On the subject of Doctor Yellow, a high-speed test train on Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen, we tried to estimate its operational schedules for this month of July 2019. Because the Doctor Yellow’s testing date has some biases, we can calculate and estimate the testing schedules with the biases of prior testing dates and days.
JR Kyushu will releas “Gachi Ticket” (ガチきっぷ) again for the coming summer travel. This ticket allows a one-way trip by Kyushu Shiknansen and local limited express train’s no-reservation seats. The travelers must be 18-24 year old.
For visitors to events in Fukuoka Area in July, August and September, a good special train Hikari 590 (Hakata 21:22 → Hiroshima 22:41) runs on Sanyo Shinkansen.
We supposed that the number of trains is increased on the day of much demand which is estimated by JR companies. Tokado, Sanyo and Kyushu Shinkansen’s most frequently serviced days during summer holidays (August 9 – 18, 2019) are August 9 for outbound trains and August 17 for inbound ones. Therefore the peak of crowding should be on these days.
