  1. Since we already have a Japanese N Gauge and Other Gauges version of this thread, why not show your Worldwide Model purchases as well! I took delivery of Roco's DR BR 601 "IC Max Liebermann". The N Gauge version is mine, while the HO model belongs to my father. Guess it's sort of my fault that he bought it. :angel12: Recently I also picked up an Arnold DR BR 74 at a model train market which was part of the open-day at locomotive depot Berlin-Schöneweide. Incidentally her big prototype sister was parked right outside the roundhouse.
  2. Apparently, this is a thing. http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2017/11/20/transforming-trains-protect-japan-in-shinkansen-henkei-robo-shinkalion

    Kato - New Releases

    Yikes! One really has to be a hardcore Kato fan to buy this (still absolutely wrong model) over the Tomix version.
  4. Unfortunately not. It was a 20% off thing. I think the best price you can find right now is on eBay. Kühn does make them in different flavours. http://www.kuehn-digital.de/wagen.html Grün, Rehbraun, Mintgrün, ČSD, ČD and PKP. But as a Berlin person, "Hauptstadtfarbe" was the way to go!
  5. Another purchase from MBS-Sebnitz's special promotion arrived. Kühn DR Sputnik colour bi-level coaches.

    What did you order or the post deliver?

    Just received an eagerly awaited package from Singapore containing a Kato 223-2500 & 225-5100 Series Kansai Airport / Kishuji Rapid. Thanks a lot, Sammy! 🙂 Also, DM-Toys had some eBay acutions last week, which ended kinda low. I guess they won't repeat that mistake any time soon...

    "Bring me the brain, Igor!"
  9. When you can't decide which colour you like best
  10. But isn't all of Arnold's stuff produced in China?
  11. More Hankyu, yes! Why do they both have to be released at the same time though...

    Crazy Auctions / Prices Thread

    It is sold out already and the prices are going up in Japan as well https://buyee.jp/item/search/query/kato 10-1476 However $1,500 is just crazy. (Boy, am I glad I ordered it right when it came up)
  13. Fleischmann. Both, coaches and loco.
  14. More East German rolling stock! Got some Prussian DR coaches to go with the Prussian P8

    I wouldn't recommend that. The movie is a direct sequel to the second season.

    It's good fun. Very recommended if you've seen the show.

    Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Movie: Take On Me JR West Kyoto Line 223 Series Hankyu Kobe Main Line 6000 Series Sapporo Shiden Type 240? on front of the Tanukikoji shopping arcade JR Hokkaido's Hamanasu with DD51 1130 and some ED79 I don't think 1130 ever wore Hokutosei colour. They probably confused it with 1138.
  18. And another new model just arrived. MBS-Sebnitz has a special discount going on, so I had to order a few things~ DR 173 001 diesel railcar by KRES
  19. Have you ever wondered what to do with those single coaches you bought when you got into Japanese models? 🤔 http://dd51twilight.fc2web.com/train/gallery/rinji/chindoko/900415-chindoko-ef58150.html http://dd51twilight.fc2web.com/train/gallery/rinji/chindoko/910428-chindoko-ef65.html http://dd51twilight.fc2web.com/train/gallery/rinji/chindoko/910429-chindoko-ef65.html
  20. I was able to snatch some Minitrix DR Schürzenwagen that I've been searching for quite a while. They can go together with my BR 01.5 now.

    Kato - New Releases

    Take a good look at the containers.
  22. The Shibata couplers are meant for coupling the coaches together. The knuckle couplers go onto the end cars that couple with the loco.
  23. Bye bye, 100 series! I'm so glad I got to ride the Hakone Tozan before it's completely taken over by Noriaki Okabe's abominations.

    Because aesthetic~ As long as it isn't as reliable as an Alfa it's fine though. 😉
