Hi Guys, last weekend I got the chance to visit Tokyo and since all flights from the little city where I´m working at the moment where booked I got first class tickets for a train ride from Fukui to Tokyo (ca. 400Km) by train. A colleague and I started in Fukui with an Express Train to Maibara where the line is crossing the Tokaido Sanyo Shinkansen tracks. The first pictures are made at the train station in Fukui, which is at the moment under construction but it is a very busy place, mostlikely commuter trains and many locals. Every 20 minutes a freight train is passing, nearly all cars are loaded with container which are very short (20Foot or less). I think they are made for truck transportation later on. The last picture shows our Express.
