What's the wrapping of the KiHa32 supposed to depict? A dragon? I tried to look for other pictures but it's not exactly clearer.

 

Looks like a burning armadillo, but according to this site it represents a kappa.

Dammit, only a couple of months after I went to the trouble of sourcing a rake of those Chichibu WoKis, they come out with an improved version with shorter couplings...

The new ones have different running numbers, tho 😉

Looks more like a figurative Rorschach test, if you ask me.

I think it's a dragon?

 

Strange i seem to be having issues with pasting youtube links as embedded videos... ~

Are you sure you posted the correct video? This is a cab ride video from the Abukuma Express. The KiHa is from Shikoku.

It's a kappa. Just very stylized.

Someone stop me from buying this silly unit.

I either saw a picture recently of this guy in actual scale, or it was a dream after eating Mexican food too late at night.

I have it. It’s pretty cute; they even modeled the model train display

Sticking to the theme of 0 series shinkansen, does anyone have experience with the A9660 Shinkansen Series 0-0/0-1000 Royal Train released last summer? Does it run smoothly?

Amazon.co.jp has it for ¥17,388, which seems reasonable for an unusual formation like this.

@1954G it’s a great model, except that it’s hard to take apart if you want to equip it with TN couplers and interior lights.

 

be sure to get 0339 TN couplers combine with 0336 TN couplers which are longer unless you have 400+ radii.

And i am glad it is again safe for me!

 

I'm kind of glad considering the spending spree that I have been on, there is a lot of stuff I have purchased of late that I haven't posted, a bit of it has been rolling stock but there has been a lot of buildings and detail parts that I have been collecting.
