History The train was unveiled on 9 July 1973.[1] From 17 July 1973, test running commenced on the Sanyō Shinkansen between Shin-Osaka and Himeji as a 4-car set.[3] Test running as a 6-car formation commenced on 1 August 1973 on the Tōkaidō Shinkansen between Hamamatsu and Nagoya.[3] From 16 September 1974, the train was tested on the unopened section of the Sanyō Shinkansen between Okayama and Fukuyama, but the maximum speed was limited to 210 km/h due to opposition from lineside residents related to noise levels. The train was put into storage following the opening of the Sanyō Shinkansen extension in March 1975.[1] On 11 May 1979, the Class 961 was transferred from storage at Ōi Depot in Tokyo (now JR Central's Tokyo No. 2 Shinkansen Depot) by road to the shinkansen depot at Oyama in Tochigi Prefecture for use on the "Oyama Test Track" section of the Tōhoku Shinkansen then under construction. Test running started on 5 June 1979, and the lettering "高速試験車" (High-Speed Test Train) was added to the nose section of the train from 9 June.[1] On 7 December 1979, the Class 961 recorded a world speed record of 319 km/h on the Oyama Test Track, breaking the previous world record of 286 km/h set by the Class 951 Shinkansen in 1972.[4] Following the opening of the Tōhoku Shinkansen in 1981, the Class 961's role as a test train ended, and it was stored at Sendai Shinkansen Depot. It was formally withdrawn on 10 August 1990.[1] Preservation Car 961-1 at Sendai Shinkansen Depot, July 2009 End cars 961-1 and 961-6 are preserved outdoors at Sendai Shinkansen Depot. These cars have been repainted into "Tōhoku Shinkansen" ivory and green livery.[5] A brass plaque commemorating the world speed record of 319 km/h set by this train in 1979 is displayed inside car 951-1 at Kokubunji in Tokyo.
