Chizu Express HOT7000 series "Super Hakuto", the pendulum type express train that connects Kansai and San'in region, will be released as a scale model by KATO.The HOT7000 "Super Hakuto" is the third sector Chizu Express' through operation limited express train that started service in December 1994.Based on JR Shikoku's Series 2000, this is a controlled, natural pendulum type diesel locomotive with a stainless steel body.
Operating at a maximum speed of 130 km/h, it connects Kyoto to Tottori and Kurayoshi in about 3 hours and 30 minutes, dramatically improving the convenience of the previous route between the Kinki region and Tottori.
The name "HOT" comes from the initials of Hyogo, Okayama, and Tottori, as well as hot springs and the "warmth" of the people of the San'in region. It also won the Good Design Award in 2008.
The side windows, which reflect like a mirror, are realistically reproduced with half-silvered mirror glass. KATO will release in 6-car set of additional cars that can be seen when there are many passengers.
