    Hokutosei DD51s in HO?

    Hey! It's sold out at Hobby search, but is this the model that you are looking for? https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10198618 I found a few on buyee, and despite shipping should get you lower than the $160 point... http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/d290921380 http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/w240240018 Hope that helps...
  3. Title says it all really.... I purchased a HO DE10 in Sapporo a few weeks back. However, it had no packaging which I didn't think was too much of an issue until I realised I had one of the Kato HO cases, and have ended up buying a pair of Koki, and would like the DE10 to fit in that case. Hit me up if you have one you are willing to let go of. Thanks, Jason.
  4. Holy old thread batman... Yep its one of those... Do you still have this model Mark? I recently went on one of these Kiha40's for the first time in Sapporo, and love them. I ended up with a Tomix 3 car set, and an additional powered car that I got new from tomix world.... However, I could see myself with a HO model...
  5. Hi All! First time post to the HO section! Yet another Forum member to end up with HO gear after a long string of 'N scale only' thoughts... This arrived in the post this week. The same Koki 104's that are fairly common. I was in Japan last month and found a little shop with some second hand goods and ended up purchasing this..... However, It didn't come with a box though, so I am on the hunt for packaging for a Kato DE10, to fit into this gap! If you have one you are willing to sell, I'm happy to buy! I am also looking for the ID plates to match, as most of them have fallen off are in poor condition. I purchased this kato HO case over a year ago and had been using it for a tool case, at least thats what I was telling myself..

    Kiha 40 in Sapporo

    Sorry for not replying sooner, Despite the early start, I did catch the Okhotsk, which was very cool. It was indeed a 183, the inside was quite different to what I was expecting. From Asahikawa I actually caught a Kiha40 along the lines back to Sapporo, swapped to another @ Takikawa, then caught a local train back from Iwamizawa which was great. I love the feel and pace of the KiHa40, everything slows down a bit, and there is time to take in everything going on. I have ave caught a few more from Hakodate the last few days, as well as getting some photos of the yards and a Yellow and a white model that are labeled as ‘South Hokkaido Railway’.... Pictures to come in a few weeks.
  8. Hey All! I’m currently in Sapporo and would love to take a day trip tomorrow on something a bit older, like the picture below ( Kiha40? or something like that). Any suggestions? I will also be in Hakodate Monday/Tuesday and could do similar from there. Thanks in advance, Jason.

    And then it goes back the way it came at 14:28. What locomotive is pulling the Koki? Is it a EF200?
  12. Hi All, Where would I find a timetable for this train? Thanks,

    What did you order or the post deliver?

    I had this lot on back order @ HobbySearch. Going to try out some lighting from Cosmic on one of my modules. The box car is quite small, I like it lots, but don't plan on making it move on a track.

    Hey all, Just finalised my order in an email with Peter, and asked what has happened to his website. He tells me that he had an issue with the web host. He is still making modules and is happy to receive orders via email, so feel free to email him @ - trainthings(at)yahoo.com I have been really happy with his work, and fast postage with items arriving well before they should. Hope this helps,
