153 series

The 153 series (153系, 153-kei) was an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1958 until 1983.

History

The first trains, initially classified 91 series (91系), entered revenue service on 1 November 1958 on Hiei semi express services operating on the Tokaido Main Line between Tokyo and Nagoya. They were renumbered into the JNR three-digit classification system from 1 June 1959.

From 1972, 153 series sets were introduced on Special Rapid services in the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe area to compete against private railway operators. These were replaced by 117 series EMUs by the end of 1980.

The last sets remained in service on Tokaido Main Line Hiei and Tokai services until March 1983.
