Japan Railway News

Ōigawa Railway (大井川鐵道) restarted local train operation of Ōigawa Line (大井川本線) on Friday, August 28, 2020 between Ieyama Station (家山, Shizuoka) and Senzu Station (千頭, Shizuoka), which has been disrupted because the Oigawa revetment was damaged due to the effects of the continuous heavy rain.

It should be noted that the section between Shimoizumi Station and Tanokuchi Station was temporarily restored, where the revetment damage occurred, so substitute bus operation may be resumed depending on the river conditions of the Oigawa River.

Please check yourself the official website by Oigawa Railway for the operating status of “Thomas the Tank Engine” and Steam Locomotives “Kawaneji”.
