Specific Item Information: The Eurostar “three capital train”, which travels to and from London, Paris, and Brussels, consists of 20 cars including the 2 end cars.

This new release represents the Eurostar’s recently refurbished paint job – introduced in late 2015 along with a batch of new equipment. It replaces the previous mostly-white scheme with a bold silver, navy and yellow scheme. The full 20 Car consist can be assembled by combining the #10-1297 8-Car Base set and three (3) of the #10-1298 4-car add-on sets

Body Style Information: Kato Introduced it first TGV model in 1983, the 10-091 6-Unit set.

The box sets consist of either a push-pull engine pair with transition coaches and standard coaches and the "add-on" sets consist of standard coaches only. With the push-pull sets, typically one engine is powered and one is a dummy. Coupler types vary from set to set and some sets even carry different couplers for different parts of the train. Newer sets have removable noses for prototypically accurate "double" trains. All the sets contain movable pantographs but none are operating in the sense they cannot draw power to the engine from catenary wires.

The Kato model has evolved over the years. The early engines were typical of 90's vintage kato mechanisms and run smoothly and quietly. They can be converted to DCC but only with shell and decoder modifications. The LED's in particular can be a challenge to wire properly. Later engines sport Kato's "shock-absorber" design for even quieter operation and support full DCC readiness through a NEM 651 6-pin decoder socket.

Prototype Information: Introduced after the opening of Channel tunnel in November of 1994, the Eurostar travels at 300 km/h, making a 3 hour trip between London and Paris and a 2 hour and 40 minute trip between London and Brussels. The Eurostar was developed through the co-operation of 3 countries - France, Belgium and the U.K. – using the French TGV as its conceptual baseline.
