The C12 arrived. The diorama isn't finished - needs a backdrop and tidying up.

Another one for my collection of brown 1500v DC locos:

An EH10 from MicroAce, this class was the first post-war "modern" dedicated freight locomotive design, actually two Bo-Bos permanently coupled with a cab at either end, built from 1954.. Purchased very cheap as a non-runner, turned out it is actually two motorised locos, one of which wasn't working, and a right pain to disassemble. Not 100% sure what the problem was, I suspect one or both of the brushes were slightly loose. After much cursing to reassemble it (stupidly I also managed to dismantle one of the custom couplers, which are held together by a ca. 0.1mm thick sprung wire which needs to loop over a ca. 1mm protuberance, then the whole assembly needs to be eased into place so that one part hooks into the chassis), it works, albeit a noisy runner, and really needs both sections wiring together.

Excellent! Iím rather partial to twin-box electrics. I used to collect them in HO but eventually they were sold off as part of the move to N.

Iíve been looking forward to this little lot percolating through customs!  A Kato EF66-100  electric (my favourite Japanese loco by far) and a couple of Tomix KOKI 107 intermodal wagons, with working tail lights 8)

Now to fit the detail partsÖ

I prefer the original 0 series myself, though they're now almost all withdrawn.

Meanwhile something a little older and originally from the US.

Not sure, it's by "World Kogei" and is probably a couple of decades old (but in beautiful condition). There's a similar model here, though out of stock. Retail price is a bit eye-watering, this one was acquired via an auction site at an "it would be rude to refuse" price  :beers:

Kato also do a version: http://www.katomodels.com/n/ed19/

Did you know English Electric not only made diseasels but also actual electric locomotives?

Like this ED17?



Freakily, a few days after acquiring it at bargain-basement auction price, I took the Squidlet (aged almost 3) to the Japanese Railway museum (the equivalent of the NRM in York) and there what did I find?

I've got one of those on my US outline layout, along with the similar looking C-C variant (ED18), based on the fact that similar EE locos were purchased by Montreal Harbours Board in the mid 1920's, later passing to CN, where they remained in service until the mid 1990's!!

A pair are seen here at Val Royal station in March 1991. One of the passenger cars on this train was a clerestory roofed one built in 1914....



Unfortunately, none of the EE ones were preserved, though several of the older GE built ones (circa 1913) ended up with various North American museums.

Another Japanese intermodal wagon arrived today, a KOKI 106 by Tomix - part number 8723.  I can't read Japanese, but the containers seem to be used for the bulk shipping of cats :no:




Also, although not strictly rolling stock, some wee Kato folk to sit inside rolling stock.  Probably not quite the shilling for my 1960s BR fleet, but top yen for my Japanese collection :thumbsup:

'Tis the brand of a major logistics/delivery company called "Yamato" who use a black cat carrying a kitten as their logo (and by whom a package containing model railway goods was literally just delivered).

Cats are usually sent through the normal postal network in special padded bags lined with catnip.

Yup, I think the mobile phones would look a bit out of place ;)

My thoughts exactly, although I did think the odd one passed off as "man contemplating last ciggie in pack" might just work ;)

Incidentally, whilst I've got packs of "People With Cellphones (Standing)" and  "People With Cellphones (Sitting)" from Kato, I've looked in vain for "People With Cellphones (Strange Poses When Trying To Get A Signal)" :confused1:
