New Shuttle

The New Shuttle is a manually driven rubber-tyred people mover system in Saitama Prefecture, operated by Saitama New Urban Transit Co. Ltd.. The 12.7-kilometre Ina Line that runs north from Ōmiya Station in Saitama, alongside the Tohoku Shinkansen and Joetsu Shinkansen elevated high-speed lines through Ageo to Uchijuku Station in Ina in Saitama Prefecture in the Greater Tokyo Area is the only route, run on the system. The line is double tracked from Ōmiya Station to Maruyama Station and single tracked from Maruyama to Uchijuku Station. Saitama New Urban Transit is a kabushiki gaisha whose major shareholders include the East Japan Railway Company, Tobu Railway, Saitama prefectural government, the cities and the town served; the stations on the line are as follows. All stations are located in Saitama Prefecture; the line's depot is located next to Maruyama Station. As of 1 April 2016, the following train types are used on the line, all formed as six-car sets. 1050 series 2000 series 2020 series As of 1 April 2016, four 1050 series sets were in service, formed as six-car sets as follows.

The 2000 series fleet consists of seven six-car sets formed. The trains have stainless steel bodies with different colour front ends and bodyside stripes; the 2020 series fleet consists of three six-car sets formed. Built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, the trains have aluminium bodies; each set has a different accent colour. The first 2020 series trainset, numbered 21, entered service on 4 November 2015. Set 22 entered service in February 2016, followed by set 23 in June 2016.. A fourth trainset, numbered 24, entered service on 12 February 2019. 1010 seriesBy 1 April 2015, three 1010 series sets remained in service, formed as six-car sets. The last set was withdrawn following its last day in service on 26 June 2016; the people of Ina town, on the branch point of the Tohoku and Joetsu Shinkansen high-speed railway lines, opposed the latter being routed through their area, complaining that the town would be divided by the new tracks and beset with noise pollution. To placate the residents, new railway lines were planned.

The AGT Ina Line was the solution reached for the area north of Ōmiya Station, where the potential demand was not large enough to run heavy rail lines economically. A heavy rail line was the solution reached for the south of Ōmiya Station. 1 April 1980: Operating company Saitama New Urban Transit Co. Ltd. is incorporated. 22 December 1983: The section between Ōmiya and Hanuki stations opens. 2 August 1990: The remaining section between Hanuki and Uchijuku stations opens. 14 October 2007: Ōnari Station is renamed Tetsudō-Hakubutsukan Station when the Railway Museum opens.

Theodore Cressy Skeat

Theodore Cressy Skeat was a librarian at the British Museum, where he worked as Assistant Keeper, Deputy Keeper, Keeper of Manuscripts and Egerton Librarian. Skeat was educated at Whitgift School and Christ's College, where he graduated with a Second-class BA in the Classical Tripos in 1929. Following a further short spell as a student at the British School of Archaeology in Athens, he was recruited by the British Museum in 1931, his work coincided with two important acquisitions by the Trustees of the aforementioned institution, namely the Codex Sinaiticus and the apocryphal Gospel Egerton 2 Papyrus. He made a name for himself with important contributions to palaeography and codicology, particularly—but not only—in relation to these two acquisitions, he was the grandson of noted philologist Walter William Skeat. Skeat was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1963, but resigned in 1979, in protest against its decision not to expel Anthony Blunt after the latter was exposed as a former Soviet spy.
