Alerted by suirendoujin-san in his SRBC Meeting thread I was interested in this new steam plant.

From what I have heard, its a limited production run, aimed to boost interest in steam engins here in Japan. Hence, a desk top model like setup. Its available only direct from SAITO.

Nice steam plant. Probably not reversing, since it has 2 single acting cylinders, but perfect for a nice little steam ship.
I'm wondering why Saito still builds their boilers without a water gauge though...

It's here!!

Well, mine arrived on Wednesday and waited till just now to open it up. Why? THE woman of the house has a watchful eye, so gotta be careful when a suspiscious? pacakge arrives at the door, addressed to the big boy of the house.

For 29,800 yen plus 500 yen for S&H, this is a bargain.

One happy modeler in Tokyo.
