Opened2005TracksDouble track
The vehicles used for the trains to Tsukuba are dual-mode trains, e.g. both 1500V DC and 20000V AC. The reason for not using 1500V DC on the Moriya - Tsukuba section is that it would disturb geomagnetic measurements at the Japan Metrological Agency's labratory near the line.
