The video is titled "Touring inside the Kawasaki Rail Car Facility", not "Tour the new R188s."

At some point in the video he said something along the lines of "When you go home you feel accomplished because you built something great". I can imagine. Building a a whole train that took a month then you go to NYC and see it run and you can tell your self I built that train. Must be a great feeling! B-)

Those are some of the most glum workers I've seen in a while. The managers are all smiles, but the workers don't look too happy at all.

 

They mention that the 188's are graffiti free...the current NTT's certainly don't just allow for graffiti to just "wipe away", I wonder if they changed something in the paint or car body.
