Electric locomotive EF510, transferred from JR East Japan to JR Freight, will be made in HO scale to look very powerful. It is characterized with the color scheme which has a shooting star removed from the original Hokutosei (North Star) color scheme in the design accented by a golden belt on the blue body. The locomotives in this livery pull container trains traversing the coast on Japan Sea from north to south along with those in other color schemes.
 The concept for this product to materialize is a handy HO scale locomotive. It negotiates 360 mm radius when run alone. The headlight is turned on when advancing. The taillights are turned off when pulling a train, the right and left taillights are turned on when deadheaded alone. Only one of the two side lights is turned on while switching trains.
The EF510 is an electric locomotive that supports alternating currents and was launched for operations on the Japan Sea Trunk Line in 2002.
It is referred to by the nickname "Red Thunder" and was introduced as a replacement for the EF81 that had been in use in the same area.
