  1. Keihan Ōtsu Lines model trains

    Hello there 611F.
  2. MA Rapi:t variations A0750, 51 and 53

    A0750 = Blue - 2004 release - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10037236 A0751 = Blue - 2004 release - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10037237 A0752 = Blue - 2015 release - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10308647 A0753 = Peach (White/Pink) - 2015 release - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10308650 AFAIK the 2015 versions received: a. new power unit w/flywheels b. LED lights c. improved trucks even if the 2004 ones ran only ok ... the new ones should run much much better, using their improved power unit. While I do not have any of these sets, I do have the 2 Keihan 800 series releases which came out in 2014 using their new power unit ... they run spectacularly so I would imagine that the same will be true for the Rapi:t sets
  3. Tomix - New Releases

    understated release of the day. ;-)
  4. Tomix - New Releases

    Has anyone seen TOMIX's new TNOS system in person ... and/or actually used it? I've seen plenty of demo videos on YouTube and it looks really good considering what the system is doing ...

    to be honest I hadn't thought about it ... need to find better source imagery if I were even to attempt that (at least I have an extra roof I can play around with) I only have these photos taken back in 2010 or 2015 (whenever the Keihan Centenary was)

    excellent ... will go nicely with my current 5 80 series cars (single one is a double-ended kit-bash)

    Here is one of the first photos I've come across showing 611F-612 (612 specifically) wearing the [new] standard corporate Keihan colors

    thank you for restoring my ability to post in this forum. (new forum software is holding a grudge against me for some reason)

    thank you!
  15. Keihan Ōtsu Lines model trains

    QQ folks ... Approximately what year did Keihan switch from the old silver arrow icon thing to their actual name + flag logo? I've seen it as late as '08 ... but I can't remember when the actual shift took place. Anyone know? thx
