If you as a new comer, you thought you like the steam head ah, but you have no knowledge of them,how to start?
(I remember when I was new, do not understand anything, but to see the first steam engine,I just buy it thoughtlessly)

Whether it is too complicated , and you do not know how to start ? I would recommend a newcomer to buy a reasonable price of the entry car around HKD 300-600 price is reasonable, as a start for your new hobby. Watching the connecting rod, cultivate the interest of the steam engine, and so to  deep understanding, and then step forward to the special and rare models…

Starting from the beginning to buy :

Newer models are easier to get!

(the most recent production of KATO new track C59 (doing well,relative easy to get as it is relatively new model…  / MicroAce)

Depends on what  is your budget…

If budget is not too much , just buy MicroAce models (MA almost have all models of stemlocomotives )

Price from high to low:

MicroAce = KATO old model

Note that the above price is only ordinary models, special rare models unconventional price are not comparable, not in this article entry discussion range

Classic models:

Japanese King of SL and later

C57 has the title of a lady, is the queen of the steam engine

2008-1 Tomix C57-1   2007-1 C57-180

D51: the king of the Japanese steam-locomotive, deserved, the Japanese steam engine of the highest usage
models: 2016-1 D51 498  D51 498東方快車塗裝

Bigboy: the largest steam engine, the man’s romance! Although the unit price is not cheap, but very typical loco.

3 main brands of steam engine features:

Microace:

Most variety  models, the most refined car shell, including a lot of special models (other brands will not be out
) (E10,9800, deformation car, car shell the most exquisite, but the motor exposed, a lot of car problems, power is also quite easy to fault …. is love and hate …)

Kato:

New regulations built-in motor, that is, a cab, you can put the driver into, more like a real

(Product number :2014 after the new regulation models!

(To note: there are old and new kato steam loco models, old motor exposed, the proportion of some problems, than the real car, no flywheel)

Tomix:

If you want the finest ones, just choose  Tomix HG series! (Model: c57 180 / c61 20 / c57 1 / c57 135 / C61)

But the unit price is very high, more than 10,000 yen !

Feeling: wrote some N rail entry, this time finally wrote back to the old line, the steam engine entry. Hope to have more newcomers interested in the steam engine , enlarging the N-scale steam circle!

世界工藝 お召列車一号編成

這是我第一套銅車!全列都是以金屬製作。

全列列車非常重,非一般蒸汽車頭能夠拉得動…..只能以Kato的C62拉動,可能要以最大力的EH﹣800電力車頭可以拉得動。

TOMIX SLばんえつ物語 オコジ換KATO密連鉤方法

今天我們為 TOMIX 12系客車 SLばんえつ物語再加工。

原本車卡附普通方形鉤,像真度不夠。

  換了Kato的密連鉤,但Tomix的換鉤方法與Kato的不同。

拆下Tomix的轉向架,可以看到鐵片。

鐵片靠左右卡在轉向架上,只要吧螺絲刀按/卡住左右其中一邊,再在下方挑起,鐵片便可以挑出。
換走普通方鉤。
由於位置不夠放下Kato的密連鉤,要先刀削下少許鉤的2邊,再加超能膠,黏合;不能以原本Kato的密連鉤結合的方式,才夠位卡進車勾座。
