And this weird contraption too.

Oddly enough, the discussion in the thread was about automatic railroad crossing signals, or something.

Japan seems to have a bunch of these interurban like services intact that are legally operated as railways, so they don't show up on the lists of tramway systems.

 No.5516

Yes, the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botchan_Ressha is something different, isn’t it?

Unless Giggle Translate made a bigger hash of the text than usual, the thread began as a question about an odd device, apparently called a ‘trolley contactor’. It is an insulated switch activated by a passing trolley or pantograph that can then affect nearby signals and/or points.

>>5516
On old streetcar systems switches were often thrown by drawing power over a special electric circuit before the switch. Generally modern systems use radio control switches but a lot of the unmodernized streetcar systems in Japanese C-cities still use the old method (no electronics, will last forever).

I German cities particular least there's also in use this "switching magnet" system. It's very un-googleable when you don't know the right Anglo-Saxon jargon.

Caption:
Ilmajohto = catenary
Vaihteenkääntökeskus = point turning cabinet (by the way, there were originally 600 V resistors, but these were not reliable enough for some reason)
Kääntörele = point turning relay
lankasulake = wire fuse
Vaunu = car
vaihteenlämmityskeskus = point heating cabinet
termostaattiohjaus = thermostat control
täysteho = full power
Ajokiskot = tracks
kääntörele = point turning relay
kääntömagneetti koneisto = (point) turning magnet machinery

What sort of system it is, this radio system? Some suitably modulated analog signal or some really secial protocol with encryption and everything?

Apparently some systems use infrared:

reed box, bout 10 m away.

The rules say, reportedly, that a driver must approach in such a speed that they can stop in 7 meters if necessary and no car may pass the relay box before the previous tram has cleared the switch.

I suppose special wire section or special senser between the tracks kind of systems areinherently vulnerable to multitrack drifting.

IIRC rail freight has very little relevance in Japan, for various reasons: there's dense passenger service, small-ish loading gauge, and population density makes rail freight less economical than trucks (not so many large shipments that have to go long ways, etc.)
This is from hearsay tho, maybe someone with more specific knowledge can tell you more.

The situation is quite the reverse from the US. In Japan, freight runs on passenger lines. And, yes, JR Freight is kind of the ’poor stepsibling’ in the JR Group, with about 50km/30mi of rail in its name. OTOH, they do have one of the coolest freight movers about, namely the M250 “Super Rail Cargo” EMU.

Some of the most intensive JR freight routes operate through the Seikan Tunnel (and they might get gimped to make way for the moneypit Shinkansen).

Coastal shipping is still common in Japan (it's not a coincidence that so many Japanese factories are located on or near the coast). If you fly into Haneda you'll see that Tokyo Bay is full of barges and little cargo ships.
