  1. Scenes in the summer of 1985, the twilight of JNR on the Tohoku Main Line, somewhere near Kurihashi Station. Partially airconditioned 115 series units, unremarkable (back then!) 185 series- glory in the roar of their mt54 traction motors, 583 series on long distance services to Aomori, blue trains...later a selection of freight, including a mixed freight, capped by an ef58 pulling a rake of old coaches on a special train. Check out other vids by this user for similar mid-eighties content.
  2. Short video taken in 1986 on the Kure Line in Hiroshima Pref. A lot (most?) of this line is single track, but back in the day it had quite a bit of traffic, including freight and parcels trains. Good scenes of late JNR era railroading. The de10 hauled freight train is eminently modellable.
  3. A week ago Bill posted another video by jitensya37 about Musashino Yard (link below), this one covers now and then aerial images of 31 yards from Goryokaku in Hokkaido to Kumamoto in Kyushu. Hmmm the forum software makes an image out of that list... anywho... It's very interesting how some have been preserved as 'freight terminals' losing only some of their tracks to paved areas for the container and lifts, while others are completely gone.
  4. Hi all, Am lucky enough to be travelling to Tokyo later this month in pursuit of my two hobbies, airplanes and trains. I'm staying a few days near each of Narita and Haneda airports and wondered if anyone had any suggestions of good places within a reasonable distance (preferably by train), to shoot some video of freight trains. Many thanks. Ian
  5. Hello, I have in my collection a wagon type Taki 3000 (black) Kato with white Nisseki Oil logo. ( http://www.katomodels.com/product/nmi/taki3000_e.shtml ) Unfortunately, I can find no information on the web in which period these cars were with this logo on duty !? As far as I know, the wagons were in service throughout Japan, including Hokkaido ?. Can somebody tell me something about that?

  7. Cab view of a container train going across Tokyo to Sumidagawa freight terminal: If someone could identify the exact route, that would be great!
  8. Hachette Japan has released the first issue of a series of magazines that will enable purchasers to build a 725mm X 1278mm freight-themed layout. The length of freight cars and freight trains lends themselves well to having a reasonably proportioned compact tailchaser layout. http://www.kamotsu.jp/home.html
