Forward #15 - Overcoming the Disaster - Tohoku Shinkansen

Written by Nippon Sekai   
Sunday, 08 April 2012
27 Shinkansen bullet trains were running on the Tohoku line when the earthquake hit on March 11th.

All of them stopped safely without a single casualty.  Various facilities and pieces of equipment were severely damaged by the main quake and aftershocks.  Restoration work began quickly and service resumed throughout the Tohoku Shinkansen line just 50 days after the disaster.  This episode examines the safety technology of the Shinkansen and the efforts necessary to resume service.

The total runtime is around 24 minutes and is hosted on Dailymotion (as mentioned before, ads are auto inserted).
