-The express "Kaimon" and "Nichinan" were night express trains that were active in Kyushu in the 1970s. "Kaimon" ran from Mojiko to Nishi-Kagoshima (now Kagoshima-Chuo) via the Kagoshima Main Line, while "Nichinan" ran the same section via the Nippo Main Line. The trains were characterized by their composition of 20-series sleepers, 12-series express passenger cars, and mail and baggage cars, and the 20-series sleepers were modified to be connected to the 12-series, which had a different power supply system, and were named the 1000 and 2000 series. -The full formation can be created by

combining this product with the <10-1550, 5302, 5304 12-series express passenger cars, various>, which are scheduled to be resold at the same time. In particular, there are various variations in the composition of the 12-series for the "Kaimon" and "Nichinan", so please enjoy them according to your preferences. For the express trains "Kaimon" and "Nichinan", we recommend the <3013-4 ED76 0 late model> as the locomotive.
