The Enshū Railway Line, officially the Railway Line (鉄道線 Tetsudō-sen?), is a Japanese railway line in Shizuoka Prefecture, running north from Shin Hamamatsu, Naka Ward through Nishi Kajima, Tenryū Ward, all within Hamamatsu. This is the only railway line Enshū Railway (Entetsu) operates. The line has a nickname Nishi Kajima Line (西鹿島線 Nishi Kajima-sen?), while locals often call it Akaden (あかでん, "The Red Train"), referring to the color of the EMUs. The line accepts NicePass, a smart card ticketing system, as well as ET Card, a magnetic card ticketing system. The first segment of the line opened on December 6, 1909, and the extension was completed on September 1, 1927.

Railway signalling on this line is automatic.
