──Towing the blue train of Tokaido and Sanyosuji to the end. Full renewal of EF66!

[Product introduction]
-The Tokaido/Sanyo Blue Train traction machine seen after the end of the JNR, the EF66 0 series late model, is now fully renewed.
- Equipped with LED interior lights, it has 15 passenger cars with traction power on 4% slope sections, and can be used in a variety of layouts.

- The actual train appeared in 1968 (Showa 43) with 50% more output than the EF65 in order to meet the demand for high-speed freight trains.
- It was mainly used for freight trains on the Tokaido and Sanyo main lines for many years, but in 1985 it was selected as a blue train traction machine for the same section.
- After the transfer from JNR to JR West, all machines were placed at the Shimonoseki Operation Center (currently Shimonoseki General Depot), and after that, they were modified to suit the passenger cars, and continued to play an active role as a blue train traction machine on the Tokaido and Sanyo Main Lines. .

- Equipped with a slotless motor for smoother and quieter running than conventional products.
- You can also secure traction and enjoy driving a long blue train.
- We recommend <10-1799/1800 sleeper limited express [Sakura/Hayabusa/Fuji] 24 series/14 series>, which is scheduled to be released at the same time, as the towing passenger car.
