The Odakyu 2000 series (小田急2000形, Odakyū 2000-gata) is a commuter electric multiple unit (EMU) train that the private railway operator Odakyu Electric Railway has operated in the Tokyo area of Japan since March 1995.[1]

Nine 8-car sets in total were manufactured between 1995 and 2001 in three batches. The design was based on the earlier 1000 series sets, with some of the passenger doors increased from 1,300 to 1,600 mm (4 ft 3 in to 5 ft 3 in) wide to help reduce station dwell times.[2]

Formation[edit]

As of 1 April 2015, the fleet consisted of nine 8-car sets, 2051 to 2059, formed as follows with four motored (M) cars and four unpowered trailer (T) cars. Car 8 is at the Shinjuku end.[3]
