The Tokyo Waterfront Railway Rinaki line connects to the JR Saikyo line at Osaki and trains can run thru as far as Kawagoe. The 70 series is based on the JR 209 series train.

The Tozai Subway line connects with the Chuo line at one end and the Sobu line at the other end.

The two Hankyu sets are the same except for the car numbers and destination signs.
