new Kato N700 Shinkansen & E233 release

Kato have finally announced the release of their N700 Shinkansen model …

Due (so far) for release in November, it will be like the recent 500 & 700 set configurations, and have a 4 car main set, and 4 car & 8 car addons. Rumours are that it will have a tilt mechanism like the prototype !!! Also announced is the model of the newest train in Tokyo – the E233 Chuo line set, that will replace all the aging 201’s within the next year. It’s not clear year whether these 2 items will make up a 6+4 car set or a 10 car set. Kato may beat Tomix with their E233 release, but Tomix’s N700 is due out in September 😆
