Nine six-car trains of the 117 Series were used in the Nagoya area at the end of the JNR era, but in 1986, in order to improve transportation capacity, the lead cars were newly manufactured and the trains were reconfigured to form 18 four-car trains.

After the privatisation, it was taken over by Central JR and in 1989 it was changed to a white body with an orange belt, and after 1994, the painting was simplified.

The actual trains continued to operate after the introduction of the 313 series, and were seen running together with the 313 series. In 2009, one of the trains was reprinted in the revival colour (JNR paint) with a brown belt.



  • Series Kuha 117-0 has no side display and is equipped with a toilet.
  • This special set consists of 8 cars in revival colours and central JR colours, allowing you to recreate the mixed colour combinations seen only in JR Tokai. Special stickers are also included.
  • Dummy couplers are already installed on the first car. By replacing the couplers, you can recreate the 8-car train set made of combined two 4 car sets that was seen in the real train.(The 8-car set is pre-installed with coupling parts).
  • The power cars of the 4-car set are not fitted with traction tires. The power cars of the especially planned set are equipped with traction tires.
  • The head and tail lights of each lead car are illuminated on the front display (with a light-off switch).
  • 'New Rapid' is already installed as the front display sign. Other front displays 'Rapid' 'Section rapid' 'Local' come with this set for exchange. The 8-car set also comes with a plain-colored plastic sprue with 6 pieces display signs.
  • DCC Friendly.

The 4-car set A and the special project are 8-car book cases, and the 4-car set B is a 4-car paper box package. The 4-car set A book case can store the 4-car set B vehicle
