Kato has developed a motorized Driving Unit to power the gB Train Shortyh manufactured for toy maker, Bandai. The driving unit will now be made in two other versions, the #11-106 gCommuter Train 2h and the #11-107 gExpress Train 1.h These new mechanisms are different from each other and from the original version (#11-105 gCommuter Train 1h) only in shape of their truck side frames. They can be used not only for gB Train Shortyh but also for other conversion purposes and home modeling projects.
Individual trucks in each style will also be available, primarily intended for use with the B train trailer cars but useful for other modeling projects as well.
