Hello my name is Ed (aka Edo-san),
I have been interested in Japanese N scale for 10 years, assisting another person in his Japanese layout whilst doing the exhibition circuit mostly in Sydney and twice to Melbourne.
As the other person has left Australia and moved to an overseas country, I think its time to start building my own layout and maybe one day go out and do the exhibition circuit. The first idea for the layout that comes to mind at the moment is doing the section at Koboro station - Muroran line (Hokkaido).
My interest is during the JNR days of the steam / diesel transition period.
But to satisfy my need for speed, my Shinkansen rolling stock is mostly JRE that are: 200 series, E1 (original colour), E2, E4, E5, E6, E7 (the 400 and E3 are on my 'buy later list') and one ring in from JRW 500 series.
