Interesting . . . a drawbar instead of a coupler?

BTW, @tom mann : why isn't this a Best Of thread?

I know this thread has been done for a while, but a new photo came my way last night.

My friend in Japan, named Ryoichi Fukushima, was at a train show this week in Japan.

And he said he found one of the stock Kumata 2000 black EP-2s on display.

He excitedly took several photos and sent them to me.

So I wanted to post these with this thread.  They are the only known photos I've ever seen of the black units. (and trust me, I've spent hours and hours searching the web).

Remember, there are only about 15 of these out there.  And we don't know of any that have left Japan.
Ryoichi has been looking for one of these for me for well over a year.
He knew a guy who had two, but he sold them... so no photos.

So thanks again Ryoichi.
Much appreciated.

I actually think I can manage this paint scheme.

Man, those things are designed high-boyish.

It's amazing what a difference it made lowering them and adding underframes.
