The Mine Line (美祢線 Mine-sen?) is a railway line of West Japan Railway Company between San'yō-Onoda and Nagato all within Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. Due to heavy rainstorm flooding in July 2010, service was suspended indefinitely. Despite estimates that repairs would take up to 3 years to complete, the Mine Line was restored to full service on September 26, 2011, in time for the 66th National Sports Festival, "Oidemase Yamaguchi Kokutai," which began in October 2011.


All stations are in Yamaguchi Prefecture.
