  • A5933 – Kiha40-700 series DC 3 car set (all powered) ‘Fox + Crab + Squid’ (originally in sets A5915/A5916/A5917)
  • A7007 – C53-43 series SL (JNR – streamlined) – originally A7001
  • A7008 – C53-45 series SL (JNR – without deflector) – originall A7002
  • A8575 – Shiki810 series FC heavy load transporter + 2x Yo8000 guards van (‘Toshiba’ blue)

Re-releases include …

  • A5931 – Kiha400 series DC 4 car set ‘Rishiri’ + 14 series PC (white/gray with red stripe)
  • A8574 – Shiki800 series FC heavy load transporter + 2x Yo8000 guards van (‘Nippon Express’ black)

I have been waiting for the Keisei ‘Skyliner’ to be modelled for almost 10 years, and was disappointed when MicroAce first announced it, and it was the older version  – now we have the current version which most people would have seen or ridden on if you entered Japan via Narita Airport.
