What make is it ?

Looks a bit "cheap" with the shiny finish and the light grey (?) motion.

Best regards,


Joe

They are from MicroAce of Japan. All originated at the turn of the century.

They never intended to cost an arm or a leg, as per most Japanese model train manufacturer. ::)

A little bit of light weathering would tone them down and enhance the details more. Otherwise very nice

I'd never heard of these before. Looked 'em up on Wikipedia.

151 of them have been preserved!  :goggleeyes:

Had no idea the Japanese were such train nuts!

Cheers, NeMo

In Japan, people treat Railway (and it's related matter) more than just a form of transport, they treat it as if it is a...............religion(?). Some phenomenon I don't quite understand.

Every good park or civic square here has its own static steam locomotive, it seems... However there doesn't seem to be anything like the active preservation scene there is in the UK

I suppose because people, particularly in urban areas, are much more likely to be occasional or regular train users than in other countries.
