The sets originally sported a yellow bodyside line when used on Yurakucho Line services, but were gradually reliveried with brown, gold, and white stripes coinciding with use on Fukutoshin Line services.

Overseas operations[edit]

Accidents and incidents[edit]

On December 9, 2013, set 7121 (KRL 1131) collided with a Pertamina tank truck at a level crossing at Bintaro Permai intersection on the KCJ Jakarta - Tangerang line in Tangerang, Indonesia, leading to 7 deaths and 45 injuries. The front two carriages of set 7121 as well as the tank truck were both destroyed in the ensuing fire.[3][4] As a result of the accident, set 7121 was finally scrapped.[citation needed]
