Kato Announce N Scale British Class 800 IEP

Kato Announce N Scale British Class 800 IEP

Published: 31/07/2019 09:31:24

High-speed train is due for release is 2021.

Kato Hitachi Class 800

KATO are following on from the success of their N Scale Eurostar by advancing into solely British territory - by producing the Hitachi Class 800 IEP, which has been in use on UK high-speed lines since 2017.

Hitachi are onboard, so it will be a fully licenced and accurate model, up to the usual high standard that we expect from Kato. Licences are being negotiated with both GWR and LNER to produce the most up-to-date liveries running today. East Midland Railways have just announced that they are procuring a fleet of Class 800s for the Midland Mainline, so there is scope for more liveries.

This model will be in British N Scale (1:148), and is due for release in 2021.

We do not currently have any information on liveries, part numbers, prices, or configurations (although a powered set/add on set configuration is likely, with DCC readiness). Keep an eye out for future news from Gaugemaster for more details.

More details are expected to be announced at The International N Gauge Show in September.
