Operations[edit]

The 1000 series trains are used on the following JR Shikoku lines.[2]

Passenger accommodation consists of a mixture of longitudinal bench seating on one side and transverse seating bays on the opposite side.[3] Toilets have been retro-fitted to a number of cars since February 2001.[3]

In 2008, 18 1000 series cars were modified to make them compatible with newly delivered 1500 series DMU cars, and were reclassified as 1200 series.[3]
