mojo posted a topic in Hobby Shops - Where are they?I have been working on a map of places to visit in the Tokyo and surrounding areas, including Kawasaki and Yokohama. It has a number of train shops and places like train museums to visit, as well as loads of other stuff. I started a wiki as well but it is nowhere near finished. https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zIv8e-XHKUeY.kmSTlyl3I8IU If anyone has anything to add to it, please let me know and I'll put it on there. As well as the model trains category, the general category has lots of useful stuff, ranging from the location of coin lockers to places to eat to ATMs that take international cards. Full disclosure - I'm friends with the owner of Tokaisou, the hotel that is marked with the home icon in Asakusa. I stay there twice a year on average, it's my home away from home. As well as being well placed for access to Akihabara (two stops away on the Tsukuba Express line) it's cheap. Useful wiki pages: Shops Taxis Phones Money Getting to Japan
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosHere's another great upload by HINTEL1824TRAIN. This is a zenmen tenbou video of a ride on Semboku 7000 series rolling stock from Nankai Namba, just slightly south-east from JR West's JR Namba (formerly Minatomachi Station), to Izumi-Chūō. Nankai Namba is elevated, while the ground-level Minatomachi was undergrounded when rebuilt as JR Namba. This service operates as a rapid until Mozu where the change to Semboku's line happens, and then stops at all stations to the end of the line. The English Wikipedia page on Semboku has some interesting information; this line was meant to be planned, constructed, and operated by Nankai to serve the Semboku New Town development, but they had some accidents in the late '60s. The government forced them to buy new trains and infrastructure, so they were low on funds and were slow in developing this line. So Osaka prefecture developed the line through Osaka Prefectural Urban Development Company. The rolling stock resembles JR West's 223 series, although I don't see anything about design commonalities. These are built by Kawasaki, who build some of JRW's rolling stock including the 223s. http://maps.google.com/?ll=34.553084,135.51286&spn=0.015251,0.022316&t=m&z=16 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osaka_Prefectural_Urban_Development http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semboku_Rapid_Railway http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namba_Station http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senboku_New_Town http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%A4%A7%E9%98%AA%E5%BA%9C%E9%83%BD%E5%B8%82%E9%96%8B%E7%99%BA7000%E7%B3%BB%E9%9B%BB%E8%BB%8A
