    What is this model?

    Hi everyone. can anyone give me details on these models please. It looks to be a Tomytec railway collection set with a modified open air coach and the seller says the coaches have no details underneath. thanks https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/marketplace/toys-models/models/railway/locomotives/listing/2847787635?tm=email&et=41&mt=9022EEB4-2FA3-409C-B29C-352B7CC692CF&bof=Wa0f9eZO

    The greenmax 14 collection

    Hello. I have acquired a fairly substantial lot of greenmax kits on ebay so I am creating a post dedicated to the kits from this lot. This is where I will blog/journal and talk about each kit in different stages of the build. There are 14 kits, 6 with power units and 8 economy kits. I am no stranger to greenmax kits and lately they have really been my thing. All of these kits are older releases and some are packaged far differently than what I am used to in the newer kits. I wish they still packaged the decal sheets for starters, the old economy kits have them. I occasi
  3. Bought a Hanshin Commuter Train Economy Kit today at Crosspoint Shimokitazawa (GM Store). There are a few more of these rare kits around, so hurry if you can! Maybe I'll get another one :P I'm going to use this kit as a base for two projects, but I need rare Keikyū 1000 type Economy Kit for that. Eventually I'll find one, but it's going to be a difficult job... • Project 1 will be concerned with the Keisei 3200 or 3300 with a new front. The new front comes from the Keikyū kit and will be attached to the body of the Hanshin kit. The train will eventually look like this: Keisei 3
  4. For the 25th anniversary of the Sega video game series Sonic the Hedgehog, Keikyu will give a 2100 series train a wrapping advertising. This will basically be the BLUE SKY TRAIN with some additional stickers. In addition, Otorii station on the Keikyu Airport Line, next to the Sega headquarters, will receive a commemorative sticker on its station signs. Both the Keikyu Sega Train and the sticker at Otorii can be seen from 14 November to 17 December this year. Source: http://www.keikyu.co.jp/company/news/2016/20161107HP_16155YM.html
  5. Observed on Keikyu rolling stock- speedometer dials (among others) with black faces, rather than the traditional white. 800 series: 2000 series:
  6. Interesting poster spotted at Keikyu Tsurumi, which shows figures for crowding on weekday morning up trains departing Keikyu Kawasaki Station(6:48 to 8:55 timespan). According to the poster, the most congested train is the 7:59 limited express for Aoto. This poster is intended to encourage commuters to commute in off-peak hours, or at least to choose the less crowded trains.
  7. Place I discovered this weekend. Located directly above the Keikyu Daishi Line terminus, it also offers views of the Keikyu main line, particularly the down local platform, and in the distance, the pocket track used by local trains terminating at Keikyu Kawasaki. location: Tullys, Keikyu Wing Bldg, 4F
  8. TRA has a EMU 700 trainset in Keikyu colors, running from May 12, celebrating the sister railway ties it has with Keikyu. Keikyu has one of its 2100 series in TRA colors, running since February. The Keikyu-inspired color scheme is based on the 800 series "daruma" trains used for local services.
  9. Once again, some Keikyu action, this time at crew change and depot point Kanagawa Shinmachi Station. Down trains during the later morning rush, in this case a twelve car ltd. express, with the last four cars unoccupied, arrives, uncouples, and departs. The rear four car consist then pulls up, and boards passengers, and proceeds as a local for Uraga. Total time from full stop to departure, including uncoupling: less than 1 minute. Apparently this operation occurs at this station around 10 times daily, in the down direction. In this case, the rear portion goes out of service, and revers
  10. Interesting video describing the procedure for departing trains at this station. First, the departure warning bell(for down trains) or the single tone "buzzer" (for up trains) is sounded. Once all passengers have boarded, the platform supervisor activates the ト indicator visible above the platform. The guard then closes the doors, and once the red indicator lights on the train car bodies extinguish, the platform supervisor activates the O indicator located in the same housing as the ト indication. The guard then signals all clear with the cab buzzer, and the train departs. The first train show
  11. This is only of use to people around the Tokyo area after Christmas day, but there will be a sale of a limited run of 6000 2-car sets of the Keikyu 700 series. This represents the original configuration without air conditioning (think rush hour in a Tokyo August ) The 700 series (second generation) was in service from 1967 until 2005(!). Based on the wikipedia article linked below, I don't think these got aircons until a full refurb program was carried out between 1980 and 1988. Twenty-two cars were sold to Kotoden to become their 1200 series. These are operated in 2-car formations.
  12. I found this video of a direct limited express from Haneda to Narita through the Toei Asakusa line. It's from 2014 august, so realtively new. I wonder when did this service start. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXpCYgE3myE
  13. A Kanagawa Shinbun clip from 2010: The first driver profiled, Mr. Shigematsu has some interesting comments: - due to the 1000 series being an all M (motor car) consist, it had high acceleration, being able to outrun rival JR types on a parallel line even after leaving the same start point later -on all service types- local, express, and kaitoku, the 1000 series could be relied on to get the job done. It was a very stable-handling design, inspiring confidence. -the cab design allowed all controls and switches to be within easy reach. When Mr, Shigematsu began his career as a driver
