More pictures most certainly please...........................

Where does this line get funding from?

Does the operator of this line operate more than one line?

Are all stations equipped with elevators?

How much in US$ does it take to ride from one end to the other?

How long does it take?

Does it use magnetic strip farecards? Is JR the only Japanese rail company to use contactless smart cards?

Local government in four prefectures (Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama & Ibaraki)

No

Yes

How much in US$ does it take to ride from one end to the other?
About $10 USD. Slightly more expensive than the express bus service between Tokyo Station and Tsukuba.

How long does it take?
45 minutes on the rapid train

TX did not implement contactless smart card technology in the fare collection system. There are some privately owned railways that use contactless cards in Japan...Tokyu and Hankyu are among them.

I believe JR East in the Tokyo area only is using contactless smart cards, called "Suica" (watermelon in japanese). The Rinkai waterfront line also uses Suica because it shares through service with JR.

All other Tokyo railways and subways use "passnet", which is just a normal charge farecard.

I don't know about Hankyu or other Osaka railways.

Suica also works for Tokyo Monorail as well.

TX uses 'Passnet', a magnet prepayment card/ storedfare system card/ cybermoney card, which has been adopted by more than 1500 stations of the whole railway companies in Metro Tokyo (excluding JR East).
But next year, 'Passnet' in Metro Tokyo (and the same kind of card for buses in Metro Tokyo) gives way to 'Suica' , a contactless IC card which is adopted by JR East, thus since 2006 'Suica' dominates over almost all the users of JR, subways, private railways, skytrains, monorails, trams, buses in Metro Tokyo.


FYI
current 'Passnet' of subways/private railways/buses
Every time you go through the ticketing gate, your record is enrolled on the rear face of the card.


current 'Suica' of JR/monorails :walkthrough at the ticketing gate/poles

or use the mobile phone with FeLiCa (Sony's leading IC technology)

What is the current length (mileage) of the entire Tokyo Urban Railway Network?

What is the mileage in kilometers? How many lines? (I heard there were 70 lines in total--that's adding all the two subway networks, private railways, and JR Lines) If anyone knows, I would be glad if you can tell me. Thanks

Well, sir, there's nothing on earth like a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car monorail!

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.
