10. Deyama Signal Station
The Hakone Tozan Train uses a switchback system to climb mountain slopes, and changes direction at three points along the line. The Deyama Signal Station is one of the points where switchbacks are made, and is located between Tonosawa Station and Ohiradai Station. There, the driver and conductor switch places, and customers cannot get on and off. This time, for the first time, you can see two trains switching back at the same time, entering the back of the tracks at the Deyama Signal Station, which is usually closed to cars.
11. Between Hakone-Yumoto and Iriuda depot (three-track)
The three-line track is a method of laying tracks in which three rails are laid and two types of trains with different track widths run. The Hakone Tozan train runs on the wide side (standard gauge: 1,435 mm), and the Odakyu train (narrow gauge: 1,067 mm) runs on the narrow side. Currently, along the Hakone Tozan Train line, this three-line track is laid only for the 1.9km section between Iriuda and Hakone Yumoto where the garage is located. Since the operation of the Tozan Train between Odawara and Hakone-Yumoto ended in March 2006, customers can ride the Hakone Tozan Train on the 3-line track only when special events are held. I’m here.
