Those lines formerly started on Kami-kumamoto station, but afterwards following the suspension of Kami-kumamoto to Fujisaki-miyamae section made the Fujisaki Line terminus station switched to Fujisaki-miyamae.

Services: Kikuchi Line, Fujisaki Line

6000 series are bought from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau (Toei) with same type, but just use two control cars instead of full train set, since the station platforms on Fujisaki Line didn't have long enough space to operate all 6 cars. Some modifications as one man set applied shortly after delivered, including mirrors, cowcatchers and display signs. Other properties have just remained intact, like her sisters in service on Chichibu Railway.
