Of the vehicles operated on the "Thunderbird" that connects Osaka to Kanazawa and Wakura Onsen, the 683 series 4000 series is a 9-car fixed train group manufactured between 2009 and 2011. Unlike the 681 series and 683 series 0 series, both leading cars are characterized by the appearance equipped with a frontal head with a front through door (black 683 is preparatory work) and a single arm pantograph. In addition, an offset collision countermeasure structure is adopted to improve safety.

The 683 series 2000 series is active in the 12-car train, which is combined with the 9-car train such as the 4000 series during the high-customer season. With the opening of Kanazawa on the Hokuriku Shinkansen, refreshment work was carried out, and since 2015, the current interior and painting have been renewed in sequence.


By adopting a newly developed slotless motor, it demonstrates smoother and quieter running performance than existing motors.

This is a 5 Car Add On Set, to be used with 10-1745 *JR Series 683-4000 Thunderbird 4 Car Powered Set. The car book case of Add-on Set(5-Cars) can hold the cars of Basic Set (4-Cars).



  •     Prototype is before renewal of T48 train belonging to JR West Kanazawa General Vehicle Office
  •     Beautifully reproduces the old Thunderbird color
  •     Adopting a newly developed slotless motor realizes smoother and quieter running
  •     The non-slip part on the cab roof is expressed in the same color as the roof color
  •     The shape of the underfloor equipment that is partially different from the 0/2000 series is reproduced
