About Kato Sets
With a real sense of accomplishment, you flick a switch and watch as your American prototype train hurtles across the inner city, speeding through tunnels on its way to the next station. This is just one of the fascinating model train scenarios you can create with a Kato N scale set. In the U.S., N scale represents 1:160, and it runs on N gauge tracks. Kato Precision Railroad Models, which released its first U.S. locomotive model in 1987, also manufactures model trains in HO scale (1:87); however, as Kato N scale train sets are almost half the size, they allow you to indulge in your hobby in a much smaller space, or put out longer tracks. If you are new to the hobby, a Kato N scale starter set has everything you need to start constructing your first track; and over time, you can enjoy watching your miniature world grow with buildings, landscapes, animals, and people, all of which are available in massive quantities on eBay. With a Kato N scale set, you can enjoy creating your big ideas on a miniature scale.
