Some Railway Services Resumed after Typhoon

   Tokyo, Oct. 13 (Jiji Press)--Some railway services were resumed in Japan on Sunday after being suspended the previous day as very strong Typhoon Hagibis hit the country.
   East Japan Railway Co. <9020>, or JR East, restarted operations of the Yamanote Line around 9:30 a.m. (12:30 a.m. GMT). The company initially planned to bring the loop line in central Tokyo back into service around noon, but moved up the schedule after confirming the safety of its facilities.
   JR East also resumed services on the Yokohama Line, the Chuo rapid and Sobu local lines, and other lines in the morning while deciding to continue suspending operations of such lines as the Keihin-Tohoku, Saikyo, Takasaki and Musashino lines until Sunday evening.
   Central Japan Railway Co. <9022>, or JR Tokai, restarted the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train line. Trains on the line are slowing down on some sections, leading to delays, according to the company.
   The Joetsu Shinkansen Line was put back into service shortly before 10 a.m., according to JR East officials. Meanwhile, it remains to be seen when the Hokuriku Shinkansen Line will resume operations, the officials said.
