    How did you improve your rolling stock?

    With the arrival of my last 3 Japan Oil Terminal Taki 1000’s I finally get to finish off my 98971 case, I have changed the car numbers so I have no duplicates and I have fitted them all with TN’s.

    What did you order or the post deliver?

    Well my slightly delayed AmiAmi pre-order arrived today, some items in it indicate a fundamental shift in direction for a future layout. I have decided to expand my JRF fleet to pretty much anything that runs on the Tokaido Honsen, the EF200, will come in handy to deal with my growing fleet of Kato freight wagons. I also got the Taki 1000’s to finally finish off filling my 98971 case, plus more Koki’s equals the need for more containers.

    I think you're on the money on that one.

    It would have been much better if they had used Tomy's Thomas the Tank range for that video, it would have certainly brought a whole new meaning to "Bust my Buffers".

    I know where you are coming from, I ended up cancelling my pre order with AmiAmi for the Kiha 11 at their displeasure but oh well they'll just have to live with that, I had a rethink about it due to the fact I would have to make modifications to it, not too mention the fact that I purchased a Kato 313-0 Series 4 Car set off them for about ¥1000 cheaper than the Kiha 11 2 car set.

    Are you certain that it is animal hair that you have there, I remember seeing a NSFW video on another group showing Tomy Tomica trains being tested between a variety of cleavages until they where finally stopped in their tracks.

    AmiAmi and Hobby Search already have the 4 car Basic 10-1413 and 4 car Add On 10-1414 packs on pre order, for re release.

    After seeing your name change it was pretty obvious what you had purchased.

    Kato - New Releases

    It looks like I am going to have to expand my fleet of Kato locomotives as my JRF fleet is predominantly Tomix models, I only have an EH200 and an EF66-100 at the moment as well as an EF200 on pre order, the bummer is I already have 2 EF65-2000's and 2 DD51-800's in my roster. Another issue that I am going to have is that by the looks of it I will probably need to build an fuel depot on a future layout, I already have 15 Kato Taki 1000's and 17 Tomix Taki 1000's so with the addition of the Taki 43000's to the my tanker fleet I am going to have to have somewhere for them all to go.

    Kato - New Releases

    Nice that they included Taki 143645 in that consist, it would have to be the most elusive yet most photographed of any of the Taki 43000 tankers. I had avoided purchasing any Taki 43000’s before as they are being steadily withdrawn from service, I’ll have to do some research of this set and see if it fits into my 2012 to current day timeline.

    Tomix - New Releases

    As soon as I saw those trucks I slapped down a pre order straight away, I am going to have a freight yard as a main feature on a layout I am planning to build and the trucks with the 12' containers would be perfect to spread over the apron.

    Good place to find numberboards? (Or similar)

    Yep, good old Murphy’s Law in practice.

    Indoctrinating children

    I have to agree with you there as well, I saw the Shikishima going out for test runs at least 3 times when I was in Tokyo last year and I never took a single photo of it as I thought it was hideous looking thing.

    I would suggest doing a thorough sweep of the room to find them, number plates aren't that hard to find compared to a lot of other parts such as builders plates and antennas.

    Knuckle coupler to replace Tomix JC04?

    Correct, Tomix models always have the instructions packed under the foam in the jewel case.
