#10-1494 Series E231-3000 Hachiko Line/Kawagoe Line (4-Car Set)
Hachiko Line is a railway line connecting the west part of Tokyo - Saitama - Gunma prefecture. Kawagoe Line is a railway line in Saitama Prefecture.
Series 205-3000 used in this route is replaced by Series E231-3000.
E231-3000 was originally modified from E231-0 used in Chuo Line & Sobu Line Local Train.
At KATO we model E231-3000 with a new mold.
#10-1498 Series 205-5000 Musashino Line (SAHA205 Door Big Window) (8-Car Set)
Musashino Line is a railway line from west Tokyo to Chiba prefecture via Saitama prefecture. It is a semi-circular line connecting several satellite cities near Tokyo.
Series 205-5000 used in this route is replaced by Series E231-0. E231-0 was originally modified from E231-0 used in Chuo Line & Sobu Line Local Train.
Musashino line's unit is an 8-Car unit. In the model of this time it is a feature that the windows of the 4th car and the 5th car are large only with the window of the door. The reason is complicated. Originally Yamanote line was the No. 1 car from No. 1 car, No. 3 car from No. 6 car. And only the 4th car and the 5th car were the Saikyo line. The reason is complicated. The cars 1 - 3 and cars 6 - 8 were originally Yamanote Line. And the cars 4 to 5 were originally the Saikyo Line. In other words, it is composed of used cars on multiple routes.
