History

The section from Horinouchi to Kurihama (present-day Keikyu Kurihama) opened on 1 December 1942.[1] The line was extended to Nobi on 1 November 1963, and the Keikyu factory at Kurihama opened at the same time.[1] The line was further extended to Tsukuihama on 27 March 1966, and to Miurakaigan on 7 July 1966.[1]

Direct limited express services between Miurakaigan and Keisei Narita began on 31 December 1969.[1] ATS signalling was introduced on all Keikyu Lines on 12 November 1970.[1] The final section from Miurakaigan to Misakiguchi opened on 26 April 1975.[1]

Future developments

From the start of the revised weekday timetable on 7 December 2015, two Morning Wing limited-stop commuter services from Miurakaigan to Shinagawa and Sengakuji in Tokyo are scheduled to be introduced. These will stop at Yokosuka-chuo, Kanazawa-Bunko, and Kamiōoka en route.[3]
