  1. I think the brand new replacement motor for my DF200 might be bad already... I purchased it because the locomotive was jerking and stalling randomly on clean track that all my other locomotives were having no trouble at all on, and I had ruled out all other possible causes (dirty wheels/contacts, mechanical binding, etc…) Anyways, I ordered the motor from Hobbysearch, and after installation, the locomotive ran like new…for about 2 minutes, then it picked up the same problems where the old motor had left them off…and then proceeded to make them worse. So, thi
  2. Loose bolt causing a DF200 derailment. Another JR Hokkaido maintenance problem? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmGePJGG8rg
  3. Not entirely sure what the reason for this run on August 7 was, but it looks fun. Towed by the EH800 along the Kaikyo Line and Dōnan Isaribi Tetsudō Line (the former Esashi Line): Towed by the DF200 along the Muroran Main Line and Hakodate Main Line:
  4. already discussed here: http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/3823-jr-kyushu-to-operate-luxury-cruise-train-services http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/6148-jr-kyushu-cruise-train-seven-stars http://www.jnsforum.com/community/topic/6132-new-jr-kyushu-excursion-train here are the first images I've seen: http://rail-uploader.khz-net.com/index.php?id=1102969 The artist's renderings show it in a maroon color, so I guess this is just a primer coat. As Bikkuri mentioned, it has to be lighter than a freight-use JRF DF200, I'll be interested to see where the weight savings co
  5. Well, got some pics of the last run of this overnight train. Already an hour before the train was to depart, a scrum of fans and TV camera crews were at the end of platform 4 at Sapporo Station. Wanting to avoid the tyro carnival, I caught a local train and got off at one of my favorite photo spots in the Sapporo area, Kami Nopporo Station. I estimate about 25~30 railfans and a smattering of general public with cameras were there. Helpfully there were periodic annoucements for railway staff (gyoumu renraku) informing the location of the train- it departed Sapporo one minute late and also p
  6. Last month testing occured with a DF200 diesel on the winter-season (and perennially threatened) Sekihoku Line onion trains. As JR Freight's public reason for discontinuance of this train was the life-expiration of the dd51 motive power, successful replacement with the DF200 may prolong this interesting service. At Engaru (movement begins at about 0:45): And for all you kiha 40 fans, a warm season scene on the Sekihoku Line, at Jomon. 4 car train 4653D, an Engaru-Abashiri service, reminiscent of JNR era express trains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dihx7bMNNIg
