As far as I can tell from reading the Japanese press, there are two opposing claims. Some, including Nikkei, are reporting that the trains are nearly empty after the accident and the railways will sooner or later fail because of excess liabilities. I, however, think that opinion is the wish of those who feel that Japan has fallen behind a rising China

By contrast, Asahi's reporter actually rode on a train and reported that it was still packed yesterday. It reported that more than a few people on the train did not care that crashes would again happen. I think this is closer to the truth.
