The earthquake that occurred about 10.41 pm on 7th October, it has caused one of the Metro’s trains on Nippori-Toneri Liner to be derailed.

The Nippori-Toneri Liner is an automated guideway transit system between Nippori Station in Arakawa and Minumadai-shinsuikōen Station in Adachi, Tokyo, Japan. It is operated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation.

Shortly after the train from Nippori Station to Minumashiro Water Park Station departed from Toneri Koen Station toward Toneri Station, the leading vehicle derailed due to the effects of the earthquake. Three passengers were injured in the accident, two of whom were transported by emergency. Nippori-Toneri Liner has been closed for all lines since the earthquake.

As the situation has been uncertain, the entire line has been suspended. Emergency inspection and recovery planning were carried out promptly, which cranes have been deployed to tandem lift the derailed train. The works were completed on the 9th of October.

It was the night of the 10th that the schedule was announced that the service would resume on all lines from the first train on the 11th. However, due to the damage to multiple vehicles due to the earthquake, the train will operate on the regular timetable from the first train on the 11th, and during the morning rush hours (7 am to 10 am), the number of trains will be 10% less than the regular timetable. The train service resumed normal operation on the 12th of October.
