Cool the tour with In a tour. You would be unique at tourist spots photoing a train car usually its some stuffed animal! Japanese would be into it though! Might be a great conversation piece to meet folks! Have a good trip!

 

cheers

Yes. I received the car yesterday, but unfortunately I won't have time to ship it to the next person before I go to Japan. Seems I might just take it with me for a mini-world tour?

 

Trade it at the IMON shop for an H0j kit 😉

Then squid can pick it up from bookoff a few weeks later and restore it!

Like I posted more than a month ago, I took the JNS world tour on a mini "world" tour to Japan, and visited some sights on the way. Note that I had a simple iPhone to make pictures so they aren't awesome all the time.

Can anyone guess in which train the JNS car is? (JNS discord members, don't spoil it!)

Car is on the bottom left, bit hard to see.

 

The car is still in my possession, as I may have some additional plans for it before I ship it to its next stop.

 

Cheers!

I've been super duper busy and basically rebuilding my entire layout and train room, so didn't get round to running the car on my layout. Too bad. O well.

 

I am sending it to the next person in line this week.

 

By the way, is it possible to get a high quality logo so I can print my own sticker? I have these wooden billboards in N scale that are just begging to be covered with a JNS forum logo...

Sure pm me an email address. I think I have the logo now made into a eps, I’ll check

Car arrived at my place a while ago. I haven't done anything with it quite yet, since I keep forgetting 😄

 

Of course, the only thing I can really do is take a picture of it on the hidden yard o.O

The tour might need to be the JNS Forum World Tour 2018-2019.  Since it seems to spend 4-6 weeks at each household before moving on.

Better add 2020 to the title.

Well, I did end up taking some pictures, so I should probably send it along.. Or rather, should've done so a while ago. I'll shoot a couple of additional pictures in the weekend (of a very lonely car sitting on a large storage yard, since the rest of the trains are back in their boxes), but I'm not sure who's next on the list 😄

I don't know if there's a database with my adddress, but take note that I moved recently, so will have to supply my new address in Zwijndrecht.

Not sure if there is a database with addresses. I was very busy when the whole thing got started, so I haven't really been involved much.

There is no database with addresses as far as I know, we just use the google maps and you can ask the next person in line for their address.

Well, I can mail it, or deliver it (I have one of those NS business cards that allows me to travel everywhere without additional cost ;))

Hi everyone,

firstly, I sincerely hope everyone is doing ok in these very dificult times😀😀👍who d have thought this could happen in this day and age?

 

In light of everything that’s going on I think it may be an idea to suspend the car tour temporarily until things get back on a more stable footing.

i ve spoken to Martijn this morning and he s more than happy to hold on to it for the time being.I think people have enough on their plates at the moment,plus, it’s now travelled half way around the world and it would be such a shame for it to get lost in transit somewhere.

I hope everyone is ok with this,if not,let me know and we ll discuss another option,

thanks everyone,

stay safe and well,

paul

Hoping to jump on the list once we have at least one module up and photo-ready, that will be awhile yet.
