History[edit]

The 1000 series trains were first introduced in 1988, as four-car sets formed entirely of limited express style cars.[2] Between 1991 and 1992, six of the four-car sets (1011 to 1016) were split up and combined with four 1200 series commuter style cars to create new six-car 1000/1200 series mixed sets.[2]

The sole 1380 series set, 1384, in July 2009

In 1992, four more six-car sets were built, reusing electrical equipment from withdrawn 7500 series "Panorama Car" EMU cars, and classified 1030/1230 series,[2] these sets differed from the earlier 1000/1200 series trainsets in having all cars motored.[2] Set 1134 was converted to become a four-car 1380 series commuter set in 2002 after the limited express (1030 series) cars sustained collision damage and had to be scrapped.[2]

From 2015, the designation for the trains was standardized to simply "1200 series".[6]

Withdrawal[edit]

The remaining four-car sets were removed from regular service from the start of the timetable revision on 27 December 2008.[5] Set 1001 was used on a special farewell run on 18 April 2009,[5] some of the electrical equipment from these sets being reused in 5000 series commuter EMUs.[2]

Refurbishment[edit]

From fiscal 2015, three 6-car 1200 series sets (18 vehicles) are scheduled to be refurbished with new interiors and exterior livery,[6] the first set treated, 1112, was unveiled in August 2015.[7] Refurbishment work includes replacing the original "Panorama Super" headboard panel with a colour LED destination indicator, and a new livery similar to that carried by the 2200 series trains.[6]
