Description

This is a train model which is meant to be operated on standard model railroad sets.

The EF63 class appeared as a secondary locomotive to help trains up and down the steep slope of the Usui Pass, with 25 built in 1962.

It was connected with trains passing through the Usui Pass (the Yokogawa station side), and it was operated between Yokokawa and Karuizawa.

In 1997, the Nagano Shinkansen started business due to the abolition of the Usui Pass section, and all cars have retired, but nearly half of them are still present in preservation and can be driven if you acquire the proper license.
