Japanese private railways

Perhaps it seems odd that this requires a glossary item of its own but it is not quite as simple as it seems. This term is typically used to refer to those Japanese private railways that have always been private ie not the JRs, and are not in receipt of subsidy ie not the so-called Third Sector. Sometimes the 15 largest private railways are referred to as the "major" private railways.
