The Meitetsu 100 series (名鉄100系?) is a commuter electric multiple unit type operated by Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) in Japan since 1978. There is also a 200 series type, operated since 1991, which is very similar to the 100 series. The 100 series and 200 series trains run on the Inuyama Line and Toyota Line and provide through service to the Tsurumai Line in Nagoya Municipal Subway.[1][2]
