The Meitetsu 1380 series (名鉄1380系) was an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the private railway operator Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) in Japan from 2003 until September 2015. The unique four-car train was converted from a former 1030/1230 series trainset which sustained accident damage in 2002.


The single four-car set, numbered 1384, was formed as follows.[1]

Designation Mc1' Mc2' M1 Mc2
Numbering 1384 1334 1584 1534


Passenger accommodation consisted of a mixture of transverse seating with flip-over seat backs and some longitudinal seating.[2]


A 1030/1230 series train (set 1131) in April 2008

The 1380 set was introduced in 2003, reformed from former 1030/1230 series six-car set 1134, which sustained damage to the limited express (1030 series) cars in a level crossing accident in 2002.[2] The limited express cars were scrapped, and a new cab was added to the former intermediate car 1384, creating a new four-car set for use on commuter services.[2] The train was also repainted from the original red and white limited express livery into the standard Meitetsu commuter train livery of all-over red.[2]

Set 1384 made its last run on 2 September 2015, before being taken out of service.[3]
