The Seinō Railway (西濃鉄道?, Seinō Tetsudō) is a freight only railway company in Ōgaki, Gifu, Japan. The company was founded in 1927. Its line mainly transports limestone. The company is not related to Seinō Transportation (西濃運輸?), a transportation company with similar name, also based in Ōgaki. The company was reported as being dissolved in 2013.

History[edit]

The 3km line from Mino-Akasaka to Ichihashi opened in 1928, and a passenger service operated from 1930 to 1945.

Lines[edit]

Status unknown[edit]

  • Ichihashi Line (市橋線)
    • Otomezaka — Ichihashi: 1.3 km / 0.8 mi.
  • Hirui Line (昼飯線)
    • Mino-Akasaka — Hirui: 1.9 km / 1.2 mi.

These two lines are virtually unused since the 1990s, as limestone is now mainly transported by road. However, their official status remains unknown.
