Yes, indeed - it's become apparent. I will be acquiring more table real estate in the near future to accommodate these longer trains. :)

Full length 11 cars E231 is the best (for me - memories).

Yes, much nicer now compared to when it was only a 4 car train.

Nice haul Junior!   Its hard to appreciate the size of a full 16 car shinkansen, even in N scale, till you try to fit it in onto a normal sized circle of unitrack!  We'll have to have a bay area JNS members shinkansen line up one of these days.

Yes, we will - when are you returning to the bay area so we can go back to Crocket N Trak club and run our 16 car Shinkansens. :)

I actually just moved into my new apartment the other day!  Now I just gotta figure out which box the shinkansens are packed in...  :grin

It's all about JR Central Trains running session with their simple and elegant livery: 383, 373, Kiha 85 x2, 313-5000 and 313-8000.

Running my newly acquired Kato JR East Limited Express Trains: 351 Super Azusa and 251 Super View Odoriko.  The 251 is beautiful, I can't wait to get the new 251 with new color.  The 351 is also very nice and the tilt is more noticeable than the 885 Sonic and Series 383 as it it has taller front design.  The livery on these two are subtle and very elegant.

Also newly acquired is a different Kato 253 set - this one a 6+3 car set with the NEX Logo already applied.  It joins my older 253's, one from Kato and the other Tomix and are the 3+3 configuration without the NEX logos.  I also brought out their younger sibling the E259 NEX.

Wow the striking red and white is really nice!  The 253 series are nice... wished Kato or Tomix would eventually do the Nikko color 253 series soon though...

 

The 351 Super Azusa is one of my favorite Limited Express trains... something about the bubble head and that lighted LED front panel... and the overall cool white and light blue... just works wonders!
