The Tokyo Metro 7000 series (東京メトロ7000系, Tōkyō Metoro 7000-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro in Tokyo, Japan, since 1974. The design is based on the earlier Tokyo Metro 6000 series trains used on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.
7000 series trainsets operate on the following lines.
- ■ Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line (10-car sets)
- ■ Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line (8/10-car sets)
- ■ Tobu Tojo Line between Wakōshi and Shiki (8-car sets) or Shinrinkoen (10-car sets)
- ■ Seibu Yurakucho Line
- ■ Seibu Ikebukuro Line between Kotake-Mukaihara and Hannō
- ■ Tokyu Toyoko Line (since 16 March 2013)
- ■ Minatomirai Line (since 16 March 2013)
- Cars 2, 4, and 8 are each fitted with two lozenge-type pantographs.
- Car 9 is designated as a moderately air-conditioned car.
- Cars 3 and 7 are each fitted with two lozenge-type pantographs.
- Car 7 is designated as a moderately air-conditioned car.
Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout. Cars 2 and 9 in the ten-car sets and cars 2 and 7 in the eight-car sets each have a wheelchair space. Priority seating is provided at the end of each car.
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. The remaining 7000 series sets will be replaced by the 17000 series.
Four 7000 series ten-car sets (7117, 7121, 7122, and 7123) were shipped to Indonesia in 2010 for use on suburban services operated by Kereta Commuter Indonesia (previously called "KA Commuter Jabodetabek" or "KRL Jabodetabek") in Jakarta. The four sets were reduced to eight-car formations and are formed as follows, based at Depok Depot.
|7100 (CT1)||7200 (T2)||7300 (M1)||7400 (M2')||7500 (Tc1)||7600 (Tc2)||7900 (M1)||7000 (CM2)|
The two M1 cars in each set are equipped with two pantographs.
Accidents and incidents
On December 9, 2013, set 7121 (KRL 1131) collided with a Pertamina tank truck at a level crossing at the Bintaro Permai intersection on the KCJ Serpong - Tanah Abang line near Bintaro, South 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. Set 7121 was scrapped in December 2014.
