Yamanote Line in central Tokyo getting new trains in November.


Additional screens and fewer advertisements will be featured on new trains for the Yamanote Line in Tokyo next month when the bustling loop gets its first upgrade in 13 years, East Japan Railway Co. said Oct. 13.




Each car in the new E235 series will have 28 digital panels, a significant jump from the current eight screens on Yamanote Line trains, to display information and sponsored ads. The screens will be 17 to 21.5 inches in size on the new trains.



The number of slots for printed ads in each car will be reduced from the current 82 to 26, and advertisements will be limited to areas near the exits and on ceiling frames.
