Does anyone know if the recent Orange/Red 2019 rereleases have this logo too?

 

 

My orange does not have the logo.

Yup, that works great! It's a Digitrax DN163K0a with the lights cut to fit, pretty much what I expected to see in there. Thank you again!

 

Would have been nice if it was a TCS 🙂 but the Digitrax is what I'd expect as well.

Thanks- Yeah, it appears that Kato Osaka store's done some customs to modify the logos there on the Orange (maybe the red too?), but otherwise normal releases are the same as the last printing (which i what i bought in september)

I *think* TCS makes a decoder that fits it without having to modify the light stalks, I seem to remember that from when I was looking for a decoder for my Seven Stars.

They both make various light arrangement versions, mostly documented to what North American stock.

Yeah they have lots of different versions of the decoder with different light configs.   I bought a bunch cheap from a store going out and also using some eBay bonuses and have used a bunch.

Tomix Kiha 82 set plus one trailer. As it ran in Kyushu on the Hisatsu Line, it was one of those occasions when the wallet won.

Got the green one but it's the same number as the maple colored one.  Love these little guys.  Had the orange one before and sold it and thank goodness they were re-released.

The green is like a promotional wrap, that's why it's the same number.

Just need a purple one for all the original Starburst flavours. 
 

I must admit, I’m not really into Kansai trains but these Eizan electrics look very nice.

Here, Bill, now you don't have to tear yours apart to check it the mechanism:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/bandmbill/

 

The coreless motor is very long, with a flywheel on the single-ended shaft. A chain of gears powers the second axle. Kato can't use this design to make a similar new replacement for their 4-axle bogie Pocket Line power unit.

 

I hope the axles can "rock" a bit to help get better electrical contact on slightly uneven rails or frogs. Most previous 4-wheel chassis hold the axles in place too stiffly to let this happen.

Cool it looks like more metal in there so hopefully better momentum along with the flywheel to get them thru the uneven track bits.

 

i assume this will take over the plain mechs here? If so I wonder if same part number or new ones.

Just a couple of stuff from Zen Market...

 

20191114_200241.thumb.jpg.babce1331aedb51784f72fb5007a66c7.jpg

 

I just LOVED how Zen took so much care to individually wrapped each item in plastic cling and then bubbled wrapped!!

 

20191114_200253.thumb.jpg.2b2412629adf38f0d1e59dc130b0eafd.jpg

 

First up, one Kintetsu commuter train that I had been searching a while for... the 5200 series!

Love the invertor logo on the side!

 

Next a Kiha-47 Niigata colour for cheap... bought this for a really interesting 'restoration' project ~  🙂

And every purchase is NOT complete without some buses for me ~

As they say, gotta catch them all!  😛

Arrived today:

Eizan Type 900 Green Maple color

50 N gauge layouts book

 

I do really like the fact that special color of the 900 has the 90th anniversary logo-

Does anyone know if the recent Orange/Red 2019 rereleases have this logo too?

I haven't done any posting for ages. After much waiting long time, I've ordered MicroAce EF 58-61 to increase my Imperial fleet. Also ordered NYK 2210 (20ft containers) as well.


https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10467409/30/2

My EF58-61 has arrived. Yippee

Now I have to attached the flags to the locomotive.
There was small bit a tape from that has markings from 3M with 4 very small dots, that is the same size of the imperial golden seal, which might be very difficult to handle, even with tweezers.
Question to the forum: what would be the best solution to keep the flags on permanently, as I have a feeling if I use the small adhesive dots, the flag will dislodge itself as soon I put the locomotive back in it's box.
