Information about Tokyu was taken from the following sources: "Tokyu" by Michikazu Miyata, Hoikusha Books; The Railway Pictorial, July 1994; Toshi Kotsu Nenpo 1994 (Urban Transportation Yearbook). I also thank Naoaki Okada in Tokyo for sending me lots of information on Tokyu, especially about the history and the rolling stock.
