  1. Hello everyone! I‘ve recently bought a full Tomix Twilight Express 92240/41/42 set on YAJ and since all my other rolling stock is from Kato and equipped with their 11-702 knuckle couplers I got a question regarding the Twilight Express‘ end car. It appears that this car is equipped with a dummy coupler and thus cannot easily be equipped with different couplers. Does anyone know if this is correct and if there is a cheap/easy fix for this issue as my model train club has a head-station possible to be used in their layout and it‘d be pretty odd to have "Hand of God" turn the whole train around because of a dummy coupler on one end of it. I already sorted out converting the loco to Kato couplers but would also like to know if the gap between cars gets too small once they‘re equipped with knuckle couplers as it seems to me that they‘re already reasonably close to each other. Thank you in advance for reading and I hope somebody could help me. Kind Regards from Germany, Jan
  2. In preparation for the special Twilight Express San'in Course service to be operated from July 25th, a 4-car formation of 24 series passenger cars was tested in western Honshu. The route passed through Okayama, north to Yonago via the Hakubi Line, west to the end of the San'in Main Line at Shimonoseki, then back to Miyahara Depot in Osaka via the San'yo Main Line. Motive power was EF65 1133 and DD51 1191.

  3. Has anyone come across more details of the new weekly Twilight Express running as a luxury cruise train? Apparently launched yesterday according to: http://mainichi.jp/select/news/20150516k0000e040177000c.html Particularly the timetable, route and running days as would like to track it down whilst in Japan over next two weeks.
  4. It was announced Wednesday that the Osaka-Sapporo sleeper train Twilight Express service will end in spring 2015. The primary (public) reason given for discontinuance was aging rolling stock. With the axing of this service, all overnight sleeper trains beginning or ending at Osaka Station will disappear. http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/html/20140528/k10014779141000.html
