Business environment and management strategy

JR West has its own railway networkShinkansen,Kinki OfConventional line(Urban network), Hokuriku region, Chugoku region, etc.[3].

Of the Kinki region, JapanThree major metropolitan areasPositioned as one ofKeihanshinKnown as “private railway kingdom” in district transportationKinki Nippon Railway,Hankyu Corporation,Hanshin Electric Railway,Sanyo Electric Railway,Nankai Electric Railway,Keihan Electric RailwayAnd many morePrivate railwayWhile JR West is in a competitive relationship with these private railway companies, they are segregated according to the distance used and the destination.Transfer transportation,Free ticket, Etc., at private railway companiesICOCA・ ICOCACommuter PassThere is a cooperative relationship with the release of.山陽新幹線における都市間輸送ではIn intercity transportation on the Sanyo ShinkansenaircraftIs in a competitive relationship with.Yamanote LineJR East, which has a conventional line network in the metropolitan area used by an enormous number of commuter and school attendantsDollar box lineIsTokaido ShinkansenTo holdTokai passenger railwayCompared to (JR Tokai), there is a deficit in the Kinki region and China / Hokuriku region other than the Keihanshin area.Local lineThe Keihanshin area is parallel to strong private railway lines, and the Sanyo Shinkansen has only about half the demand of the Tokaido Shinkansen, so it is said that the management base is relatively weak among the three companies in Honshu.[8][9],Hokkaido passenger railway(JR Hokkaido),Shikoku Passenger Railway(JR Shikoku),Kyushu passenger railwayManagement is stable compared to the so-called "three island companies" of (JR Kyushu).

Immediately after its establishment in JR West, the suburbs on the Keihanshin area are called "Urban Network"221 seriesIntroduction of suburban vehicles such asTokaido-Sanyo Main Line(Lake Biwa Line,JR Kyoto Line,JR Kobe Line)ofMultiple linesIncrease the speed and increase the speed of conventional line trains that make maximum use of, especially sign trainsLimited expressThe company has strengthened its profitability by focusing on investments in areas where line development was active, and working to expand operations.

Medium-term management plan from 2008 to 2012[10] In the above, "Sanyo Shinkansen transportation service" and "improvement of the value of line districts in the Keihanshin area" are clearly set as priority fields as "promotion of business strategy for sustainable development", while 10 to 15 years later As a measure for the local line in the “construction of a management concept from a long-term perspective”, “downsizing of local line facilities and systems” and “<bus,Dual mode vehicle Including the conversion of transportation modes to (DMV), etc.> Providing optimal transportation services for the region ”has been set as the management direction.

Sanyo ShinkansenAnd limited express trains departing and arriving at Keihanshin (Hokuriku Main Line,Kisei Main Line, San'in area), a conventional line in the Kinki areaUrban networkIn the area, we are aggressively introducing new rolling stock to meet the increasing number of trains and speeding up. On the Sanyo Shinkansen500 seriesWas developed and operated for the first time in Japan at 300km/h,Tokaido-Sanyo Main LineThen,Limited express-fastTo221 seriesSince the introduction of the, the new model vehicles have been actively introduced to the normal and high-speed vehicles. Conventional line vehicles are manufactured based on the concept of "bright, quiet and comfortable" or "bright, quiet and comfortable ride" that was launched when the 221 series train was newly designed.[124].

In regions other than the urban network, there are not many competitive routes with other companies, and it inherited from JNR, reflecting the severe business environment.103 series-201 series-105 series-113 series-115 series-457 seriesEach train andKiha 40 series diesel trainThere are many cases where such vehicles are used after being refurbished or life-extended.[Note 19].. A new general-purpose vehicle introduced by JR West that does not carry a local burden (introduced by JR West's own judgment)Non-electrifiedIt was put into almost all areas of the service from 1991 to 1995 to improve the constitution of local lines.Kiha 120 typeDiesel train (89 cars),Seto Ohashi LineRapid "Marine linerWas put in the Okayama area in 2003223 series 5000 series(14 cars)[Note 20] There are only 2 cars in 103 series, for exampleHiroshima cityHas a population of over 100 millionGovernment-designated cityDespite this, the Hiroshima area (Hiroshima City Network) After the privatization of JNR2015New vehicle (227 series) Was occupied by vehicles from the JNR era. Similarly, it is a government-designated cityOkayama CityMost of the Okayama area is still JNR vehicles. Since the deterioration of vehicles has become noticeable since the 2010s,419 series・475 series・457 series・415 series置き換えを目的に配備された521系(2009年以降配備の2次車・3次車の98両、2020年以降配備の七尾線向け30両)、広島地区の115系置き換えを目的に配備された227系(2014年以降の5年間で276両投入[80]), etc., a new vehicle has also appeared for the local ward based on the management judgment of JR West.

In addition, in some parts of the Keihanshin area, JNR vehicles remain,Osaka East Line-Yamato Line(Kansai Main Line)・Nara LineFor example, JNR trains are still in operation as of May 2020.Osaka Loop LineUntil 2019,Hanwa LineThen, the Japanese National Railways vehicle was in operation until March 2020. The 3 series of JNR vehicles on the Osaka East Line and Yamatoji Line will be replaced with the 201 series.2023The service is scheduled to end by the time[125].

In the past, it was the only company among the six JR passenger companies that its own business vehicles regularly boarded all five other JR passenger companies, but in 6, it was a temporary sleeper limited express that operates four days a week.Twilight expressHas been abolished, so there is no longer any access to JR Hokkaido.その他4社は毎日運転の列車が乗り入れているThe other four companies have daily trains[Note 21].. ShinkansenHokkaido ShinkansenSince 2016, when the company opened, it has been operating with other JR 3 companies (Eastern Japan, Tokai, Kyushu) that own the Shinkansen except JR Hokkaido.

The engine of the diesel carKomatsu WorksSA6D125 series and SA6D140 series are standard. In JR West, although there are in-house types of train control devices and bogies,diesel engineHas not been given an in-house format.

In addition, we often develop vehicles in collaboration with other JR groups, and JR Tokai is for the Tokaido / Sanyo Shinkansen.700 series/N700 seriesAnd for Sunrise Express285 series, JR Kyushu is the N700 series for direct access to the Kyushu Shinkansen, and JR East is for the Hokuriku Shinkansen.W7 series / E7 seriesAre being developed respectively.

Master controllerIs the same as private railways and subways in Kansai after 221 seriesHorizontal axis twin lever typeIs adopted.The Shinkansen 500 series also follows this method, which is the only case for Shinkansen trains.

Since the 221 series, the affiliation notation of conventional line vehicles has usually been written on the wife's side (same as Shinkansen vehicles), but after the 521 series 3rd car and 227 series, the JNR era and other JR passenger companies It came to be written on the side in the same way as, and the 207 series has moved the position of the affiliation notation due to the constitution improvement work.

Since 2009, as part of cost reduction measures, the body color of general steel vehicles, which had been different for each region and route, has been changed to a single color.[Note 26], The train has been changed to a single color of yellow in the Setouchi area, dark green in the Kyoto / Kitakinki area, blue-green in the Wakayama area, blue in the Hokuriku area, and madder in the Nanao line. In addition, diesel railcars are available in all areas except for some areas.Red No. 5The Kiha 120 type 200 series, which appeared after the inauguration of JR, has also been repainted in vermilion No. 5.

Introducing new cars at the expense of railway lines

Furthermore, in the case of equipment improvement of existing vehicles, there are cases where the same scheme is applied when the equipment is improved beyond the renewal due to life extension measures (running in Wakayama prefecture).105 seriesTowheelchairNewly installed compatible toilets, used for sightseeing trains for Hiroshima and Yamaguchi areasKiha 47 type 7000 seriesRemodeling costs, etc.). This results in a service gap depending on whether or not the local governments in the jurisdiction actively support JR, and also includes the urban network that introduces many new vehicles at its own expense based on management decisions. There is a service gap.

The Kiha 122 series and Kiha 127 series diesel railcars were the last to be introduced at the expense of the local government, and new vehicles after that have been introduced at the expense of JR West.

Development of a new generation tilting vehicle

In JR West1993On December 12th, a new generationVehicle with tilting bodyAsWEST-21Announced the concept[132].. This is to reduce the length of one car to 1m, which is half that of the conventional car, and to lower the height of the car by 10cm.Articulated bogieWhile the wheels are one axissnakeThe aim is to develop a vehicle that moves smoothly like this, aiming to improve the maximum speed from 120 km / h to 130 km / h, and it was said that it would start operation on the Hakubi line and Kisei main line in about 6 years (TalgoSee also).

After that, there was no announcement of trends regarding the "WEST-21" concept from JR West, and "" on the Kisei Line.KuroshioIs operated in381 seriesAs a replacement for (natural pendulum type vehicle), it does not have a body tilting function despite its low center of gravity structure.287 seriesWill be introduced[133], The above-mentioned new generation vehicle has not been introduced yet.
