    About
    The Musashino Line is a railway line operated by the East Japan Railway Company (JR East). It links Tsurumi Station in Yokohama with Nishi-Funabashi Station in Chiba Prefecture, forming a 100.6 km unclosed loop around central Tokyo.
    Passenger operations are limited to the 71.8 km portion between Fuchūhommachi and Nishi-Funabashi; the Tsurumi to Fuchūhommachi portion, called the "Musashino South Line", is normally used only by freight trains. The line forms part of what JR East refers to as the "Tokyo Mega Loop" around Tokyo, consisting of the Keiyo Line, Musashino Line, Nambu Line, and Yokohama Line.

    Conclusion
    This route would be an excellent addition to train sim word not only due to the high demand for a Japanese route but the use of both fright and passenger services.

    Added to the Japanese master list. Would be great to have a route with both the 209s and freight locos.
