Kato Kobo Customized Caltrain Commuter Set

Caltrain Bi-levels:
Caltrain provides commuter rail service along the San Francisco Peninusla, through the South Bay to San Jose and Gilroy. Trains operate out of San Francisco and San Jose on an approximately hourly basis every weekday, with more frequent service provided during commute hours and for special events such as sporting events.

Currently, Caltrain operates a fleet of nearly 100 Nippon Sharyo Bi-Level Commuter cars, similar to those used by the Chicago Metra and Virginia Railway Express, which they operate in 5-car trains being pulled by equipment such as their Alstom-overhauled EMD F40PH locomotives.

This Custom run of Caltrain Bi-Level Commuter cars will be repainted and re-detailed with some minor physical modifications (such as new signboards to represent the accurate location of the Caltrain logo on the cars) to make the cars more accurate to the appearance of these cars in Caltrain service. They will be packaged in a 5-car bookcase box, with a total of three standard Bi-Level coaches and two Cab-Coaches (a common consist layout for a Caltrain commuter train), with space in the bookcase for one or two Caltrain F40PH locomotives. Please note, as these cars are repaints of Metra cars, some details may not be 100% accurate to the Caltrain cars. See the detail images below for a closer look at what these cars will look like.
