Yamanote Freight Line-the only scheduled daytime freight train that runs through central Tokyo


Recommended Posts

Freight Train no 3086 that runs from Sapporo to Nagoya is the only scheduled freight train that runs through central Tokyo on the Yamanote Freight Line.  It is hauled by a Sendai based EH500 series dual voltage locomotive between Aomori and Shin Tsurumi travelling via the Tohoku Main Line, Yamanote Freight and Hinkaku Line (official name of Yokosuka Line between Shinagawa /Osaki & Tsurumi) and then after a locomotive change at Shin Tsurumi on to the Tokaido Freight Line / Tokaido Main Line to Nagoya. 


Most Freight Trains bypass Central Tokyo, instead using the Nambu Freight Line, Nambu Line and Musashino Line.
