Delay on JR

Day 10 Post
Note: This is from a series of trip reports from my January 2010 Tokyo Trip. They are random musings about whatever seems interesting for that day.

I was headed to Yokohama on day 10 to visit a friend. The following message popped up on the display. Chuo Line “Delay” due to “clearing tracks.” Ome Line “direct operation suspended” due to “clearing tracks.” “Clearing tracks” is code for a suicide on the line. Luckily I was not affected by this but my friends in Japan who use the Chuo and Ome lines complain that this seems to happen every day now.


This message board showed up early one afternoon.

Cryptic language but the message is very clear.
