Kato Renfe AVE Series 100 N Scale (Escala N) Train Pack Review

This is the first of my model train review videos to be released in High Definition using my new JVC GZ-HD500SEK Video Camcorder and you should be able to see the details better on the train pack without blur or distortion. The train pack in the review is the Kato Renfe AVE Series 100 in the new “Operadora” livery which looks nice on this model in particular. The livery was intoduced around 2008 and I bought this model in 2009 as there is a few videos of this train actually running on my layout in some older non-HD videos. The motor car is all wheel drive with drive to both trucks on the power car and there also directional lights on both the power car as well as the non powered car. You can use this train pack on DCC as Kato make the “slot in” DCC decoders that are availible seperately. The detailing is superb on this model and the carriages have interiors as well as there is an option for a interior lighting LED kit availible seperately. The motor is quiet and the whole train runs very well. I would certainly recommend this train that any N gauge modeller that models high speed trains. The Renfe AVE Series 100 is a Spanish version of the French TGV Reseau although these trains are more streamlined than the TGV as the front on the TGV is more rigid. AVE means “Alta Velocidad Espanol” (or High Speed Train of Spain in English!). Overall Rating: 10/10
