  • A0447 – JNR 103 series EC 3 car add-on (Chuo line – orange)
  • A0536 – 103 series EC 7 car set (Fukuchiyama line – yellow)

  • A4121 – JNR 185-200 series EC 7 car set ‘Shinkansen Relay’ (white with green stripe)
  • A4141 – 185-200 series EC 7 car set (Furu Furu ski train – white/blue/multicoloured)
  • A4151 – 185-200 series EC 7 car set (Tamachi depot, new colour – white with green/orange panels)
  • A6050 – Meitetsu 5500 series EC 4 car set (original colour – pink/purple)
  • A6051 – Meitetsu 5500 series EC 2 car add-on  (original colour – pink/purple)
  • A6059 – Meitetsu 5500 series EC 4 car set (later colour – scarlet)
  • A6060 – Meitetsu 5500 series EC 2 car add-on (later colour – scarlet)
  • A6081 – Hokusou Tetsudo 9100 series EC 8 car set ‘C-Flyer’ (1st type – silver/blue/yellow)
  • A6085 – Urban Development Corporation 9100 series EC 8 car set ‘C-Flyer’ (2nd type – silver/blue/yellow)

The 9100 series is a long- awaited release for me, as it can be seen on the Keikyu line to Haneda Airport and runs via the Asakusa subway to the Hokusou Kodan line.

The 185-200 sets are upgraded re-releases. The 185 series was MicroAce’s first non-steam loco release, way back in 1999 !!!
