813-0 series[edit]

Nine sets (R001 to R009) were delivered to Minami-Fukuoka depot in 1994, originally as 2-car sets, entering service from 1 March 1994.[3]

From March 2003, new 10th-batch SaHa 813-400 centre cars were added to standardize the entire fleet as 3-car sets.[4]

These sets are normally used on the Kagoshima Main Line, Nippō Main Line, Nagasaki Main Line, and Sasebo Line.[3]

2-car set R008 was withdrawn together with R101 and R231 after sustaining damage in a head-on collision in February 2002.[3]

Thirteen 2nd-batch 813-100 series 3-car sets (R101 to R113) were delivered to Minami-Fukuoka depot between January 1995 and March 1996. Six 2-car sets (R014 to R019) were delivered to Nōgata depot between January and May 1996. These differ from the Minami-Fukuoka sets in having black cab ends.[3] The 2-car sets were lengthened to 3 cars in October 2001 with the addition of 8th-batch SaHa 813-500 centre trailer cars. These cars have longitudinal seating.[3]

The Minami-Fukuoka-based sets are normally used interchangeably with the 813-0 series sets, and the Nōgata-based sets are normally used on the Fukuhoku Yutaka Line.[3]
