923 TYPE DOCTOR YELLOW SETS

923形 ドクターイエロー[KYŪNĪSANKEI DOKUTĀIERŌ]

Test trains that monitor the condition of the tracks, overhead wires, and other facilities that support the high-speed operation of Shinkansen. They are nicknamed “Shinkansen’s doctor” or more commonly “Doctor Yellow.” Because they operate without a publicly known schedule, some Japanese believe that a rare sighting of this distinctive diagnostic train brings good fortune and happiness.
