@cteno4 in my recent trips to Japan I have seen very many on sale. Especially the larger Popondetta and TamTam in Akihabara have many of them in stock.

Yes, that's the one.  They're solid construction, stack well, and waterproof for transporting things through the rain to car and back for conventions.  Our basement can use all the organisational help we can fling at it, and these have performed superbly and in style.

Yeah for a while poppendetta had them on the website then went away, I’ve not gone back to look lately, just bummed they have over doubled in price on amazon.co.jp. I think my shipping was like 1200yen for 2 of them as well.

Is this available only at HS? Only for a limited time? Corona related?

That is the HS workaround option for shipping now.  May or may not conitnue in the future.

Nice thinking though, Jeff.  Hmm, alas, they don't have any Groove Garage ones now that we would want.

@Steve are you planning to add each train to your signature?

 

At the speed you are going, the forum will become quickly unreadable 😉

My first Japanese purchase for quite a while, but fitting with my latest project.

I was looking at the Iida line freight set, which includes these wagons along with a tank wagon and brake van. Given the price of these two wagons, and that fact I already have a number of brake vans, the difference for the single tank wagon seemed quite high. I only need a couple of wagons for this in any event...they pretty much fill the siding as can be seen.

 

Really got to get cracking on that cement works!

Curious to know for those that ordered during this COVID-19 situation, how long did it take to get your delivery in the US from Hobby Search?  I have a package that was sent out on April 16th, seems stuck in Tokyo somewhere...

My first purchase since January. I recieved this Tomix 485-3000 hatsukari set from Rail Gallery Rokko. First time shopping with them, can't believe I haven't found them sooner. Their packaging certainly is superb. I would guess the tiny pieces of foam were placed by them, not tomix, to reduce movement in the case. It came DHL. 

 

Since shipping options are limited with other shops I have put other purchases on hold.

 

This is quite the beautiful detailed set.

Yes, RG-R always uses foam inside the original packaging to make sure the train doesn’t get damaged in Transit.

Do I remember correctly that RG-R also test their trains before shipping?

A long delayed Hobby Search EMS order arrived today after sitting for over a month at Haneda  in Tokyo and then siting for 7-8 days at Toronto. Now I have the track to complete my  layout revisions.

Seeing turnouts like that almost makes me want to switch to Fine track for the versatility. Very nice!

Interestingly I received my parcel with some Kato and Casco storage books today after it was dispatched around 1.5 weeks ago via Air Mail. That‘s the fastest it‘s ever been 😄

Curved turnouts are the best for small spaces.

FedEx brought this today:

Interestingly I never ordered the bike/motorcycle Tomytec box and it apparently got gifted to me together with the coaches. Those were from Rakuten and didn‘t even had a picture in the ad, so I got them with a bit of doubt but I suppose it went well in the end 😄
