Series 221 renewed is now still in service as gYamatoji Rapidh etc. on Kansai mainline and Osaka Loop Line. Kato will make the scale model by using completely new molds.
Series 221 was a DC suburban train which appeared in 1989 to be used as gShinkaisokuh rapid. To the rolling stock, JR West Japan provided the designing and manufacturing of the kind which was first ever done in west Japan. Currently it is in service not only as a rapid train on Tokaido/Sanyo mainlines but also in even wider areas including Kansai mainline (Yamatoji line), Osaka Loop line, Nara line, San-in mainline (Sagano line), Kusatsu line, Kosei line, etc.
Since 2013, such renewals have been provided to the train as the installation of shields to the train top to protect passengers from falling as well as the change of headlights into HID and fog lights.
