Gala-Yuzawa Line

From TrainSpottingWorld, for Rail fans everywhere

The Gala-Yuzawa Line (ガーラ湯沢線, -sen) is a railway line in Japan.

This is a short branch line that extends from Echigo-Yuzawa Station on the Joetsu Shinkansen to Gala-Yuzawa Station. Gala-Yuzawa station serves the nearby ski resort (ski lifts operate directly from the station), so the station is only used during the winter period. During the skiing season, Tanigawa services from Tokyo are extended to run to Gala-Yuzawa.
