Very cool livery, although I can't help but think it would have looked even better on the 50000 series/ RAPI:T :)

I have yet to find a Nankai train I'd like. It will probably never happen.

 

Also that "Kiss my Nagasaki" campaign JR Kyushu has been running since last year went unmentioned so far. Somebody must've thought this was a good idea.

I put up a thread about the Miss My Nagasaki crap last year sometime.  It is Kyushu, so nil response from this community.  Two weeks ago I was in Kyushu.  Those themed trains look horrible.  Lots of rainbow colours and some boy band images on the side of the trains.  Yuk!

I don't think this belongs in the "ugly' thread.

They are indeed as horrible as calling a boy band Kis-my-FT2 and their singing ( I use the term loosely). Mrs Kamome had a short moment of madness and bought one of their albums.

I assume Kis-my-FT1 were even worse and whoever gave the green light on the marketing campaign needs a stern talking to. I saw a 800 series Tsubame with their vapid faces on my way to the JR Kyushu depot open day. Thankfully the Eva 500 was there to restore some faith in painted trains.

Please don't torture us like that and leave the boy band 800 as the last image.  Did you take a shot of the Eva 500?

Sorry Eric

 

I have pictures but sadly too much maintenance facility equipment in the way for a decent picture, annoyingly.

 

The Kyushu Railway shop had their monthly N gauge running day on Sunday. It's a great way to give some exercise to the fleet while we are in moving limbo for another few weeks.

One chap there had a couple of Kato 885 Sonics and a 883. He has spent considerable time photographing each car, creating a scale sized image for the model and then printing on decal paper. They are horrible liveries, but you have to admit, these are very well executed examples. I should have asked him whether he would want to share the file for those so inclined. Hopefully he'll be there again next month.

Yes a design I would consider not done well and I’m no boy or girl band fan, the chap did a great job with this model! That is a lot of work and done well!

 

cheers

I doubt he'd do that.

Most people who invest all that time in creating those sell them for big money on Yahoo.

Sad way to ruin a rare 883.

Yeah, not really my taste either but certainly well executed. The gentleman in question only had Kyushu rolling stock so I would bet he’d have another. At least he can get a new one in March if this is his only one. Or maybe he’s a massive Kis-my-FT2 fan!

Last year there was a Yamanote line special livery for the Sumikko Gurashi line of toys from San-X.  Kato makes a 231-500 set with this livery 10-1399.   Very reasonably priced on amazon.co.jo when I ordered it last week (arrived this week).  My daughter is  Sumikko Gurashi crazy and so I got it for her for her birthday so she can feel connected to the new "family" hobby.

 

Google gave this link when searching for pics, which shows lots of pics of the real and toy versions.
