Shikoku Railway Company - Lines



JR Shikoku operates a railway system of 855.2 km. Unlike other JR companies, JR Shikoku discontinued the classification of "Main Lines" and others in the names of its railway lines in 1988. Prior to the change, the Dosan, Kōtoku, Tokushima and Yosan Lines were Main Lines.

Each line is color-coded and labeled with a letter, which is used to assign a station number to each station on the line. For example, Naruto Station on the Naruto Line (labeled N) is numbered N10. Although this method is widely accepted in metro systems in Japan, JR Shikoku was the first JR company to use it.

Famous quotes containing the word lines:

    Was seiz’d by the spirit that trails in the lines underfoot,
    The rim, the sediment that stands for all the water and all the land
    of the globe.

    Fascinated, my eyes reverting from the south, dropt, to follow those slender windrows,
    Chaff, straw, splinters of wood, weeds, and the sea-gluten,
    Scum, scales from shining rocks, leaves of salt-lettuce, left by the tide,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    ... when I awake in the middle of the night, since I knew not where I was, I did not even know at first who I was; I only had in the first simplicity the feeling of existing as it must quiver in an animal.... I spent one second above the centuries of civilization, and the confused glimpse of the gas lamps, then of the shirts with turned-down collars, recomposed, little by little, the original lines of my self.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Wittgenstein imagined that the philosopher was like a therapist whose task was to put problems finally to rest, and to cure us of being bewitched by them. So we are told to stop, to shut off lines of inquiry, not to find things puzzling nor to seek explanations. This is intellectual suicide.
    Simon Blackburn (b. 1944)
