I'm a little confused by the numbering on the silver sign he is standing behind though. Don't seem to be consistent in both pics as dates, for instance, if they show day, month and year from left to right. :-\ :hmmm:


Format is year-month-day from left to right. This year is Heisei 30, last year was Heisei 29 and next year will be Heisei 31, but only until the end of April, which is when the Emperor will be clocking out for the last time for a long-overdue retirement. Unfortunately for anyone in the calendar/diary business, they're not revealing the name of the new era until just before then.

Sometimes this forum is even better than QI. :D I really like QI - the Stephen Fry era. :beers:

Looking at the date of the last post, I've been slacking somewhat, it would seem. To make up for things, here's a 6-car MicroAce Chuo Line 101 series acquired for loose change:



The model itself must be 15 or so years old and is the earlier MicroAce style with no flywheel so is a bit growly, but otherwise runs fine. Kato do a more recent, nicer model, but this one will make a nice restoration/detailing project.
