(HO) Series 24 "Yumekukan"


Following the success of the"Hokutosei," the three cars were manufactured by JR East in 1989 to examine the trend of the next generation of limited express sleeping cars. In March of the same year, they were displayed at the Yokohama Exotic Showcase, and in October guests of the World Congress on Railway Research drove in them. Afterwards, they were turned into a restaurant in front of Kaihimmakuhari Station, but in January 1991they started regular commercial operation with the "Hokutosei Tomamu Ski" train. Following that, the " Yumekukan" operated as extra trains for the "Hokutosei" on the route between Tokyo and Sapporo, and also drove to other places like San'in and Kyushu. The cars were withdrawn in March 2009 and the dining car and lounge car are being preserved in a mall in Saitama, while the sleeping car functions as a restaurant in Tokyo.
Modeled with their indoor furnishings, such as the curtains and lamps. Enjoy running the Yumekukan with the Hokutosei by coupling them to the '1-323 (HO) EF81 81 "Hokutosei"(North Star) color', which will be released at the same time, and the '(HO) Series 24 Sleeper Express "Hokutosei"'!
