    Finally met up with the guy who uses a firefly type (battery-powered handle-driven) attachment to his wheelchair at this year’s tennis tournament. I asked him about taking it on the train and he said that he hadn’t tried it.  He had heard of others that have used it on the trains, so it sounds like it might be possible.

    Just as a footnote, there were 2 or 3 guys that were using that type of device at this year’s tournament (not to play tennis, but to move around the facility), up from one last year, so they might be catching on in Japan.
