Other Information
The name of this locomotive was originally released with the set name: Rising Sun Express II.
The Keisei AE series is a DC electric multiple unit train type operated by Keisei Electric Railway on Skyliner limited express services from Narita International Airport in Japan via the new Narita Sky Access Line. The first set was delivered in May 2009, and entered service in July 2010, replacing the Keisei AE100 series EMUs previously used on these services. This train is the first Keisei train to use bolsterless bogies, and the end cars are equipped with active suspension. The train design and styling was overseen by Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, and maybe because of this the AE series design won the "Good Design Award" in 2010, and was awarded the 2011 Blue Ribbon Award in May 2011, presented annually by the Japan Railfan Club.
