JR East - Train Suite Shikishima

Looks like this train isn't immune to the real world .

 

Last July I was in Aizu-Wakamatsu and was told that the consist had pantograph issues on the way and had to de-train passengers in Kitakata, only to pick them back up in Aizu a stop later (but a few hours.)

 

Meanwhile, last night at 3am the consist happened to intersect a human lying on the rails. Quite a classy way to go!

 

The man was "lying on the track".....the train tried to brake but of course didn't have enough time.
