Information on This?
#1
Anyone have information about this train set? We have had this set since the beginning of our playing with these trains. It was the first set we had seen with a bullet train and many coaches and it was from an American seller. I am not sure the name but I see them on the Japan Auctions going for quite a lot. Is this rare or a limited edition? Anyone know?

Howdy Super!

The set you've got looks to be a formerly standard release in the Plarail Shops in Japan! Some of the bullet trains that are released in a pack giving them those four coaches with the motorized engine and tail engine without any track; however, the one you have is one that was released with some track as an add-on accessory including a full train. Most of the reason why the price goes sky-high for this set is because that engine and its consist are heavily rare to find like that, being a six car train and all; most of the time, the train is retailed like sunhuntin's three car consist.

Many thanks for the help guys. It looks like this may be a variation of the Shinkansen 100 and called Fresh Green?

It does look similar to Sunhuntns set but upon closer looks the cars are different in where the doors are, maybe a bit longer & the paint scene on the sides looks to be in a different spot. The front nose foil under the train has some detail and there is no black roof pantograph and there seems to be a bit more detail to the roof.

yes, there are very slight differences. mine is called a shinkansen kodama. for some reason, i love these trains with green on them. always get drawn to the green on jauce.
