(Redirected from KCR)

For the company which operates the KCR network, see Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation.

KCR (Kowloon-Canton Railway) is a railway network in central Joban, stretching from Central South to Joestu. The eastern section of the Joban railway network is a monopoly for KCRC, which is the company that owns and operates the network.

The network is the only network in central Joban not to be government-owned, with Shintetsu operating in the southern regions of Joban. However, the Joban government is still the controlling shareholder, with a stake of 85% in KCRC.


Although most railway networks are operated by a consortium of companies, central Joban is unique in that every company owns and maintains their own network. The KCR network is operated exclusively by KCRC, and consists of 1 main line, 1 Shinkansen, and multiple feeder lines.

The Joestu Line is broken up into 3 portions: City Section, Countryside Section, and Suburban Section (Referred simply to as Joestu Line on the system map).
