In 1950 Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) ordered three trams from Teikoku Sharyo company for use on Mino Cho line. This company just received the order from Tokyo for nine cars of 6000-series (cars 6216-6223; delivered in December 1950 - January 1951), so Meitetsu order was based on Tokyo design. The cars were numbered 571-573 and were fitted with KS40J trucks. In 1953/54 Meitetsu ordered two more cars with similar design from Nippon Sharyo (574-575 series) which were assigned to Gify city line (car 573 was also transferred to Gifu line in 1960). In 1974 cars 571 and 572 were equipped with semi-pantographs and in 1977 they were also transferred to Gify city line, being converted to one-man operation in 1978. Car 573 was scraped in 1988, but cars 571 and 572 remained in the Meitetsu roster for use mainly in rush hours until March 2005 when Gify city line was abandoned.
