my favorite train is the hankai tramway

hope you got a 4k big screen foamer


occasionally the pharmacists here do a promotion where they sell really cheap train tickets that can be used on any day, but only for one day, that let you ride as much as you want

i usually have one on me but i don't swipe it before i get on the train so it doesnt get activated. and then if a train guard asks to see my ticket i pretend that i'm new to the country and i didn't know how it works and they forgive me
the train network where i live has just been privatised, but like, just the service itself, not the physical assets, which the government retains ownership of, i assume because that means all maintenance is a public expense or something? anyway, all rail staff are now meant to be employed by the private operator, except a bunch refused to sign the new contracts, and now a significant number who refused but are still subject to govt employment contracts are being forced to continue operating the trains while they work out what they're going to do about it. anyway the whole thing stinks, the end
