High-speed trains or high-speed rail is a type of rail transport that operates significantly faster than traditional rail traffic, using an integrated system of specialized rolling stock and dedicated tracks. One of the most famous high-speed trains is the “Tōkaidō Shinkansen” bullet train in Japan. In this video, we are going to discover a Japanese model railway layout in N scale presenting high-speed model trains made by KATO. Furthermore, there are authentic buildings, vehicles and landscapes from Japan.

The next step in my “From Loop to Layout” series evolves beyond the basic loop and passing sidings into adding a little bit of interest, by adding some “universal industries” and a basic way to operate them. This video shows how adding a few spur tracks can add some interest, and even shows a way how basic operations can be done on a small layout.
While this is N-Scale, the principles here are transferrable to any scale.

I set up tracks throughout my house in order to run one of my G-scale model trains, the Santa Fe Super Chief passenger train. But I ran in to a little issue when I mounted my GoPro on the side of the train! I guess I should have checked the clearance on the left side of the tracks. Not to worry, though… neither the train or the camera were damaged in the little incident you’ll see at the very end of the video!
This model, by LGB, is my favorite train in my large collection. It cost thousands of dollars for the locomotives and the passenger cars, but I still get a thrill running it on my layout even though I’ve had this train for about five years now. The paint scheme, known as the Warbonnet color scheme, is a classic.
In the video you see a LGB model number 21576 Santa Fe locomotive pulling a LGB 21586 “B” unit… followed by several passenger cars including the LGB 36570 Streamliner car and the LGB 36571 passenger car.
This particular model train was only manufactured for a year or two by LGB and has been out of production for quite a long time now. These are a collectors item now. So, don’t get your heart set on owning this particular type of model train, at least not in G scale. You could probably much more easily find it available in O scale or HO scale… but these G scale versions are a rare item now.
