miyakoji posted a topic in Off TopicTwo interesting finds that made me think of @JR 500系 🙂 First, one bus towing another. As the one and only comment on the video says, never saw that before. What was meant to be a simple Google Map inquiry became a minor cartological rabbit hole, I believe the camera man is just about standing on the border between the cities of Osakasayama and Tondabayashi. https://email@example.com,135.5602266,21z?hl=en Next, down on Aichi's Chita peninsula, there's apparently an organization called the Aomi Truck and Bus Preservation Society. They have a twitter account here https://twitter.com/aomitruckbusps with some pics of a sweet looking Toyota dump truck, and this beast, a Hino RE121. Actually there was another video of them driving it around which has mysteriously disappeared. Hmmm. I believe these are from the very early 80s but I'm not sure, maybe JR 500 can fill us in 🙂
miyakoji posted a topic in Off TopicJR500, you need this: https://twitter.com/R_esculenta/status/668710688739557377 According to the tweet, he built them himself. Excellent work. I think the event was the Surutto Kansai Bus Matsuri: http://www.surutto.com/bus/ https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%B9%E3%83%AB%E3%83%83%E3%81%A8KANSAI%E3%83%90%E3%82%B9%E3%81%BE%E3%81%A4%E3%82%8A Looks like it's held mid- to late-September every year, with 27 companies participating in 2015. Attendance isn't indicated, but it's been significant for previous years. How is it that a bus festival can draw 30,000 people? What makes Japan a society that's not just willing to use public transit, but is in some ways enthusiastic about it?
Possibly some ideas for layouts. All Kanto, but good nonetheless...
