Your top 5 at the moment, anyway. Japanese railways is a deep rabbit hole to fall down. You can see the heavy JRF influence in your pick and I’m sure you are having fun finding out about more and more of the huge range of Japanese rolling stock.

 

I have more “favourites” in JNR era but there are still a lot of modern trains I like.  I don’t know if i can name my top 5 without having to change it multiple times as I overlook other trains.

 

All the best

Those are all awesome locos. I'd never seen the HD300 before, but I really like it's livery. What would you haul with those locos? That's another rabbit hole for you!
