  1. Hey I have been asking around about the HO guage version of the JR500 series. I have fallen madly in love with my Nscale Kato model of it. This train is truly divine beuty of the rails. But I collect high speed trains from all over the world in HO I have an Acela, orange TGV, a TGV duplex, ICE, ect. But I have yet to get any high speed trains from the fare east. Since I found no adaquate models in China, I turned to Japan and plan on aquireing the Tenshodo JR500 and the E5 Hayabusa from Kato. I hope to find the 6 car basic set from tenshodo cheap but it seems highly unlikely and no one has offered any on this site in a long time. I have a few important questions about the tenshodo model I mentioned. Does its nose cone detatch off and is their a coupler in it? Like the Kato E5 has. Also the circuit panel supposedly has an 8pin plug in it. If you own this train please take some photos of the cab cars taken apart so can see if they to have the 8 pin plugs. Thank you I really appreciate it. I am slowly going insane over this train I can't afford.
  2. hi, I had someone on facebook to send me some photos of the motor car of the JR500 HO scale version from Tenshodo. I do not own this train but will hopefully get one with in this year. AS you can see on one side of the circuit panel their appears to be an 8 pin plug and I want to know what Digitrax decoders you recommend for it I stay with digitrax because its cheaper than TCS and other companies. Also is it 8pins or an 8pin socket? The car appears to be held together with 4 screws and the circuit panel has 2 screws holding it to the chassis and the motor also has screws holding it to the chassis too. the motor has the Bachmann symbol etched on it meaning that Bachmann did help design the model. But I do not know for sure if that's true or not I could be wrong on any of that and tell me if I am. I wish Kato designed its HO Hayabusa like Tenshodo designed their Nozomi. I am hoping to find this train for under 650 dollars.
