Compared to some, I am apparently an example of purchasing restraint!:

 

Kato 10-453, 0 series

Kato 10-354 Grand Hikari 100 Series 

Kato 10-251, 205 series Yamanote Line

Kato 10-284 Keiyo Line Series 205

Kato 10-150 Izukyu Resort 21

Kato 10-474 Super View Odoriko Series 251

Modemo Enoshima 1500 S.K.I.P.

Modemo Enoshima Series 20

MicroAce  A-0250 Dr. Yellow

Kato 3021-3, EF81

Kato 7008-2, DD51   X2

 

There are a couple more 20-year old locomotives around somewhere, and probably 30 freight cars. 

 

 

LOL! I was going to say that yours was a larger roster than mine, but in fact, we're pretty close to even. There's something to be said for "restraint" :D

I like your collection, bb. What's your opinion of the Kato C56? I'm rather tempted to get one, and perhaps run some tourist trains, Chichibu or Oigawa style.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

It's a nice model, not as detailed as the exquisite Tenshodo models, but considering it's a much older product and it's nearly half the price of those, not a minus in my eyes.  I like it because it is a what is called a "pike sized" loco suitable for small spaces, and at home on the rural branch line.  The C56 type is most famous for being used on the Koumi Line, usually hauling 2 or 3 coaches or a short freight, earning the nickname "highland pony".

Hi Qwerty...... Daniel

curiosity, why complete and uncomplete sets? are boxes without one or more cars or with junk or damaged cars?

I bought on yahoo and ebay some junk sets for spare parts and for kitbashing, if you need something or if you wanna sell yours  :grin ... (my last project is the original 300 J0 with 5 panto, finally I find the photos! but I need 2-3 cars more to cut & paste)

 

ciao

Massimo

The "complete"/"incomplete" statuses refer to "prototypical" complete sets. For example, the 300 is "complete" since I have all 16 cars, where as the 500 is "incomplete" since i only have 13, possibly only 11 cars, of the 16 needed. Fortunately, it does not refer to randomly missing cars in base/expansion boxes; otherwise i would be pulling my hair out trying to find individual cars to ease my OCD tendencies :P

 

Also, 1st/2nd/etc sets are mentioned, b/c in the grand scheme of things, I do plan to own multiple "complete sets" for a far-flung-future-planned Tokyo station. I know this sounds insane, but for example, sometimes an E4 will leave Tokyo attached to another E4, or 400 or E3... and I don't want to couple/uncouple/recouple various sets to have them arrive/leave the station in said configurations so I'll have all combinations in a hidden yard in whatever configurations I need/want. (this will happen as soon as i get a 6+ figure salary) *crosses fingers* :P

 

As far as the 300 junk set is concerned, I'd be more than happy to sell that to you for your J0 project~  I had purchased it off of yahoo.jp not knowing it was a junk set (i had yet to learn the kanji for "damaged"), so I mainly used it as a track&clearance-testing unit. It does run (rather loudly), some paint scratches, damaged headlights, nicks here and there. One pantograph is missing, but both panto housings are there. If you need any cars from Tomix 92639, PM me if you are interested, so that i can send pics of what I have and/or send the trains in your direction :)

You could count your Eurostars as complete 14-unit "regional" sets. Otherwise you need another expansion set, and then need to swap out one food service car for an additional first-class car -- not easy and not cheap! My understanding is that the regional sets, designed to run farther into the U.K. on various lines, were not used and lanquished in storage for years. (What a waste!) But your N-gauge version of history doesn't have to include that detail. Mine doesn't... I think my 14-car train is long enough to give the proper effect.

I didn't feel like making a forum-friendly list, so here's a dump from the spreadsheet I've got in my iPad. I don't think it's 100% accurate anymore, but close enough =)

Well, I weakened and got one which arrived the other day. I've run it on the club layout, I'm very happy with its performance. Nice images, too, thanks for those!

The picture shows the present fleet of the Tomiiden. Some cars still need work (motorization and MT couplers). All Tomytec.

 

Not shown:

 

- Tomytec Niigata Kotsu DeWa 51;

- Tomytec Kotoden Mo 62 + Ku 81 + Mo 73;

- M-A JNR DD13-99 (brown loco);

- M-A Ohmi ED14-1 (type);

- Kato WaFu 29500;

- Kato ORo 30 coach.

 

This sums up my N scale Japanese fleet for now. There are a couple of dismembered Kato ToRa floating about which I must make an effort at restoring. Plus the remains of my N NA scale collection, mainly locomotives.

Wow, you guys are full on!  :grin

 

For now, I just have my Tomix N700-8000 Sakura 8 piece set on order. And I might pick up another Micro Ace 813 local.

 

I guess with the ease that this hobby can become addictive. I have tried to limit my interest in what I have lived with here in Fukuoka only..

 

If something in the way of modern Queensland trains come along in Nscale, I may have a look at that. But for now, my main focus is on a layout and scenery for the few I will run...

Wow, I should have read this thread sooner.

 

Here's our Japanese stuff, if memory serves (little Iron Chef joke there :-P ):

 

Kato 115 Niigata (green stripes) - 2 sets

Kato E127 Niigata

Kato E127 Oito Line

Kato 165 Moonlight (green version)

Kato 165 Panorama Alps Express

Kato 455 Green Liner

Kato 500 Shinkansen (7-car set) - Anders's token fast train - doesn't fit in, but oh well

Kato ED75-700 plus several mixed blue-train cars

Tomix 115 Minobu Line (early purchase; nice train, but it doesn't really fit in)

Tomix 583 Kitaguni livery

Tomytec Portram (red)

Tomytec "Tama Train" (not built yet - doesn't fit in, but Anders likes it)

 

Some of those don't fit with the Niigata/Echigo setting I'm trying for, so some might get sold/traded (455, Oito Line E127), while the rest will stay, usually because they're Anders's or he likes them.

 

The only thing I feel like we "need" at this point is a 485 that fits the scene for limited-express/rapid services--JNR livery or something that looks right for the Hokuetsu or Kubikino. But that doesn't mean I'll turn up my nose at good deals on other stuff. :-)

Sorry for bumping a year old thread, but i find this thread very interesting and should be kept alive for us to monitor our trains... You know, sometimes the 'train factory' kept producing so many trains we lost count ourselves!

Here's my humble little roster for Takahashi Town:


Shinkansens:

Kato E3 Akita Shinkansen 6-car set
Kato 700 series 8-car set
Kato E4 MAX 8-car set
Tomixc 300 series 7-car set
Tomix 500 series 8-car set


Limted Express Trains:

Kato Super Hitachi 10-164 7-car set
Tomix former Narita Express NEX E253 92051/ 92052 6-car set


Rapid Trains:

Kato 201 series 10-912 Shikisai old painting 4-car set
Tomix 92369/ 92372/ 8924 E231-1000 Series Tokaido Line 6-car set


Local line Trains:

Tomix 321 series 3-car set
Kato E231-500 Yamanote Line 5-car set


Diesel Trains:

MicroAce A5933 Kiha-40 Fox-Squid-Crab 3-car set


Diesel Loco-pulled Trains:

Tomix 92403 DE10 Nostalgic View Train 5-car set


Trams:

Keifuku mobo 101 'Yuko-go' (Modemo NT88)



Hoping to add the Kiha-40 Hayato-No-Kaze, a local line train prefabaly the E209 Keiyo line or E231 Sobu Line and the E233 Tokaido line with double decker cars  (ADDED!), and perhaps even the N700 and E5 if possible!

*Sayonara 800 series. No not a new set, but it eventually got sold off as it was really out of place*

*Sold off the Kirara and 313 series, as they didn't fit into the region intended for my layout.*

The roster of all my B-trains at the moment. All are 4 cars long:

- Keikyu 1000 Type, ありがとうギャラリー号;

- Keikyu 1000 Type, 京急110年の歴史ギャラリー号;

- Keikyu 2100 Type, Skyblue;

- Keikyu 2100 Type, Standard (M);

- Keisei 3000 Type, 7th edition, 3050 Type (M);

- Keisei AE1 Type, 2nd edition, Skyliner (M);

*(M) =  motorised.

 

If I see more Keisei/Keikyu/etc. trains I will certainly buy them, but due to recent changes in regard to model railroading, I'll also concentrate on collecting a small fleet of a private rail trains. I'll explain more on this in a different thread.
