The actual car appeared in 1999 as a new sleeper passenger car positioned as a further advanced vehicle of "Hokutosei", and was operated between Ueno and Sapporo with the train name "Casio pair". Due to the opening of the Hokkaido Shinkansen, the Seikan Tunnel will be operated only by Shinkansen and freight trains, and regular operation was terminated in 2016 . At present, it is operated as a group-only train called "Cassiopeia Journey" and "Cassiopeia Cruise".

Famous as a night train bound for Sapporo in the direction of Hokkaido from Ueno, the E26 Series Cassiopeia is re-commercialized into a two-passenger-only basic / add-on set.
It was released as a regular train during the heyday of its travel between Ueno and Sapporo. A head mark for an electric locomotive is included so that you can reproduce it with your own locomotive. At the same time, we will commercialize the EF81 Cassiopeia color, a traction machine with an impressive exclusive paint color. You can enjoy the atmosphere of the old days with the locomotive.

This in an unpowered, coach set. You could pull this train with EF81, ED79 or DD51 locos.

A Six Car Add On Set is available to add, creating the prototypical twelve coach train.
