Automated Night "Rail"

The Yurikamome Line from Shimbashi to Toyosu isn't technically a rail line since... well... no rails!  It's rolling stock is all rubber-tired people movers running on concrete "tracks".  And it's 100% automated, all computer-controlled.

No real reason to post this, honestly.  It's just pretty watching the lights and sites of Tokyo, Odaiba, and oh, Tokyo Big Sight is the 11th stop.  And it almost makes me feel like I'm a functioning human being.  Duck.  Whatever.  

Enjoy, won't you?

3 I rode Yurikamome in 2007 when I visited the Tokyo Anime Fair at Big Sight with my daughter. I found that its representation in Dai-Guard was quite faithful, although of course it has completed its transition from a commuter line to a tourist hauler by the time.

4 We just got our first fully automated transport line here in Sydney.  It's, um, having a few teething problems.

5 Pixy, does that mean it's eating passengers?
