This is for the light of Kato 10-1608 10-1609 "E26 "Cassiopeia" .
Kato will release the scale model of series E26 “Cassiopeia”, famous night train travelling from metropolitan Ueno northward to Sapporo in Hokkaido, this time in the basic car set and the add-on car set both consisting of passenger cars alone.
The real train appeared in 1999 as a new sleeper train ranked even higher than “North Star” and was operated between Ueno and Sapporo under the name of “Cassiopeia”. When the inauguration of Hokkaido Sinkansen bullet train line rendered the Seikan Tunnel leading to Hokkaido usable only by Shinkansen and freight trains, the night train ceased the regular operation. Currently it is operated only as an excursion train named “Travelogue Cassiopeia” and “Cassiopeia Cruise”.
This product will be released with locomotive head marks to make it possible to reproduce the night express train regularly operated in the heyday by connecting it to the locomotive on hand with the head mark.
