Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photos if you need help reading this poster. I noticed it at a Tokyo train station on a trip there last December. 東急線 is the name of a train line there.  Click on the photo to enlarge it and see the characters more clearly.

When I read this, at first I imagined an adult was there waiting for the child before sending an email to the parents but actually, this system, run by the train company, which has access to the information on the electronic train pass, works automatically.  An email is sent by the system when the child touches the pass to the scanner on the ticket wicket.

The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
