The Hankyu 1300 series (阪急電鉄1300系 Hankyū 1300-kei?) is a commuter electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the private railway operator Hankyu Corporation on Hankyu Kyoto Main Line services since March 2014.[1]

Overview[edit]

Based on the 9000 series and 9300 series EMUs first introduced in 2003, the 8-car 1300 series trains are manufactured by Hitachi and have aluminium alloy bodies with a double-skin construction.[2] Externally, the trains are finished in the standard Hankyu colour scheme of all-over maroon.[2]

Formation[edit]

The eight-car trains are formed as shown below, with four motored (M) cars and four non-powered trailer (T) cars, and car 1 at the Umeda end.[3][4]

The "M" cars (1800 and 1850) each have two single-arm pantographs.[3]

Interior[edit]

Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout, with "golden olive" coloured moquette seat covers.[2] Internally, the trains use LED lighting throughout.[3] Each car includes a wheelchair space at one end.[3]
