As of April 1, 2016, the line is operated using a fleet of seven three-car 5000 series electric multiple unit (EMU) trainsets.[1]

History[edit]

The line opened on October 15, 1925, as the Daiyūzan Railway, between Kari-Odawara Station (仮小田原駅) and Daiyūzan Station, with a track gauge of 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) and an overhead power supply of 600 V.[2] The terminus of the line was moved from Kari-Odawara to Shin-Odawara Station (新小田原駅), close to the present-day Midorichō Station on April 10, 1927, and finally to Odawara Station on June 16, 1935.[2] The Daiyūzan Line was merged with the Sunzu Line on August 23, 1941, and became part of the Izuhakone Railway from June 1, 1957.[2] From November 25, 1976, the power rating on the line was raised from 600 volts to 1,500 volts.[2] Automatic ticket gates were installed on all stations by 2003,[citation needed] and were upgraded to accept both the Suica and PASMO IC Card systems by March 2007.[2]
