Tickets for two of Japan’s soon to be retired Blue Trains sold out immediately after going on sale Friday morning, Japan Railway officials said.

The Fuji and Hayabusa long-distance express trains are scheduled to make their last runs on March 13. The Hayabusa, which debuted in 1958, connects Tokyo and Kumamoto. The Fuji, which launched in 1964, links Tokyo with Oita.
