はやぶさとさくら

ブルートレインの「はやぶさ」が3/13に廃止になりました(あ、門司で分かれて大分に行く「富士」も)。

正直、1999年に「はやぶさ」の終着が熊本になったときに、私の中の「はやぶさ」は終わってしまった感じです。

まあ、今回も廃止になると聞いた時は多少の感慨はありました。

正直言うと、感慨というよりは、ここでうまいこと熊本終着の「はやぶさ」が廃止になってくれて、山陽新幹線と九州新幹線の全線(新大阪‐鹿児島中央)開業時の列車名が「はやぶさ」になってくれたらいいのにな~、と思っていたのです。

残念ながら、こちらは昨年の10月から11月にかけて名前を募集し、今年2月には「さくら」という名前に決まりました。
「さくら」には、応募総数168,951通中7,927もの応募があったそうです。

「さくら」もとても歴史のある名前で、始まりは戦前の特別急行列車の愛称にさかのぼるそうです。その後いろいろあったようですが、「はやぶさ」が2005年に「富士」と一緒(併結というそうです)になる前は「さくら」と一緒だったりもしています。
ただ、最終的には東京‐長崎間の寝台特急だった列車の名前なので、やはり東京‐西鹿児島(今の鹿児島中央)を走った「はやぶさ」になってほしかったところです。

ちなみに、公募二位はもちろん「はやぶさ」だったとのこと。1000と少しの差があったそうですが・・・ああ、私も一票投じるべきでした。

JR西日本プレスリリースより引用です。

・応募総数
 168,951通(一日平均4,023通)
・最多応募列車名
 さくら(7,927通)

これで万が一九州新幹線長崎ルートに「はやぶさ」を採用することがあったりしたら、ちょっとどうなの、という感じですよね。

ちなみに、「さくら」の歴史をWikipediaで調べていたところ、仕事を終えたばかりの「はやぶさ」の客車を使って、今年の3月20日に1日限定で門司港駅‐長崎駅間で「さくら」が復活運行すると載っていました。復路は「あかつき」だそうですが。

にしても、Wikipediaの鉄道系の説明はアツいですね!
