E1 Series Shinkansen

The E1 series Shinkansen was in service from July 1994 until September 2012 and were the first double-decker trains built for Japan’s Shinkansen.

Originally intended to be classified as 600 series, the E1 series trains were introduced to relieve overcrowding on services used by commuters on the Tohoku Shinkansen and Joetsu Shinkansen. Along with the E4 series, these double-decker trains were known by the marketing name “Max” (Multi-Amenity eXpress).
