Afternoon all.

Can I ask if the 2015 tour coach will continue in circulation for the foreseeable future or will a 2016 replacement occur?

Regards

Can I be officially added to either the 2015 list or the 2016 list if it is separate? And if there is to be a replacement, I'd like to drop another plug for an international tour of the 2015 coach )

As the 2015 coach wasn't announced until well into July, I imagine it's more like a tax year ;)

Next on the list is Port Perran, but logistically it might make sense if I sent the coach on eastwards across the Pacific.

By all means send it across the Pacific first then it can come across to Cornall.
That's fine by me.

If no one else will be horribly offended and so long as it really is alright with Martin, then I would be ecstatic to have it arrive here! PM me when you are ready for shipping details, so I can give you my address and set up some way to reimburse you for the cost! XD definitely going to have to do some quick detailing work to get things in order before it arrives. I was wondering what project to start today, now I know! XD

If everyone's fine with that we can do it that way.

Coach has passed through Heathrow and is on its way to Kawasaki (where all international packages to the Tokyo area arrive). It'll probably be another 3~4 days before it arrives here.

Can't wait to see some pictures of it on your layout! Should make quite the change from its usual venues! Take your time and get some good shots of it all over Eitetsumura! All of the detail in your layout creates lots of opportunities for some really top notch scenes :) I am now getting in full gear so I can have my layout ready for the coach's arrival (so certainly not rushing you on my end!).

While it's here I'll try and take it to some railway-related sights as well. Also there are some shops and even bars with rental layouts where you can run your own stock, which might make for some interesting photos.

That would be fantastic! I would love for the coach to go on a little sightseeing tour in Japan :) That's a wonderful idea, as usual!

Here, for example:

That's the cutest thing I've ever seen! I may have to build a teeny tiny little layout into a table now out of jealously....

I should clarify that's some Z gauge track a friend brought along, the bar has a proper N gauge layout too. Note the "N" on the chopstick wrapper, the following characters say "ゲージ", i.e. "gauge". And yes the chopsticks are Shinkansen-shaped.
