Kato Japan - N Scale - 800 Series Kyushu-Shinkansen
?Tsubame?6-Car Set, Pwd
N Scale 800 Series
Introduced earlier this year in Kyushu, the most southern major
island of Japan, the Series 800 is the latest generation of the
well-known Shinkansen ?bullet train.? The white streamlined body
with dull red accents is a perfect blend of speed and power. Black,
and the dark red Japanese lacquer colour, feature on the roof to
re-create the colours of a swallow, the bird from which the
Japanese names this train ?Tsubame?. Currently operating in the
southern region of Kyushu with 70% of its route under tunnels, this
new kid on the rails is able to achieve speeds in excess of 260 kph
(160mph) despite inclines up to 35%!
