This is a train model which is meant to be operated on standard model railroad sets.
The JNR Class C58 steam locomotives were in service from 1938 - 1947. While only two remain operational today, Unit 1 can be found on display at the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum in Kyoto.
This set comes with two cars, and has one speed. It can be easily switched on and off via switch on top. Requires one AA battery (not included).
