Postive Headline - Japanese Railway for 1

good news 2016
The story of  Kami-Shirataki Station in northern Japan is a touching one. It was seen as remote and unusable after a very few number of passengers boarded and got off there. It has always been on Japans Railway list to go.
But despite being seen as unusable, two trains make a stop at this station each day. One at 7am to pick up and at 5pm to drop off a single student who without these trains would not be able to get to school.
The area around Kami-Shirataki Station have lost 20 rail lines in the past years and it will not be long until this line becomes another. The student will finish her education in March and the line that made sure she would get that education will close down for good.
