The Odakyu 4000 series (小田急4000形 Odakyū 4000-gata?) is a 1,500 V DC commuter electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the private railway operator Odakyu Electric Railway in Japan since 2007.[2]

Design[edit]

The trains are based on the JR East E233 series EMU design, but with narrow bodies to permit subway running.[2] The traction motors are fully enclosed to reduce environmental noise.[2]

Formation[edit]

As of 1 April 2015, 15 ten-car sets were in service, numbered 4051 to 4065, and formed as follows.[3]

Car No. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Designation Tc2 M6 M5 T2 T1 M4 M3 M2 M1 Tc1
Numbering 4550 4500 4400 4450 4350 4300 4200 4100 4000 4050
  • Cars 3, 7, and 9 each have one single-arm pantograph.[3]
  • Car 2 is designated as a mildly air-conditioned car.[3]

Interior[edit]

Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout. Cars 1 and 10 have wheelchair spaces.[3]

History[edit]

The first train was delivered in May 2007, and the trains entered service in September 2007 on inter-running services between Odakyu and the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line, displacing 1000 series sets, which were cascaded to surface lines to replace older 5000 and 5200 series sets.
