Namiki-chuo Station platform

The Yokohama New Transit Seaside Line is a people mover in Yokohama’s Kanazawa Ward. It differs from traditional railways in a couple ways.  It doesn’t run on rails, it runs on a guideway with rubber tires.  Also, it has no driver.  It’s completely automated.

Yesterday, we went to Costco, which is near Namiki-chuo Station.  I took this picture on the platform, which is completely enclosed.

It’s mid-afternoon, so no big crowds yet.

2012 Picture of the Week (44/52) – Yokohama Seaside Line

The Yokohama Seaside Line isn’t a traditional train.  It runs on rubber tires on a guideway, and it’s fully automated.  There is no driver.  It runs between Shin-Sugita Station and Kanazawa-Hakkei Station.  This picture is taken under the line.  The entire line is elevated.  Also, a little news.  Today, this blog reached 50,000 views!  Thank you very much!  And now the picture.
