JR Freight over Yodogawa Bridge

This bridge is located due south of Suita Freight Terminal. I'd been there twice or more during 2008/2009 and had either seen a DD51 hauling a container train or a dead-headed passenger EMU movement. Unfortunately my timetable does not show the latter, but the following should aid people in seeing freight movements in the area.
Note that the distance from Suita to the bridge is around 3.5km and then another ~30km to Kudara. The trip is timed at ~40mins, so I'd say that the train will cross the bridge within 5-10 minutes of leaving Suita and therefore recommend you simply use the departure time from Suita as a guide. The timing listed below for 'Yodogawa' is my estimate. Note that the 'North' timetables are reversed so that the times indicated are all centered around the bridge.

JR Freight from Suita to Osaka Terminal (Shinkansen Depot)

This freight line runs from Suita via Senrioka to the Osaka Freight Terminal in Settsu City. This happens to be located directly next to Osaka's Tokaido Shinkansen Depot. This freight line crosses the main Tokaido Line (not Shinkansen) via a large concrete viaduct that begins to the North-East of Senrioka station and continues all the way in a U-shape to the entrance of the freight depot.
See Google Maps here for the location of this line.

Gakunan Railway

The following timetable is quite interesting. It seems to describe a single train shunting back and forth between all the stations along the Gakunan Railway. I intend on confirming this at a not-so-later date and will update this page as I find out more.

Okayama to Shikoku (Takamatsu and Matsuyama)

All freight from Honshu to Shikoku must pass into Takamatsu first and then proceed west to Matsuyama if required. Due to this, the timetable is aligned against Takamatsu Terminal as that would be the best place for checking out the movements.
