Japanese railway company makes public apology when train departs 25 seconds earlier

A railway company in Japan has apologised after one of its trains left from a station 25 seconds earlier than scheduled. This was the second time in the span of a few months.

The operator stated  that the inconvenience to the public is inexcusable.

According to Japan Today, the train driver had been under the impression that the train had been scheduled to depart from Notogawa station at 07.11, instead of at the scheduled time of 07.12.

After closing the train doors, the driver realised his mistake, and at that point had been in time to rectify it.

As he had not seen any passenger waiting at the station, however, the driver decided to depart earlier than the scheduled time – a full 25 seconds earlier.
