I'm having trouble finding that item on the right in Hobbysearch categories, may i know where you can find it and how much does shipping cost? 

 

It's from here, but I'm afraid it's a little out of scale, would not recommend. 😄

Not exactly new, but I've had this Tomytec Ginza Line "2053 formation" sitting in its box for a whole while, and recently got round to sorting out the box of accumulated Tomytec parts and it turned out I had all the right bits to convert it into a running model.

I received my first order from RG Rokko today and I’m very impressed, ordered on Sunday night shipped Monday afternoon. I got it for ¥21,125 which included shipping, that is cheaper than Hobbysearch could have done it before tax and shipping was added.

Today I received a few small items of n gauge freight. 2x twin sets of Kato Taki 10600 Myojo cement tankers for my ED19 to pull. The ED19 is not the new released version although i don’t think it differs that much. This one is 3078, released a few years ago.

 

Also got my Shiki 1000 big cars for transporting heavy machinery. The 3 of these are still in use although they were bought by JR freight so no longer have the Nippon Express logos on them. The model was cheap and with some weathering and those horrendous silver wheels being replaced with some nice blackened Kato ones, its actually not a bad model for the price. I have also seen some more modern looking transformer loads on Shapeways. 

 

I have struggled to find photos from the 1970s of these things being used. Lots of modern ones being pulled by an EH200 or an EF65 2000.

Today I cycled to the Kato Hobby Center (a mere 12km each way), had a pleasant browse, and came back with some miscellaenous parts and bits and pieces:

 

 

Hi,

Do you know if they sell the brass pieces for interior lighting seperatly? Or if that one can be used for it? I can´t read the part # because of the reflection.

Years after my first purchase, one of Reyes' gifts has finally arrived! (Reyes = January 6th, traditionally the day that spaniards receive the presents instead Christmas). A TOMIX JR 211-3000 Nagano Area bought in Amazon.de via Japanzon.

Now I'm still waiting more gifts bought in Hobby Search.

Bought a really cheap MA Joban line 103 series set on Mercari (A0553). International and domestic shipping were for free.

 

E83FD1BA-DBB3-4D6A-ABAC-144E1560BF12.jpeg

 

The set was listed as junk because of a noisy and non-smooth running motor. The boggies on the motor were not properly clipped and one of the motor shaft was dislodged. The vise was stuck. After putting everything in place, removing a bit of grease from one of the boggies, the motor is running without any problem. A bit more maintenance is probably required but it’s enough for the moment.

 

I’m very happy, feels like I got a train for free.

 

Unfortunately, no interior lighting.

There’s a number of possibilities although n scale products are 1:160. The loads that the Shiki comes with are fine but will look into other options. They do match the Tomix substation model from what i can see. Modern images of the actual wagons have loads similar to those on Shapeways.

See! Fun, isn't it? A bit more practice and you'll get the knack of surprise interior lighting as well 😉

This pack is part number is 29-953-1 ("EC用集電バネ6014"), pack of 20; these are the copper strips which relay power from the bogie pickups to the motor/lighting.

 

What do you mean by "brass pieces for interior lighting"?

The latest addition to my Meitetsu rabbit hole arrived today, I also got a stack of HiAce vans that will be handy for layouts and the 2 batches of people of the night district, a number will be used around the pachinko parlour I have on order.

I’ve been tempted to get one of these as they vaguely fall into my interest with the Iida-sen but I am more into the the section south of Iida, sadly the services these units run on terminate at Iida, I got to see one there back in 2017.

Today I found a little shop tucked away behind our new place called Treasure Trains. It’s quite a small shop, but the guy really knows his stuff. Most of the stock, HO and N looks to be RRP but he has some stock that is difficult to find. The shop looks in its infancy at present but certainly good to have something on my doorstep. Anyway, the guy took one look at the silver Tomix wheel set and found my some replacement black wheels for my Shikis. I will post the improvements in the relevant thread once i have completed. Also got some Kato shortening knuckle  couplers (28-187)for between the consist. I have some between my Taki rakes and I love the prototypical looking distance.

I think @Szepessy is referring to the brass pickups for the KATO lights. Afaik KATO does not sell them separately, but other brands, most notably TORM, does.

Christmas just came again... 😁

 

Today’s latest haul from Zenmarket - four steam locomotives, a Taki 3000 tanker, the SL Yamaguchi coaches and some miscellaneous Assy parts for my old ED75s.

 

Out of all the steam locomotives, three have real significance to me: I saw the C57 135 at Ōmiya in the Railway Museum; travelled behind the D51 200 on the SL Yamaguchi; and finally saw the C57 1 under overhaul at the Kyoto Railway Museum. The C12 (my second) is because I’m a sucker for cute and to me, these locomotives are just plain cute...
