The Hanshin 1000 series (阪神電鉄1000系?) is a commuter electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the private railway operator Hanshin Electric Railway in Japan since 2007.[1]


The design was based on the earlier 9000 series trains, formed as six- and two-car sets.[1] The motored cars are mounted on SS171M bogies, and the non-powered trailer cars use SS171T bogies.[2]


The 1000 series sets are used on through-running services over Kintetsu lines, and are able to operate in multiple with 9000 series trains, running as up to 10-car formations.[1]


As of 1 April 2014, the fleet consists of thirteen six-car sets, numbered 1201 to 1213, and nine two-car sets, numbered 1501 to 1509.[3]
