    I think what you said "fish roe pockets" would be "Ikura"(salmon's roe) and people who don't have a habit to eat feel strange. Kanazawa has a good fishing port of Japan sea so sea food is so great.

    Indeed. One could make special “eki-ben trips” to collect the most famous ones. I remember getting these fish roe pockets, I think from around Kanazawa. A bit strange for my taste, but the packaging was wonderful. Kanazawa probably had the best sashimi-don I ever had, with lots of various sea food, like mussels or urchins.

    @Kamome I remember a kind of food which was served in dining car was mainly western food and Japanese style set meal. Western food was like a beef stew, Salisbury steak( called as "Hamburg steak") or Spaghetti Bolognese(called as "Spaghetti Meat Sauce") etc... Japanese style set meal included Steamed rice, Miso soup, Japanese style Pickles, Grilled Fish or Meat(in that case, mainly "Teriyaki") with some raw vegetable. Some dinning car in shinkansen was operated by high class hotel's restaurant like Imperial Hotel(Tokyo), Miyako Hotel(Kyoto) or Rihgaloyal Hotel(Osaka

    Out of interest, what sort of food was served on these types of services? Was their any particular dish that most people wanted or were there regional delicacies? I remember seeing footage of people running at certain stations to get regional “eki-ben” to eat on blue trains as some had no catering service. Something similar on the Usui pass with people buying Toge no Kamameshi.

    Yes, that's right! Especially, the dining car of shinkansen "Grand Hikari" remains in my memory. I hope a dining car come back to a regular service.

    If you’re into (or not) garden gnomes

    So we have a park next to us with big playing field and playground. There is a 50’ streatch of wild park space between us and the main park path along the edge of the playing field that everyone uses to access the park and walk dogs between the blocks. We had a new solid fence installed around the backyard for the dog as the old split rail let him get set off barking at every jogger that went thru the park as well as any dog peeing on his park strip and the deer that use the park natural strip as a highway! We felt bad as the old split rail fence was nice and rustic and really disappeared well

    It’s going to make me set up the new router table! I’ve put off assembling it since I got it figuring I’d wait for a project to come along and I even gave away my baby router table to force the issue! I looked at trying to do the shaping on the table saw, but it’s just too thin and dicy to do it there. now thinking of making some of my old girder supports as well to rest like 4 modules on and have 2 sushi legs to support thin girders. This way 4 modules get leveled at once. Thinking the whole thing may look like a nice floating viaduct. glad you got me thinking outside th

    Kato - New Releases

    I'd love a taki 3000 or similar in HO, but it seems like the only HO releases in the past few years are just reissues of old molding.

    @#$& you Joe, you got me going engineering the front sloped edge for some new Ttrak modules! Creating the edge moulding at an oblique angle is tough, looking at deep dovetail router bits. jeff
  17. Really nice layout! Lots packed in there but did a great job of hiding tracks so it wasn’t a total spaghetti bowl. Really love how he did the lift out section, I was looking at some of the unconstructed areas in the early section wondering if there was a plan for access. love his planning of roadways, another thing that helps hide spaghetti bowl. Super long train shed is awesome, I’ve always wanted one like that out of the Tomix. I have 6 of the Kato sheds we use to use in the yard on the old JRM layout but doesn’t compare to his at all! The engine shop is really nice and great sce
  18. Excellent! Now that’s something to model! jeff
  19. Wow, thanks so much! And with a photo, yet! But the process, though well described, doesn’t sound simple, and re-assembling J-trains tends to be harder than taking them apart. I have been reading around about traction tires and sometimes engines run perfectly with just leaving them off. It depends on the width of tire-groove and track, I guess, which I can’t judge here. And absolute peak performance is not important for me, I can perfectly well run the engine around light. Hmm, what’s the worse choice ….
  20. This is a good thought. Soo easy. Why didn't I have this idea before? I check all my TORA, YO and WAMU lettering sets to check if some number groups will match. And I just found a キハ52-0 by Tenshodo. Could not resist. This DMU type was missing in my collection. Single railcar operation. The item had been the WITHOUT sound decoder. Great. I don't want to spend 20 Tousand YEN for somthing that I don't like. Quantum just doubles the price. For what? Annoying noise? Not for me. This may take who likes it. I had to wait as only the sound units were available when I

    【Advertisement】 KATO #10463 JNR Series 115 EMU 4 coaches set (N 1/150) EMU built for the local line connecting Shizuoka and Yamanashi. The color of the body is painted after the local specialty red wine. You can enjoy the model with 3 cars. It will look great in a mountain layout. One is motorized. EC page eBay page

    @disturbman @cteno4 Actually, DD91, the prototype of DD54 was built to load Maybach's engine and DD54 was a motif of V160 in West Germany. Because It was built tough so that I heard often destroyed rails of JNR.

    Kato - New Releases

    Sorry i was talking about HO gauge ones. Kato are rerunning the 43000s again next month but haven’t produced any blue or green 1000s for a while.
  25. Strangely enough In have found myself veiwing his videos of late during my now further extended lockdown period, its got to the point where I am running out of Mokei Tetsu videos given the number I have viewed on Youtube of late to get ideas, I really like how he has done the tunnel where the bridge and station are how you lift the top of the hill off to access the lines below to clear derailments and conduct maintenance.

    Kato - New Releases

    At 21 Tomix and 24 Kato TaKi 1000's I think I have more that enough to really want any more, add to that the 9 Kato TaKi 43000's I have.
  27. Well the Japanese certainly have a knack for recycling things, as I was doing some study for my layout loosely based on Hozumi and Nishi Gifu I came across a house that has some pretty interesting storage space with a 20' container plonked in the yard and a WaMu 8000 up against the house. https://www.google.com/maps/@35.4013509,136.7128719,3a,90y,234.74h,83.09t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1slZ4qk-UEwkPLnWn62VVfxA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
