The Makato stock, also known as the Blue trains, was a type of rolling stock operated by El Kadsre City Metro from 1954 to 1987. Named after Makoto Kayos, the eldest daugher of El Kadsre's founding father Hiroshi Kayos, and introduced in 1954 to replace half of the Brown Swingers, the Makato trains were a first to feature double passenger doors. The Makato trains got the nickname of the Blue trains due to its navy blue and light blue color scheme. 630 Makatos have been built between 1954 and 1970.

The Makato underwent the refurbishment program in 1982, which removed opening windows the single headlight in the front of the train and added power-operating doors, double headlights and new saloon lighting, which were made to resemble the then-recent M21 trains. 177 out of 630 Makatos have been refurbished. In 1987, all Makatos were pulled from service due to the presence of abestos in the stock and were buried in the Nakatori desert along with the Red Carrier trains. Only 7 Makato trains survived. Makato units #104 and the refurbished #31 are preserved at the Wakatotan Railway Museum and units #336, T#203 and #96, the second of which was saved from being buried in the Nakatori desert at the last second by a preservation group, currently runs on the Kaowa Railway. Makato units #01 and #330 currently run on the Holiday Train schedule.
