Nippon Sharyo
has produced nearly every car that Meitetsu

operates or has operated, a notable exception being its DeKi 600, an electric locomotive, which was produced by Toshiba, but very few units were produced for Meitetsu. The DeKi 600
DeKi 600
is one of the few locomotives that Meitetsu
Meitetsu
possesses: while the company used to engage in the freight business and still possesses some freight locomotives, it no longer carries freight on a regular basis. Meitetsu
Meitetsu
is famous for its red trains, including its famous 7000 series "Panorama Car" which was retired in 2009 after a career lasting nearly half a century. The most recent cars, however, are not solid red but rather brushed steel as in the case of the 4000 series and 5000 series, or white as in the case of the 1700 series and 2000 series. The following are the train types that Meitetsu

History[edit] While Nagoya
Nagoya
Railroad is an old company in its own right, it has over time acquired many small railway and interurban companies in the area surrounding Nagoya. Meaning many lines that belong to modern-day Nagoya
Nagoya
Railroad were constructed and operated by other companies, mostly in the prewar and wartime period. For example, it acquired its Kōwa Line on the Chita Peninsula
Chita Peninsula
from its merger with Chita Railroad on February 1, 1943 and it acquired its Mikawa Line from its merger with Mikawa Railroad.[3][4] However, the company that became modern Nagoya
Nagoya
Railroad was Aichi Horsecar Company, founded on June 25, 1894; 123 years ago (1894-06-25).[5] References[edit]
