Ressha Sentai ToQger (烈車戦隊トッキュウジャー, Ressha Sentai Tokkyūjā) is a Japanese television series, the 38th installment in Toei Company's Super Sentai series, following Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger. It premiered on TV Asahi affiliates on February 16, 2014, joining Kamen Rider Gaim and later, Kamen Rider Drive in the Super Hero Time programming block, and it ended on February 15, 2015. The series has a train motif, and unlike previous series where the heroes are named after colors, the heroes in ToQger are numbered and regularly swap colors during battle. Most of the series' props are used for the 2017 American Power Rangers season adaption of the later Super Sentai show Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, Power Rangers Ninja Steel.
The series' main characters made a cameo appearance in the film Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: The Great Dinosaur Battle! Farewell Our Eternal Friends, and appeared in a special meet-and-greet and press conference at Tokyo Dome City in late January 2014. In October 2014, the series was given the Japan Railway Award's Special award by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in its annual "Train Day" observance, recognizing its effect on making children enjoy trains.
Among the Super Sentai Series, it is the first Super Sentai banned in China for the celebration of 70th anniversary victory in the Second Sino-Japanese War.
Only those with a great Imagination (イマジネーション, Imajinēshon) can see the mystical railway known as the Rainbow Line (レインボーライン, Reinbō Rain), on which run massive trains known as Ressha (烈車) are driven by five warriors known as the ToQgers (トッキュウジャー, Tokkyūjā), While it is their mission to save towns from the evil forces of the Shadow Line (シャドーライン, Shadō Rain) who are using the residents' fear and sadness to establish their own railway to enable the coming of their leader Emperor Z, whose intention is consume light to plunge the world into darkness, the five ToQgers are also childhood friends who also fight to recover the memories of their hometown after it was consumed by the Shadow Line's evil. After being joined by a former Shadow Line member named Zaram who now goes by the name Akira Nijino as their sixth member, the original ToQgers regain their memories of their hometown Subarugahama and discover that it is completely consumed within the Shadow Line's railroad. The ToQgers begin a campaign to free these "Shadow Towns" from their Shadow Creep Keepers in an attempt to recover their memories and save their friends and family, while Emperor Z must deal with some opposition among his own subjects.
As the motif for ToQger is trains, the episodes are called "stations" (駅, eki).
The ToQgers made their debut appearance in the post-credits scene of Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: The Great Dinosaur Battle! Farewell Our Eternal Friends.
