The Miyazu Line (, Miyazu-sen) is a railway line of the Kitakinki Tango Railway in Kyoto Prefecture and Hy?go Prefecture, Japan. Trains on the line are operated by Willer Trains Inc. as part of its Kyoto Tango Railway system.

The Miyamai Line (, Miyamai-sen) and the Miyatoyo Line (, Miyatoyo-sen) are the aliases assigned by Willer Trains to the sections of the line.

History

A train at Amino station derailed by the 1927 North Tango earthquake

The Nishi-Maizuru - Miyazu section was opened in 1924 by the Japanese Government Railway, and extended west progressively, reaching Amino in 1926.

The Toyooka - Kumihama section opened in 1929, the Amino - Tango-Kanno section in 1931, and the line was completed in 1932 with the opening of the Kumihama - Tango-Kanno section

Freight services ceased in 1985, and in 1990 the Kitakinki Tango Railway commenced operating the line. It electrified the Amanohashidate - Miyazu section in 1996, enabling EMU services from the Miyafuku Line to service Amanohashidate Station.

On April 1, 2015, the train operation business of Kitakinki Tango Railway was transferred to Willer Trains, Inc., which named the railway system the Kyoto Tango Railway.[1] At this time, the aliases Miyamai Line and Miyatoyo Line were assigned to the line.[2]

Former connecting lines

  • Nodagawa station - The Kaya Railway Co. opened a 6 km line to its namesake town in 1926. In 1942 the line was extended 3 km to the Oeyama nickel mine, and a 4 km extension from Nodagawa to Iwataki built to service an ore treatment plant. Both extensions closed in 1946, and the original line closed in 1985.
