Local trains/Пригородные поезда

Local trains is an important means of transportation in Japan. People use these trains to go to work to other towns. Schoolchildren use such trains to go to school every day, and during the times of holidays it is sometimes difficult to even enter such a train.

Пригородные поезда имеют большое значение для транспортной инфраструктуры Японии. Люди ездят на работу в соседние города. Школьники ездят на учебу, а уж во времена местных праздников бывает столько пассажиров, что очень сложно даже войти.

 
 
The train is not large, and it is managed only by one driver.
 
Поезд совсем небольшой, всего несколько вагонов и управляется одним вагоновожатым.
 
 
Every train driver parks the train on the station such that its doors match the markings on the platform.

Каждый вагоновожатый останавливает поезд так, чтобы двери поезда совпадали с отметками на станции.


Despite the small size, trains usually go as fast as 110 km/h (almost 70 mph).

Несмотря на маленький размер, поезда легко развивают скорость до 110 километров в час.


The trains are quite comfortable.

Внутри поезда комфортно, светло и тепло.
