Work Needed[edit]

This article is in some places inconsistent and completely unable to be understood. I did some work repairing the most glaring and obvious grammatical and spelling errors, and I tried to keep the original context (when it could be understood). The middle paragraph in the History section is disorganized and needs major work, I think. The author of that paragraph and the surrounding sections is obviously trying to add decent information but cannot do it in some instances. For example, the line about the Odakyu Line being sometimes regarded as a bypass of the Tohaku line mentioning Yokohama in wartime and also a 1957 speed test. That information could be elaborated upon, but as it is it is almost schizophrenic. If you see a sentence which sounds really odd for a native speaker to write, that means I could not understand the context of the sentence, or the relevant data, well enough to rephrase it correctly.

Yeah, it looks like a Japanese speaker has written most of it. I'll check some of the original sentences on the Japanese version and clean it up a bit tonight or tomorrow. Simon-in-sagamihara (talk) 23:36, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

There are three articles here...silly. Odakyu Odawara Line has to be merged with this article (Odakyu Electric Railway), and 30000 SE series.

Cleanup: Should be 3 articles named: Odakyu Electric Railway Corporation Odakyu Odawara Line, linked from the Odakyu Electric Railway Corporation main page Romance Car, with a link to 30000 SE Series, as well as the 6-7 other series trainsets they have...should be taken from Odakyu Odawara Line page...but i made a booboo and called it romancecar...please fix this.

"Some Odakyu trains from the Tama Line continue on to the Eidan Chiyoda Line at Yoyogi_Uehara."

  • I Oppose with your proposal. This page is the main page for the Odakyu Electric Railway corporation, it does not make sense to merge niether the 30000 SE series page or the Odakyu Odawara line page with this page. Both represent items that deserve its own seperate page. If we were to merge it all into one page, it would be like merging all the lines of JR East and all its train sets into one massive page on JR East. ps, please follow proper wikipedia guidelines when using the talk page.

Romancecar[edit]

Yes, it's that way. You can find it on their Japanese site. --日本穣 Nihonjoe 19:19, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
