And we still dont have a model of the Ex-Odakyu 20000 RSE in this Fujikyuko 8000 series in Fujisan Express livery or the 8500 series in Fujisan View Express livery.... 

 

I'm divided. I want the working lights MA model will have on the Fujikyu 6000 series yet i already have the Tomytec one.....  X_X

Nice! I actually took a few pictures from almost the exact same spot you have here two and a bit years ago when I was in Japan. I remember I was staying overnight in Kawaguchiko the day after a pretty big Typhoon had hit Tokyo. Though I think we actually arrived at Kawaguchiko station close to the time we originally planned!

I was passing through Shin-Kawasaki station today, as one does, taking a passing look at all the parked choo-choo trains (all the EF200s you can eat, a smattering of EH200s and 500s and a couple of EF65s and DE10/11s), when I noticed something angular hiding in the shrubbery:

Yup, the one and only:

Fortunately parked close to the road bridge bisecting the depot area, unfortunately had to poke the camera up against a chain-link fence, hence some grey blurriness around the edges.

Trying to find on Google Maps in satellite view where it's shot from ... didn't found.

I would gather on the road bridge right before the bus stop at the station, north side. You can see the station platform in the background of the last picture.

Yes, exactly. Only location that matches what you see in the pictures. The first one must be taken from the platform.
