The EF56 was created in 1937 and, together with the EF57, was a representative passenger DC electric locomotive of the prewar JNR with a bold style, sporting decks in the rear and front.
This model is ideal to recreate local trains with old passenger coaches or the freight trains as they could be seen on the Tohoku Main Line by joining it with single freight cars or the 10-898 Mail Train "Tohoku" 6-Car Set, which is simultaneously receiving a re-run.
From this product on the slotless motor will be equipped, which allows for even smoother and quiet operation.
Additionally, the front wheels now have the spokes removed. Accordingly, the item number, MSRP, and barcode have been changed.
