Kitakyushu Monorail - Page 2 of 7
Pictures and commentary by Kim Pedersen

These are LARGE, subway-capacity trains! Each four-car train 478 passengers, and up to 1078 with crush loads.

Kokura Station, as seen from an elevated pedestrian walkway.

Departing Kokura station the two beams come together with help from this interesting support. I shot this image in the early morning before these elevated pedestrian walkways were crowded with people going about their business.

This fabulous view is from the Kokura Station Hotel, located directly over the monorail station. The train is entering the original Kokura Station, the original terminal station for the line. Tanga Station follows closely around the bend.
