Typhoon Faxai Affects 2.7 M. Train Passengers in Tokyo Area

Typhoon Faxai Affects 2.7 M. Train Passengers in Tokyo Area

   Tokyo, Sept. 9 (Jiji Press)--Typhoon Faxai forced East Japan Railway Co. <9020> to halt 3,837 non-Shinkansen trains in the Tokyo area Monday, affecting some 2,777,000 people, the company said.
   The railway operator, known as JR East, said Sunday that it would halt Monday's non-Shinkansen train services until around 8 a.m. (11 p.m. Sunday GMT) due to the typhoon.
   But the resumption was delayed on many train lines due to the typhoon moving at a slower speed than anticipated, damage to rail equipment and the discovery of objects such as fallen trees on rail tracks.
   Some sections, including on the Yokosuka Line, were unable to resume services on Monday.
   The company restricted entry of passengers into some stations such as Ofuna on the Tokaido Line, forcing many people to wait for a long period of time to get on trains.
