Odakyu's Excellent Express 3000, VSE 5000 and Super Express 60000


Odakyu Electric Railway's limited express luxury tourist services are operated between the south-west
of Tokyo, to mountain resorts such as Gotenba and Hakone, and beaches such as Numazu and Enoshima.
Service started in 1957 with the 3000 series SE train. It broke the world speed record (145 km/h)
for a narrow-gauge train. This record gave impetus for the design of the first Shinkansen, the zero series.
Some of the latest designs incorporate regenerative braking.




The 50000 series has regenerative brakes, and is equipped with air suspension, and tilts for passenger comfort.
As with most previous Romancecar trains, the train cars in the sets are articulated. The 50000 series trains
have the driver's cab located above the passenger saloon, giving passengers a view out of the front of the train.

The Odakyu 30000 series EXE was introduced in 1996. Most are equipped with vending machines on board,
and some also have cabin attendants. They are boxy and metallic bronze in color.
Odakyu 60000 series MSE: The 60000 series entered service in March 2008 and was the first limited
express train to be used on through services on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.
