its a pain in the rear.  but go to the japanese version of the timetable/train search.  use the auto translate on google/chrome etc.  select your stations.  some stations just dont work when the translator is on, you will get an error message.  so you will need to turn off the translator before hitting the final search button.

once you got an option/s, pick the "other trains on this section" link.

Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for!

One slight difficulty though, if I do Shin-Osaka to Kokura versus shin-Osaka to Hiroshima I get a different number of Kodama services. I'm guessing this only shows the trains between two destinations that happen to stop at both?

Which means if I can figure out all of the stations where trains terminate or originate between Osaka and Hakata I can see all of the trains albeit over a few separate tabs.

 

There is only one Hikari rail star service 😞

If the timetable is too much work you can use Google Maps. It doesn't always come up with the best route, but it's usually decent. You can change the leave/arrive time to a date in the future, and it seems to have all the timetables programmed in.

Just do Hakata and Shin-Osaka.

 

Okayama has the most finishers/starters other than the above two stations.

Hiroshima would probably be next most?

This is for doing a bit of spotting versus riding the train. The JR West website or Google will be plenty to sort out getting a train somewhere.
