I'm getting stumped on how to do something...
Rod.H posted a topic in Track SystemsI big mouthed in a jp youtuber comment that I could do the endless oval they did in a smaller area with the use of 2 Tomix CA-S and 4 C541-15s. Now while one of my CA-S sets is set up like a CC set (I added on the additional bridge beams), things were on hold till I picked up the Tomix packs 3245 and 3235, 8 p10 pillars and 4 long beams, with them a quick test resumed the hold as I'm now waiting on more items 140mm lengths of plain viaducts and packs of C541-15 - my version of a 10mm socket, they walk. I did a quick anyrail mockup and hit another obstacle my planned grades end up crossing over the lower track at a height where I suspect the suspended track will interfere with any rollingstock at ground level. I'm thinking I either need to change design from the squashed Tomix oval to a true oval, or there's a combination of straights that will make this idea work.

NuclearErick posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosWas a rare oportunity to visit those vehicles only 2 days 10/10 and 10/11, inside have a pictures to how was build and some new papers saying about the new tech for future shinkansen trains, i was alowed for only 1 minute in the drive seat :( The 300X JRCentral later 700 Series, STAR21 JREast E2, E3 and WIN350 JRWest 500 Series are all experimental vehicles that were used to test high-speed technology for future shinkansen. Not only are these trains on display, but visitors can actually go inside them. edit: i upload all the pics from my quick visit there so enjoy :D
