TAKI 1000 is a tank truck dedicated to gasoline. They are mainly operated by freight trains in eastern Japan area.
In the regulations of the Japanese railroad, the trailing end must be as follows.
(1) Attach a red reflector.
(2) Set up a red tail lamp.
This is the same for freight trains. Recent cargo trains have red reflectors attached. However, as cargo trains running in snowy areas are inferior in visibility, vehicles fitted with tail lights are now being operated.
Tomix has released a model of TAKI1000 equipped with a taillight. This time, Tomix will release a new version with the Eneos logo on it.
We also accept many other Tomix new product reservations.
