Not exactly new locomotive or rolling stock, but some after-market stanchions for my EF58s, which were 2nd hand and missing them:

An EF58 with missing stanchions, for those taking notes (they go on either side of the beam just behind the coupler):

Well, after spending some time looking for the 0.5mm holes which should exist, it turns out the particular models I have never had the stanchions in those liveries.

Ah well, guess I'll have to find another EF58...

Here is the amazing new snowplough from Micro Ace. It is a model of the JNR KI908 Mackley Snowplough. It is in the Micro Ace catalogue as number A0326.

First two shots of the snowplough ready to run:





Next a view of the plough unit extended (note the pistons beneath the cab which are now at full reach) and the ploughs set pointing outwards ready to push snow out of the permanent way. Note the coupling bar which is resting on the ballast - this is for connecting to the snow blower unit but can be clipped up if you prefer. 



Two views of the unit from above with the forward roof removed (it simply clips in place with three lugs) to show the intricate pipe work.

Quite a common JNR livery on semifast/express railcars and multiple units, still around in places today if you know where to look.

Meanwhile something more modern from Kato, albeit a class already withdrawn from the original Narita (Airport) Express service:

Another sight-unseen Yahoo Auction purchase at a "would be rude to ignore" price a while back, tragically when I tried running it, the motor sounded like a bag of spanners and I put it away pending further attention. Which was a pity, as despite the model verifiably dating from 1991, it's in excellent condition and utterly unblemished, even all the paperwork and accessory bits present.

Anyway I got it out earlier and don't ask me how but it seems the spanner bag was removed by the fairies and it runs fine, a little growl at lower speeds but nothing abnormal. As an added bonus I noticed it's kitted out with interior lighting  :D

Curses, this modern stuff is getting addictive. A 21st century Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo freight loco from Kato:

I've seen a few of these recently in the west of Tokyo, kind of growing on me.

There's nothing wrong with a bit of EH200. I am rather fond of them (an essential component of my previous layout). Now time to hunt down that rake of Taki.

Indeed, but first more passenger stock, in the form of this olde-style 72/73 series EMU from Tomix:

tomix-92067-72-73-emu by Rail Squid, on Flickr

representing the first generation of post-war new-build EMUs, though some were converted from wartime 63-series EMUs - I suspect this model might represent one of those given the window style. Anyway as far as I can establish the model itself was made around 1996 and is in perfect condition.
