The Toei 10-000 series (東京都交通局10-000形?) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation (Toei) on the Toei Shinjuku Line in Tokyo, Japan.

Operations[edit]

The 10-000 series operate on the Toei Shinjuku Line between Shinjuku and Motoyawata, and also on inter-running services over the Keio Line from Shinjuku as far as Hashimoto on the Keio Sagamihara Line.[1]

Formations[edit]

As of 1 April 2012, the fleet consists of ten 8-car sets (sets 10-190 to 10-280) with six motored (M) cars and two trailer (T) cars, formed as shown below, with car 1 at the Shinjuku end.[1]

Numbering 10-xx9 10-xx8 10-xx7 10-xx6 10-xx5 10-xx2 10-xx1 10-xx0
  • "xx" corresponds to the set number.
  • Cars 3 and 7 are each fitted with two lozenge-type pantographs, and car 5 has one.[1]

Interior[edit]

Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout. Wheelchair spaces were added when the original six-car sets were lengthened to eight-car sets.[2]

History[edit]

The prototype set, 10-010, was initially tested on the Toei Mita Line.[3]

Refurbishment commenced in fiscal 2009. This consisted of adding external speakers, replacing the original roller blind destination indicators with LED indicators, moving the body side destination indicators from the ends to a central position, and adding interior passenger information displays.[2]

10-300R series set 10-340, temporarily formed of former 10-000 series intermediate cars, May 2006

In 2005 and 2006, the 10-xx7 and 10-xx8 cars of sets 10-010 to 10-180 were refurbished and reformed with new driving cars to become 10-300R series. These cars were built between 1986 and 1989 as batches 3 and 5 to lengthen original 6-car sets to 8 cars, and so were still relatively new compared to the rest of the cars in the sets in which they were contained.[4]
