November 2023 Kato train news from Train Trax UK

Although I try to send an update email every two weeks, sometimes it doesn't quite work out. This time I was away for a few days with family and ran out of time before I went.

On the way back from my break I managed a quick visit to the Pendon Museum in Oxfordshire, and decided to share with you the snapshot above. The museum is well worth a visit and I was left reflecting what a broad hobby Railway Modelling can be. There's the quick and easy approach that Kato Unitrack offers or the slow but  satisfying approach from the amazingly talented scratchbuilders that have produced Pendon. Personally I'm glad there's room for both within the hobby.

A wide range of modelling will be on display at the Manchester Show this December 9th/10th. I'm pleased to announce that Train Trax will have a large stand full of Kato Unitrack in N and HO gauges, plus a variety of trains, buildings and accessories in N.  It will be possible shortly to order for collection at the show. You can also drop me an email if there is something in particular you want to see.

Last week saw the usual monthly announcements from Kato Japan of what's comign in the future. There's some useful road vehicles as well as a Japanese C12 Steam loco. The 283 and 287 series are ideal trains for a bit of Japanese flavour - especially with that Panda face! See below for more details.

Whilst I was away, Jonathan and Peter took in the latest KatoUSA arrivals - EMD SD70ACe in a varirty of liveries, all DCC fitted; plus the re-run of the UP FEF-3 '844' Steam Loco.  Check out the 'Just Arrived' page to keep up.

Some stocks are a little low at the moment - there's been a customs hold up in Japan which we hope to be resolved shortly. Thanks for your patience.

Best wishes,

Ian Miller
