KATO is proud to present the Thalys PBA, a high speed train that is often considered the representative of international trains in Europe. The Thalys PBA runs between the cities Paris (P), Brussels (B) and Amsterdam (A).
Also known as the “Train Rouge”, it has been in operation since 1996 and is one of the most important travel methods between France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
KATO’s scale model is a reproduction of the 20th anniversary train that started operation in 2016. This model is perfect in combination with other high speed trains such as the ICE 4 or the Eurostar.
● The red doors in contrast with the color of the side windows are the distinctive features of the 20th anniversary model that was released in 2016.
● With the included drawbar, it is possible to combine two consists and recreate the 20-car formation that is currently used in Europe.
● Stable running due to new flywheel in the power unit.
● Head/tail light lit.
● DCC compatible.
