  1. I was just looking at the graphic of the new Micro Ace products, including the two E10s, numbers 3 and 5. 5 was (apparently) assigned to Maibara at some point.

  4. Good documentary from 1963 (Showa 38). Mainly centers around activity at Maibara Station, then as now an important junction between the Tokaido and Hokuriku Lines, the latter dominated by steam locomotive hauled trains. Loads of railway scenes we no longer can see- shonan color 80 series, long bonnet Kodama trains, SL hauled passenger trains off the Hokuriku Main Line, parcels traffic...
