Doctor Yellow Shinkansen

ドクターイエロー

The Doctor Yellow Shinkansen is an iconic bullet train due to its color - bright, shiny yellow as opposed to the usual white color for normal, in-service passenger-carrying shinkansen trains.



Doctor Yellow trains monitor the condition of the bullet train track and overhead wire using hi-tech on board equipment, running at similar speeds to normal shinkansen such as the N700 series.



This Doctor Yellow Shinkansen is on display at the SCMaglev & Railway Park Museum in Nagoya.
