History: The Taki 25000 is a high-pressure tank car for Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG).

タキ25000はLPガス用タンク車、要するに液化石油ガス用のタンク車です。途方もなく長大なタンク体を有しますが、何分にも積み荷はガスですから25tしか積めないと言う代物です。圧力の高いガス状態の積荷を運ぶために、17m級の車体を有していながら25tしか積むことが出来ない車輛です。タキとなる車輛は積載荷重25t以上で、25tを割り込めばタサになってしまう、軽い方の限度一杯の車輛です。以前は、浮島の方に行くとこの車輛ばかりが目に付いて鬱陶しいので好きではなかったのですが、気がついたらアッと言う間に全廃されていました。人の世の栄枯盛衰を感じさせますなぁ。

Railroad/Company:
Japan Freight Railway Company (日本貨物鉄道株式会社 Nihon Kamotsu Tetsudō Kabushiki-gaisha), or JR Freight (JR貨物 Jeiāru Kamotsu), is one of the constituent companies of Japan Railways Group (JR Group). It provides transportation of cargo nationwide. Its headquarters are in Shibuya, Tokyo near Shinjuku Station.

The Japan Railways Group was founded on April 1, 1987, when Japanese National Railways (JNR) was privatized, and then divided into six regional companies and Japan Freight Railway Company. Although the passenger operation of JNR was split into six companies, fares and regulations are standard for all companies and every region of Japan except Okinawa is covered by the railway network spanning approximately 19,800 kilometres (12,300 mi).

Formerly part of JNR, the freight operation was not divided and became a single separate company when JNR was privatized and split. Although it has only about fifty kilometers of track of its own, it also operates on track owned by the JR passenger railways and other companies. The company uses the initials JRF as an abbreviated name for identification.
