The 719 series (719系, 719-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type introduced in 1989 by East Japan Railway Company (JR East) on services in the Miyagi, Yamagata, Fukushima, and Akita areas of Japan.

Design[edit]

Built jointly by Nippon Sharyo and Tokyu Car,[1] the type is based on the 415-1500 series EMU design, with all units formed as 2-car sets.[2]

Variants[edit]

  • 719-0 series: 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) narrow-gauge type based at Sendai and Akita depots
  • 719-5000 series: 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in) standard-gauge type based at Yamagata Depot
  • 719-700 series: FruiTea excursion set converted in 2015 from 719-0 series

As of 1 April 2017, the fleet consists of 34 719-0 series two-car sets based at Sendai, two 719-0 series two-car sets based at Akita, and 12 719-5000 series two-car sets based at Yamagata.[3]

719-0 series[edit]

The 719-0 series consists of 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) narrow-gauge two-car sets based at Sendai Depot for use on the Tohoku Main Line, Senzan Line, and Banetsu West Line, and at Akita Depot for use on the Ou Main Line. 42 sets were built by Tokyu Car Corporation between December 1989 and August 1991.[4] The trains reused some equipment from withdrawn JNR-era EMUs, including the DT32 (motored) and TR69 (trailer) bogies, as well as the pantographs.[2]

Some sets (H10 to H15) were reliveried in an "Akabe" colour scheme for Banetsu West Line services from 2007.[4] One set, H27, was converted to become the 719-700 series FruiTea excursion train in 2015.

Sets H10 and H13 were transferred from Sendai to Akita in March 2017,[3] entering revenue service on Akita area services on 28 July 2017.[5] These sets were reliveried with a pink bodyline stripe to match the 701 series trains already used in the area.[5]

Formations[edit]

The 719-0 series sets are numbered H1 to H42, and are formed as follows, with one motored "Mc" car and one non-powered trailer ("Tc") car, and the KuHa 718 car at the southern end.[4][6]

Designation Tc' Mc
Numbering KuHa 718 KuMoHa 719

This entered service from 25 April 2015, operating on the Banetsu West Line between Koriyama and Aizu-Wakamatsu. The train consists of a cafe car and seating car, with accommodation for 36 passengers.[8]
