Kato Pocket Line N Scale: Steeple Cab Electric Locomotive
The Kato "Pocket line" is a line of affordable, small engines and mini-trains that are designed to fit on even the smallest layouts, like those using our Compact Track or UNITRAM tracks.
The latest generation of Pocket Line engines all use Kato's coreless motor drive with enhanced electrical pickup to ensure that they can run smoothly, even at incredibly low voltages and speeds - great for fans of "creeping" engines!
Coming in late 2021, Kato USA will be releasing a special "US style" paint release version of the Pocket line steep cab electric, designed to resemble those used in the 1920's and in some cases still today in daily freight service at the Iowa Traction Railway! These orange painted engines will include a movable pantograph, North American standard Kato knuckle couplers, and a bright orange paint scheme.
Fully motorized with coreless motor construction (DC Compatible only)
Fitted with Kato Knuckle Couplers
Sharply detailed and adjustable metal pantograph
