Kato will make an N-scale model of gSeven Stars in Kyushuh of JR Kyushu making the most use of Katofs state of art technology.

This is the first ever full-scale cruise train started in operation on Oct. 15, 2013 in Japan. It is operated cruising around to various sightseeing spots in Kyushu Island with the concept of gTravel to find a new life.
The train consists of 7 coaches of series 77-7000 and the dedicated locomotive DF200-7000. The shiny body creates a chic beauty.

The scale model fully represents the elegant air of the luxurious cruise train. Not to mention the distinctive exterior form of the train, the carefully made interiors are so reproduced that they can be observed through the windows on the suite cars and on the end car. Interiors are elaborately reproduced such as inside colors varying from a coach to another, patterns on stained-glasses and a piano in the lounge.
