For the system, "Panorama DX",1000 seriesIs written as "Panorama Super".Also, when describing a specific organization,ToyohashiOf the first carVehicle number(Example: "8801 formation" if the vehicle number of the leading car in Toyohashi is the formation of Mo 8801).

Background of appearance

Meitetsu1961Since then, a panoramic car has been introduced as a limited express vehicle.[6]..After that, he was involved in the development of the panoramic car.Akira ShiraiFormulated the concept of "Panorama Dome Car" as its development type[7]..This is done by installing a second-floor seat dome with the floor raised not only before and after the formation but also in the middle part.[8]The idea was to provide passengers with a different view from the observation seats at the front.[9]..This plan is actually examined and a model for examination[Note 4]And a mockup of the second floor seats were also made[7]But he was the president at that timeMotoo TsuchikawaDid not realize because it was judged to be "premature"[7].

after that1980 eraWhen entering, the appearance of a limited express vehicle, which is the successor to the panoramic car 20 years after its appearance, has come to be desired.[10]..At this time, the form of vacation trips also changed, and the number of trips by family or small group increased.[10]..Also, along the Meitetsu linePrivate carIt was thought that it was essential to introduce the goodness of private cars to railroad cars in order to accommodate travel in small groups.[10]..Based on this way of thinking, we have created a private room style guest room with a more spacious living space than the private car so that passengers can get a space and relaxation that the private car does not have.[10]Above, we decided to add new charm by making the front observation seat a high-decker structure.[10]..In addition, the vehicle nickname will also be decided by open recruitment.[10].

The 8800 series "Panorama DX" was introduced based on this concept.

Vehicle overview

Panorama DX appeared in a 2-car train, and later it was operated as a 3-car train by connecting accompanying cars in the middle.

Changes during expansion

Manufactured in 1987 (secondary car)
Two 2-car trains were manufactured.The seats in the observatory have been reduced in seat pitch to five rows in the front and rear, and the front and second rows have wide seats so that three parents and children can sit side by side.[21]..In addition, the 6-person division room was abolished, and the 4-person division room was increased by 1 room.[21].. The two-person room has been changed to an open seat[21]In addition to abolishing the partition and changing to a seat for one person that rotates 360 degrees, a private room for four people that was completely partitioned between the deck and the end of the car, which originally had a six-person compartment, was set up.[29].

Only the Sa 3 type is manufactured for 8850-car formation, and all are odd-numbered cars.[11]..As for the bogie, we newly built the FS098 type bogie, which is an S-type Minden type air spring bogie.[11]..Five 4-person compartments were placed on the sea side (on the left side when heading from Toyohashi to Gifu), and nine seats for one person with 5-degree rotation were placed on the mountain side (on the right side when heading from Toyohashi to Gifu).[11]..Also, 8 floors cmHigh[11], Established a lounge with a capacity of 10 people with 10 sofas[29], A tea machine was also installed in the lounge[11]..In addition, a satellite broadcast receiver was installed on a trial basis only for the 8857.[11]..Toilets and washrooms were installed at the end of the Toyohashi car[29].


From the beginning to the formation of 3 cars

Two panorama DX trains were first introduced, and business operations began on December 2, 1984.[30], On the first dayInuyama Yuen StationとUtsumi Station"Departure ceremony" was held at[30].. One train is operated as a limited express connecting Minamichita and Inuyama[30], Another formation was used for groups and events[30]..At that time, the reserved-seat ticket for limited express trains at Meitetsu was 250 yen.[31]However, a charge of 500 yen was set for Panorama DX.[31]..In addition, a hand towel service and in-car sales were also provided inside the Panorama DX car.[30].

The following year, in 1985, during the New Year's first visit, we also boarded the Toyokawa Line.[13]However, the special express train that used Panorama DX at this time was connected to a white belt car, so even though it was the same train, the seat reservation fee was different depending on the car.[13]..In addition, Panorama DX was also used for the Hatsumode group train, but due to the lack of line capacity on the Toyokawa line, the AL car used for regular trains.[Note 9]There was also a scene of connecting with[13]..Since Panorama DX cannot be connected to AL cars, the driver of the regular train and the driver of Panorama DX performed cooperative driving while giving a signal with a horn.[33]..This year, Panorama DX was released by the Japan Railfan Club.Blue ribbon awardWon[34]..This body structure appeared the following yearIzukyu"Resort 21It is said that it also affects the front view vehicles that appeared after that.[35].. Two trains were added in 1987[36]However, some specifications have been changed, such as an increase in the number of observation seats, in the additional vehicle at this time.[36].

In 1989, the number of intermediate cars was increased, and from July 7th of the same year, all trains started operating as 15-car trains.[11].. For the 3-car train, the seat moquette and carpet of the leading car were replaced.[11]In addition, the output of the traction motor has been updated (75 kW → 90 kW, current limit value 320 A → 380 A, weak magnetic field coefficient 40. %→ 33%) and snow-resistant brake equipment has been added.[11].

Converted to a limited express between suburban cities

However, after that, as the number of tourist limited express users decreased,[29], The operation of Panorama DX will be changed in the timetable revision on November 1992, 11.[29].

About 8807 trains excluding 3 trains that will be operated as group cars when changing the usage[37], The interior of the intermediate car has been changed to a normal two-person rotating reclining seat[37]In addition, the capacity of the observation seats has been unified into four rows in the front and rear according to the primary car.[38]..In addition, the 2-person private room of the secondary car was also changed to a 4-person division room.[37]..After the usage change, Panorama DX will be operated as a limited express between suburban cities that directly connects to the Nishio Line and Tsushima Line.[39]At this time, the seat reservation fee for Panorama DX was changed to the same amount as other trains.[40].

After that, the limited express reached a top speed of 120 km / hThe Panorama DX with a maximum speed of 110 km / h was subject to selection.[29]..For this reason, all vehicles were out of operation due to the timetable revision on January 2005, 1, and all vehicles were scrapped by March.[29].

After the car was scrapped, only the front part of the Mo 8803 was preserved and exhibited at the Maigi Inspection Yard.[41].
