1 review for 10-1686 *JR 813-200 Series 3 Car Powered Set

  1. Nathaniel Carr (verified owner)

    One of the best sets you can get for Japanese EMU's - the motor itself is virtually silent and the silver/ribbed sides add a classic Amtrak feel to the typical Japanese EMU's. The red highlights and the 'full glass' stylised front really helps this stand out and the bright blue panto graph equipment just adds to the experience, all that for a lower price than many other EMUs! Although it does not come in the fancier KATO packaging as its only a 3 car set.
