Shouldn’t be too hard to motorise...

 

Cheers,

Wow pretty detailed also.  Interior etc.  And traction motors and disc brakes in the bogies.

The amount of detail included is amazing. The whole concept is curious, coming from a company that appears to have no obvious connection with railway modelling. Even though the 201s are a little modern for me, and not really something you’d expect to see on either line I’m interested in, I’ve always liked the look of them, so I may well order a set of these kits. As I noted before, it should be a simple matter to motorise them using a Black Beetle, Stanton drive or similar.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

Hopefully a good seller, is it my imagination or is Japanese HO seeing s surge in popularity?
