New fan of the Hakone-Yumoto - Gora's line.

Hello everybody,

 

A few weeks ago, I happened to watch a video on YouTube of a crossing in one of the three zigzag stop points of the Hakone-Gora line.

 

I immediately fell in love with the line, the rolling stock, the atmosphere that emerges.

 

Now, I plan to reproduce an evocation of this line in H0.

 

I saw, for example, that Tomix had released in 2014 a 3000 train, hard now to find in Europe. I hope to find in the forum fans of this line and H0 rolling stock.

 

See you soon !

 

Casa-Alba.

Thank you very much for these internet links, I will end up finding one or more 3000 models to begin with!

Hi Casa-Alba, welcome aboard.

Can I ask you why HO and not N? Just curious as Japanese N is more widely available and cheaper than Japanese HO.

Thanks disturbman for your welcome on this forum 👍

 

The H0 scale makes it possible to build finer decors, and generally rolling stock work perfectly with more details.

 

I have a big garage on my house (approx. 8x5 meters), and I have built three years ago an H0 model railway set.

 

If my choice is an evocation of this fantastic line, I could just change the decor slightly, and change the storage by decorating it.

 

I fell in love with the EMU 3000-3100 and hope that Tomix will reproduce in H0 gauge the EMU 3100 in the near future.

Indeed, what's the current subject of your layout? And feel free to show us pictures 🙂

I have seen a few Hakone-Tozan line themed layout, I think they were posted here in the "Inspirational layouts" thread.

Nice, it looks lovely.

BB 67000? I have a memory of taking a train in Savoie pulled by one of those in the late 80s. If I remember it correctly, I was pretty young at the time. Always had a fondness for the blue diesels, too bad SNCF stock is so expensive in N.

Thanks 😉

 

This is BB 67400 a subset of the 67000 family, specialized for passengers trains. In Savoie in 80s there was BB 67300 other subset ...

 

For an eventual modification of my layout, I would change nothing of scenery and tracks, only rolling stock (BB 67400 substitued by 3000 for example). In other parts of layout (current right-of-way) I would create a new setting for zig-zag sections.
