  1. Although the situation is improving there is still little variety in available Z gauge freight stock. I've amassed a decent collection of Tenshodo, Rokuhan and PRM Loco wagons but some obvious ones are still not available. The distinctive Taki 5450 tank cars in their yellow colour scheme are one such. So the thought was to try and scratchbuild some. However I recently picked up a load of MTL Z including a starter set. In amongst the box was a very sad looking MTL tank wagon with an end missing and damaged couplers which looked like it could be a suitable donor vehicle.
  2. Continuing my personal reflections on the models currently available in Japanese Z I turn to the electric outline locos available. Now it was never my intention to buy any Electric locos and certainly I don't intend to put any catenary up (not after last time!) but Alison at Contikits had bought a collection of Japanese Z and was offering it at very reasonable prices. So I indulged in a Rokuhan EF 66 and a PRMloco EF 64 The EF66 in Early version livery is in the foreground with the 64 in JRF Blue and white behind. Compared to the rolling stock
  3. Hi to all of the forum Having some コキ104, 106 and 50000 here in different colors (modely by Endo and Tomix) I'm wondering about some different JR and JRF signs on them. I have コキ106 in gray and blue, コキ104 in lightblue and one コキ50000 in brown. Digging through lots of pictures in the net I am still not sure about colors and lettering. I understand that in 1987 JNR went into one fraight service company (JR Freight or JRF) and several passenger companies (e.g. JR East etc.) . The passenger companies received unique colors to differentiate. May I kindly ask fo
  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. Perusing through old photographs, I found the attached taken from the Tokaido Shinkansen during a trip in April 2013. Unfortunately I did not record where this freight terminal was but it must have been close to the Shinkansen track to be photographed from a moving train which itself presumably must have been slowing down or not going at full speed given by the minimal blurring. I suspect it is between Nagoya and Tokyo so does anyone recognise which JRF Freight Terminal this is or could hazard a guess?
  6. I have been cataloguing my collection of JRF freight locomotives photos taken over the past two decades and realised that I have never seen any Japanese websites that document what locos are currently in use and where by type and number. This would be extremely usefull especially regarding where locos have been renumbered. Has anyone come across a website that gives this info and can you direct me to it? Looking for something similar to http://www.abrail.co.uk/ which identifies UK locomotives numbers and location by type and class.
