   Welcome to the Japanese Railway Society

The Japanese Railway Society (JRS) was founded in 1991 in London to promote the knowledge of the
railways of Japan in the UK & other non-Japanese-speaking parts of the world. Since 1991, there have
been several activities like exhibitions (also of railway models), a TV-show (on Naruhodo The World, Fuji TV),
many meetings in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and many guided tours to and meetings in Japan.
Our membership is now more than 200 people in over 10 countries worldwide.

Negishi Line Freight

The Negishi Line in Yokohama is one of the easier spots to see JR Freight services in action due to the proximity of the port and Negishi oil refinery. Hiroshi Naito has shared some recent shots from the area for our monthly photos.

All Photos: Hiroshi Naito taken 12th July 2018.
