mainline [Central Main] between Kofu and Enzan. It is now part of the 'preserved' fleet and used for charter and engineering runs. In this photo I have lightened the brown some in order to bring out the details on the cab end.

JR EF64#37s2OMY
Title:  JR EF64#37s2OMY
Description:  The full frame, natural color version of #37...[it seems almost disrespectful to say but...] akin to a giant electrfied hershey bar!! -Neat thing was, I had a sense when something special was comin' down the pike, as a small group of local railfans would gather on the appropiate track and wait for the prize..and furthermore, it seems they were most all connected to some kind of app in thier phone which will tell them what train,time,and power will be on the movement of interest!! [How cool is that!!!]. Upon inquiry of the fan next to me, i was told this one has been named 'Chocolate'..and obviously well loved!!

JR EF64#37s3OMY
Title:  JR EF64#37s3OMY
Description:  Parting shot of #37 in natural color. As a light move, she came into track 6 in a dignified manner and pulled up to the far end of the platform for a personnel change [or signal?] and then quickly went on. Later series of '64's did away with the cab vent slots above the marker lights. In all, I was very honoured to see such a fine lady!!
