Only 1 left in stock


E353 „Azusa/Kaiji“ of JR East Japan now joins the series of Kato Starter Sets.
E353, which started the business operation in December, 2017, was a successor of E257 and E351 that had been in service under the nicknames of “Azusa” or “Kaiji”. As a major character, it has high curving performance equal to E351 by employing car-body tilting system using air spring. The simple and powerful paint-scheme feels very speedy like symbolizing the next generation limited express train, donning violet belts on the alpine white body.

This is a starter set comprising a train, Uni-track and power pack, all in one, recommendable to beginners of model railroad hobby. The power pack is standard SX with high output of 1.2A. UK plug will be supplied.

A full train can be made by adding 10-1523 E353 “Azusa/Kaiji” 5-car add-on set and 10-1524 3-Car auxiliary set to this train.

    So far really impressed first n gauge set . Track is really easy to put together and take apart . Train looks ace going around with directional lights .train doesn’t move until about 3rd notch on controller and at full ( ridiculous scale speed ) train is quite loud . However stick to the top 3rd the controller and have amazing slow speed and quiet smooth fast ranges . Excellent service from train trax too can’t fault them
