Tohoku Main Line

Tohoku Main Line(Tohokuhonsen) isTokyoChiyoda Ward OfTokyo StationからIwateMorioka OfMorioka StationTieEast Japan Railway(JR East)Railway line(Main line).

Main line (Capital AreaThen.Nippori Sta. - Kaminakazato Station - Akabane Station - Urawa Station - Omiya Stationwhile[† 3], In the Sendai areaNagamachi Station - Sendai Station - Higashi Sendai StationIn addition to (via), Nippori Station- Oku Station --Between Akabane Station[† 4], Akabane Station- Musashi Urawa Station --Between Omiya Station (Saikyo Line(Part of), Nagamachi Station-between Higashi-Sendai Station (commonly known as:Miyagino Freight Line),Iwakiri Station - Rifu StationBetween (commonly known as:Rifu Line) Has branch lines, and the official name of these lines is the Tohoku Main Line.[1].. In addition,2015 Opened inMatsushima Station --Sengoku LineTakashirocho StationConnection line betweenSengoku Line/Tohoku Main Line connecting line) Is also treated as a part of the Tohoku Line[2].

In a broad senseTohoku ShinkansenMay be included in the Tohoku Line[1][† 5]However, in this itemConventional lineI will describe the Tohoku Line as.For the Shinkansen, see "Tohoku ShinkansenWith the Shinkansen line articles such as ", details of each area of ​​the conventional line, and the extension of the Tohoku Shinkansen to Hachinohe and Shin-Aomori."Third sector railwaySee also the following article for the area north of Morioka Station that was transferred to.


The Tohoku Line was originallyJapan RailwayOn the line constructed byUeno StationからAomori StationAnd the railroad tracks to Ueno StationAkihabara StationJapan's longest line consisting of freight lines that short-circuit betweenOperating kiloIt was a line with.TokyoとAomoriBetweenUrawa / Omiya-Utsunomiya-Koriyama-Fukushima-Sendai-Ichinoseki-Morioka-HachinoheIt is connected viaKanto regionInlandTohoku regionIt was a line that crossed the inland area.The coastal section on the wayIwanuma - MatsushimaAnd north of Hachinohe.

1891 (Meiji24 years), all lines opened, then1925 (Taisho14 years)Yamanote LineIt was laid at the start of the circular operationTokyo Station --Between Akihabara StationTrain lineWas also incorporated into the Tohoku Main Line, making it the longest line in Japan with an operating kilometer of 739.2km.Second World WarAfter the endHigh economic growthLong-distance in the periodLimited express-Express trainWas significantly increased,1982 (Showa57 years)Tohoku Shinkansen OfOmiya Station - Morioka StationWhen the interval opened, long-distance trains shifted to operation via the Shinkansen, and parallel Tohoku Main Line conventional line trains were replaced by medium-distance trains.Passenger transportation on the Tohoku Main Line has shifted to a system centered on regional transportation, and there are no regular passenger trains running on all lines, and limited express trains are operating between Kurihashi Station-Iwanuma Station and Sendai Station-Morioka Station. No.2002 (Heisei14) On December 12st, the Shinkansen between Morioka Station and Hachinohe Station opened.2010 (22) Hachinohe Station on December 12th- Shin-Aomori StationThe Tohoku Main Line conventional line, which is open for a while and runs parallel to that section, is from JR EastThird sectorCompany (Morioka Station- Mitoki StationBetweenIGR Iwate Galaxy Railway, Metoki Station-between Aomori StationAomori Railway) Was transferred to management.As a result, the Tohoku Main Line conventional line has a total length of 535.3km (excluding branch lines) between Tokyo Station and Morioka Station.San'in Main Line-Tokaido Main LineIt became the third longest conventional line after.

In addition to passenger trains on the Tohoku Main Line, the Tokyo metropolitan area and various areas along the lineHokkaidoOf JR Freight connectingfreight trainIs also in operationSumidagawa Station - Sapporo Freight Terminal StationThe space is also metaphorically referred to as the "northern aorta."[4]..Many freight trains go through the Tokaido Main Line to Tokaido / Sanyo / Kyushu, and IGR Iwate Ginga Railway Line / Aoimori Railway Line /Kaikyo LineIt is directly connected to the Hokkaido area via.

The electrification method isTochigi OfKuroiso StationIn the south of the stationDC electrification (1500 V), north ofAC electrification (20 kV, 50 Hz), ordinary trains are DC trains south of Kuroiso Station, and between Kuroiso Station and Shirakawa Station.AC/DC train, North of Shin-Shirakawa StationAC trainAre used respectively (Vehicle usedSee section).The only conventional line passenger trains that operate beyond Kuroiso Station are temporary trains, and there are no regular passenger trains.

The starting point on the name of the Tohoku Main Line has been Tokyo Station since 1925, and that station is1991 Since then, it has been the starting point of the Tohoku Shinkansen, but some medium- and long-distance passenger trains called "Tohoku Main Line" in passenger information and timetables before the 1960s.Tokaido Line(Tokaido Main Line) Tokyo for many years, except for direct trainsTaitoIt was operated starting from Ueno Station (Latter sectionSee). Also1968 Until September 9 between Omiya Station and Akabane Stationnational railroad(Keihin Tohoku Line) and the train shared the same track, but on October 10st, the train line and the train line were separated, and the current operation on another system was completed.The train line between Tokyo Station and Ueno Station is to secure land by extending the Tohoku Shinkansen Tokyo Station.1973 A short-distance train in the suburbs of Tokyo that runs on the train line after that (as a driving system)center lane-Yamanote Line-Keihin Tohoku Line) Only[1] However, from 42, 2015 years after the abolition, the train line of the same section was laid again.Ueno Tokyo LineAs with the Tokaido LineMutual direct operationHas been resumed.

Starting point of the Tohoku Line

The starting point on the Tohoku Main Line is1925 Since (Taisho 14)Tokyo StationIn Although,1885 From the opening of (Meiji 18) to 1925, the first station of the Tohoku Main Line conventional line train wasUeno StationIt was.Ueno Station for freight transportation- Akihabara StationA freight line was laid between them, but this section was originallyEdoPassenger trains first arrived in 1925, partly because the railroads were avoided in the downtown area.Yamanote LineTo perform the current circular operationTrain lineUntil then, the Yamanote Line was operated from Ueno Station as the first and last station.In addition, four years later1928 (Showa 3) is the currentUtsunomiya LineThe Tohoku Main Line train line has opened as a double track between Tokyo Station and Ueno Station, and the line has started from Tokyo Station in both name and reality.After the war, the trains on the Tohoku Main Line are basic due to the conversion of train lines between Tokyo Station and Ueno Station to single lines and forwarding lines, and the abolition of direct trains to the Tokaido Main Line due to the division of train lines in 1973 (Showa 48). Departs and arrives at Ueno Station.After that, Ueno stationNorth terminalAs a result, it has a history as the first and last station of trains heading to the Tohoku / Shinetsu region and the northeastern part of the Kanto region.Capital AreaIn addition to medium-distance trains, Joban Limited Express"Hitachi" and "Tokiwa"Etc. depart and arrive at the Ueno station platform.

After that, the service section of the Tohoku Main Line medium-distance train was extended toward Tokyo Station and Shinagawa Station, and became the Tokaido Main Line.Mutual direct operationPlan to do[15],2015 From March 27, 3, "Ueno Tokyo LineThe train line is also operated via Tokyo Station, which is the original starting point of the Tohoku Main Line.[Press 1].

In the peak period before electrification, 15 direct trains that straddle Kuroiso Station were set up every day (including regular trains that connect honor passenger cars and night trains).1959 After DC electrification south of Kuroiso Station and AC electrification north of the station, the number of flights will be reduced to 8 round trips every day.1965 -1968 The state-of-the-art limited express and express trains at that time (483 series-455 series-485 series-583 series) Was introduced one after another, and the number of long-distance limited express trains and express trains was increased.Even so, in the era when the operation of ordinary trains by passenger cars was left, several direct ordinary trains (both passenger car ordinary trains) were set every day mainly in the morning and noon.1978 May 10Due to the significant increase in the number of limited express and express trains due to the revision of the timetable, the operation of regular passenger trains between Ueno Station and Kuroiso Station has disappeared, and the regular trains that straddle Kuroiso Station are of the express "Nasuno". Only trains between Ueno Station and Shirakawa Station, which are operated in time, disappeared completely after that.afterwards,1982 May 6The Tohoku Shinkansen opened in Japan, and limited express trains and express trains running on the Tohoku Main Line conventional lines were gradually switched to operation via the Shinkansen, and medium-distance regular trains were added to the vacant conventional lines.

現在、旅客が黒磯駅を跨いで普通列車を利用する場合は、同駅において同駅以南で運行される直流電車と同駅以北で運行される交直流電車との相互乗り換えが必要となっているが、普通列車の本数および所要時間に関しては、客車時代に比べて利便性が高くなっている。電化後も含め、客車による長距離普通列車が運行されていた時代の上野 - 仙台間の所要時間は9時間30分から10時間30分程度かかっていたが、2015年には途中駅で乗り換えが必要ではあるものの、同区間の所要時間は概ね6時間15分から40分程度、遅くても7時間30分以内に短縮された。しかし黒磯駅構内直流化に先立って行われた2017年10月の改正後は所要時間が増加した乗り継ぎ例もある[† 10].

Honor train

Tohoku Shinkansen opened1982 Previously, the Tohoku Main Line conventional line was the main route from Tokyo to Tohoku / Hokkaido, and many long-distance honor trains were operated to connect cities along the line.After the partial opening of the Shinkansen, long-distance trains in parallel sections became the center of operation via the Shinkansen, and some trains headed to cities such as Aizuwakamatsu and Yamagata via this line.Shinkansen direct expressExcept for the fact that it has evolved into, the operation mode has been changed to one that connects from each Shinkansen stop such as Koriyama Station, but there are still limited express trains that connect from the end of the Shinkansen to Aomori and Hokkaido. It was.Eventually, due to the opening of all lines of the Tohoku Shinkansen,Morioka StationWhen all the areas north of JR were separated from JR East, the only excellent trains operating via conventional lines were trains destined for other lines via this line, which continues to this day.
