Rokuhan - New Releases

Recommended Posts

Two new announcements by Rokuhan (this time via Twitter):


- the KiHa40 as a z-shorty in two liveries, and

- "1 formation train serving 5-car set" (?!?), which to 99% is the Imperial Train!

For some reason, the English Rokuhan hasn't been updated, so some new shorty products have snuck under my radar:


Z SHORTY KIHA58 J.N.R. Ordinary Express Color 



Z SHORTY KIHA58 J.N.R. Kyushu Color



2 New Trunkcase layouts (If you have a spare $1000 usd around)




Power Selector switch, seems to allow auto-block control, and the description hints are some more products (an de-coupler module for example)



Automated Reversing switch, automatically reverses a train's direction when it passes over a sensor.



It seems like the new switches could create some very interesting layouts for the people smart enough to use them.

I've noticed this, so now I always view the rokuhan site in Japanese and use google translate. I'd like to see a video of the switches in operation, they could prove to be pretty interesting!

Looks like Rokuhan will for the future only bring Shorty Stuff.

They announced new liveries of the series 485 as well, so they are still going with normal stuff

And the EF 65 in two new liveries, too:




With the 485 series, Imperial Train, and the ShiKi 800 Rokuhan has invested quite heavily in new toolings in the recent time, so I think they are totally entitled for a little breather, whereas new Shorties are comparatively cheap even if they have new bodies.
