Bus Video - Super - 09-22-2021

Very cool Bus video.






RE: Bus Video - Off The Rails - 09-22-2021

I like this person’s stuff! I presume all or most of these are customs and from I can see, the modeling work is very well done.


RE: Bus Video - Super - 09-22-2021

I would agree OTR...but my mind is telling me that this one is a real oldie.

BTW: any plans on an Xmas Layout this year?

These busses are really cool!

We had this bus (and maybe more) in Vio's thread:

Yellow Highway Bus (1964? 1965? 1966?)

By the way, Super, in this "bus" video I believe I can see a beautiful tram, too!


RE: Bus Video - Super - 09-22-2021

Something I just noticed about that Tram Mr No is that it has a swapped out chassis with the newly released 'Deliver the Sushi' Set and utilizing the forward and reverse rails.


RE: Bus Video - Mister No - 09-23-2021

You're right, Super! It also has blue and green reverse tracks at the beginning and the end of the tram track! 

And this kind of train (single car unit) is the best for using this system. It's a pity they sell it only with the whole sushi set. They could release just a small train (single car tram or train) with appropriate chassis and these two tracks, like they did with Maglev, and it's two speed-up and slow-down rails. :)


RE: Bus Video - Super - 09-23-2021

I am going to guess that we will see another set by Plarail with the special chassis and track pieces sometime in the future. They already have the plans and machinery to make them so why not?  I would like to see a set with a Diesel shunter with this new chassis and possibly an Auto Switching rail or two along with two sets of the reversing tracks. :D


RE: Bus Video - Mister No - 09-23-2021

As my granny used to say, 'From your lips to God's ears', Super! :D

I hope they'll make it. A set like that could be really nice and useful. Little tram or shunter going back and forth. It would be such a waste to release those tracks in one very specific set only ..

I have some ideas too: Bill and Ben at Brendam docks, Mavis and Salty at the Quarries, Red and Blue Tokyo Sakura Trams on the Arakawa Line, Hakone Tozan railcar on the Mountain Line with switchback... These two little special rails, in combination with the auto-switch, would be great for recreation of a mountain line that uses a switchback-system! :)


RE: Bus Video - Super - 09-23-2021

Or how about just selling the two track pieces separately as a accessory pack so those who do have the chassis could make some fun action parts to their Layouts especially if they have more than one chassis.

Possibly a Christmas layout this year but what form it takes remains to be seen. I have a number of scenery elements I would like to use if it happens.


RE: Bus Video - Super - 09-23-2021

I am hoping it happens OTR and hope you share with us here. [Image: my-fingers-are-crossed-smiley-emoticon.gif]

Just another video with the reversing tracks and a three car train in action:




And... the train looks a bit weird and crooked when running backwards. Of course. So the diesel shunters (and one-car trains and trams :D ) would be surely the best option!  :angel:


RE: Bus Video - Super - 09-25-2021

Exactly. Plus, another way to use this is with a Diesel Shunter and put a Plarail Shed over the switch tracks so the Diesel will enter the shed, reverse and exit the shed...that would be cool but I agree that using it on multiple cars would move them askew unless they have a coupling system like used with the plate cars in the set.


RE: Bus Video - Mister No - 09-25-2021

This shed idea is great! :)

For the trams and single unit commuter trains, a small station can be used: The train comes to the station, and goes back.

Maybe using just one wagon/trailer with that special coupler (like on the trains with powered tenders) would be OK.
