Information edit: Sakatsu Gallery
The era is from the end of the Pacific War to the confusion after the war. The locomotive depot is for private railway type steamers, but petrol cars were introduced during the Showa recession.
However, gasoline became unobtainable in the war time, and it is a setting of the depot of the car which has been converted into the substitute fuel car.
The vaults have become ragged and tilted due to lack of care.
The rickety track is made of No. 70 flexible steel and is bent every 120mm to give the appearance of being bent out of joint.
The roof of the depot is painted in Pacific War camouflage, with 1mm holes pockmarked by air raid gunfire.
The above is from this work "Warped Locomotive Depot" which appeared in RM MODELS No.213. A related article about a diesel locomotive equipped with a charcoal gas kiln appeared in the same issue, No. 211.
This time we have included two diesel locomotives with the rare charcoal gas kiln, painted with Nishimura's painterly weathering paintwork, so that you can enjoy a more lively scene.
