Ise-Nakagawa Station (Japan)

Ise-Nakagawa Station (伊勢中川駅, Ise-Nakagawa-eki) is a major junction station owned and operated by the private Kintetsu railway company in the city of Matsusaka, Mie Prefecture. The station is served by all trains on that company's Yamada Line and most trains on its Nagoya and Osaka Lines. [1] The Ise-Nakagawa stationmaster is responsible for managing the sections between here and Higashi-Aoyama on the Osaka Line and between here and Higashi-Matsusaka on the Yamada Line.

Station layout

The station consists of six parallel tracks numbered 1 through 6 (see diagram below). Four island platforms are located to serve Tracks 1 & 2, 2 & 3, 3 & 4, and 4 & 5. Track 6 is served by one side platform. This layout allows trains on Tracks 2, 3, and 4 to open their doors on both sides, enabling easy transfer between trains on the three major lines which connect at this station.

Limited express trains running directly between the Nagoya Line and the Osaka Line do not pass through Ise-Nakagawa station. Instead, these trains use a north-east to north-west chord which connects the two lines at a point some 3.5 km north-west of the station, the two trunk lines and this chord together constituting a triangular junction.

History

The first station on the site was opened on 18 May 1930 as Sankyū-Nakagawa Station (参急中川駅, Sankyū-Nakagawa-eki) on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. It received its present name on 15 March 1941 when this company merged with the Osaka Electric Railway to form the Kansai Express Railway and Ise-Nakagawa become a station on the merged company's Yamada Line. [4] A further merger, with the Nankai Electric Railway on 1 June 1, 1944, created the Kinki Nippon Railway, forerunner of today's Kintetsu Railway Co. Ltd. [4] A new station building was completed in 2004.
