Kato will renew and commercialize the Ku 5000, which was used nationwide for automobile transportation in the 1960s. The Ku-5000 is a car transporter that appeared in 1966 (Showa 41), when vehicle production in Japan continued to increase, with the aim of standardizing automobile transport. In the blink of an eye, it reigned as a national railway freight carrier, and at its peak, the special limited express (later express) train "Arrow" was operated, and up to 20 trains of exclusive trains were active throughout the country. We will review the details in detail, such as hand shaping, and release it with new dies using the latest KATO technology. We have also commercialized in-vehicle accessories that reproduce the condition of a car with a protective sheet, which was actually seen in loading vehicles. Car transportation by Ku5000 was once abolished in March 1984 at the end of the Japanese National Railways, but Nissan Motor Tochigi began in March 1985 with the strong demand for passenger cars both in Japan and overseas. Rail transport of factory-made cars is back. Transport from Utsunomiya to Yokohama Honmoku (export), Chidoricho (domestic), as well as dedicated freight trains, was carried out to local areas. After a two-color painting, from red one at the time of its appearance, to blue-red, it became a blue-white-red tricolor that was also the corporate color of Nissan Motor at that time, and the image was changed. At that time, the Cedric and Pulsar, which were often seen among the cars installed at the time of the Ku 5000, were selected as prototypes, and they were released in eight models in seven different molding colors. Suitable as a vehicle for loading "K5000 Tricolor". In addition, you can enjoy road accessories such as Dio-town and Unitram, and reproduction of the loading scene on a car train that stops at the freight station plate.
