The line, which were closed by 2005-Apr-01, was a single track line with the gauge 1067 mm and was electrified (600 V DC). These simulated routes for BVE goes from Shin-Seki to Shin-Gifu and is used with the class 600, 880 or class 800 streetcars. The routes also uses the Tagami line and a small portion of the Kakamigahara line, the later which is electrified with 1 500 V DC. For that reason the streetcars used were equipped to also run on that voltage.

Known problems:
In the route definition file 880_Local_Shin-Gifu.csv the wrong type of streetcar is used. It can be fixed by changing a line in the file:

Original
Train.Folder m800

Corrected:
Train.Folder mei880

In OpenBVE there is a problem with transparency not working in the graphic objects for the switch position indicators (small round signs with a S on them)

The transparency problem can be fixed by downloading new versions of the files Spring.bmp, Spring2.bmp and Spring3.bmp that are packed in the archive file minomachi_ob.rar. Unpack the archive file and place the extracted files in the directory Railway\Object\minomachi_ob (overwrite the old files with the same names already present in that directory).

Between the stops in Kitaishiki and Ichinotsubo the graphic objects for the rails are misaligned at a couple of locations.
