My Rokuhan starter set just arrived and I'm very happy with it, my first train set since playing with my dad's old one as a child. I went for the DD51 starter set and a few extras, so far I'm very impressed with the quality of it. I have found it hard to find much in the way of reviews etc. so hopefully some of this information can help someone in future. My fledgling layout with a couple of turnouts, I just really built this from what I have, no planning. I will start planning something a bit more interesting and hopefully buy new track next month and have a good bit more surface area! My turnouts are from the Siding set that Rokuhan make which includes both a left and right turnout plus some extra track. The locomotive that comes with the set is a DD51 1000 A Cold district type (Renewed design), in Japan Freight Railway Company (JRF) livery. It's a single shaft motor with directional running lights and the build quality is impressive, reassuringly weighty and solid. It seems to perform well at slow speeds but can also go surprisingly fast! There is one small thing that is annoying me, but it's possible I'm just doing something wrong. The middle truck is free floating and on a spring, I found it quite hard to set this on the rails even using the re-railer that was included. It will also hop off the rails sometimes, although this doesn't seem to slow the loco down, I suspect maybe it's because I am going through the turnouts too fast? You also get two Koki 106 blue freight cars, with 6x 20ft containers (2x of each design), the detail on these and the containers is again very good; I also got a set of two Taki1000 Tank cars in Japan Oil Transportation Co. livery, mainly because I really liked the color, again, very nice details; The rails are very easy to set up and take down, with the built in road bed it makes it very easy to connect them. You don't need a specific power connector set of rail as all the straight pieces have a small piece that can be temporarily removed to allow the power to connect. The Set comes with the RC02 controller, I had to get a separate AC adapter and a US to UK plug converter but you can also run it on batteries. It works fine and I like the fact that if I buy turnout switches they can be "snapped on" to the side, in future I will probably upgrade to the RC03 controller which has two turnout switches built in, but for now the RC02 is more than enough for my needs. I'm really looking forward to learning more about the hobby and designing a fun layout, my next purchases will be more track and rolling stock, most likely all Rokuhan. I will probably hold off on another Loco for awhile, I can't really run more than one at the minute anyway so I@d rather ensure that my layout gives me lots of interesting options to play with first. I've seen a lot of great layouts and modelling work on these forums and I hope to one day have something just as good to share with you all, but first, baby steps!
