Hanzo is Leader and Mentor of Speed Fleet.


Hanzo is the fastest Chugger from Japan. Mentor to Koko, Hanzo is sleek, streamlined and has a photographic memory. He believes there is no greater honour than transporting passengers quickly, but always safely, to their destination. Respectful, dedicated and precise, Hanzo enourages fellow Speed Fleet chuggers to be the best they can through rigourous practice. As well as always extremely punctual.


Hanzo is most likely based on the Japanese Shinkansen 500 Series. operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West) on the Tokaido Shinkansen and Sanyo Shinkansen lines in Japan.[3] They were designed to be capable of 320 km/h (200 mph) but operated at 300 km/h (185 mph), until they were finally retired from the primary Nozomi service in 2010. The trainsets were then refurbished and downgraded to the all-stations Kodama service between Shin-Osaka and Hakata. Hanzo has Gold Wheels.
