  7. Hello, Hankyu is prided for their cleanliness. You should find they are the cleanest trains in Japan.
  8. Hello, Not train related, but I'm often thanked for recommending a visit to the Osaka Aquarium. Partly train related, a good day trip is to visit Daikoku-ji (careful, several temples have similar names) Kinkaku-ji and Ryoan-ji temples, in that order, and then take the Keifuku line from Ryoanji to Arashiyama. There's a large restaurant just near the station to the right of the main exit as you walk out. After lunch, visit Tenryu-ji temple and then stroll through the Arashiyama Bamboo Garden. Keifuku is the last line of street trams running in Kyoto. They have a mixture of old and new rolling stock. If you have time, and are into photography, you'll enjoy waiting at the level crossing at Ryoanji Station and photographing the variety of trams. Hope that helps.
  9. Hello, Can anyone help me get Kenwood Chef Mixer Parts from the UK? What I need is someone to receive the parts and then ship to me internationally. Companies in the UK have the parts, but won't ship internationally. I can order the parts and ship to your address. Once you receive the parts, I will pay shipping in advance and you forward to me. Please let me know if you can help. Cheers TT
  10. Couplers for Tomix trains

    Hello, For 92713, 115 Yoko, is it fitted with Arnold couplers that sit in pockets with black metal clip on underside of pocket? If so, you can use 0381 TN Coupler. You must carefully remove the metal clip with tweezers. Remove the spring ... before if flies out across the room. Remove the Arnold coupler. Insert the spring. Insert the TN coupler after assembling the 2 parts. Click the metal clip back into position. Replacement springs = JC11 Replacement cover clip = JC16 I would recommend 1 pack of each for spares. Then buy as many 0381 as you need to do all your trains ... this is the most economical way of replacing couplers ... but it is not as realistic as the ones that are independent of the bogie.
