Hi gents,

just a thought,Gavino200 is going to monitor and record the world tour route as it travels the globe,however,I d also like to record and monitor its journey in video form on youtube.If anyone is happy to do this could you just shoot a short video,10-20seconds and email it to me at,

pauljag900@yahoo.co.uk

soon as I receive the first video I ll upload it with a brief description of what it’s about and then add further videos on as I receive them.

just a thought and no problem if members do nt wish to take part,

regards,

paul

Ok we are off now!

 

Ive started a new thread for following the travels of the JNS forum car around the world!

 

 

we will keep this older thread for further background discussion.

 

Please let Paul know if you are interested in being on the travel list. We are trying to keep the car in country as long as possible to keep shipping costs and times low for folks. There are decal sets included for each participant to have to make their own pair of containers if they wish. We would love folks to take pictures of the car on their layout and/or the car in some local location of RR significance or special to the locality. Folks can also take a video of the car and paul can post it to the youtube channel. There are also quarter sheets of paper that folks can add a name, date, location and message to pass on with the car.

 

Enjoy!

Where did you get blank white containers? Or are those regular containers painted white?

These are blank white aoshima containers. Unfortunately not in stock right now.

sad tomix discontinued their cheap blank 12 count boxes.

 

you can always just get the cheap JRF containers and soak them in isopropanol to remove the paint and decals (ultrasonic bath helps loads). The paint white. I had to do this to make kato branded JRM containers for mr kato...

Hi gents,

ok,the tour car is finally underway.

Above is the list of participants that we have so far,can anyone who wants to be on it but who s name is nt on the list please message me so I can create an up to date list,also,and only for the purpose of recording it s journey,can you let me know what city and country you are in please? Thanks.

 

i see no reason to deviate from Gavins original plan of it touring America,then Europe and then Asia/Pacific and finally back to America so it has circled the globe so to speak(plus Jeff will probably want his car back😂😂👍) The only issue I can foresee at this time is the cost of sending/ recieving from another country. My geography is terrible so my suggestion is for people in that particular country to just sort out its best route between themselves before it travels on to a diferent country.This may need volunteers in each country for organising this and also for posting overseas,as this will cost more than posting internally.Any issues regarding cost can be discussed as a few of us have said we ll help out with postage if anyone has a problem regarding cost.

I m quite prepared to recieve the car for the uk,organise it’s journey and then post on to Asia/Pacific and will cover any custom and postal charges.

There s only me from the uk on the list but I speak to a few via email who are not as active as some and hope I can talk them into joining in as it will only cost them a few pounds for internal postage.

 

with regards to the car itself,it will arrive in a box with some spare transfers and slips of paper.Having discussed things with other forum members the general idea is as follows,

1. photograph the car on your layout or any place of interest and post on the forum thread set up by Jeff.

2. A short 20-30 seconds video emailed to me and I ll upload it to the YouTube playlist I have set up.

3. Use the slips of paper to add any comments.

4. A postage stamp from your country stuck to the box the car travels in.

5. Feel free to take two sets of stickers for yourselves to replicate the tour car and as your own keep sake of having taken part.

of course you do nt have to do any of the above except to photo it for the forum.

 

i m in no doubt I may have missed something here so please feel free to say.

many thanks,

Paul

That’s a good point of where the car will finally come to rest. Maybe we can do a forum fund raiser raffle for it or if we get a project part goin it could be a prize. I was happy donating the car and container for paul’s Project!

 

Cheers,

Any additional stops allowed?  If Perth Australia is added, that can at least visit me and mattdwnunder, who I would presume not object to taking part.

Paul asked me if the car should make a stop in Switzerland. I would like too, but because of the temporary nature of my layout, it may arrived in the off season, and I don't want it to sit arround for months before I have a layout in operation again.

 

So I have do decline respectfully.

 

Maybe next time, when some other Swiss members want to join.

Dig out a bit of loco stock and find your local club.  Could be an option?

Received my tomix double container car. I just need to give it a coat of white paint and it'll be my copy of the tour car.

 

Where is the wagon now anyway?
