Recommended Posts

Hi,

Not especially a japanese locomotive, but the Swiss Re 460 with Japan Adwert on it is arriver by me.

I like this one very much as well! I have the N Gauge version on Pre-order

Between work and getting ready for the steam tram, I haven't done much actual modelling in the last few weeks. But I did manage to score one of these during the week, for a very good price:

The question is - do I rework it as a C57 or leave it as a Taiwanese engine?

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

Finally got a HO EF64-1000 in the awesome renewal paint.   Wish I had the money for another on of these to double head my Koki train. ;)

When I got home from work this evening there were two parcels waiting for me. These are what was inside them:

The steam loco is a Taiwan Railway Administration CT270, their version of the well-known JNR C57. The model is branded as being produced by Haskell/Kairyu, but is otherwise identical with the Tenshodo models of the C55 and C57 that were made a few years ago. I wonder what the relationship is between the three companies?

Anyway, the model itself is very nicely detailed and finished, with all of the specific TRA features accurately represented. I'm still undecided whether to rework it into a C57 or leave it alone. Modelling JNR in 1/80th scale is a niche pursuit, but modelling Taiwan is as obscure as it gets, I reckon! :)

The electric car is the newly-released Kato Kumoha 12. Like all of my other 1/80th scale Kato models it's got lovely fine detail and an equally fine finish. The only quibble I have is that if you want add-on details such as handrails, brake hoses, MU jumper cables, etc you have to buy a separate detail pack.

I don't know yet how either of these models run, but the boy and I are off to the club tomorrow night, so I'll report back soon.

Cheers,

Mark.

My pre order from MTP arrived today. The Kato DE10 and Hoki are beautiful.

Nice!  I have a half dozen HoKis waiting for the rest of my preorder to come in at Nariichi's.

Two more additions to the electric fleet from Tenshodo arrived yesterday, an EF10 loco and a 4-car series 103 EMU.

Very nice, with or without sound?  I have the same one for my daughter and wished I would've gotten the one with sound as it wasn't that much more.  Enjoy!

Without, sadly. I didn't know there was a version WITH sound. Kids love the eyes though, but are wishing for smoke haha
