The Chichibu Railway 1000 series (秩父鉄道1000系) was an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type for local services operated by Chichibu Railway in Japan from 1986 until March 2014.[1][2]

History[edit]

Twelve three-car trains were converted in 1986 from former JNR 101 series commuter EMUs. Conversion included the addition of a second pantograph on the DeHa 1000 cars and the inclusion of a luggage area at the cab ends separated by a curtain arrangement.[1]

Air-conditioning was added to the end cars from fiscal 1994, with the centre cars in each set left without air-conditioning.[3]

The trains were modified for wanman driver only operation from December 1999.[1] The final train ran on 23 March 2014.[2]
