"Ise III" type DMU

The Ise Line (伊勢線, Ise-sen) is a Japanese railway line in Mie Prefecture, between Kawarada Station, Yokkaichi and Tsu Station, Tsu. This is the only railway line Ise Railway (伊勢鉄道, Ise Tetsudō) operates. The company is called for short as Isetetsu (伊勢鉄). The third sector company took former Japanese National Railways line in 1987. The line was originally built as a short cut route between Nagoya and south Kii Peninsula (Kisei Main Line). As such, Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) limited express trains "Nanki" and rapid train "Mie" still use the line, providing the primary revenue stream for the company. The line also transports spectators when Formula One World Championship Japanese Grand Prix is held at Suzuka Circuit (1987-2006, 2009-).
