Outline

With the concept of traveling gracefully to HAKONE, the new GSE model which replaces the LSE model, offers not just better comfort, panoramic views and improved functions but also updated safety and environmental measures. This new Romancecar meets the needs of today and reflects the care of everyone involved in its design. The rose-vermillion colored cars accented with Odakyu’s traditional stripe line, are seven-bogey-cars as a fixed set, and the design of the observation cars at each end has been streamlined to create a more integrated look with the middle cars. Larger window-screen in the leading car that is constituted by the curved surface independent from the side and the roof surface, offer improved horizontal and vertical visibility for an exciting panoramic experience.
