HB300's - missing the Series `Resort Asunaro`.  

Lovely HB-E300s! Dang i should have informed you Ami had one sitting in their bargains bin for somewhere above 6k yen for quite a few months....  X_x... While the Asunaro isnt exactly the best looking amongst its sisters, the strange colour palette surely adds an interesting twist to the HB-E300s ~

Kiha 100/110’s - love these little guys.  One of my favorite train rides back in 2017, nice and slow through rice paddies and small towns.

I love the Kiha-110s too! i should ride on of these guys, perferably the ones on Hachiko line beyond Kowagoei station ~

I think that's why I didn't get it when it came out and at that time was thinking of letting go of the HB300's.  Still on the fence whether to get it.

 

I rode the 110 on the Hachiko Line from Takasaki to Komagawa with 14 station stops with a total distance of 65 km and the rest of the line was on a Series 205 to Hachioji.  Total trip was 96.4 km.  It was a nice long and slow ride.  On the 110, there were a lot of opportunities to stand by the driver.

 A little Hokkaido action.  TN couplers are magic, no gap between the cabs.

Hi, what kind of TN ?
 

Thanks,

Body-mounted TNs, the boggie-mounted ones are the opposite of magic.

In that case, the cab extremities of Tomix 733 come equipped with Shibata type body-mounted TN couplers. Both the 733 and the Kiha 261 would use these between cars as well.

This Saturday, a mix of trains. 

 

Starting with my 6-cars Hinotori (JR 103 in background)

As I'm not authorize to drill the table ... lots of wires

and place enough to park my JR E353 3-cars set

Who said that size doesn't matter? a 20 cm longer table would be better. Thanks to the banked curves.

Nothing sleek about a Hippo. 😁  We finally went back to the Zoo after 2 years and my daughter loves going to see Bruce the Hippo only to find out it's gone, not dead thank goodness but instead it's being paired up with a potential mate in the Cincinnati Zoo.
