In 1990, ahead of the planned start of trough-running services with JR Shikoku, the Tosa Kuroshio Railway bought one 4-car set of the 2000 Series, then JR Shikoku’s newest train (and the one to be used for inter-running services).
Identical to JR Shikoku’s ones (it even used the same liviery, with the addition of small Tosa Kuroshio Railway logos in the middle of the cars’ sides), the 4-car set composed of units 2030-2130-2230-2231 entered service in november 1990.
While being property of Tosa Kuroshio Railway, the sole 2000 Series set is based at a JR Shikoku Depot (Kochi), serviced and maintained by JR Shikoku and operated only by JR Shikoku drivers and conductors.
The JR Shikoku-style liviery was carried briefly, as this 2000 Series set was repainted by Tosa Kuroshio Railway into an anpanman-themed train in 2001 (following the success of a similar initiative by JR Shikoku the year before), and hasn’t been repainted to it’s original liviery since.
