Nippon Sharyo, Ltd. (日本車輌製造株式会社, Nippon Sharyō Seizō kabushiki gaisha, literally "Japan Vehicles Manufacture Company" and formerly Nippon Sharyo Seizo Kaisha, Ltd.), formed in 1896, is a major rolling stock manufacturer based in Nagoya, Japan. In 1996, it abbreviated its name to "日本車両" Nippon Sharyō. Its shortest abbreviation is Nissha "日車". It was a listed company on Nikkei 225 until 2004. It is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Nagoya Stock Exchange as ticker 7102. In 2008, Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) became the majority shareholder (50.1%) of the financially struggling Nippon Sharyo making the firm a "consolidated subsidiary" of JR Central. In July 2012 Nippon Sharyo USA started production in their new facility in Rochelle, Illinois. The facility closed at the end of October 2018 due to a lack of orders.
I.F.E EMUs Working on Caracas-Cua commuter line Railway System Ezequiel Zamora (Central)
Rheostatic series (KRL Rheostatik Mild Steel and Stainless) (The train was also made by Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Hitachi):
All Rheostatic EMUs have stopped operating in the Jabodetabek lines and is currently waiting to be scrapped.
Shinko Diesel Multiple Units (a.k.a. KRD MCW 301 and KRD MCW 302[circular reference]) are used for short-distance lines such as Surabaya-Lamongan, Surabaya-Sidoarjo, etc.
KRD MCW 301 and 302 initially uses the Shinko DMH17H engine and Niigata TCR 2.5 transmission
Note: The DMUs built in 1976 are now used as regular loco-hauled trains without engines. The DMUs made in 1978, 1980, & 1982 upwards are refurbished with a Cummins Engine (NT885-R) and Voith turbo (T211re.3) transmission.
The new rolling stock, known as the MRTJ 1000, was built specifically for the Jakarta MRT
Nippon Sharyo, in 1936, built the JNR Class C56 steam locomotive number C56 31, which was used in 1943 to open the infamous Thai-Burma Railway, as stylized in the movie The Bridge Over the River Kwai, built by over 100,000 Allied POW and other slave labourers. This restored steam engine now sits in the foyer of the Yasukuni War Museum in Tokyo. Japanese veterans groups raised funds to return the locomotive from Burma to Japan in 1979.
During World War II, Nippon Sharyo, like many major Japanese companies, drew upon prisoner of war labour to maintain war production. The POW camp at Narumi provided Allied POW forced labour for Nippon Sharyo.
