Yoshiaki Nishimura Pre-painted 1/87 Scale (HO Narrow 9mm, HOn2 1/2)

Work size: approx. 45cm (W) x 25cm (D) x 80cm (H)
Gauge (width between tracks): 9mm (due to the very small radius, only a limited number of cars can be run)

Note: The lamp contains glass parts and is therefore unsuitable for transport.
We recommend that you hand over the lamp in person at our shop (Sugamo).

The car shown in the photo is an assembled and painted "Porter Kamenoko" made by Jikousha. Powered. Weathered) is included.
There is a feeder line coming out of a small air intake on the side of the ramp, so you can connect a power pack separately to run the car.

In order to be able to return the lamp to its original state, the track is only glued to the lamp's oil pot with a timber trestle-style base. If you try to remove it, it will come off easily.
The lamp can be filled with paraffin and actually lit, but the heat can ruin the model for a long time and you should be very careful about fire and burns.

The lamp was made of brass sheet metal, 45cm in diameter, about the size of a drum. There is no reflector, but nothing is broken, there is a glass casing inside and it lights properly.
The inside is completely black with soot. The inside is black with soot, there are dents and scratches here and there, it looks like it has been used for a long time. However, there is something strange about the roasted nameplate on the chimney.
Locomotive Bright, Number 323, Newcastle England, 1931". This is fishy and disreputable.
The major British railways had their own factories where they manufactured locomotives and their equipment, and the lamps on them would have been engraved with the name of the railway, such as GW or LMS.
In the first place, British locomotives did not have headlamps, but signalling lights, which were small and square.

Mr Nishimura has acquired an antique paraffin lamp, which is suspected to be a replica of the original.
It may not have the value of a pure original, but it's still worth no less than 100,000 yen, and he's used it to create a playful, ultra-compact circular layout piece.
