    Totoro module layout

    So, haven't done anything new here in a couple of years but I got rid of my personal website which had all of the pictures hosted on it. I hate seeing missing images so I've uploaded them to the forum again. Who knows, this module may see the light of day yet. Cheers eh, Todd

    What did you order or the post deliver? (N Gauge)

    This was one of JNR’s prototype diesel locomotives and I thought the colour scheme was for a special occasion. Asian Railway Conference? Mine is in storage but when last used had developed a scream from the mechanism.

    I'm no longer hosting my own website so all of the images I'd posted earlier had disappeared. I went back and have uploaded them to the JNS forum so you can see them again. I'll work my way through my other threads to see what I can fix as well. Cheers eh, Todd

    My second Japanese layout

    I‘m lacking space and time for it at the moment 😄 I‘d build it modular, too, so it can be run together with my club‘s layout and if I ever get the chance to have a designated hobby-room for such stuff I‘ll also get a similar layout as you got now. At least that‘s the plan for now 😉
  11. Here's a very well made video by jitensya37 about the history of the area around Shiojiri Station. Thanks to some clear maps and years written in the western system, this video is understandable and enjoyable. Shiojiri Station's history starts in 1902 under JGR, at this point specifically the Ministry of Railways. The video shows various line alterations over the years including the relocation of the station building in 1982 as well as a walk around the neighborhood. It became JR East territory in 1987 and is also the administrative border with JR Central's portion of the Chuo Line running southwest to Nagoya. jitensya37's other videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/jitensya37/videos Google map centered on Shiojiri Station: https://www.google.com/maps/@36.1134192,137.9493623,14.75z Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiojiri_Station Wikipedia map of lines: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ファイル:岡谷・辰野・塩尻付近_JR路線図.svg The excellent Senro Haisenzu blog also has several entries for Shiojiri.

    My second Japanese layout

    @roadstar_na6, Why not start today?😀 Piers are card with inkjet printed textures, shinkansen bridge is 100% card, tramway bridge has card longitudinal members. Old mainline bridges use plastic kits. So basically two out of three bridges can be built at no cost. The basis of all the landscaping is expanded polystyrene, which is also easy to find. 😄
  13. Maybe line your weights with kapton tape? jeff

    My second Japanese layout

    That looks great, I really love those bridges, I‘d also like to have something similar on the layout I‘d like to build one day 😄

    Did I ever mention I like MicroAce, especially when going cheap on auction sites? My journey through their back catalogue continues with this very fetching DF90-1: MicroAce DF90 (DF90-1) by Rail Squid, on Flickr Here's a picture of it in action on the Joban line in 1960: https://ganref.jp/m/yoimono/portfolios/photo_detail/1506007

    My second Japanese layout

    OLE has arrived and been erected. Foliage has started growing on the big bare mountainside. I also bought some thin plywood for the backscene. At the least it will hide the curtains...

    Position of traffic lights at crossroads

    Thank you very much Grant. That's useful. Based on these photos, this is where I'd put traffic lights. I am not very sure yet, especially for the two traffic lights that I have highlighted in red. I think that they would be useful, but they stand before the junction.

    Mascots loosing traction

    Mate, this is Japan...

    Mascots loosing traction

    When I saw the topic heading I was expecting images of mascots slipping over or sliding downhill. There's a thought. Mascot ski contest?
  20. For those who have done this DCC install, how did you insulate the decoder? I purchased a LokSound 5 DCC Micro for this project. In the instructions, it warns against wrapping the decoder in electric tape as this may cause overheating. I'm concerned about short circuiting the decoder since it will be enclosed by metal weights. How did you ensure the isolation of the decoder and the speaker? What about kapton tape? Thanks!

    What did you order or the post deliver? (N Gauge)

    The rule was usually at least one power car per trailer, so an eight with two pairs of MoHas (which you have) would be fine. I have a ten with three pairs based around an ancient Kato set, which can also run as a twelve by borrowing a SaRo 163 and SaHaShi 165. From the 153 Series on JNR used paired motor coaches, the MoHa 153 has traction motors too and gets its power from the pantograph on the MoHa 152. This allowed them to spread the weight across two vehicles and effectively produces a sixteen wheeled motor unit.

    If you find more than 13, bring them for me 😄

    Bandai B-Train Shorty

    I just came here to ask what Kato chassis I will need for my EF65 and DD51 so thankyou if that's correct 🙂 Maybe we need a sticky list, it's probably pretty straight forward for the experienced but not to some of us shorty newbies!

    What did you order or the post deliver? (N Gauge)

    I have 11 of them and I am looking to buy 11 to 13 more. I will be looking for these when I visit Japan next month. 🙃
  25. Cute photo. taken at a crossing on Nagoya’s Railway Co’s Inuyama Line. Train crossing gives Daibutsu title of most stylish Great Buddha in Japan https://japantoday.com/category/features/lifestyle/nearby-train-crossing-gives-aichi’s-daibutsu-the-title-of-most-stylish-great-buddha-in-japan Grant
  26. Super buzzy. I will take a look under the lighted magnifier later on and see if there’s anything obviously wrong.
