    so...why not try and do the same for the 0 series? i dunno would this work consider of the bottom plough part is probs stuck or since the 200 series' nose is a bit stretched while still remaining 0 series' distinctive aircraft/round nose. so why not try and stretch the nose out a bit or make a completely make a new nose and cover the original nose of the 0 series to become a closer look of the 200 series?
    It would hardly work, because the nose cone isn't the only thing that changes from an early-type 0 Series to a 200 Series: there's the undercarriage skirt, the windows are of the small type, carriage ends have aereoynamic deflectors, the bodyshell sides are flatter, the snowplouugh is completely different, the carriage roofs do not have air intakes and so on.

    Furthemore, the 200 Series has several design variations besides the 100 Series-lookalike F formations:

    Earlier sets have a flat 4-section front window, derived from the 0 Series...



    While later sets have more modern round windows.

    My trainz downloads are here and my youtube is here.

    Hi all,

    Glad to hear you all like it.

    @ricardolucasandoval I don't know if it's compitable with Trainz 12. I made this route in T:ANE SP4.

    @butler57 It seems you are missing the Keihin-Tohoku Line E233 Series. It's available on Rizky's website. I can't find any asset called <kuid:501228:100059>.

    Thanks TreinspotterJeffrey - have downloaded the missing train assets.

    Thanks also Jagg for giving me the name of missing asset:
    <kuid:501228:100059> RNP コンクリート壁スプライン (Concrete Wall Spline)
    However, I cannot locate it - it should not affect the route.

    Alex, your content, ED15 & 3500 series are having Site Error. Also, if anyone is up for a Challenge https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/78459419 this is an artwork I've found here. I know K&L Trainz has the cars for that. It's just the Locomotive https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/86500012 (another art of this) that's missing.

    I've taken a quick look, and boy it is a nice route!

    The "subject" choice is also interesting, as you're modelling what's probably the "quietest" part of the Keihin-Tohoku Line. Usually, most choose to model the inner Tokyo section (between Uenoe and Shinagawa) or the section parallel to the Tokaido Main Line (Shinagawa-Yokohama) so this is a nice change.

    I'm looking forward to see it finished!


    Also, as promised, here's my final "refurbsiment" of Keimei's Hanshin Railway stock: the 1000 Series.



    It is already avaible at my website here.

    So, the 1000 Series was introduced in 2006 by Hanshin Railway to operate rapid and express trough-services with the Kintetsu Main Line via the newly-opened Hanshin Namba Line.

    Now, besides the Main Line and the short shuttle-like Mukogawa Line, Hanshin Railway did also own a third line, the Nishi-Osaka Line, wich branched off at Amagasaki and ran to Nishikujo on the Osaka Loop Line.
    This line was initially opened in 1928 as the Denpo Line, and was intended to be part of a planned "Hanshin Second Line" wich would have acted as a parallel bypass for the Main Line, however World War 2 put an end to these plans, wich were eventually abandoned shortly after.

    With extension plans shelved, the Denpo Line was renamed as the "Nishi-Osaka Line" in 1964, with services now shuttling back and forth from Amagasaki to Nishikujo. Thus, until relatively recent, the role of the Nishi-Osaka Line remained a quite secondary one within the Hanshin Railway network.

    Eventually, a beam of hope for the line came in the late 60s, with Kintetsu Railway opening it's Namba Line, an underground extension of the Nara Line, roughly paralleling the subway's Sennichimae Line, carrying Nara Line services further into the Osaka city center, with a newly-built terminus at Namba. As soon as the Kintetsu Namba Line opened in 1970, Hanshin Railway started drawing up plans for an eventual link line that would connect Kintetsu Namba station with Nishikujo Station on the Nishi-Osaka Line, enabling Kintetsu and Hanshin railway to run reciprocal trough-services.
    However, due to financial and land acquisition issues, togheter with Hanshin Railway focusing more on improvments on the vital Main Line, plans for the link line were eventually shelved, sitting in a drawer taking dust until the late 1990s, when they were "re-discovered" as part of Hanshin Railway's reconstruction efforts after the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake, wich took a hefty toll on the railway.

    After being obviously updated, the plans came to fruition in 2001, when construction was started on the new link line, now named as the "Hanshin Namba Line".
    While the existing section of the line, between Amagasaki and Nishikujo remained propery of Hanshin Railway, the "link" section between Nishikujo and Kintetsu-Namba was being built and owned by the "Nishi-Osaka Rapid Railway Co.", a consortium company made up of Hanshin Railway and the Osaka Municipal and Prefectural governments.

    With the construction of the line well underway, Hanshin Railway had to purchase suitable rolling stock for the new line, as the older trains operating on the line (the 5001 anf 5131/5331 Serieses) simply couldn't do.

    Built by Kinki Sharyo (a manufacturer owned by Kintetsu Railway, among other things), the first 6-car set of the new 1000 Series was delivered to Hanshin Railway in October 2006, followed suit by two 2-car sets.
    Extensively based on the earlier 9000 Series, wich was introduced in 1996 to replace all the rolling stock damaged by the earthquake, the new 1000 Series followed Kintetsu Railway's formation practices, and as such was formed in 6 or 2 car sets, wich could be used to form 8 or even 10-car sets (the maximium capacity of both Hanshin and Kintetsu lines).

    The train's bodyshell was made of stainless steel, with "Hanshin Tiger Orange" (officially "Vivace Orange", where "Vivace" is Italian for "Lively") accents on the front and the doors.

    Technically-wise, it used a very up-to date IGBT-VVVF inverter manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric, identical to the one on 9300 Series trains, so to contain maintainance costs. Naturally, the 1000 Series was also equipped with saftey systems compatible with the three different ATS types used by Hanshin, Kintetsu and San'yo Railway as well, enabling the 1000 Series to run trough-services between all three companies.

    Like the first set, the whole fleet was manufactured by Kinki Sharyo and was delivered between October 2006 and 2009, with additional sets being delivered in 2011, bringing the total to 96 cars: thirteen 6-car sets and nine 2-car sets.

    The 1000 Series entered service on the Nishi-Osaka Line on the 5th of October 2007, running alongside the older stock. When the Nishikujo-Kintetsu-Namba link line finally opened on the 20th of March 2009, the Nishi-Osaka Line was officially renamed as the "Hanshin Namba Line", and at the same time, all the older stock still in service on the line was retired and moved to the Hanshin Main Line to replace even older stock.

    To fill the "gap" left by the retirement of the older stock, the 9000 Series fleet was moved from the Hanshin Main Line, refurbished, adapted for trough-services with Kintetsu Railway (wich, among other things, included a new livery based on the 1000 Series' one) and re-introduced in service, thus leaving the 9000 and 1000 Serieses as the only trains operating on the Hanshin Namba Line.

    As of today, the 1000 Series is still in service and is a common sight on both the Hanshin Main Line, the Hanshin Namba Line and Kintetsu's Nara and Namba Lines as well. They do also run some services on the San'yo Railway, but these are far less common, as Hanshin Railway already has plenty of stock compatible with the latter's network.



    Trivia#1

    According to Hansin Railway, the 1000 Series was designated as such because it was the first train designed after the railway's centenary (in 2005).

    Trivia#2

    The 1000 Series was Hanshin Railway's first Kinki Sharyo-made train since the 1001 Series of 1936, altough the company also acted as a design consultant for Hanshin's 8000 Series, buitl between 1984 and 1996 by the railway's Mukogawa Workshops.

    Trivia#3

    The 1000 Series' cost was 130 milion yen per car

    Bonus picture:

    A semi-definitive sketch of the 1000 Series' styling made by Kinki Sharyo in 2005







    ...aaaand with this we can say that #17 on the "list of things i'd like to do in 2021" is DONE!
