I'm surprised they didn't released it as a set with the 'Thank You From Kamaishi' wrapping.

Indeed. I have a fascination for auto trains. I just think it is kinda interesting. I need a DE10 Kyushu version to round it off.

I have the 4 car HB300 Shirikami and I have Microace versions of the Resort Asunaro and one other but would like to get the KATO versions of them (nicer looking and probably easier to DCC though the KATO is not that easy even though the light board is a "standard" KATO shape, its LED configuration etc is much more difficult to deal with).

 

Good score on that one!

Nice find!  I love the side rods.  I'm hoping I can find a cheap set of those one of these days.  Do you think it'd be possible to fit TN couplers to one?

Two weeks ago I got a larger shipment from AmiAmi where I bought almost all tracks and most turnouts that were available there and added it to my 36-700 Thank You From Kamaishi preorder. I also bought some light boards, it adds the nice final touch to the train. Also few new buildings like the new narrow platform and the older green-roofed station.

I also got my first Kato train, KiHa 111/112, thanks @disturbman for recommendation 👍 Two KiHa 110s and one more 111/112 are on the way. They will come hopefully tomorrow, together with my 36-700 Iwate×Geodude preorder. It's kinda funny, the Geodude train was my first to ever buy and in the beginning I planned to get just that one car and display it. But here we go, I still don't have it at home and yet I already have a looot of stuff 🙂

It appears to have bog-standard Arnold coupler pockets, this example has what looks like a Kato multi-coupler adapter (not sure what the technical term is) at one end.

I just found out the importance of re-railers on my layout so i went ahead and got more of them... The GM buildings look interesting, and a couple of buses on the bargains bin... Also picked that Keisei 3100 series from the Bargains bin since it will be right running next to the Keisei Skyliner!

Arrived overnight by road, the 16 Giant Dragon Ball Fighter Statues that will be placed around the city to form part of an exhibition!

They will be craned into position sometime over the weekend at night when traffic is light! 😂😂👍

My Kato Thalys arrived this morning and she’s an absolute stunner.

 

Kato are really hitting them out the park with their European releases.

 

Can’t wait for the UK GWR 800 series! 😀

AmiAmi arrived today to my home as well 🙂 I was so excited I forgot to take photos 😄 There are at least my new trains. The Iwate×Geodude 36-700 is the best, I really love it. Also finally got a motorised KiHa, I can see for the first time how Kato trains run. Can't wait until my layout is ready for them.

Yikes my Outland box showed up today, I think I went a little crazy trying out their 3D printed stuff! A few buildings I didn’t already have as well. But stuff was 20% off and the $6 shipping, such a deal. 
 

stuff looks nice. 3D looks pretty crisp, I’ll get out the godhands and trim away tonight and take some picts. They print a lot of their stuff at 45 degrees off horizontal so I guess it helps disguise stair stepping and supports horizontal flats by building them out slowly and not directly all together. I’m interested to see how some of the spindlier stuff holds up once cut free from the supports. The balusters on the railing on the subway entrance are some of the finest I’ve ever seen produced and looked good thru the package, I’ll look close at them tonight. Also didn’t realize they included cars with some of the garage accessories.

 

Took about 4 weeks to get here.

 

Cheers

How it it going? Is it the Kato model? I still have to install a DCC decoder in mine.

Both are Kato. Using a board replacement decoder by Digitrax. DN163K0b, the LED's legs need to be trimmed.
