roadstar_na6 posted a topic in Rolling StockHello everyone! I‘ve recently bought a full Tomix Twilight Express 92240/41/42 set on YAJ and since all my other rolling stock is from Kato and equipped with their 11-702 knuckle couplers I got a question regarding the Twilight Express‘ end car. It appears that this car is equipped with a dummy coupler and thus cannot easily be equipped with different couplers. Does anyone know if this is correct and if there is a cheap/easy fix for this issue as my model train club has a head-station possible to be used in their layout and it‘d be pretty odd to have "Hand of God" turn the who
Hello All, Having a break from the kiha 40 build, I looked at dcc'ing a kato dd51. I had not removed the body from the dd51, just looked up on the net about dcc for the dd51 and from what I saw, the loco was not dcc ready, but some had used the circuit board for the ef65 to dcc the dd51. So, I ordered a circuit board. A bit later I got round to taking the body of the dd51 and found that it was already fitted with the same circuit board as an ef65, complete with 8 pin socket! With the ordered circuit board already in the post, I got round to thinking what else I could use it for.
Does anyone recognise the mystery train that DD51-1183 is pulling through Shin-Osaka station? Appears to be a "salon car" train of some type but not one that I have seen before. Also attached a picture of EF81-44 pulling another special through Shin-Osaka shortly before the above made up of the Naniwa set.. The platform was quite crowded with "Tori-tetsu" but all I could gather was that this was some sort of "memorial" train - again does anyone recognise it, perhaps from the headboard? Pictures were taken last month.
