Has the 923 been retooled with the pantograph lights like the Kato model?  Or is it just a rerelease…

I think it is just a re-release, there is no updated info of Pantograph lights on Tomix website...

The HC85 looks good, another boring looking JR Central train but I love them nonetheless, haha.  Darn it, an 8 car Hinotori.  Time to go pre-order shopping. 😁

Me too, but it is a different formation.  Leaning towards getting it.

FTFY 😁

 

Actually, you can make your own formations since the numbers are selectable.

I'm still wondering why they did the 6-car version with 2 empty slots in the middle of the case, do the 8-car version, and no 2-car add-on for those who bought the 6-cars earlier ~ X_X

My guess is because the urethane is specifically designed for the Hinotori and they were not going to design and produce two different versions for it. They already knew they would be producing the 8-car version.

I would guess there was the intention to produce the added 2 cars once the 8 cars entered service but due to the sizeable gap in production and lack of 6 car versions in retailers, they decided just to run another model. Sounds like the middle cars have a simple cab to allow the train to be easily separated into 2x 4 car sections.  It is a nice model so very tempting to get another.

Pretty disappointed to see the Kushiro Anniversary JNR color Kiha 40-1700s only being produced in HO, hope they do them in N at some point. I feel this months release announcements have been underwhelming besides the Microace Sakura Liner.

They're expensive, but I do like the Kiha 40 pair in the JNR colors. I've wanted a Kiha 40 in that scheme ever since mistaking a 52 series for a 40 series years ago.  How bad are tomix kiha40s to convert to DCC?

 

I'm upset the taki is being sold as a kit only, and for more than the assembled version cost of the exact same model last time tomix released them.

I’ve been looking at making a ballast train with the regular Hoki 800s. I hope they see fit to add more details and black wheels rather than just different numbers.

 

The HO Kiha 40 is a nice addition but too modern for me. I’ve found the Tomix kits are ok but don’t run hugely well compared with RTR. The Taki 1900s foul quite a lot of their underside detail.

Description has black wheels and removable ballast. Although Tomix's black wheels are more of a metallic grey.

 

I hope the offer the removable ballast separately for those of us with older sets.

Thanks for the information @katoftw

 

It’s good news about the wheels as trying to source blackened ones from Tomix is both challenging to find enough  and expensive. 

 

After seeing your post, I had a look at the Tomix information myself. They mention this kind of ballast train being replaced by the GV-E197. I wonder if that and/or the E493 will be released at a later date.

Except that it does not work like this, for release in October, Tomix must have been working on this for a while.
