Yap thanks Ochanomizu san! That is correct! The more accurate one will be the A5933 Squid-Fox-Crab 3-car set ALL motorised.

 

Out of stock, but there's one on sale at Popondetta here:

the squid, fox, crab set is wonderful, one of my favorites in the painted train collection!

 

the used set would be worth it even if you repowered with tomytec or greenmax chassis units.

when we had the japanese tv crew talking to us about what they wanted to do with the club for interviewing the suggested they wanted also to go to one member's home to see their whole collection. after no one was stepping forward i said i would do it and they wanted to know the number of trains i had. i started counting boxes and stopped at 150 shelf boxes. scared myself -- big time. i realized i had not been storing them all in one place so really did not realize it had gotten that out of control over the last 15 years... but at least i only buy a few a year now... now joining JMTA (japanese model train anonymous). also now seriously have to do a good inventory and picts for insurance.

 

In the end they scrapped the idea of the home visit due to travel times. kind of glad now.

 

i once left a fairly small plastic box with about 25 trams in it at a house where we had a small train get together. it was not till then i realized that it was about $2000 worth of trams...

Thanks for your kind words, Sinus.  Actually it is a mix of new and used.  But yes, much of it is never run.  I am ultimately, for now anyway, more of a 'collector' than a 'train operator.'

Though not as impressive as some of the other collections, I'm nonetheless quite content with my modest collection.

 

Don't think I'll have to highlight the main focus of my (Japanese) collection ;)

I didn't include my non-Japanese collections (North American H0, North American Streetcars/Subway (H0), European H0 models, etc)

200 - your collection is excellent!  surely it takes top marks in terms of you caring about prototypical fidelity (as opposed to me, where I am generally happy with basic-sets-without-add-ons only, with only a few exceptions).

 

I wonder if kato will ever re-engineer the ends of its 0-series cars.  It's well past time for this.  Pretty good sets more or less unbuyable due to the old-school inter-car gaps.

arrrgggg! everytime i look at this thread i am reminded that i need to do inventory, been putting it off and off and off. on of those tasks that gets more daunting as time goes on. but very necessary, maybe I will be a good boy and go off and do it now!

and if you don't?  even though i kind of did it above, the only thing this really does is provide ammo for my wife should she ever find the list.  moreover, if i look at it, it just tells me that i dont need to buy any more.. and we certainly wouldnt want that, would we?

Yes information must be kept secret! SWMBO and what ever...

 

I do need to check with our current insurance about limits though, at times they get touchy if you have too much in one type of thing. then they want a complete record and then sometimes a rider. ugh.

 

plus i am tired of sometimes having to go thru things to make sure i dont already have something if a good deal pops up.

Keio6000,

 

I actually hadn't looked at it from that perspective, Thank you!

I've wondered the same, as it's really my only major gripe with the model (some minor gripes, like for example the lack of 0番台 cars, and the fact that it represents a few different prototype formations (Nh16, Nh5 and N99 from the top of my head) it is correct in terms of car types used though).

 

The problem though, for me, is that all the available 0系 models are flawed in one way or another, or at least the 16 car formations are, though the MicroAce model (both the 12 car pre-1969 version, and the post 1974 16 car version) is correct in terms of using the right sub-type cars (though unfortunately chose a formation that was reformed as early as 1978, as opposed to one of the 3 formations surviving into the late 80's , or even formation H82 which survived until late 1990, but I digress). Post 1976, formations slowly becoming mixed 0番台/1000番台 cars (and after 1981 2000番台 cars started to replace older 0番台 cars as well), which by 1980 had become the norm rather then the exception, the Kato set scores high points for at least including three 1000番台 cars in the mix, even though they should have included a few 0番台 cars as well.

The Tomix 12/16 car formation (Sk/Yk) was produced with 2000番台 cars only (for production reasons I guess), and is therefore unfortunately almost unbuyable to me, which is a shame as the Tomix version represents different formations, with a different composition then Kato.

 

anyway, back to the car end, I actually think the problem could be easily fixed by the aftermarket addition of the gate style gap covers as well as the inclusion of the diaphragm, as Kato ironically produced the most detailed car ends of all the 0系 models, as can be seen here:

anyway, that's just my (overly long) 0.02$ :)
