Driving That Train . . .

I don't believe that I am alone in thinking that Japan is the home of many technological innovations and that many of its city dwelling populous live in one of the most, if not the most, technologically advanced societies. While in some cases this is true it is not a complete picture of Japan as some of the infrastructure and technologies in regular use are somewhat antiquated. As you can see no over-engineering is present on the trains, no robot drivers or computers here, the trains are kept running on a meticulous schedule by humans holding low-tech laminated timetables.
