What did you order or the post deliver? (N Gauge)

Recommended Posts

NGT6 1315

I would say tomorow. Customs usually take a whole day to be cleared.

 

 

Package cleared customs early this morning. I would also think it'll arrive here tomorrow.

Finally! I finally received the B-Train Shorty for my Gfriend. I took some pictures of the kit, it really looks easy. I'm going to help her build it tomorow... or I hope. If not, I will have to wait until the 14th of July when she comes back from Paris.

 

And I'm still wainting for:

- Kato Diesel Locomotive DD51, Cargo Renewal Livery (blue)

- Kato Covered Wagon WAMU 380000, 2 Cars Set

- Kato Covered Wagon WAFU 2950, with working Tail Lights

- Greemax 2 storey Merchant House Kit

- Kato Knuckle Coupler 11-702

- Greenmax, Keihin Electric Express Railway Series 1500 (Add-On 4-Car Kit)

 

I got completely over my head this month...  :laugh:

Oh, I'm also waiting on the last 11 issues of this little fella: http://www.de-club.net/jkc/

 

(In short, it's a building kit of a C62 in 1/24 scale. Whole thing is brass and iron. Each week a new box comes out with various parts and a magazine with tons of prototype info on Japanese steam engines and routes.)

 

http://www.de-club.net/jkc/issue.php?pos=0&Issue=001 is a list of all the issues (and an image of the parts each issue contains), starting at number 1 =)

Yeah, they're definitely a benefit to mental health.

 

Of course, you have to be careful to avoid an overdose.

Actually a friend was on some sort of disability and they wanted him to do some sort of art/hobby therapy and he was able to get them to put money towards doing a home layout to do this. i was amazed that they would do something like that, but it has been very good for him over the last couple of years, keeping him active and very engaged in working on the layout even with some nasty physical impairments. he also did some painting classes and turns out to have enough of a talent to maybe even sell some of it and also really enjoying it!

 

cheers

hahaha yea its like christmas is early for me!  although i should probably just order the 231 myself and have him search for a rarer prototype.

 

he lives all alone in tokyo so he likes to go out on "missions" to look for trains i guess.  i send him all the videos i shoot of my layout too.

It great that Grandpa encourages you with your hobby and in return you show him in your video what you've done with his gifts.

And at the end, is it going to be the Kato or the Tomix version?

He thinks Tomix is the "lexus" of model trains.

Got my E531 today. However, the two car set which was supposed to have been included was missing, but I already contacted the seller (Plaza Japan :grin ) and was told they had noticed their error and would ship it out tomorrow.

 

My E217 has now touched down on German soil as well and is currently being processed at the airport :cool: . The EH200 I also ordered should be getting on its way very soon, too.

The EH200 is a cool engine and very impressive  :grin:cool:

 

Is your E217 the Tokaido version? They are no great lookers in my opinion, but the livery certainly helps improve this...

 

Hopefully your customs will process a little quicker that UK - took them over a week for an EF64 I got recently... :cussing:

Guys, I admit I fell for it again :cheesy . Now I'm waiting for a 10 car Tokaido E217 as well. I know this one isn't operating north of Tokyo, but it just seemed to beg, "buy me!" Know the feeling? :grin

 

Now I'll need to get the five car set as well, eventually. Or do the E217s on the Tokaido line also operate as ten car units only?

Now I have actually read your post above....welcome to the happy E217 owners club... :grin

 

 

I have today also ordered a Kato DE10.....in H0!

True, but the same could be said about almost all other Japanese motive power, no? :grin

Oh, I actually quite like the rounded shape of the cab ends, if that was the point you were referring to. I was a little torn between the Yokosuka-Sobu and the Tokaido one, but as I already got a Japanese EMU with blue trim I thought the Tokaido variant would be a nice change.

 

Hopefully your customs will process a little quicker that UK - took them over a week for an EF64 I got recently... :cussing:

 

The E531 arrived on the 28th and was transferred from the airport customs office to the local office within another day. Received the pickup notification today and immediately went to collect the package.

Will do. It'll sure be interesting to have a full 15 car set in front of me :grin .

 

And just to round it all off, I am finding myself looking at an E3 or the 922-10 Dr. Yellow set with increasing frequency. Should I be worried? :lipssealed:

you shouldnt be worried, but your bank account might take a hit!

 

so you got a 15 car e531 AND a 15 car e217?  COOL, make sure to post them up.  my e531 and e217 are only 8 car sets.  Going for the full 15 is some hardcore wallet damage!

There is a lottery here in Germany where you can win a lifelong pension of sorts. The actual amount of money per month depends on your age and gender, but if I understand the rules correctly it is never below 7,500 EUR :lipssealed: . Gee, just think about all the trains I could buy with that money!

No, I only got the 10 car E217 at this time as HWJ did not stock the 5 car one. I'll keep looking for that one, though. But as I said before, I will have to consider the length of those units and therefore where I could put them on display in the future :grin .
