I’m trying to think how this train would cope on British railway lines. No longer would the “leaves on the line” excuse work, would it? I also wonder about vandals, and cows on the line and such like, does Japan have the same issues? (The departure of the 3:15 to Osaka is delayed as there is a Pokemon on the track?).
Thinking about it this train would be ideal for the Glasgow to London sleeper. It would also stop the false advertising that accompanies the aforementioned service – sleeper? are you kidding me! only way to get to sleep was to get plastered, which left you hungover on a shoggly, noisy train the next morning. Not a pleasant experience, especially before a job interview (but that’s another story completely).
The geek in me says “Cool, I want a shot!”
The pessimist says “Safety first please”.
