  1. This is very good. Perfect if it includes trains/stations from other regions. Thanks for the info.
  2. Thanks but usually such videos don't have captions of the announcement. Sometimes, I can find the full script online based on parts of the sentence I can catch. But not every announcement is documented. I realised even under the same JR, the announcements are slightly different across different regions. So was wondering if there are any train otakus who actually keep a list of these announcements.
  3. Does anyone knows if there is any website that has collection of Japanese announcements made in trains and/or stations?

    Lighting Trains

    Great! Thanks for the info.

    Lighting Trains

    It is easier to go on top but it does not conduct properly. I have to lightly press on the train for the LED to light up. Going down gives good conduction just that it requires some force to push the strips.

    Lighting Trains

    I am trying to install LED lighting on my KATO N700 Shinkansen. The conducting strips should go below the the small tab in the groove as shown below and not above it right?

    Kato - New Releases

    Ya, I know Tomix is releasing them but I only buy KATO trains. By the way, KATO seems to be releasing a railway related app. Was revealed in the Model Rail Contest held early this month. https://tetsudo-ch.com/126162.html

    Kato - New Releases

    I have the Rilakkuma wrapping for Yamonote Line 10-1227. I wonder what is the difference. How come there is no Hello Kitty 500 Shinkansen...
  9. So in general, your importer sells at a lower price compared to if you were to bring them in yourself from Japan via online shops? Good for you. I am not even sure if there are any more train model hobby shops in Singapore. Even if there is, it may even be more expensive than getting myself. I have been buying from Amazon Japan.

    Scenery Posters

    Is there such a thing where I can paste it on a wall or something and use it as a background for a simple diorama? Update: I found there is but is there any from KATO or other Japanese train makers?

    Double Track with DCC

    Thanks KVP, I will try to move the double crossover to the other end so that it is directly opposite the double feeder. I am just curious how would the voltage drop so much over a mere few meters. Some kind of internal resistance present in the rails?

    Double Track with DCC

    I just got the double crossover and used it with my V11 set. However, the train tends to slow down as it moves further away from the double crossover. I ran the train at the slowest possible speed to make it obvious. As can see from the first two videos, the train lights up after passing the double crossover. As it moves away, it gets dimmer and by the time it reaches the opposite loop, the lights are off. Is this normal? I ran the train at full speed in the third video for comparison. It is not so obvious but can still feel the same. 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmWylgUZBjE 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK8gYDEGAgw 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG_rU7tc2FI

    Double Track with DCC

    Is it because the two sets of wheels on each side of the isolator getting different current and hence speed that causes the jump? I did some read up on KATO's 20-210 double crossover but couldn't find it's instruction manual online to understand more. I am thinking of using it in my V11 double track set which effectively just like a inner and outer loop layout. The V11 comes with a double feeder, I have two power packs and also 2 point switches from my M2 set. KATO mentioned that 4 feeders are required but if it is a loop layout, 2 will suffice which translates to 2 power packs. The double crossover comes with a cable which I assume is for the point switch. With my current inventory, am I good to run with the double crossover?

    Double Track with DCC

    Yes, I have this booklet that comes with my V11 unitrack and it says the same thing. I can understand both packs have to be in the same direction but why speed as well?
