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,
Rainer

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)

I really do like the HKTILC.com leds in yellow bulb

The yard ... JR103, my lovely JR 313-3000, the Hinotory and in background, a two sets of JR E353, a 3-cars and a 9-cars.

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

 

IMG_20220507_155821.thumb.jpg.1e4687c462082efce3907d157b6143bd.jpg

 

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.

Great mix of rolling stock there.  I hope you're creeping along around those curves, scary. 😁

Now to the south - my Kyushu Limited Express.  Love the unique designs and not so colorful liveries.

Very nice Jr, I love the sleek lines of the 787 series, reminds me of the TGV.

My kids refer to the 787 as “kaba train” as they think it looks a bit like a Hippopotamus.

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.

Wow, looks like a really fun time!  All your trains really shine running on that layout.

Set up a short table top layout (about 1m x 2.5m) to run some of the projects and acquisitions that have not been run other than to test their motors and lights work. 

 

Constructed a short double track mainline for my boys to run trains without causing any collisions, branch line with local station and cement works with a some storage yards and a head shunt. 

 

Track plan

Running the Class 321 and Series 7000 to get some fun before another week of work.

 

Of course, one single track piece on the table and the cat girl is already there.

We had a micro model rail exhibition at my workplace.

 

Digital controller, Dash 9 and the cargo train with the Vectron were my boss's.
