Bullet Train Styling on A Classic Toy Train

Brio Classic Accessory Shinkansen Passenger Train

Brio, the Swedish toymaker, known for its wooden train models, has married its classic styling with that of the legendary Japanese Shinkansen (bullet train). Available for £12.99, the train set features two locomotives and a passenger styling featuring a design similar to that of the first Shinkansen from 1964. The Shinkansen will also soon celebrate its 50th anniversary with the release of a commemorative silver ¥1,000 coin.
