Kato pocket line
« on: January 02, 2012, 01:01:28 PM »
Happy New Year fellow N Gauger's !

Spotted this on Fleabay  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Steam-Locomotive-Train-Set-Green-Pocket-Line-Series-Kato-10-500-1-N-Scale-/200683972864?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item2eb9b26900

Does anyone have any experience with these models :-

Do they run ok on British N gauge track ?

Whilst they look ok in the picture, in reality are they ok ?

Most importantly, do they run ok ?

Any comments would be appreciated,

Cheers,

Rob.

Fine on any N gauge track, they run really well. They do look a bit cheap, but some extra detailing and weathering should go a long way. Ideal for kids as there is little to break off !
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

Have 3 sets one of each, I use them on my Tomix(103mm radius curves) track. Easy to convert to DCC as well.
The little Loco in that set is unpowered and the motor is in one of the coaches. It is based on a real tourist line Tram in Japan.

Models are fairly basic
