At-grade intersection between railways

When a plurality of railway lines intersect with each other, it may be an at-grade intersection because it costs a lot to make a grade separation.

There was a time when the original timetable from Incheon to Osaka Umeda was used to suspend some of the regular train express trains that departed from the north exit of Nishinomiya, and then use that timetable to transfer as a temporary express train from Incheon (Nishinomiya). It was clearly stated in the timetable of Kitaguchi Station and the timetable of Hankyu Railway issued in July 1993.[Annotation 3]).In other words, it was treated as a suspension at Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station, but there was a phenomenon that it was being operated east of Tsukaguchi Station.

Until 2006, the train from Umeda to Incheon was also in operation. Until the 1980s, it was operated at intervals of about 20 minutes in the morning, but this was abolished by the 1993 timetable revision.LaterSakura Flower Award-Takarazuka Memorialなどの阪神競馬場でのGI開催日の朝に限り3本のみ(梅田発8時37分・8時57分・9時17分)の運転となっていたが、利用客減少などの理由により、2006年10月28日のダイヤ改正で運行が中止された[17].

In addition, until the 50s, there were temporary express trains from Sannomiya or Rokko to Umeda on weekend evenings, but these are "express" 2 on the train type board on the front. Only letters were written, and there was no destination at all.

In addition, "Semi-expressWhen "" started operation, it was called "temporary express", and the train display board was also "temporary" with only two letters, but the stop station is different from the above "temporary", so to avoid confusion It was later renamed.


The display curtain also has a type of "temporary" (white letters in a red frame), but even if it is temporary, it is displayed as "normal", which is the same as a regular train (departure information board on the station platform). Is the same).

Driving on a holiday schedule in mid-AugustObonOnly during the period and on weekday mornings at the end of the year, the number of regular trains from Nishinomiya Kitaguchi to Osaka Umeda will be increased temporarily to alleviate congestion.Also,Naniwa Yodogawa Fireworks FestivalEven at night on the day of the event, the number of regular trains departing from Osaka Umeda to Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi will be increased (both are evacuated from limited express trains at Sonoda Station).

Until opening

In 1907, a ring road from Kobe to Kobe via Ashiya, Nishinomiya, and Mikage by Yamato Murano and others.Nada circulation electric orbitIs filed.However, the driver's license was granted only between Fukiai, Kobe City and Shibamura (Nishinomiya Station) on the mountain side.on the other hand,1910ToTakarazuka Main LineとMinoh LineWas openedMinoh Arima Electric OrbitIs for the purpose of connecting to the Nada circulation electric orbit and communicating between Hanshin.1913From Juso to Itami門戸I applied for a patent for the route leading up to.When the construction of the Nada Circulation Electric Railway failed due to the recession, the right to lay the Nada Circulation Electric Railway was taken over, and the Minoh Arima Electric Railway got the right to lay the track between Hanshin.Minoo-Arima Electric Orbit took this opportunity to pursue a short circuit of the route, and although it planned a route slightly south of the current route in Amagasaki City, it encountered the opposition of Itami City and as a compromise, the current route via Tsukaguchi Station. Calmed down.At the time of construction, he was running a shipping company in Osaka, but he is asking for financial assistance.[20].. In 1918, Minoh Arima Electric OrbitHanshin Express RailwayAnd changed the company name,1920Jusou Station-Kobe Station (later)Kamitsutsui Station, Currently located at 2-chome, Sakaguchi-dori, Chuo-ku, Kobe), and entered the Hanshinkan transportation.

The Kobe Main Line is the same as the Takarazuka Main Line, which was opened earlier.Orbit methodAlthough it was laid in compliance, it uses a straight line-based alignment over the entire line, so it is 25 mph (about 40), which is higher than the speed limit of 35 mph (about 56 km / h), which was the original speed limit of the law. Operation at km / h) was approved.Later, it was speeding up to 110 km / h in compliance with the Act on Rail Tracks.At the time of constructionWorld War IDue to the outbreak, the prices of materials such as steel are soaring, and it is the first in Japan to save the use of iron between Kanzakigawa Station and Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station.concreteMadeTelephone poleIt was adopted[Source required]..Furthermore, the distance between stations was also open in advance.Hanshin Main LineIt took longer, especially between Kanzakigawa Station and Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station, when it opened, there was only one station on the way, Tsukaguchi Station, and the average distance between the stations reached 1 km (later). Sonoda Station and Mukonoso Station were additionally opened due to housing development in the Showa period).

Transition after opening

At the time of opening, "It's beautiful and fast.A cool train with a nice view of Garaaki"catch copy[3]It takes 50 minutes (5 minutes for 60 days from the opening) between Umeda Station in Osaka and Kobe Station (later Kamitsutsui Station).[21], JNROsaka Station - Sannomiya StationIn the 51st minute, he had an advantage over the Hanshin Tigers in the 60th minute.On the other hand, Hanshin's catch phrase is "Hanshin Electric RailwayThat's right, I countered with the frequent operation of trains.

However, the Kobe Main Line at the time of its opening had problems with both the terminals on the Osaka side and the Kobe side.Umeda Station (currently Osaka Umeda Station) --between Jusou StationCombined trackIt was a bottleneck because it was on the Takarazuka Main Line, while Kobe Station was located in front of the center of Kobe City.The problem on the Osaka side is1926It will be resolved by the completion of the elevated line between the Kobe Main Line and the Takarazuka Main Line between Umeda Station and Jusou Station.On the other hand, the Kobe side wanted Hankyu to enter Sannomiya on an elevated track due to construction costs and underground structure problems, but the principle that the railway line that the Kobe City Council (currently Kobe City Council) would enter the city would be an underground line was broken. Construction was delayed because there was no (""Hanshin Express Electric Railway # Sannomiya elevated boarding turmoilSee also the item).After all, when the provincial line (currently JR Kobe Line) elevates the vicinity of Sannomiya Station, the city council leans toward the acceptance theory for the elevation.[22]In 1936, it was opened up to the current Kobe Sannomiya Station (Kobe Station at the time of its opening).After entering Sannomiya, Nishinada Station (currently Ojikoen Station) --For the old line between Kamitsutsui Station, the branch lineKamitsutsui LineUntil the abolition in 194090 typeA single-line return operation was carried out.

As with the opening of the Takarazuka Main Line, housing development was actively promoted along the railway lines.Around this time, not only Hankyu but also Ashiya Rokurokuso,Kansai landSuch asPrivate residential land developerAlso entered the development, as a resultItami-Nishinomiya Seven Gardens-Shukugawa-Rokuroso Town-MikageGood residential areas such as were formed along the railway lines, and later theseNew residential areaIt is,Luxury residential areaIt became.These developments also created their own culture and laterHanshin ModernismWill be called.

1938Occurred in FebruaryGreat Hanshin floodThen, the bridge girder of the Sumiyoshi River bridge has suffered enormous damage such as the outflow.Although it was once restored by a temporary line, it was cut off again due to the heavy rain that occurred on August 8 of the same year.This restoration was carried out in parallel with the improvement of the Sumiyoshi River, and the bridge girder used for the part that crosses the provincial line of Umeda Station is reused for the new Sumiyoshi River bridge.[23].

Start of high speed operation

Originally, the Kobe Main Line has fewer stations than the Hanshin Main Line, but in May 1922,Current collectorThe otherPrivate railwayPrior to this, the pole was replaced with a pantograph, and in December of the same year, the time required between Umeda Station and Kobe Station (later Kamitsutsui Station) was shortened to 12 minutes. In 40, by track between Umeda Station and Jusou StationMultiple lines-Dedicated trackIt took 35 minutes to complete the conversion, and on April 1930, 4, the powerful 1horsepowerClasselectric motor[Annotation 4]To install900 typeA new limited express will be set up that stops only at Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station on the way, and will be shortened to 30 minutes.The speed increase continued thereafter, with 1931 minutes in October 10 and 28 minutes in July 1934.[24], At Umeda station, in front of the stationKobe Yuki Express Train Platform"Limited express for Kobe XNUMX minutesI appealed with it.By the way, the nominal speed of this 25-minute drive between Umeda Station and Kobe Station is known for high-speed driving.Shin-Keihan Railway(AfterKeihan Electric RailwayShinkeihan Line → Hankyu RailwayKyoto Main Line)ofP-6 typeby"Super Express"Stated speed (Keihan Kyoto - Tenjin BridgeAt 34 km / h, which is higher than 30 km / h), driving for 73.7 minutes and 78.0 seconds.PrewarIn the record ofHanwa Electric Railwayof"Super ExpressIt was the second largest in Japan after 81.6 km / h recorded by.This is still the fastest limited express train on Hankyu. In April 2SannomiyaHigher output motor despite a slight increase in distance due to entry[Annotation 5]To install920 typeBy introducing, only Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station was stopped for 25 minutes.This limited express drivingPacific WarIt continued until 1944, when the war situation deteriorated.

From 1934Ministry of RailwaysWith the completion of electrification on the Tokaido Main Line operated byExpress trainThe operation of (Kyuden) has started, and it was connected between Osaka Station and Sannomiya Station in 24 minutes by no stop on the way.In Hanshin, in 1936MotomachiThe extension to the underground line has been realized, and the appeal is that "you can reach the center of Osaka / Kobe without straddling" by high-frequency operation.

From the time of opening to 1942, passengers traveling between Umeda Station and Jusou Station were required to use the Takarazuka Main Line train, and could not board the Kobe Main Line train.It is said that this is due to measures to completely separate the Takarazuka Main Line, which is a suburban line, and the Kobe Main Line, which is an intercity line.[By whom?].

Relationship with Hanshin Electric Railway

Between Osaka and Kobe, the Japanese National Railways has already opened.Tokaido Main Line(Saving line) andHanshin Electric RailwayMain lineThe former is mainly for medium- and long-distance use, and the latter is due to the large number of stations.High frequency drivingIt was segregated by.Nishinomiya ShrineIt was installed by Hankyu as a result of Hanshin Electric Railway, which was also engaged in the electric power business in the Hanshin area at that time, at the time of the festival.Nishinomiya Station(Temporary station) To the shrine, the origin of the current transfer transportation is that Hanshin operated a special train in the event of Hankyu's operation trouble, in order to compensate for the fact that all the street lights from) to the shrine went out.[Source required]..Also, under the Hanshin TigersSettsu Electric VehicleBy Koroen Station (currentlyKouen Station)- ParadiseNo track train (trolley bus) In the form of taking over the floor plan from the relationship of transportation capacity,Koyo LineIs under construction.

In the 40's of the Showa era after the war, the trains of both Hankyu and Hanshin began to go directly to the Kobe Rapid Transit Railway. 1995Great Hanshin-Awaji EarthquakeSince each company suffered great damage, it also serves as reconstruction support.Commuter PassRegarding the use of, only if you are using a magnetic commuter pass that includes between Umeda Station and Sannomiya Station (both at that time), you can use both Hankyu and Hanshin Umeda Station and Sannomiya Station, and Sannomiya Station-Kosoku Kobe. If you are using a commuter pass that includes between stations, each station on the Kobe Express Line from Sannomiya Station on both Hankyu and Hanshin to Kosoku Kobe Station (Hanakuma Station-Nishimotomachi Station-Motomachi Station), A system that allows you to get on and off each[25]Will be implemented from October 1996[26]The cooperation between the two companies has deepened further,Murakami FundAfter the purchase of Hanshin shares by the company, finally the management integration of the two companies resulted in "Hankyu Hanshin Holdings"and"Hankyu Hanshin Toho GroupWas born (Hankyu-Hanshin management integrationSee).

After the end of the war

The end of the warLater, in 1949, limited express operation on the Kobe Main Line was resumed.From this time on, all limited express trains stopped at Juso Station.[27]..The time required between Umeda Station and Kobe Station on the limited express was 1949 minutes at the beginning of operation in 30, and then approximately 28 minutes. In the 1993 timetable revision, the 25-minute range was maintained while the station was stopped only on weekdays.[Annotation 6]I realized the operation in.

1995May 1 OfGreat Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake(Hyogoken Nanbu Earthquake) By Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station-the viaduct between Shukugawa Station,Kobe Hankyu BuildingThe Kobe Main Line was severely damaged and was forced to operate provisionally.Since June 1995, when all lines have been restored, all limited express trains have been available.Okamoto StationIt came to stop at.This was a delay in the timetable revision scheduled for March of the same year.Responding to increased use of the station[Source required]During the daytime on weekdays, ordinary people were waiting for the limited express to pass at Rokko Station.[Annotation 7]The purpose was to eliminate the problem and shorten the normal time required.At the same time, a new train type is set up according to the demand during commuting hours.

In addition, along with Hanshin, which merged in October 2006, JR in March 10Sakura Shukugawa StationThe timetable was revised in response to the opening of the business, and the limited express stopped at Shukugawa Station on the Hankyu Kobe Main Line, and the connection with the Koyo Line was improved at that station.In addition, linearAutomatic train stop device Due to the improvement of (ATS) and the increase in the maximum speed between Kanzakigawa Station and Nishinomiya Kitaguchi Station during the daytime to 115 km / h, the limited express has increased the number of stops by one station. , Umeda Station-Sannomiya Station travel time reduced by 10 seconds-60 seconds, usually 30 seconds-80 seconds in the same section.

The time required between Osaka Umeda Station and Kobe Sannomiya Station on the current Kobe Main Line Limited Express is 27 minutes for both up and down (27 minutes 10 seconds up and 27:00 down), which is the fastest after the war in 1993. It is about 1 minute longer than the revised timetable.

Direct limited express with Kyoto Main Line

December 1949, 12, Kobe Station-Keihanshin Kyoto Station (currentlyOmiya Station) In the meantime, the direct limited express operation was started.At that time, the voltage of the Kyoto Main Line was 1500 V electrified, and that of the Kobe Main Line was 600 V electrified.800 series2 formationsDouble voltage carIt was decided to remodel it to and allocate it to direct trains.

The direct express stop is Nishinomiya North Exit, Jusou,Takatsuki-SaiinSo, instead of entering Umeda Station, we used the return line inside Juso Station to make a direct connection.[Annotation 8].

However, the number of passengers used throughout was small, and on October 1951, 10, the operation of the Keishin-ma direct limited express was abolished. In 8, the aboveDirect limited express to Arashiyama stationBegan to operate, and although it was a temporary train, it was virtually revived.

Direct operation with Sanyo Electric Railway

  • Since the start of direct operation, trains from the Hankyu side have been directly operated by limited express trains throughout the day, with a few exceptions.However, access to the Sanyo Electric Railway Line was limited to 6-car trains due to restrictions on the effective length of the platform (7-car trains are standard for limited express trains before the start of direct operation).
  • Even in the later 8-car train formation, the Sanyo Direct Express was limited to 6 cars.For this reason, trains in the morning and evening hours on weekdays, which require transportation capacity, have been added or released at Sannomiya Station since the revision in December 1970.
  • From the Sanyo Electric Railway side, in the daytime, two trains went directly to Rokko station per hour (the same goes for the Hanshin side, two trains went directly to Oishi station per hour).As a general rule, limited express trains also boarded from the Sanyo Electric Railway side (stops at each station on the Hankyu line), but there were also times when ordinary trains boarded.In terms of operation, it turned back on the pull-up line inside Mikage Station (Kobe Sannomiya).
  • In order to deal with the chronic shortage of limited express transportation capacity, from the revision on March 1984, 59, all Sanyo direct trains on holidays will be normal, and all limited express trains will depart and arrive at Shinkaichi Station and Kosoku Kobe Station. An 3-car train was formed (the limited express train departing from and arriving at Kosoku Kobe Station was a measure for Hanshin Electric Railway's vehicles to use the turnaround platform in Shinkaichi). From the revision on December 25, 8, all Sanyo direct trains during the daytime on weekdays (mainly from 1987:62 to 12:13) have become normal, and limited express trains departing from and arriving at Shinkaichi Station and Kosoku Kobe Station during the same time period are 9 Both trains were unified and the transportation capacity was increased.On the other hand, not all limited express trains departing from and arriving at Sumaura Koen Station were subject to the addition and release at Sannomiya Station, and on weekday mornings and evenings when the number of passengers was the highest, there were 15 limited express trains departing from and arriving at Sumaura Koen Station. There was also a situation where people were driven.
    • In the timetable at that time, trains operating in 6-car trains (including those other than limited express trains) were marked with "★".
  • 1995 (Heisei 7)Great Hanshin-Awaji EarthquakeAs a result, some sections were cut off, so direct access to the Sanyo Electric Railway Line was canceled.Direct access to the Sanyo Electric Railway Line was resumed in August of the same year, but limited express trains will be available all day on weekdays until 8:15 (normal only after 15:6) from Umeda Station (at that time) on Saturdays and holidays. Limited express trains departing from and arriving at Sumaura Koen Station and Higashi-Suma Station are now operated in 1998-car trains (some were added and released at Sannomiya Station), and continued until 10 (XNUMX) when direct operation was stopped. It was.
  • Currently, direct operation is not performed, but the driver's license was maintained as it was after that in order to correspond to the operation of temporary trains etc.[Annotation 9].

The problem that can be seen in this direct operation is that the transportation capacity of the company is restricted by entering another company's line.Hanshin Namba LineAfter the start of direct operationKintetsu Nara LineThis is a bottleneck that can be seen in combinations where there is a difference in the scale of both formations.

In December 2013, the mayor of KobeKizo HisamotoHas reportedly expressed its intention to consider a direct operation plan for the Hankyu Kobe Line and the Kobe Municipal Subway Seijin / Yamate Line.[43].

However, it is estimated that the effect obtained by a large investment is limited because JR, Hankyu, Hanshin, Sanyo Electric Railway, etc. operate in Kobe city and the convenience of east-west transportation is high. Although it will not be withdrawn, it has been decided to forgo commercialization for the time being[45].

The movement to set up a new station here is being enthusiastically developed by the residents of Nishinomiya City.Toward the establishment of a new station2000The "Hankyu Mukogawa Station Invitation Promotion Council" was formed in Japan, and a petition with a signature of more than 1 people was adopted by the Nishinomiya City Council.Tomo YamadaMayor Nishinomiya (at that time) showed motivation (2008May 12Remarks at the plenary session of the city council), Hankyu RailwayKazuo KadoThere was also a time when the president showed concrete movements, such as showing positive intentions.[47]However, the mayor changed due to the death of Mayor Satoru Yamada (Masahiro Kono) And so on, and after that, the movement stopped for a while.However,2012As Nishinomiya City has posted a survey fee for the establishment of a new station, it is beginning to move toward the establishment of a new station again.[48][49].
