Awesome Cascades ad. Living on the East Coast I only see these two:
Amtrak | "Kids Repeat": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0ZoF2-bwFI
Amtrak | "Acela": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F6Ob0k5tg0

I'll throw in a vintage 1983 ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMEyDytiMFU

NS also has a sharp 14X48 single pole billboard on the Tri-State tollway around 95th. st.
Near Chicago, using the same theme.

Ah yes, Shinkansen.
I took it from Kyoto to Hiroshima once.
It's like flying, only much more stable.

Was that done just for a TV commercial, or was it some kind of new train run/ type launching?

And, yes, that VIA Rail commercial wants me to run from border to border. Spend a month (and quite a few $$$$$$$$$, too)

It was created to commemorate the Kyushu Shinkansen which was supposed to open March 12th. The earthquake hit March 11th and it was never shown. But was released to inspire people following the quake and tsunami.
