Everything you thought you wanted to know about the subway system but were afraid to ask.

Oh, man, I knew that about the suicides. That must be brutal for the people who operate the trains. And also, that's a good thing to know about what to do if you fall on the tracks. Something I've imagined in the past. Never knew to run to the other end like that. Good idea.
yeah some interesting information.
 i read an article once that interviewed a few operators who were driving the train when there was a suicide. horribly brutal.
I knew about a bunch of these, but I had NO IDEA there were so many suicides-by-train! Seems a bit high, no? In all the time I've been riding the train, I've never seen one, and I've only heard two first-hand accounts of people getting 86'ed by trains.
How about not trying to climb out if you fell in? I never knew you weren't supposed to do that.
5) Exactly. That goes against my intuition. But good to know about the ladder at the end of the platform.
Suicides on the railways here all the time. Rail companies used to charge the families of the jumper for all the delays caused..heartless world sometimes.
 In fact they are so common in Japan that they have the whole clearing up process systematized. Often they clear track and get the train back and running in less than 30 minutes.
A couple of lines, including the one I live on (Chuo line), are know to be "suicide lines."
