Driver's cab[edit]

The front ends have an emergency exit. Headlights and taillights are round. Sets are fitted with skirts. These were modified on sets transferred to the Tōzai Line.

The trains originally had a two-handle control system. Tōzai Line sets were modified with a single-handle (left-hand) system on transfer to the Tōzai Line. The Tōzai Line sets have a master controller which incorporates a deadman system which applies the brakes if the master controller is released by the driver.


Set 07-101 on Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line service, September 2008

The first sets (07-101 and 07-102) were introduced in 1992. Four more sets (07-103 to 07-106) were delivered in 1994. The six 10-car sets were initially all based on the Tokyo Metro Yūrakuchō Line, but between July 2006 and March 2007, four sets (07-103 to 07-106) were transferred to the Tokyo Metro Tōzai Line to replace ageing 5000 series trains, and were repainted into that line's color scheme with light blue waistline stripes.[1] The two remaining Yurakucho Line sets (07-101 and 07-102) were stored out-of-use from October 2007. Set 07-101 was subsequently repainted into the Tōzai Line colours at Shin-Kiba Works, and temporarily reallocated to the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line from September until December 2008.[1][3]
