More modern protoype (ED75, in production 1963 ~ 1976), older model (1979, from an obscure company called Eidai who went bankrupt after a year):

For a model from 1979 it's pretty damn good, probably why the company went bankrupt, moreover is in as-new condition, motor a trifle noisy but it only cost the local equivalent of peanuts.

Hello! A little bit of my JapaNscale  :) Not clearly "latest" for today - arrived me at spring, "when sakura was blooming" (apple tree in real  :D) and summer - but new for my first post on this tread.
New amazing C12 and C50 from Kato turn my view to the steam era of 1930-50's Japan. Having not yet the  layout for use as background, shooted them with rolling stock on open air.
Number plates on locos still not mounted as I want to research wich ones will be suitable for locos from one line and branches, working side by side. As I wait soon more steamers - 9600 and D51, this need some time :)

Rod Hull dropped by and left me a couple of EMUs... on the left a Microace 183 series, on the right a Kato E351 series, both of which have worked the Azusa express service running west from Tokyo. The JNR era 183 series is long retired from this service (there might be some still knocking about on special services), the more modern E351 dates from the early 90s (both prototype and model) and has a tilting mechanism (reproduced in the model) for higher speeds on the mountain routes it runs on; it too is long in the tooth and scheduled for replacement in the next year or rwo.

Bwahaha, I just noticed that the 183 series (the blue-ish train on the left) has a price sticker on the box from the retailer with an addtional "1" to the left of the price I paid, I suspect they made a mistake when typing in the price. I did wonder as it's evidently a very recent model, I was expecting something much older, anyway it's like getting a 150 quid train for 50 quid...  :beers:

That's quite a collection. Certainly a  man after my own heart; I noticed that I have exactly the same models in the right-hand pile!  :goggleeyes:

Unfortunately GM do take forever with orders. Most of my J-trains orders come from HobbySearch or Plaza Japan. Alternatively Traintrax are good,  as are Wellington Models.

The Holland Village Express unit is a popular visitor to Kanjiyama. It is a nice blend of my interest in Japanese trains,  and Dutch trains (Mrs Dreyfus' family are from Holland).

I have limited my Bullets to JR Central,  but a couple of JR East sets have cropped up since I travelled between Nagano and Tokyo a couple of years ago.

Just ordered a very rare 500 series

Type 500 Eva Shinkansen
2015 marked the 40th anniversary of Sanyo Shinkansen's completion inauguration, as well as the 20th anniversary of the start of the Evangelion TV series.

Tomix E1 Shinkansen:

Tomix E1 Shinkansen by Rail Squid, on Flickr

part of a trainset pack from 1995/1996, excellent condition except one the custom coupling on one of the power car bogies was broken. Fortunately replacements are available, unfortunately they're for a newer version and don't quite fit, fortunately I was able to hack bits off the new one onto the old one.

The E1 Shinkansen itself is no longer with us, having been in service from 1994 to 2012.

I am a Squid of few principles, but one of them is to only acquire Shinkansen units which have been retired, so by default the liveries are on the calmer side. This was quite a good deal, for something like 25-30 GBP I got a train in full working order (apart from the coupling - I reckon it broke not so long after the set was bought, and it got Put Away for a decade or two), some track which has since come in handy, an old-style Tomix controller which is just right for my workbench, and another rerailer to add to my collection.
