JRF EF66.24 Passing Through Shimizu Station by rlkitterman
JRF EF66.24 Passing Through Shimizu Station
On a rainy morning, JR Freight (JRF) electric locomotive EF66.24 speeds through Shimizu Station with a mostly-empty intermodal train.  Although approaching years old, the EF66 class is still working hard on fast freight trains.
Five Tarped Wagons by rlkitterman
Five Tarped Wagons
As part of my increasing fleet of freight cars, I now have several open wagons of the JNR Tora 35000 and Tora 45000 series, five of which I have covered with tarpaulins.  These can carry different commodities, e.g. barrels, crates, sand, and other things that need to be protected from the elements without being shockproofed, ventilated, or fully enclosed.  Anything else I can carry in the tarped wagons?
3.6.2015 Layout by rlkitterman
3.6.2015 Layout
Today, I modified my N-gauge layout to contain three medium-length sidings: one passing, which can represent a station or yard, and two stub-end, which can be used as team tracks, industries, or car storage.  I am running the freight train clockwise so the stub-end sidings can be backed into by the locomotive, which Railway Modelling the Realistic Way by Iain Rice recommends for those not used to complex shunting maneuvers.
Passenger or Freight? by rlkitterman
Passenger or Freight?
Today, I had a bit of trouble deciding what sort of train Kato JNR 2-6-4 C11 tank engine Black Rei should pull on its first run around the N-gauge layout.  I decided to go for a compromise and coupled the four new goods vans to the branch-line passenger train, making for a single mixed train.
As Friday marked five months living in Shizuoka, I went to the Oigawa Railway, got a few pictures, and then got some more track for my N-gauge layout before running my first passenger train.  February was a good month overall, and I am looking forward to whatever happens in March.
