The Shiki 1000s are meant to run behind the locomotive and are sometimes seen with Taki or Koki consists behind them. Nothing wrong with what you have but it sounds like you need to rectify your lack of freight traffic.


Agreed. There is nothing better than a full rack of 30 to 40 Wamus snaking behind a locomotive.

Amiami notified me today that my preorder of Tomix 98057 KiHa100 is ready. It includes a car number transfer sheet for all four prototypes so I decided to get a second set as well - I don't mind that the numbers for two cars will be the same as my previous set, they are from a different period anyway. Also impulsively ordered a Greenmax Tie Tamper Senken Kogyo from Hobby Search - my layout is in (re)construction all the time, some machinery is needed 😄 Too bad I'm in final weeks of my distance bachelor studies so I'll be able to play with all my stuff not before the summer kicks in..

I ordered a Kato 10-950 Takamatsu-Kotohira Railway 30 type, a 2-car set by Hobby Center Kato.  It was only released in early March and now Hobby Search and RG Rokko are sold out.  I searched JNS but didn't see any prior note of this release.

 

This is Keikyu 230 Type as it had a second life on the Takamatsu-Kotohira Railway from 1978-2007.  After seeing this train on video numerous times  I have long wanted it.

I'm glad i'm not that into kokis and cargo freight trains, it would really be the end of my wallet....

 

Don't worry about TaKi's and KoKi's they are the least of your worries, containers are the thing that will really get you, I have over 400 containers of various types in my collection of which only about 20% came with KoKi's the rest of them I purchased in packs and would be well in excess of $2000.00AUD in value, I currently have 23 locomotives in my roster and they cost me less than the containers did.

Wow, that's really a lot. Have you built a huge freight terminal to show them all off?

 I am about to start building a layout which will have an E&S styled freight terminal loosely based on Hozumi on the Tokaido Honsen. I have pretty much all the materials to make it, track, buildings, detail parts, scenery materials etc, I just need the time and a bit of space to do it, I have to clear out the LEGO shed first.

Time to start flooding this thread again after what seems to be an enternity (about one month) of not having fresh new parcels to tear into....

 

First parcel:

While not having as fanciful a bookcase and sleeve like the Kato, the West Express Ginga is also very beautiful in its own way.... The dark blue and purple roof and mini details are astonishing...

One last parcel from Ami, after deciding to get it re-shipped after almost a year of sitting in Ami's store... 

 

20210404_165743.thumb.jpg.3c2c4f33c2bb8d3ad313210b9fdca003.jpg

 

The usual Ami post card which makes a nice collectible 

 

20210404_165802.thumb.jpg.cde61e3e22adadafbdb2dad45cb07f5c.jpg

 

The box is BIG...

 

20210404_165838.thumb.jpg.8c91f0a1399139da1d7f3bd7948cecaf.jpg

 

For not so many items...

20210404_170139.thumb.jpg.a3474039eed4095d649eaef9d8d9252b.jpg

 

A E233-1000 series that was on sale and finally to complete my E233-1000 series.

Nice haul of goodies there, Sammy. I tend to agree with you about the full truck and trailer series. I have quite a few full series now, where I really only wanted one or two of the truck. They're all nice, but to use them all would flood my layout. But this one, trailer collection 10 is a bit different. I think I'll actually use all of those flat beds  together for a freight terminal scene.

ahh i skipped to the pictures and wondered how you got tha trailer collection from amiami!

 

yeah with the collections at times its hard to say exactly which one you want most once you have them! Luckily with the club here i will take extras to club events when i figure i should get rid of some and they get snapped up usually. use to be no biggie to invest in a collection and not worry about getting rid of extras fast, but now at $100-150 it can be an ouch. but really for the quality $10-15 each is still reallly reasonable.

Yeah i actually loved the design on the concrete truck trailers and skipped right into pre-ordering it... And when it finally got released, looking at all the videos made me think why i pre-ordered the entire set when i really only want the concrete trucks.... I would seriously get rid of the other trucks if it is sought after... 

Then again, without the pre-ordering, it might be difficult to get the concrete trucks i want after all, since they will also be sought after and hence tend to be expensive or not available separately...

You do realise there is a simple solution to this dilemma, buy some KoKi’s and build a small freight yard, that way you can give your trucks something to do.

My new Shorty arrived in the post today, an early variant, yellow 103 series!

spacer.png

 

It's a 4 car set in one box and it came with a bunch of extra parts, as you can choose between different front ends and between air conditioned and old non-air conditioned roofs. And with a price of 2300 yen, price I think it was a pretty good deal. I'll also post more pics of it in the B Train Shorty topic if anyone is interested, but I don't want to flood both topics with it, lol.

Another package should also arrive tomorrow with some other stuff. A set of straight tracks and curves, and also some lubricant stuff I ordered.
