History[edit]

The line opened as a one-stop single-track spur from Chōfu to Tamagawahara on June 1, 1916. It was doubled on April 1, 1924. On May 1, 1937, Tamagawahara was renamed Keiō-Tamagawa, and on August 4, 1963, the line was finally electrified.[citation needed]

The line was first extended on April 1, 1971, to Keiō-Yomiuri-Land. Subsequent extensions brought the line to Keiō-Tama-Center (October 18, 1974), Minami-Ōsawa (May 22, 1988) and Hashimoto (March 30, 1990). Tamasakai station opened on April 6, 1991. These extensions were planned to serve Tama New Town.[citation needed]

Between 1992 and 2001, a limited express service existed, stopping at Chōfu, Keiō-Tama-Center, and Hashimoto.[citation needed]
