●The 12-series passenger cars were manufactured from 1969 to 1978 and are express-type seat passenger cars capable of a maximum speed of 110km/h. They are equipped with air conditioning powered by a diesel generator under the floor, which is comparable to the electric trains and diesel railcars of the time, and became the basis for the new passenger cars that appeared later, the 14-series and later. Initially, they were operated as group and special trains and for transporting passengers to the Osaka Expo, and later as regular express trains, and were active throughout the country except for Hokkaido. In later years, they were used in various ways, such as being converted into commuter trains and joyful trains, and can still be seen in action as passenger cars for temporary use.

◆This product is essential for enjoying the <10-1914/1915 Passenger Car Formation Set Express "Sanbe" / Express "Kaimon Nichinan">, which will be released at the same time. You can recreate the night express trains of the past by combining them.
