The Tokaido/Sanyo Main Line's last and longest Blue Train is here!
The "Sakura/Hayabusa," which had been running as a single train since the times of the Japanese National Railways (JNR), is considered to have been the first coupled Blue Train in 1999 after becoming part of Japan Railways (JR), which was a result of the JNR being privatized and split into smaller companies.
It was initially talked about as a combined blue train consisting of Series 24 and Series 14. This composition was also the longest consist for the single "Fuji" which operated in the same formation. After 2002, the formation was shortened and after the discontinuation of the "Sakura" in 2005, the "Fuji" and "Hayabusa" operated in combination before ending their service in 2009.
