Iyo-Nagahama Station (伊予長浜駅, Iyo-Nagahama-eki) is a railway station on the Yosan Line in Ōzu, Ehime Prefecture, Japan. It is operated by JR Shikoku and has the station number "S12".[1][2]

Lines[edit]

The station is located on the older, original, branch of the Yosan Line which runs along the coast from Mukaibara to Iyo-Ōzu and is 233.1 km from the beginning of the line at Takamatsu.[3] Only local trains stop at the station. Eastbound local services end at Matsuyama. Connections with other services are needed to travel further east of Matsuyama on the line.[4]

Layout[edit]

The station consists of a side and an island platform serving three tracks with the centre one (track 2) being unused. The station building is unstaffed and serves only as a waiting room. Access to the island platform is by means of a level crossing with steps at both ends. A siding branches off track 1 and ends near the station building.[2][5][3]

History[edit]

The station open as Nagahama-machi Station (長浜町駅, Nagahamamachi-eki) on 14 February 1918. At that time it was the eastern terminus of the privately run 762 mm gauge Ehime Railways. When the company was nationalized on 1 October 1933, Japanese Government Railways (JGR) assumed control. The station was renamed Iyo-Nagahama and was operated as part of the Ehime Line. The track was regauged to 1067 mm and linked up with the Yosan Mainline track from Kitanada on 6 October 1935. Iyo-Nagahama, which had also been moved 200m nearer to Kitanada at the same time, then became a through-station on the Yosan Mainline. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR Shikoku.[6][7]
