E4 Series Shinkansen

The E4 Series Shinkansen were the second series of bi-level Shinkansen high-speed trainsets to be built in Japan (the other being the E1 Series). They are built for commuter service on the Tohoku Shinkansen and Joetsu Shinkansen lines; 25 units have been built beginning in 1997. Two eight-car sets can be coupled together for extra capacity on busy routes.
