Aru Nine will soon be releasing a few new brass kits, being the 'Classic D Tank', the 'Classic Bogie Tram', and the 'Battery Shunting Loco'. They also released the 'L Type Diesel' this Spring.

A large scale pre-order has been listed on Hobby Search for Amagi Modeling Idea unassembled kits.  Most of these appear to be older, branch line or minor private railway trains many of which were still common 20 years ago. These are 1/150 brass and white metal kits.

A couple of new station kits from Amagi have appeared on Hobby Search:

 

Shichihyaku Station in Aomori (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shichihyaku_Station )  A little bit of a 1970s architecture look to it.

Takahata Station in Yamagata (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Takahata_Station_(Yamagata_Kotsu)_(3153294370).jpg )  This is a nice older looking stone structure.

I think it's nice that they are producing kits of actual stations - most of them are abandoned or even demolished now, but they are frequently unique structures.

Have anyone built these kits?  I'd love to get some older coal cars, but I wonder if they fit kato couplers or come with the decals.  Not a bad price though!

The SEMU 1 kits are new. You need to add your own wheels. 
There is a number sheet as well. 
I ordered two sets and the decal sheet from HS. 
 

I have their SEKI kit in my to do pile, again you need wheels. 
 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Malcolm!  I think I'll pick some up then, they seem nice and it'll be fun to have some variation in my coal hoppers.

For the tight radius, small locomotive crowd here is the Kishu Railway (former Gobo Rinko Railway) DB158 Diesel Locomotive from TGW.

 

From the video description:  The rail used for the video is made by Joke Track: KOBBAN: radius is about 28mmR (oval). https://www.kamitetsu.com/

From the TGW video I discovered Korban 28mm track.       https://www.kamitetsu.com/

 

Video description:

 

It is a new product of the joke truck, "Tsurugi". The extremely small 28mm radius limits the number of vehicles that can run, but I think you can create a unique diorama. The reflected vehicle is Hiroki Tsugawa's "Deki 3". I think it's cute.

 

A new product of a rail truck for minimal 9mm scales "TSURUGI". It's the small 28mm radius extremely, so the vehicle to which you can run is limited. But I think unique and fun DIORAMA can be made. A reflected vehicle is "DEKI 3". It would be pretty.

Bill is quite right about the joke track, great for a small diorama. I bought an oval of the joke track from Jelly Models in Milan, Italy when I was purchased one of their H0e locos a few years ago. My idea was to make a A4 layout, smaller then anything I have made previously in N scale. Quite a challenge! Only certain rolling stock works but you still have some choice with what you can run. Here are a few photos. The first  image is a Jelly Models On18 loco available from Shapeways. It uses a Tomytec Hakotetsu power unit. The same track and A4 artboard base but different trees/figures. A Tomytec battery controller is used for the layout.

According to HS N Goya are releasing two kits. One of a period Hakodate 4 wheel tram with a Brill trolley and the other is of the reach cars for the Seikan train ferry. 
 

The latter were made of old wagon under frames of varying types. The photo shows the real ones being propelled by a DE10. Obviously a restricted use in real life. 
 

The tram looks interesting but will need a 4 wheel power truck if you wish it to be powered. Did other tram systems use this type?
