The train color may change, but one thing which will not change is the crowded aspect of the train. That remains the same. CROWDED AS USUAL

Then again, its the crowd which makes this city and we love it for all that it has to offer. The anniversary edition is a welcome change to the regular steel and green color of the Yamanote, the lifeline of the city
