This is a end carriage from an original 0 series Shinkansen Bullet train produced by KTM KATSUMI a brass model maker based in Japan. The brass bodywork and paint finish is in great condition, has very minor blemishes but for a 50 year old model it is immaculate condition. Please see photos for details. Motor has been replaced with a Tenshodo motor unit which runs very smoothly. The headlights and nose light up white when the train moves forward and changes to red when in reverse.
Nose has sun faded, personally I'd repaint it white to blend in with the bodywork but that's up to the new owner... Pantograph is in tact and in good condition.
