I am interested in Japanese cargo trains for a couple of reasons. The first is that I seem to have an over exaggerated interest in anything Japanese. If you’ve been reading this blog, you already know that. The second is the sheer novelty of it. These cargo trains are quite different from the ones we have in North America. The third is that their way of doing things is different. You don’t need to have a bunch of different cars, just different cargo add- ons. This is the same rail car as in previous shots, just with different card put on top. Seems pretty cool to me, but I would love to hear from other N scale railroaders about their opinions.
Most of what I have seen in hobby shops around here are just Japanese bullet trains. Nobody seems to have cargo trains. It is too bad, because they are cool.
