Prototype Information;

The Container Express Train "Takara" Was Introduced In 1959 As The First Dedicated Container Freight Train In Japan Between Shiodome, Tokyo And Umeda, Osaka.

Operated At That Time By The Former JNR, The Double Traction Electric Locomotive EH10 (Kato N-Scale Model Item No. 3005-1) Was Designated To Pull 24 Chiki Container Freight Cars Plus 1 Caboose Yo 5000, 25 Cars In Total. All Of The Chiki 5000 Cars Were Painted Red And The Caboose Was Painted Light Green, And All Were Dedicated To "Takara". Moreover, The Yo 5000 Caboose Was Equipped With An Illuminated Tail Marker (Illuminated In The N Scale Model, Too). It Was Very Modern At The Time, As Most Freight Trains Were Only Painted Black.
