T1 is the physical transport, delivered on 4 wires, 2 send and 2 receive, and capable of delivering 1.544 Mbps. T1 defines the voltage states.
DS1 is a service that is readily built on top of a T1 transport. The DS1 delivers 1.536 Mbps. With a framing and coding applied to a T1, you can interpret the voltage transitions as bits. You can also deliver a DS1 via DS3 service.
O'Reilly's book "T1 Survival Guide" goes into this a good bit.
