Something interesting from Tramway

I think these will be very popular models, not just with JNR modellers. There's also private railway versions being made, such as Ohmi and Seibu.

 

Cheers,

G'day Charles,

 

The Neko models are made for them by Tramway, so the quality will be the same. I can only assume that the price difference reflects custom painting in the private railway liveries, new etched number plates, and possibly licensing fees.

 

All the best,

 

Mark.

Even though they are 1:80 scale the prototype locos are so small that they could find a place in 1:87 layouts...especially US prototype ones...

This is a very positive development- perhaps an ED19 is a distinct possibility in the future? I would be all over that.

An ED19 - how good would that be? I'd be keen to have a couple myself.

 

That's a great video too, do you know what line it was filmed on? The sequence at 4:41 where the train crosses the street is wonderfully atmospheric! :)

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

The ED19s operated on the Iida Line.

Hobby Search has a World Kogei HO ED19 just waiting to go into your Cart.

 

However - for the asking price I would have expected a completed model, not a kit.

I just recently picked up the Kato N-scale version with a Myojo Cement set.

I've looked at the World Kogei model, but it's out of my price range for a kit. And knowing what a procrastinator I am it'd probably never get built anyway. Nice though.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.
