Starter set including train, track and controller.

The Class 800 AT300 is a bi-mode multiple unit built by Hitachi for Great Western Railway and London North Eastern Railway. They use electric motors for traction, but in addition to operating on track with overhead electric wires, they have diesel generators to enable them to operate on unelectrified track. Based on the Hitachi A-train design, the trains were built by Hitachi between 2014 and 2018.

The trains were assembled at the Hitachi Newton Aycliffe facility from bodyshells shipped from Kasado, Japan.

As part of its production, the Class 800 is a part of the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) and is in the Hitachi AT300 product family. Their respective train operating company has also given the units separate brands; under Great Western Railway, they are known as Intercity Express Trains and under London North Eastern Railway, they are known as Azuma.

1:148 Scale model of a Class 800/0 Electric Multi-unit decorated in a unique GWR livery featuring "Paddington Bear" as seen in 2018. This special livery was produced to mark the 60 year anniversary of the Paddington Bear stories by Michael Bond. This colour scheme was unveiled by Karen Jankel (Michael Bond's Daughter) at London Paddington on Wednesday the 10th of Januay 2018.

We are delighted to be able to present this iconic train, made by the legendary Japanese manufacturer KATO, a world leading company in the world of N Scale model railways. We'd also like to thank Hitachi, GWR and LNER for their helpfulness and assistance in bringing this project to market.
