Part of the “209 Series & derivatives” megapack –  jump to the previous or next part.



All the necessary dependencies are either included in this package or are avaible on the DLS. Soundscript by Rizky_Adiputra.

The other line to recieve withdrawn 209 Series trains from the Keihin-Tohoku Line was the Nambu Line, wich recieved three 209-2200 Series 6-car sets in late 2009. Unlike the 2000 and 2100 Subserieses for the Boso Area, the 209-2200 Series sets had changed little from their Keihin-Tohoku Line days, except for the LED destination indicator. These three sets had been introduced to supplement the existing Nambu Line fleet, wich was then formed of 205, 205-1200 and 209 (-0) Series sets. Entering service in early 2010, their tenure on the Nambu Line was quite short, as just a few years later, they started to be once more replaced by the E233 Series (togheter with the rest of the line’s fleet), specifically the -8000 Subseries tailored for the Nambu Line, wich entered service in October 2014.


The replacement was quick, with the 209-0 Series being the first to be retired, in February 2015, followed by the 205 Series in December that year, and the 205-1200 Series in January 2016. Out of the three 209-2200 Sets, two (52 and 54) were retired in 2015, while the third one (set no.53) managed to cling on a few years longer, being retired only on the 15th March 2017, replaced by an ex-Chuo Line E233 Series set transferred to the Nambu Line and reclassified as the E233-8500 Series.
Unlike the other four 209 Series sets (the two of the -0 Subseries and the two of the -2200 Subseries), 209-2200 Series set no.53 wasn’t scrapped. Instead it was converted into the “B.B.Base” (“Boso Bycicle Base”) train for tourist-oriented services in the Boso Area in late 2017. Under it’s new appearance, 209-2200 Series set no.53 is still in service, shuttling cyclists around the Boso Peninsula.
