Ideal for beginning modelers who already have a track setup or who are looking to purchase one of Kato’s Master Series Track Sets. Each set includes a Kato locomotive along with an assortment of appropriate rolling stock to create a great beginning train that is both enjoyable and versatile – just add track and power! Everything included meets the same high standards as Kato’s individually packaged products, and are fully capable of being expanded or rolled into existing layouts.
