Commercialized Thalys PBKA, which is active as an international high-speed train in Europe.
While PBA released in October 2020 is exclusively for the Paris (P) -Brussels (B) -Amsterdam (A) section, PBKA is in addition to the above sections, Paris (P) -Brussels (B) -Cologne (K) ) Is also active.
Unlike PBA, the front locomotive of PBKA is characterized by a rounded shape. We will commercialize it with the current new paint version that appeared in 2016 on the 20th anniversary of the start of operation. The head part supports connection with a drawbar, and it is possible to reproduce the combination operation with PBA and the combination operation between PBKA.
After leaving Paris, PBA and PBKA will divide into the Netherlands and Germany in Brussels and aim for their respective destinations.
You can enjoy it side by side with KATO's European products such as the TGV that is active in France, the Eurostar that goes into Paris, and the ICE4 that meets in Germany.
