The section notation of this line is "" supervised by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.Railway handbook], There is "Kanazawa, Maibara"[1], Starting from Kanazawa Station and ending at Maibara Station, but "JR West Japan as seen from data" published by JR West[4]Then, "Hokuriku Line Maibara-Kanazawa km (km) 176.6" is described, and "Hokuriku Main Line Maibara-Kanazawa" and "Hokuriku Main Line Up Kanazawa-Yonehara" are also described in commercial timetables. , Indicates the distanceKm postIs also the starting point of Maibara (Latter sectionSee also).

Therefore, in this section as well, following the description in the timetable etc., the section notation order is "Maibara Station → Kanazawa Station (→Naoetsu Station) ”, And the vertical direction is also described as going down from“ Maibara Station → Kanazawa Station ”and going up from“ Kanazawa Station → Maibara Station ”.

Official starting and ending stations

This line was established during the JNR eraJapanese National Railways track nameThen Maibara station was the starting point and Naoetsu station was the ending point.[13][14][15]However, from April 1987, 62 (Showa 4)Privatization of the national railway divisionAs a result, when JR West took over this line, Naoetsu Station will be the starting point and Maibara Station will be the ending point (it will be the current section when the Hokuriku Shinkansen Kanazawa Station extension opens on March 2015, 27). The starting and ending stations are the opposite of those of the JNR era.[1][16]..This was at the time of privatizationMinistry of TransportIt is based on the "Business Basic Plan" submitted to Tsuruga Port, which states "from Naoetsu to Maibara and from Tsuruga to Tsuruga Port" (currently "from Kanazawa to Maibara").[16][Annotation 3].

However, in the above-mentioned "JR West Japan seen from data" and "JR line name announcement" announced by JR companies, Maibara station is the starting point and Kanazawa station is the ending point, and railway hobby magazines and books are Hokuriku. Main line "between Maibara and Kanazawa" etc.[17][18][19][20][21][Annotation 4]Therefore, the notation of the starting and ending stations is reversed in documents submitted to government offices and in books for the general public.

Formal sections of railway lines, business kilometers, etc.beginningBased on the description in the "Railway Handbook" and the above-mentioned "Business Basic Plan", the starting station will be Kanazawa Station and the ending station will be Maibara Station.[1]..The line name is not the Hokuriku Main Line but the Hokuriku Line.On the other hand, in the commercial timetables, "Down Hokuriku Main Line Maibara-Kanazawa", "Up Up Hokuriku Main Line Kanazawa-Yonehara" (JR timetable), And the customary line name / section notation starting from Maibara Station from the JNR era is adopted.


This section describes the history and history of the entire Hokuriku Main Line from Nagahama Station-Tsuruga Minato Station, which was constructed as a public railway, including subsequent transportation improvement measures.


The entire Hokuriku Main Line was constructed as a public railway. Nagahama Station-Yanagase Station and Dodoguchi Station (later Dodo West Exit Station)-Tsuruga Port Station (at that time: Kanegasaki Station) opened on March 1882, 3.[23]..The section between Kinomoto Station and Tsuruga Station was originally planned to be via Shiozu, but it was laid via Yanagase Station.This is the intention to lay a connecting line between Yanagase Station and Imajō Station, and the steepest slope is 37 if it is originally via Shiotsu (Omi-Shiotsu Station) along the Shiotsu Highway.‰On the other hand, if it is via Yanagase Station along the Hokkoku Highway, it will be 25 ‰, which is a result of appealing the change because there were reasons such as a gentle slope and an advantage in construction.[23].Yanagase tunnelExcavation work was difficult, and Yanagase Station-Dongdo West Exit Station was on foot, but the tunnel opened on April 1884, 4, and Nagahama Station-Tsuruga Minato Station was fully connected.[23].. In 1889, the section between Maibara Station and Nagahama Station opened. When the line name was decided in 1895, between Maibara Station and Tsuruga StationTokaido LineWas part of[24].. In addition,Tsuruga PortOpened in 1899 as an international portRussiaTrains that connect to regular routes to the continent have come to be operated.After that, after the twists and turns described later, with the switch to the new line via Omi-Shiotsu Station in 1957, the line settled down as originally planned.

In extending to Fukui, Kanazawa, and Toyama, construction with private capital was planned due to financial difficulties of the government, but due to the recession, funds were not collected and the company was not established, and a temporary diploma for railway construction was subsidized. Although it was rowed up to, construction could not be started due to internal conflict, so it was eventually decided to construct a public railway north of Tsuruga, and construction was started in 1893.

1896 Tsuruga Station-opened between Fukui Station, was named the Hokuriku Line in the same year. At this time, avoid the steep mountainous area between Tsuruga Station and Imajo Station on the sea side.Sugitsu StationAlthough it was constructed via, the steep slope of 25‰ and 12 tunnels and 4 tunnelsSwitchbackBecame a continuous difficulty. The route was so-called "cecum of the Hokuriku Line", but the beauty of the line scenery isRailway songI was even told to. of timeEmperor TaishoThere is an anecdote that the train stopped at Sugitsu station when he made a pilgrimage, and enjoyed the view of Tsuruga Bay spreading out for a while below.

The line was further extended and opened to Toyama Station in 1899. Toyama station at that timeJinzu RiverSince there was a plan for the replacement (Echietsu Line), it was installed at the Tagariya on the left bank of the Jinzu River until the completion of the Jinzu River Bridge in 1903 after the Jinzu River was replaced in 1908.

Toyama Station-Between Naoetsu Station Toyama Line (Toyama East Line, Toyama West Line) was built as. On the way, it is said to be the biggest difficulty in HokurikuWisdom toothPass the coast. In addition, between Mikkaichi (currently Kurobe) station and Tomari station, a route through Aimoto (currently Akimoto Unazuki-cho, Kurobe city) was being considered, but due to the slope, etc. It will be built on the sea side via Nirzen station[25]. When the track name was established in 1909, the area between Maibara Station and Uozu Station was designated as the Hokuriku Main Line, and then it was opened as the Hokuriku Main Line to Itoigawa Station, and the area between Itoigawa Station and Naoetsu StationShinetsu LineOpened as part of. The last Aomi station in 1913-with the opening of the Itoigawa station between Maibara station and Naoetsu station became the Hokuriku main line.

Since the transportation capacity increased after passing through the whole road, route improvement such as easing the gradient and double track became an issue.

The area between Kinomoto Station and Tsuruga Station is a steep slope section of the old standard in the early days of railway construction, including the Yanagase Tunnel, which was the first excavation of dynamite in Japan. There were frequent accidents involving slipping and suffocation in the tunnel. In particular, it was decided to lay a new line via Fukasaka after the suffocation accident in the Yanagase tunnel in December 1928. Although the construction was temporarily interrupted during the war, it resumed in 12 as the first post-war five-year plan. What will be interrupted again by the recession in 5 Kinomoto station-was switched to a new line between Tsuruga station via Omi Shiotsu. At this time, the old line in the same sectionYanagase LineIs separated as. After that, the Yanagase line is a diesel vehicle equipped with two engines for the grade sectionKiha 52Although it was put in, it was not possible to get out of the deficit line, and it was abolished in 1964 because of the roadbed provision for the double track of the Hokuriku Main Line parallel running section. For details, refer to the relevant item.

Continued as a second five-year plan Tsuruga Station-embarked on an improvement work between Imajo Station. In 5, the total length of 1962mHokuriku tunnelWas opened, and the line between Tsuruga Station and Imajo Station was switched to a new line, and the old line via Sugitsu Station was abolished while recording no accidents.Hokuriku tunnel, See the section of each station on the old line).

Currently, most of the old line routes between Kinomoto Station-Tsuruga Station-Imajo StationHokuriku ExpresswayIs passing. Both Tone (down) and Sugizu (up) parking areas are the former station ruins. Due to this line change, the area near Nakanogo Station and Imajo Station, which were formerly express train stations, became lonely and Sugitsu Station was abolished.Echizen coastThe station that stopped at was lost. Recording films for the Yanagase and Sugizu sections were rediscovered in 2004 and edited by the JR West Kanazawa branch.DVDHas been converted.

On the other hand, there are voices of elderly people who are sorry for the loss of the scenic coastline.

ElectrificationandDouble trackThe conversion was also promoted in sequence. In 1957, the section between Tamura Station and Tsuruga Station was electrified, and in 1969, electrification and double tracking of all lines were completed.AC 60 for electrification between Tamura Station and Kajiyashiki StationHzWas adopted, butAC electrificationasSenzan LineSecond in Japan, 2Hz is the first in Japan.

Transport improvement

This section describes the history and history of transportation improvement in each section of the Hokuriku Main Line for each section.

Maibara Station-Improved transportation between Tsuruga Station

In this sectionAboveFor the above reasons, the route was via the old Yanagase Line, but we will explain the improvement of transportation in the section due to the subsequent electrification.

Construction of Yanagase Line detour route

1889(MeijiFor a long time since it was connected to the Tokaido Main Line at Maibara Station in 22, most of the regular trains were long-distance trains between Maibara Station and Tsuruga Station and north of it, meeting local demand in this section. It wasn't a thing.ShowaEarly onOmi Railway(Maibara Station- Hikone StationGasoline car to counter the opening of the bus route between Maibara Station and Nagahama StationKihani 5000 typeAnd thenKihani 36450 typeWas being driven.

Maibara Station- Tamura StationThe person in betweensteam locomotiveLaterDiesel locomotiveThe locomotive was being exchanged at Tamura Station, towed by. In the olden days, ordinary trains that were directly connected to Osaka and Nagoya began and ended at Maibara Station due to the conversion of Tokaido Line ordinary trains to trains, but they were operated with long trains of passenger cars pulled by locomotives.Osaka StationAnd Tokyo (Sumidagawa Station) DirectlyPostal car,Luggage carThere were many things that connected. In addition, even after the abolition of the Yanagase Line, some of the diesel trains that connected Hikone Station-Nakanogo Station were operated to Hikone Station, centering on the section trains between Yonehara Station and Kinomoto Station.

On the other hand, in the Hubei area, the bus network was developed because the Hokuriku Main Line did not mainly use local transportation.JNR busHas a branch office in Kinomoto, and in addition to the alternative line for abolishing trains on the Yanagase line, it had lines to Meishin Maibara, Tsuruga, and Omi Imazu at its peak. In addition, the Ohmi Railway (bus) operated at high frequency every 20 minutes between Maibara-Nagahama-Kinomoto. After that, the bus network was reduced and withdrawn one after another triggered by the conversion to direct current in Nagahama, and many started from stations.Community busIt is only changed to and remains.

DC conversion of some sections

19747/20The Kosei Line opened in Japan, and three round-trip regular trains directly connected to the Kosei Line between Omi-Shiotsu Station and Tsuruga Station began to be operated by diesel trains, but the number of trains was small and the connection with the Hokuriku Line trains was poor. Many passenger cars and regular trains19853/14Amendment ofAC/DC train Of475-419 seriesAlthough it was replaced by a train, it was not possible to make a new AC / DC train for local use due to the difference in electrification method for a long time, and the number of local trains on the Hokuriku Line was small, so it was inconvenient to change trains at Tokaido Line and Maibara Station. It was. Also, driving a diesel train to Hikone Station19893/11It was abolished due to the special rapid service to and from Maibara Station.

Therefore, as a means to revitalize the regionKeihanshinNew rapid direct operation fromShigaとNagahamaPlans mainly, depending on the local burden of expenses19919/14Between Maibara Station and Nagahama StationDC electrificationIt was switched to. this isSakata station --The AC / DC that was installed between Tamura StationDead sectionNagahama Station- Torahime StationIt was relocated in the meantime to allow DC trains to enter Nagahama Station. As a result, the increase in the number of trains has brought about effects such as an increase in tourists and an increase in the local population, and has achieved great results. Due to the direct current conversion to Nagahama Station, the section operation to Kinomoto Station was replaced by trains, and the number of trains was increased. Later, part of the section operation was extended to Omi-Imazu Station as part of the Lake Biwa Ring Road concept, and direct operation with the northern section of the Kosei Line began. furtherFukuiとTsurugaPlans to convert to Tsuruga Station for the purpose of attracting tourists, 20069The electrification method was changed to direct current, and from October 10st of the same year, the special rapid service was directly connected from Keihanshin, and it continues to the present day.

To realize the Lake Biwa Loop Line concept, which is another purpose of DC conversion to Tsuruga Station, the special rapid service departing from and arriving at Tsuruga Station via the Kosai Line and the special rapid service via Omi-Shiotsu Station turnaround Yonehara Station will be connected in a short time by transferring to the same platform. The timetable was set to be. In addition to one new express train per hour, there are trains between Yonehara Station / Nagahama Station-Omi-Shiotsu Station / Tsuruga Station in some time zones, and in the Hubei area, 1 trains per hour except in some time zones. There was one train per hour between Omi-Shiotsu Station and between Hubei and Hubei, but some trains were abolished or special trains (only on Saturdays and holidays) due to the revision on March 1, 1. ) Has been changed. At each station north of Nagahama StationHomeHas been maintained. For direct current125 seriesAdditional trains (conventional)Obama LineThis section is directly connected to Keihanshin due to the new type of 521 series train for both AC and DC (common operation of private cars and additional cars including the Obama Line).223 seriesIt will be operated in both the local and local formats.

In addition, regarding local transportation related to this section after JR, the local government is actively implementing measures such as station building and station square maintenance, local government public relations to promote the use, and measures to attract tourists from Keihanshin. Most of the DC conversion work is borne by the local community, and while promoting its use, JR West has been requested to increase the number of direct currents. Furthermore, in the same section, there are trains that are completed within the Hokuriku Main Line (in addition, trains that enter the Kosei Line from Omi-Shiotsu Station and operate only north of Omi-Shiotsu Station) and trains that enter the Biwako Line from Yonehara Station (in addition to Omi-Shiotsu Station). The odd and even numbers of the trains are reversed between the trains that enter the Kosei Line and also operate south of Omi-Shimazu Station. This is because the former matches the train numbers in the vertical direction of the Hokuriku Line with respect to the starting point of Maibara Station, and the latter aligns the train numbers in the vertical direction of the Biwako Line (JR Kyoto Line).

Tsuruga Station-Improved transportation between Imajō Station

Kurikara Station-Improved transportation between Isurugi Station

Ichiburi Station-Improved transportation between Aomi Station

Parent ignorance / child ignoranceThis section that runs along is a disaster-prone section,192290 people were killed near the Katsuyama tunnel between Oyashirazu Station and Aomi Station.Hokuriku Line train avalanche direct hit accidentIs occurring. Therefore, when double-tracking, Ichiburi Station-Oyashirazu Station will construct a new line including the Oyashirazu Tunnel (new) and abandon all the old lines, and Oyashirazu Station-Oyashirazu Station will have a new Koshirazu Tunnel dedicated to the up line on the mountain side. It was constructed and double-tracked by converting the old line to the down line.

Of these, between Ichiburi Station and Oyashirazu Station, which were accompanied by railroad relocation, between 1965 (Ichiburi Station and Oyashirazu Station) and 1966 (between Ichiburi Station and Oyashirazu Station), with the wind wave signal box in the middle as the boundary. Double lines were carried out twice. In addition, about the wind wave signal box-Oyashirazu station, laterHokuriku Expressway(Wisdom IC) Was diverted as a site.

Between Oyashirazu Station and Aomi Station, on September 1965, 9, a new Kuroiwa signal box was constructed near the Aomi side wellhead of the Katsuyama Tunnel from Yonehara, 30 km from Aomi Station, and at the same time, the eastern part was double-tracked by increasing the number of lines. Implementation, between Oyashirazu Station and Kuroiwa Signal Station, at the same time, the newly constructed up line (Shinko Shiranu Tunnel) was temporarily used as a single track. On September 1.1, 1966, the old line was dedicated to going down, and the tunnels were strengthened with a lock shed and electrified to start operation again, achieving double tracking. Electrification was implemented as of September 9, 30, when the single-track section remained.

Uramoto Station-Improved transportation between Naoetsu Station

In this section, which has a non-electrified single-track section that remains until the end, the conventional route will continue geologically in the future.LandslideDamage was expected, the influence of waves etc. to run near the coast and electrification equipmentSalt damageHowever, it cannot be ignored, and it is very difficult to secure a double-tracked site because it passes through a narrow topographical place, so the route of this section is swayed to the mountain side and a straight tunnel exits. I was sought.

As a result, between Uramoto and Nou, the Uramoto tunnel and Mokpo tunnel, and between Nou and NadachiKubiki tunnel, Nadachima-Arimagawa is a Nadachi tunnel, Arimagawa-Tanihama is a Nagahama tunnel (new), and Tanihama-Naoetsu is a Yuden tunnel. Each station has also been forced to relocate, and Nou Station and Nadachi Station are set up on the mountain side of the conventional line using the light section between the tunnels, and Tsutsuishi Station without a suitable light section also serves as a security management role. It was installed in the tunnel. In addition, Gozu station has been abolished without installing an alternative station.

Construction of tunnels such as the Kubiki Tunnel and electrified double-track construction1966(Showa 41) Construction started in March,1969(44)9/29The new line switching section between Uramoto Station and Naoetsu Station has been shortened by a total of 2.4km.[26].. Of the old lines, Uramoto-TanihamaNiigata Prefectural Road 542 Joetsu Itoigawa Bicycle Road Line, Tanihama-Naoetsu was diverted as a widening site for Route 8.

ParallelShinkansenBecause there was no, there was a direction to Osaka/Nagoya and Niigata/Echigo Yuzawa (Joetsu ShinkansenThere were many express trains operating in the direction of Tokyo).

From the revision on March 1975, 3, limited express trains departing/arriving at Osaka StationKosai LineIt became possible to shorten the time required for the Kinki and Hokuriku regions. Occasionally on the Kosai LineHira gratedThere may be a suspension of driving due to strong winds, etc. In this case, the limited express via the Kosei line will also be operated via Maibara station. Meanwhile, after the opening of the Kosai LineTokaido ShinkansenLimited express "KaetsuWas newly established. This "Kakoshi" was integrated into "Shirasagi" on October 2003, 10, and one limited express train to the Maibara and Nagoya areas is operating every hour. on the other handJoetsu Linevia"Hakuta"WhenShin-Etsu Main Linevia"HakusanThe limited express train connecting Hokuriku and Tokyo, which was being driven by, is the Joetsu Shinkansen,Hokuhoku LineTo Echigo Yuzawa due to the opening ofHakutaIt was operated once per hour.

In addition, this "Kitaguni" was also responsible for the delivery of luggage and mail between Nagoya and the Hokuriku region during the passenger car era when there were connections between the postal and luggage cars, and was also a midnight train between Nagoya and the Hokuriku region. After conversion to a train, the luggage postal car is not connected, but "Kigakuni" was operating via Maibara Station and connected to Nagoya until the regular operation was completed on March 2012, 3 with the timetable revision. ..
