Part of the Tokyu 8090 & 8590 Serieses pack




As with the Tokyu 1000 Series pack, all the dependencies are either included in this pack or are avaible on the DLS, except for the pantographs wich must be downloaded from Rizky’s website (they’re included in the freeware EMU packs).



Tranquility on the Oimachi Line (and on the Denentoshi Line too)…

Reformed into 13x 5-car sets, both 8090 and 8590 Series trains entered service on the Oimachi Line in 2006, replacing ther relatives, the 8000 and 8500 Series set, wich were later resold to third-sector railways (Izukyuko, Nagaden…) or abroad (to Indonesia).
At the same time, a new livery based on orange and yellow was introduced for Oimachi Line trains, to help distinguish them from Denentoshi and Toyoko Line trains. The most notable fetaure of this livery were the front “graduated” orange/yellow line, wich became the icon of the Line, and the Oimachi Line’s own logo, wich is composed by a large arrow (the Oimachi Line itself) crossing several other smaller ones (the rest of Tokyu’s network), a representation of the Line’s route and function.

The two Denentoshi Line 10-car sets were also still running trouble-free on their line.



When the Fukutoshin Line opened in 2013 and trough-services began on both sides of the Toyoko Line, Tokyu introduced an upgraded variant of the 5050 Series: the 5050-4000 Series, wich entered service in the same year, displacing 9000 Series sets to the Oimachi Line, in turn replacing in turn all the 8090 and 8590 Series trains already in service on the line, wich were all retired by late 2013.

Fast forward to 2019, the last two 8590 Series trains in service on the Denentoshi Line were replaced by Tokyu’s 2020 Series (named after the summer Olympics), introduced a year earlier.
The last 8590 Series train was retired on the 27th of February 2019.
