Tōbu is leading over Odakyū! GO! GO! TŌBU! xD

 

Come to think of it... Is Tōbu the only Ōte-shitetsu with a steam train?

What about the Oigawa and Mooka railways? Or they are too small to count?

Those are not Ōte-shitetsu (big private railways), but Chūshō-shitetsu (medium and small private railways) and Dai-san-sekutā (3rd Sector) respectively.

Those aren't major private railways.

 However, Oigawa railway is a subsidiary of Meitetsu, which is a major private railway.

Also i'm a bit surprised the Toyama Light Rail counts as a ote-shitetsu.

Apparently it's not about size, Oigawa is also there. They even added Aichi rapid transit (Linimo), which isn't even a proper train.

I'm not surprised that Keikyu is #1, considering its very impressive punctuality and the fact they never really ran any "fancy" train until very recently. Even more so considering all the train monitoring and track switching is still done by mostly human operators.

Keikyu is no. 1 because they have an insanely​ militant and active fanbase. ;)

I can understand why Hankyu is up in the top 3, the level of service and their immaculate trains is second to none. I wonder how the Otsu Lines are fairing, or are they just being bundled in with the rest of the Keihan Railway, mind you I got excellent service the other day at Keihan Gion. I showed one of the staff pictures of my Otsusen stock and he then showed me some Youtube footage of when he was a driver driving an 800 Series, he also gave me a Hibikie Euphonium pamphlet.

Looks like the Shonan Liner is in the lead, probably because of the 185 series trainsets.
