The E3 is classified as a “mini-shinkansen” train, as she operates at relatively low speed (80 mph) on rail lines converted from cape gage (42 in.) to standard gage (56 1/2 in.) outside of dedicated high-speed lines. The car body of the mini-shinkansen trains needs to be narrower than trains operated only on dedicated high-speed lines due to the smaller loading gage on the converted lines (9 ft. 8 in. for mini-shinkansen trains compared to 11 ft. for standard trains). The E3 features one of the most simplistic nose shape designs of all Japanese high-speed trains but still looks quite good. Three variants of production E3s have been built by Kawasaki and Tokyu, the Series E3, E3-1000, and E-2000. Trainsets used in the Akita Shinkansen service are the original Series E3 only and they have been in service since 1997. On dedicated high-speed lines, the top speed of the Komachi is 170 mph.
This is a music video from the game made for the E3 Komachi. The song was also dedicated to the train and was named Love Tokyu Komachi, or Love Limited Express Komachi.
