Wasn't there a Hakone Tozan conductor who got some fame for his singing? Fine though he may have been, this Nagoya Rinkai employee is a true artist. Ignore the computer anime girl voice in the first few minutes (worse than nails on chalkboard), you are in for a treat. This is the Showa-machi Line, which unfortunately saw its last train around 2009. Somewhere else I read that Meirin classifies their out-of-service lines as suspended, not discontinued or abandoned. I inferred that this emphasizes possible reopening. Here's hoping. This is an interesting operation which at its peak had a lot of track. I'm not sure how many customers they're switching here, but one is Toagosei, apparently the owner of Krazy Glue.

On July 21st, Meitetsu's four DEKI 600 electric locomotives were moved to Meiden-Chikkō Station for scrapping. Interesting facts from the English Wikipedia article: Built between 1943 and 1945 by Toshiba 603 and 604 were not originally for Meitetsu; they were intended to go to Hainan Island, but couldn't be shipped there. 601 and 602 were based at Inuyama, 603 and 604 at Shinkawa they weighed 40 tons and were rated at 440kW (about 590hp) These were basically surplus after the arrival of the new EL120s. Meitetsu's other old locos, the two DEKI 400s, will also be retired. http://railf.jp/news/2015/07/24/130000.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meitetsu_DeKi_600 a year ago, still in service, by kanazawa10026: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Djm6NOyKMik end of the line, literally and figuratively, also by kanazawa10026:
