It is interesting to hear about the sightseeing train in Hokkaido.  I always thought that JR East would have been first to move into Hokkaido with one of their loco hauled trains for a cruise train of some thought.

"Meanwhile, JR Hokkaido will benefit from the fee Tokyu will pay for the use of its tracks and the tourism business know-how it will be able to learn from its partner."

 

Also maybe some 'trains-not-falling-off-the-tracks' know-how...

Yup, can find them in mens restrooms in Aeon shopping malls all over the nation.  May have been rare 20 years ago, but now pretty standard in recent construction, especially where families are likely to gather.
