A third car was inserted between all sets starting from 1989. However, with the decline of tourism related services, the 8800 series were relegated to trans-city expresses. As the 8800 series only had a top speed of 110 km/h, compared to the top speed of 120 km/h on "Panorama Super" trains, the 8800 series were slowly taken out of service, with all being withdrawn by late January 2005, and scrapped by March the same year. The 8800 series was the recipient of the 28th Blue Ribbon Award held in 1985. The train is in good condition, with some attempt at weathering by a previous owner and tested and the box is rather shelf worn.It is tested and run well (see pictures).
