Pete, except for the early 4-4-0 which was 1:24 or slightly larger (more like 1:23 some say), K-28 was a brilliant model indeed, although I enjoyed my LGB/Aster electric K-28 equally much - until it got stolen with the rest of my vast collection in Europe... Best wishes from White Christmas land, Zubi

Simon, thank you! I still have not quite recovered from the burglary: Burglery report - dozens of LGB/Aster locomotives... I guess the collection will show up sooner or later in some country... probably in Europe. Police has only recovered one Aster Harz 2-10-2 locomotive. Pity about the wooden box which is covered in X signs with marker pen (anyone knows how to clean this??), and pity about the original LGB cardboard box (extremely rare but destroyed as the thieves were tearing up every box to see inside) in which I had all the Limited Edition pieces... Fortunately the 2-10-2 inside is not damaged. But lost hope that I will ever see the 100+ pieces collection.... not to mention a collection of priceless narrow gauge books and other collector items I had. Best wishes to you and all the MLS'ers of a healthy happy 2022 - full of trains, 12inch to 1foot and smaller, live steam, diesel or electric! Zubi PS K-28 has been my favourite ever since I saw them at Durango station and I am really happy that Accucraft made their live steam version - this was a breakthrough product for Accucraft - it made a history.

For modelling purposes Gauge 3 is wonderful since it is nearly identical in scale with IIm (1:22.5) Great electric models have been produced in 1:22.5 which will always remain my favourite. Kiss K-36 is the right size, while you need a small crane to lift Accucraft's... I wish Aster had produced more in 1:22.5 live steam when there was time for this... At least they made the C&S Mogul! Happy 2022, Zubi

Hi Trevor, thank you or the note and for the video of this sweet tank engine. Some of the tiny switchers and hard working industrial engines are very cute. Actually, I like them all, large or small. At Mt Fuji Japan Garden Railway Club 5 and 7 inch locos weigh over 100kg, and they are brought there and taken away every time. Cranes @ New Year have a lot of use in Japan;-) Cranes wow New Year tourists | NHK WORLD-JAPAN News, Zubi
