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.
