750

Description:
Nagoya Railroad Co, Ltd. (alias Meitetsu) class 750 electric streetcar. This class of streetcars were manufactured as early as in 1928, but has been used in everyday traffic until at least 2001. Very well done simulation, which requires a special technique to drive because of its braking system. Also, there is no speedometer, so the driver has to estimate the speed to avoid overspeeding. Photorealistic driver's stand with manometers (pressure gauges), clock and a combined gauge board illumination and pilot lamp.
