Nozomi Express Sets
Now there are 2 Nozomi sets ... the original 500 Series and the all new 700 Series cars -- see below. Both look like jet planes on the track ... are "sleek and sexy" and in real life operate at speeds in excess of 300 km per hour. They are typically run in 16 unit consists.
In N-scale, they look great in any length. End units (shown below) are illuminated. Car interiors can also be illuminated with Kato's #11209 or #11210 LED lighting kits. (See Index Page/Kato). Important: these cars require a minimum radius of 12-3/8" to operate properly. They look absolutely great! An "oh wow" train if ever there was one!

The N700 Series Shinkansen is a high-speed train with tilting capability developed jointly by JR Central and JR West for use on the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen lines. The prototype 16-car train was delivered in spring 2005 for extensive testing, and trains entered into service on July 1, 2007, with eight daily Nozomi service runs. While overall similar to its predecessor, the Series 700 Shinkansen, the front of the N700 has been redesigned using airplane technology to produce a more dynamic and highly aerodynamic nose. Full-production N700 trains have a maximum speed of 300 km/h (186.4 mph) and tilting of up to one degree will allow the trains to maintain 270 km/h even on 2,500 m radius curves that currently have a maximum speed of 255 km/h. This will allow the Nozomi trains to shave five minutes off the travel time between Tokyo and Osaka, dropping it down to a mere two hours and 25 minutes. By 2011, all regular Nozomi services will be operated by the N700.
