  1. Hi, I just got myself a 103 series kit from Greenmax. I also got 4 sets of bogies and a set of pantographs, as specified by the manufacturer. Everything went well when I assembled the kit. However, I ran into a problem while trying to attach the bogie to the car itself. There appears to be no way to connect the bogie and the car, and I wasn't able to find answers to my problem online. Attached below are the pictures of the bogie and the car. Thank you for reading this, and any advice or help would be appreciated. This is my first time using a forum, so I apologize for any mistake that o may have made. Cheers, kokutetsu103
  2. Jiji Press report on the press preview/track connection ceremony at Sotetsu's new station that connects the new Sotetsu Line extension to Shin-Yokohama/Hiyoshi with the JR Freight Line via a junction just past the platforms. Scheduled to be operational/open 11/30 this year, presumably in conjunction with the autumn timetable revision.
  3. A very well filmed cabview video of the whole JR Sanko Line between Gotsu (Shimane prefecture) and Miyoshi (Hiroshima prefecture). This line is scheduled to be closed on 31 March 2018, so hurry if you still want to catch a ride on this line!

    Suburban Tokyo Themed Layout

    Hello everyone! Today marks one of the first days that I've begun work on an actual (hopefully) N-Scale layout! As these first two pictures demonstrate, I finally arranged a deal to get some space for a small layout, which at the moment is 16' × 2' (really only 20", because of the upper shelf support poles.) Eventually, when time, useable space and family permit, I have plans to expand it into a reversed 'F' shape, through the use of additional shelves along a different wall, and a heavy duty wooden center island table left over from some HO-scale projects. The shelving on the rear wall will the be top part of the letter 'F', and will add about 11' by 2' (again, only 20" of that useable). Final dimensions of the center island table TBD. (Possibly 5' × 6'?) I'll try and post the potential track plan(s) later tonight! I am also always open to feedback, so please chime in, it might really help me out! Thanks for your interest! ~Phillip R.

    JR related podcasts?

    Hi all, I have a total of nearly 3 hours of driving every day, to and from work and so I listen to a number of podcasts. With my recent obsession regarding everything Japan Rail, I was looking for one but came up empty. I might be missing but the iTunes store doesn't seem to turn up anything. Maybe an episode here or there but nothing strictly dedicated to the history, today and the future of JR (at least, not in English!)... So I was thinking, I had always wanted to start a podcast. However, my problem with this particular subject is that I really don't know much (yet!). I try to read or watch as much as I can in my off time. I've really been enjoying Japan Railway Journal episodes on YouTube as well reading posts here on the forum and blogs I happen to stumble on. Would anyone be interested in starting a podcast centered around all things Japan Rail? We can maybe come up with a structure for the podcast here (topics of discussion, format of the show, frequency of releases, etc, etc.) I wouldn't mind getting the ball rolling for someone else either since I really don't have any expertise on JR trains or trains in general. We could split the show on current Japan train related events then talk about new releases or have special guests come on and talk about their latest projects, layouts or anything so long as it's Japan railroad related content! Honestly, just talking about this has me excited but again, not being any kind of authority on the subject, I may not be well suited to start this endeavor. All I can say is, I would really love to have a JR podcast in my favorite podcast list that I can listen to weekly or every two weeks even. Heck, I'd settle for once a month at this point. I feel like there's so much content that could be covered there'd be virtually no end to the podcast. Well! That's it for now! What do you all think?
  6. Hello, We had another trip to Japan a few weeks ago, so thought i'd post some pics for you. This first batch are from around Osaka and a trip to the railway museum in Kyoto.
  7. Hello everyone, As announced from a short time, the sunrise express is approaching in HO. Here is the Tomix page for this train : http://www.tomytec.co.jp/tomix/menu/index_hojoho.htm As I have ordered two full set, I'll show them there when they arrive. Cheers! Nicolas
