Iyo-Komatsu Station (伊予小松駅, Iyo-Komatsu-eki) is a railway station on the Yosan Line in Saijō, Ehime Prefecture, Japan. It is operated by JR Shikoku and has the station number "Y34".[1][2]

Lines[edit]

The station is served by the JR Shikoku Yosan Line and is located 121.6 km from the beginning of the line at Takamatsu Station.[3] Only Yosan Line local trains stop at the station and they only serve the sector between Iyo-Saijō and Matsuyama. Connections with other local or limited express trains are needed to travel further east or west along the line.[4]

Layout[edit]

The station consists of two opposed side platforms serving two tracks. Track 1 is a passing loop and served by platform 1, attached to the station building. Track 2, served by platform 2, is a straight track. Access to platform 2 is by means of a footbridge. The station building is unstaffed and serves only as a waiting room. Parking is available at the station forecourt. There is also a refuge siding branching off track 1 which ends near the station building. Short stub sidings branch off elsewhere on both tracks.[2][5][6][3]

History[edit]

The station opened on 1 May 1923 as an intermediate stop when the then Sanuki Line was extended westwards from Iyo-Saijō to Nyūgawa. At that time the station was operated by Japanese Government Railways, later becoming Japanese National Railways (JNR). With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, control of the station passed to JR Shikoku.[7][8]
