The Kiha 283 series is a pendulum-type limited express diesel train that debuted in 1997 as the "Super Ozora" (Sapporo-Kushiro). Boasting a maximum operating speed of 130 km/h, it has significantly shortened the journey between Sapporo and Kushiro from 4 hours 25 minutes to 3 hours 40 minutes. From March 2023, the Sekihoku Main Line limited express trains ``Okhotsk'' (Sapporo - Abashiri) and ``Taisetsu'' (Asahikawa - Abashiri) will begin operating, and the side of the first car will be named after the local government along the line. The illustration has been pasted. When running as ``Okhotsk Taisetsu'', it does not use a pendulum mechanism and is active in a 3-4 car formation.

Just like the actual vehicle, the vehicle body does not tilt even when passing through curves, allowing you to enjoy realistic driving scenes with a 3-4 car formation. The illustrations of municipalities along the line on the side of the lead car reproduce "Asahikawa/Abashiri" for the 3-car set, and "Engaru, Kitami, Bihoro" for the 4-car set.
