February KATO train news from Train Trax UK

Above you can see the start of February announcements from Kato in Japan. All the items you can see are due in the middle of the year.

I've put the latest items from the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) at the top - as those are the most popular amongst Train Trax's customers. The announcement here is for a new type of wagon which can carry logs or containers. You can buy the wagons and 3 packs of log loads individually, or packs of 4 wagons with with logs ro containers. These can be pulled by either the Ge4 locos or by the Allegra sets  which are due in the next couple of months. The wagons are designed such that if you buy one of each set, plus the individual one then you won't have any repeated numbers.

On the posters above you'll also see some HO rolling stock, and lit road vehicles for the 'Just Plug' system which Kato is distributing in Japan. We don't plan to stock these here but may be able arrange special orders if interested.

We will be getting the EH500 Japanese freight loco and KOKI 106/107 container wagons the 131, 787 Series, Series 205-600 and Series 235-1000. Quite a variety! All available for pre-order now.

In other news we've had deliveries of some new items this week - take a look at our 'Just Arrived' category. You'll need to be quick as there's just a few of each item left after pre-orders. More deliveries due next week - some of which I'm particularly excited about.

Not everything sells as quickly as we'd like, even though all the KATO trains are lovely. Hence we have our Sale page. Items on this page are unlikely to be re-stocked, but as they go out of stock we'll try to add something different throughout the year.

I'm sending this email a day or so earlier than I normally would as I'll be away from HQ for a few days. There will be no despatch of parcels on Friday 9th or Tuesday 13th February. Thanks for your patience.

Best wishes,

Think you can get some of these items cheaper by buying from a big outfit in Japan? Read my thoughts on why we are better than the Japanese Elephants.
