Type 800 (3- and 6-car fixed formation, car length 18m)
The 800 class started commercial operation on December 27, 1978. It was the first Keikyu train to be equipped with an armature chopper control system, a direct current DC motor as the main electric motor, and a regenerative brake system. The train was awarded the Laurel Prize in 1979 for its one-handle master controller and FRP interior, which had a great influence on later railcars. This series does not support subway service.
A total of 132 Type 800s were built as surface-only cars. The special feature of the Type 800 is that it was designed as a four-door car with four doors on the side of the car for boarding and alighting. Like the Type 700 that preceded it, the Type 800 was built with more doors than the (former) Type 1000, which was designed for direct subway service, in order to shorten the time required to get on and off the train during rush hours. The photo (2) shows the car undergoing periodic inspection at the Kurihama Works of Keikyu Finetech.

2411F 2411F
The main control unit is an armature chopper control unit and the main electric motor is a DC DC direct-wound electric motor. The Keikyu’s signaling system is designed on the premise that the lead car is an electric bogie, so in the case of a 4-car formation, this series has one accompanying car with a control circuit device between the three electric car units, and both lead cars are electric cars. The event is scheduled to be held on March 25, 2018.

Series 101 (4-car fixed formation, car length 20m)
The former Series 101 was introduced in 1969 when the Seibu Chichibu Line started operation. 101 Series is a commuter train with 3-door body and has a wide range of train performance from mountainous section operation to rush transportation. The main controller is resistance control, and the DC DC winding motor with 150KW output is powerful, and together with the braking system of the HSC-D, which is an electromagnetic direct current air brake combined with a power generation brake equipped with a speed reducing brake, it can run safely in mountainous sections. The drive system uses a hollow shaft parallel cardan drive system, and the design maximum speed is set at 120 km/h and the maximum operating speed is set at 105 km/h. The maximum speed of the 10000 Series is 120 km/h, and the maximum speed of the 10000 Series is 105 km/h. These performance characteristics will be followed up to the 10000 series limited express trains. It was manufactured at Seibu Tokorozawa Rolling Stock Works.
The former Series 101 cars were withdrawn from the Shinjuku and Ikebukuro Lines in December 2004, and were withdrawn from the Tamagawa Line in March 2008.
The last 101 Series was retired on November 9, 2010.

162s-4 Series 371 (JR Tokai Gotemba Line, 7-car fixed formation, car length 20m)
Series 371 “Asagiri-go” ran on the Odakyu Odawara Line from Odakyu Shinjuku Station to the Gotemba Line connecting line junction in front of Shin-Matsuda Station, and on the JR Tokai Gotemba Line between “Matsuda and Numazu” Station via the Matsuda connecting line.
Commercial operation started on March 16, 1991. The car body was designed by the JR Tokai Car Division and TDO, and was awarded the Good Design Product of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry in 1991.
164s-1 The manufacturing was done by three companies, Nippon Sharyo, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, and Hitachi, Ltd.
The basic specification of Series 371 is the same with Odakyu Type 20000 (RSE) such as running performance and capacity, etc. However, when it was not able to run for inspection etc. because JR Tokai had only one train of 7 cars, RSE was borrowed from Odakyu.
The main controller is a resistance controller (series-parallel combination control field additive excitation control), and the DC direct current winding motor ( C-MT61A, C-MT64A type 120kW) is installed as the main electric motor, and the maximum operating speed is 120km/h.
213 Series 371 transferred to Fujikyu Line was renewed as “Fuji View Express” Series 8500. The interior and exterior design was done by Eiji Mitooka of Dawn Design Laboratory, the modification of running gear was done by JR East Technology, and the interior was done by Nagasaki Ship Equipment. The composition is No. 1 (Kuro-8551) of the first car of the Fuji direction, No. 2 (MOHA8601) of the middle car and No. 3 (KUMOHA8501) of the first car of the Otsuki direction, and the former number in the 371 series era is KUMOHA371-1 for Kuro-8551 of No. 1, MOHA370-101 for MOHA8601 of No. 2, and KUMOHA371-101 for KUMOHA8501 of No. 3. The four cars that were not incorporated into the 8500 series were dismantled.
The train MT ratio is 5M2T, and the train can achieve an equilibrium speed of 100km/h on a 25‰ steep gradient in the Gotemba Line, and can be started up with one unit cut off on a 33‰ gradient. The brake system is an electric-command pneumatic brake with regenerative braking, and the main train controller is JR Tokai’s first one-handle mass controller. The safety devices are ATS-ST (JR Tokai) and OM-ATS ( Odakyu).
On October 17, 2011, JR Tokai announced that they plan to retire Series 371 on March 16, 2112. After this, JR Tokai’s trains will no longer operate on Odakyu Line and “Asagiri-go” will continue to be operated by Odakyu trains only (Odakyu Type 60000 MSE) stopping at Gotemba Station. This train series was not scrapped, but was used for JR Tokai’s special trains after refurbishing Series 371 to be used for group trains, but the operation was terminated at the end of November 2014.
Fujikyu Line announced in late March 2015 that it would convert the 7-car Series 371 into a 3-car train and make it the successor to the old “Fujisan Express” Series 2000, scheduled to be in operation from April 23, 2016.

Hakone Tozan Railway

MOHA1 type

003s-30 MOHA1 class [103](3-car formation, car length 14.6m)
MOHA1 class was built in 1950 when Odakyu Electric Railway started direct train operation between Odawara and Hakone-Yumoto stations (the overhead line voltage was increased to 1,500V DC).
The predecessor of the wooden bogie car “Chiki 1” was built in 1919 when the line between “Hakone-Yumoto and Gora” was opened. The bogie and the main electric motor were diverted, and the car body and the control unit were newly manufactured.
Currently, three cars of No. 108, 109 and 110 are in operation, but Hakone Tozan Railway announced on July 14, 2016 that MOHA2 type 110 will be retired in February 2017.
Near the Sculpture Forest Station [2010/04/08].
008-9-2 The MOHA1 was converted from the Chiki1 type that had been used since its opening in 1919 to a fixed two-car formation in 1993, and the driver’s cab on the coupling side was removed.
The 103-107 formation was the last Hakone Tozan Railway train to use the “suspension drive system”. The suspension drive system is one of the systems that transmit power from the motor to the wheels, and is characterized by its unique driving sound. This method used to be the mainstream, but due to improvements in train performance, most of the trains in Japan have been replaced by the Cardan drive system.
All trains of this type were taken out of service on July 12, 2019.

Deya 7200 and Deya 7290 are lorries that inspect all electrical equipment such as signals and overhead wires on all Tokyu lines except the Setagaya Line of Tokyu Corporation and the Minatomirai Line and Kodomonokuni Line of Yokohama Rapid Transit. The 7200 Series is equipped with ATC, ATS, and other equipment necessary for operation on all lines, and is also equipped with a traction system for transporting Ikegami and Tamagawa Line cars to the Nagatsuta Works.
The base 7200 Series started commercial operation in March 1967 and operated on the Denentoshi Line and Oimachi Line with other 7200 Series trains, but later became a Kodomonokuni Line exclusive train and operated until 1989.
In 1991, Deha 7200 was remodeled as Deya 7200 with double-drivers and power cars, and Kuha 7500 (aluminum prototype) was remodeled as Deya 7290 with double-drivers, electric cars (recycled electrical components of Deha 7402 which were used for remodeling to Deha 7673) and overhead line test cars. Both cars are equipped with ATC onboard equipment, and the mass control system is the one-handle type common to other trains. The brake system differs from the electric command type (HRD) of other trains in the series, and the electromagnetic direct-command type HSC-R from the new construction was equipped with a mechanism similar to HRD.
With the introduction of the new type inspection car “TOQi” in March 2012, the train was taken out of operation on February 26, 2012, by conducting a farewell run. Photos (1) to (8) show the farewell operation.

Series 7700 (Ikegami Line, Tamagawa Line, car length 18m, 3-car fixed formation)
Series 7700 is a remodeled version of Japan’s first all-stainless steel car, Series 7000, which was introduced in 1962 and started commercial operation in 1987. The main controller was changed from resistance control to VVVF inverter control using GTO thyristor elements, and the main electric motors were changed from DC double-winding commutator motors to three-phase AC cage type induction motors ( 170kW). The main equipment was installed by Tokyu Sharyo Manufacturing and Toyoko Sharyo Densetsu (now Tokyu Techno Systems) at the Nagatsuta Rolling Stock Works, and the Ikegami Line one-man operation modification (one-handle master controller, on-board ITV platform monitoring monitor, automatic broadcasting equipment, outside speakers, TASC information transmission equipment) was installed in 1995. In 2002, the surplus cars were transferred to Towada Kanko Electric Railway. 7000 series cars have been scrapped since 2010.
The Series 7700, which has been in operation on the Ikegami Line and Tokyu Tamagawa Line in recent years, is a Series 7000, Japan’s first all-stainless steel train, which was created in 1962, and was modified in terms of undercarriage and interior between 1987 and 1991 when it was introduced to the Oimachi Line and the Megama Line (currently part of the Meguro Line and the Tokyu Tamagawa Line). The last run was on November 24, 2018.
The photo (9) shows the 7914F formation (Deha 7714, Deha 7814, Kuha 7914) that was transferred from the Meguro Line (discontinued) to the Ikegami Line in 1996.
