It is nothing new for one schoolgirl in Hokkaido, Japan, who, for the past three years, has reportedly been the only passenger to use the 7.04am and 5.08pm trains that pass through the remote Kami-Shirataki station.
The story goes, that three years ago, the Hokkaido Railway Co was set to close the station as its remote location meant it was almost entirely unused.
After learning that there remained a single student who still used the service for her daily travel to high school, the company decided to keep the station open until she graduated in March this year.
More generous still is that the company adjusted the train timetable to fit in with the unnamed student's school schedule.
However a contrasting report by Singapore newspaper The Straits Times suggests the happy tale may have been slightly embellished.
Quoting the Taiwan Apple Daily, the newspaper said the student actually took the train from Kyu-Shirataki Station, with more than 10 schoolmates at 7.15am, and that they had a choice of three trains for their return journey at the end of each day.
The Taiwanese media outlet confirmed that Japan Railways would close three underused stations by March this year, but the decision to do so may not have been related to the student's graduation date.
