In 1982 the Miyafuku Railway Co. was established to recommence construction, which resumed the following year.
The line opened in 1988, featuring 10 tunnels, including the 3215-meter Fukō Tunnel, the 2175-meter Shimoamazu Tunnel and the 2103-meter Tochiba Tunnel. The following year the company renamed itself the Kitakinki Tango Railway.
