――The popular 16th EF55 No. 1 is now on sale in response to your request, and the 13mm gauge version is also on sale.
――In 1936, due to the streamlined boom from time to time, C53, C55, Moha 52, Kiha 43000, etc. appeared one after another, and EF55 is also an electric locomotive born following that trend.
-Based on the well-established EF53, the car body without rivets and bolts has streamlined only the first end and gabled at the second end.
--Initially, I belonged to the Numazu engine district and was engaged in towing the limited express [Tsubame] [Fuji], but the production was discontinued with only 3 vehicles because it was necessary to change direction with the turntable and the skirt hindered inspection and maintenance. Was done.
-The model is a prototype of the appearance when the deck of the second end was remodeled after the war and was active on the Tokaido Line.
――The most highlight, the streamlined front, is faithfully reproduced by lost wax, and the coreless motor on the prefabricated bogie frame and the gearbox operated by the equalizer realizes smooth running, and it is possible to pass through the curve of 700R.
--Etched assembly type PS14 pantograph is attached.
