The Series 683 is the newest generation of the "Thunderbird" which succeeds Series 681. The "Thunderbird" is a very popular train that operates a route from Osaka, the second largest city of Japan, to the northern coast of the island nation. The express train has been named after a wild bird, which inhabits the snowy coastal province and changes its color into white in winter. The almost white light-gray and streamlined body and aerodynamic pilot cars make the "Thunderbird" an extremely attractive and recognizable train.
When we offered the Series 681 "Thunderbird" model sets several years ago, they did very well.
