The Tokyo Monorail 10000 series (東京モノレール10000形, Tōkyō Monorēru 10000-gata) is a monorail electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the Tokyo Monorail on the Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport Line in Japan since July 2014. [2]

Design

The body design is based on the earlier 2000 series trains first built in 1997, and uses friction stir welded (FSW) aluminum alloy panels. [3]

Formation

As of 1 April 2023, the fleet consists of eight six-car sets, numbered 10011 to 10081, and formed as shown below, with four motored ("M") cars and two non-powered trailer ("T") cars. [2] Car 1 is at the Hamamatsucho end. [2] [4]

Interior

Passenger accommodation consists of a mixture of facing 4-seat bays and longitudinal bench seating, and includes baggage racks next to the doorways. [3] The seats are covered in a blue moquette incorporating the traditional Japanese seigaiha (青海波) pattern. [3] LED lighting is used throughout. [3] Passenger information is provided by 7-inch wide LCD displays above the doorways. [3] Information is provided in four languages: Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. Initially one screen is provided above each doorway, but provision is made for installing a second screen in the future. [3]

History

The first set, 10011, was delivered to Tokyo Monorail's Showajima Depot in March 2014. [5] It entered revenue service on 18 July 2014. [6]

Structural damage

On 31 May 2022, structural cracks were discovered on seven 10000 series trainsets, causing a reduction in peak-hour service from every four minutes to every five minutes. [7] The cracks were mainly found on an aluminum part which connects the body of the vehicle to the bogie.
