Commentary/Human InterestINT/International -Apr 27 2014 (16:58) Race against the clock: Shinkansen staff have just 7 minutes to get bullet train ready to ride
rdb*^ 132877 news posts
Japan’s shinkansen, or bullet train in the West, was the world’s first high-speed train running at 200km per hour, and today the Tōkaidō Shinkansen is the world’s most used high-speed rail line. Impressively, even with over 120,000 trains running on the line each year, the average delay time is a mere 36 seconds!
Part of the reason the bullet train system can run as smoothly as it does is thanks to the ‘hospitality group’ working behind the scenes of the sleek, futuristic facades of these famous trains. These cleaning crews are charged with covering every inch of a train’s interior when it arrives at its final stop and preparing it for the next wave of customers–and they have just seven minutes to do it.

Japan to Japan Hai:-)
Even 10 percent of Japanese culture will lift IR by leaps and bounds..
DMRC is a shining example of Japanese influence on Indian Infra.
