I have started to work on the layout for a while so I think I should start a new threat in the right place. My station is taking shape. I have decided to call it "Kojimacho Station". Kojimacho is an area not far from Hama Kawasaki. It's served only by freight railways, but a branch of the Tsurumi line could have well gone there. Kojimacho is the end of the line for passenger services and the origin of a few freight branches. It has an island platform and two tracks that are often used to turn around freight locos. I've had a great time making the station to appear run down :) A few photos below: I think I am going to go at least partially modular so I don't need to put the whole thing together each time.
I want a small new project for the new year. I have quite a few Japanese (and other) projects in progress from early last year but put them all down when some serious real life things happened. This is my attempt to get moving again without any baggage from before. I'm planning this to be a simple Unitram based double loop with points to allow it to be extended off each end. My idea is to make the center loop a detailed city center with street trackage with the extensions being double track private rights of way ending in stub terminals with crossovers. I'm home sick today, so I started playing around with the pieces from a V50 and V53 to get a feel for what will work, how big it will be and what parts I still need to find. This central loop will be mounted to portable benchwork. I'm not sure if I want structures in the center of the loop, I'm thinking a park might be nice, but I don't know if it would be plausible. I'll probably run my little fleet of Modemo Toden Arakawa cars on this. I'm hoping this will be a fun project that I can take to shows.
