Train Set Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
2010 Commuter travel entered a new age during 2009 when the sleek and revolutionary Hitachi Class 395 entered service. This new state of the art train with its twin power source motors quickly became the train of choice for those commuters who use the Southeastern service to London every day, saving those in the extremities of the service as much as 30 minutes or more of travel time. The specially prepared three vehicle model in this set is resplendent in the distinctive blue livery of the prototype and is justifiably named the “Blue Rapier”. Additional RailRoad coaches are available to extend the train to a full 6 car unit. (See page 118). Both power and dummy cars have headlights that operate in the direction of travel. The track circuit fits easily on the 1600 x 1270cm MidiMat and by adding Hornby Track Packs and Accessory Packs can soon be developed into a very effective model railway layout.
