Oh good idea. I have a small, but strange fleet. Not really a particular field of interest, so in modellers terms, not a 'good' fleet. I really should focus on 1~2 car trains or trams. In my list I haven't included any broken trains.



JNR KIHA 183 (6-car; old Tomix model)

JNR 117 Series (4-car; Kato)

JR Central 373 Series (3-car; Tomix - sounds like it's eating crackers)

Hankyu 6300 (8-car; Kato)

12m Tomytec EMU (4-cars, 2 motorised)

Enoshima RR 1000 Series (3 sets; Modemo)

Enoshima RR 1100 Series (Meiji-Seika-Go, Modemo)



Kashima RR KIHA 431 (Tomytec)

Douwa Kougyou Katakami RR KIHA 302 (Tomytec)

Ensyuu RR KIHA 802 (2 cars; Tomytec)

Nambu Juukan RR Railbus (2 cars; Tomix)



ED17-2 (MicroAce)

ED17-19 (MicroAce)

DD54 (Tomix)

DD51 (MicroAce)



Small fleet of old-style passenger cars (4 cars; Kato & Tomix)

12 Series passenger cars, brass models (4 cars; Endou)

Open 2-axle cars (8 cars; Kato)

WAMU 80000 (4 cars; Tomix)

Caboose (2 cars; Kato)


Due to ever limiting space I'm going to start an extremely compact point-to-point layout that is easy to transport focusing on an industrial urban situation. So, I'll be on the lookout for some dual-cab short EMU and factory and industrial building kits in the meantime. :grin

Nice to know that we might see these designs in the USA in this decade per an article I read in the Japan Times. Google "American Shinkansen".


And they will run at 15mph behind an unscheduled freight train.

Absolutely! I think I told this story once before, a friend of mine who is a BIG collector of Lionel trains (one from the early 1900s) In his basement he has display racks around all 4 walls. One day his house was broken into and the robbers took some of his wife's jewelry, they didn't touch the trains because I have to assume they didn't  know how much the trains were worth (or they were looking for items for quick sale.) He got them insured after that.

I have been trying to catalogue my collection for some time now; this has given me a good opportunity to work out the current fleet of Japanese stuff in the book sets. This does not include most of the wagons, any of the locos, or DMU fleet:

Suffice it to say that I sometimes find stuff I forgot I had.


Yeah, that's been my problem tonight.  I thought I had everything in a spreadsheet, but it looks like I missed a few things.  Then there's my "stashes" of things I've picked up for future gifting.  I was joking with my wife that when Nik puts me in "the" home, he'll still be finding boxes with trains.....

Link to comment

As I am taking the family back home to Australia for Xmas. The wife has made me put a halt on the spending.. But I will be sneaking in the Kato 6p 800 Tsubame on Friday.. (Anyone one want my 3 piece Tomix set?)


Anyway. I will wait for the new year for the new N700-7000/8000 Kyushu Sakura, and I will be happy with that, and maybe one more Micro Ace local JR 817...


The big money I want to spend will be on the layout.. Oh, and the 4p add on set for my Tomix 500....
