Two 01 series cars have been transported all the way to Kumamoto Dentetsu to enter service in March. These were delivered in several generations over about 14(!) years, counting from the test formation built by Kawasaki in September 1983 to the single 6th generation formation built by Kinki in August 1997. These two were the end cars of the last 4th generation formation, built by Nippon Sharyo, in June 1992. I would not have thought that they were so old. http://railf.jp/news/2015/02/22/160000.html and Kumamoto Dentetsu is installing the Kawasaki EF-Wing trucks, video by Toshi
