ONE train – FIVE different colours !

Posted by redracer on July 31, 2011

Japan is well know for it’s variety of colourful trains, but in this case I think they have even outdone themselves …

In 1988, JR Kyushu took delivery of a sole Kiha183-1000 4 car diesel set to be used on ‘Joyful Train’ service. Because of the original Dutch influence in the Nagasaki area, it was called the ‘Holland Village Express’, and painted in a red/white/blue livery.

In 1992, the train was repainted an overall pale green colour with gold striping & lettering and named ‘Yufuin no Mori’.

When the KiHa72 ‘New Yufuin no Mori’ version was delivered in 1999, the  KiHa183-1000 was returned to the original red/white/blue livery, but this time named ‘Seibold’.

2004 saw the next change of colour and name – this time it was painted in an overall maroon color with gold lettering and named ‘Yufu DX’ (Yufu Deluxe).

In 2008 the name was kept the same, but the colour this time was an overall bright yellow with green lettering !

Model manufacturer ‘MicroAce’ has released all of these variations – the ‘Holland Village Express’ (A8246) & maroon ‘Yufu Dx’ (A8259) in July 2005, the ‘Yufuin no Mori’ (A8247) in October 2006 and the ‘Seibold’ (A8248) & yellow ‘Yufu DX’ (A8261) in November 2010 (with a 5% price increase). So technically even if you bought all of these models, you could never run more than one of them at the same time :-)

In 2011 there is to be another change – this time being black & white with cartoon characters on it !!!! More info when I get pictures ….

Here are the pictures of the models (the ‘Yufuin no Mori’ looks different to the others only because it is placed the otherway round in the case) …

    curso de dermatologia Aplicação prática de dezenas (estimulação elétrica nervosa transcutânea)

    Dor crônica e dores de músculos de desativação é
    uma das razões mais comuns por que a maioria das pessoas procuram terapia física.

    Embora a história da fisioterapia é tão antiga quanto a quase 140 anos, nas últimas décadas um monte de máquinas e
    dispositivos são também construídos sobre os princípios da
    fisioterapia e técnicas que são de grande ajuda na gestão de sintomas de dor
    crônica no escritório e em casa as configurações com base.

    TENS (estimulação elétrica nervosa transcutânea) é talvez uma
    das mais eficazes técnicas fisioterapia hoje utilizada em medicina alternativa.

    DEZENAS refere-se à passagem de correntes elétricas em uma freqüência pré-determinada transcutânea através de nervos periféricos.

    Uma corrente de um determinado comprimento de onda e intensidade é
    entregue através de eletrodos que são ligados à pele. A freqüência ou a intensidade
    pode ser controlada manualmente.

    DEZENAS são classificadas como convencionais dezenas e dezenas de baixa frequência com
    base a frequência utilizada no procedimento. Terapia convencional utiliza
    uma atual freqüência de 50Hz ou acima; Considerando que em dezenas de baixa frequência,
    é utilizada uma menor freqüência (menos de 10Hz).
    Freqüências diferentes têm efeitos diferentes sobre a percepção fisiológica da dor pela modulação da
    sinalização através de fibras nervosas elétrica
    do nervo.

    O princípio de funcionamento lida com excitação dos nervos periféricos,
    na tentativa de suprimir os nervos que levam os sinais de dor ao cérebro.

    Isto pode ser conseguido se o dispositivo estimula as fibras nervosas com maior freqüência em comparação com as fibras nervosas de
    dor.

    Estimulação elétrica nervosa transcutânea é amplamente utilizada na gestão da dor aguda em casa ou em
    um ambiente clínico. O uso preferencial é no parto.
    Embora não muito eficaz, dezenas é uma das técnicas de gestão de dor preferencial utilizadas durante as fases posteriores do trabalho e as
    mulheres que preferem dar parto vaginal sem anestesia
    podem obter benefícios de dezenas.
    DEZENAS é um dos métodos mais seguros e mais livre
    de risco disponíveis hoje para tratar a dor crônica da neuropatia
    diabética e lesões músculo-esqueléticos refratários versus analgésicos
    comuns. DEZENAS é também utilizado na gestão
    da dor de osteoartrite por fisioterapeutas.

    DEZENAS é muito eficaz na gestão da dor aguda, logo após grandes cirurgias e
    acidentes, reduzir a dose de morfina ou outros
    analgésicos prescrição.

    Dor crônica pode ser funcional, pós-cirúrgica ou neuro-muscular na origem.

    Infelizmente, existem poucas opções para a gestão da dor na maioria dos casos.
    Tradicionalmente, a estratégia de gestão mais
    popular adoptada pela maioria dos médicos e público em
    geral é analgésicos OTC. Para dor moderada a grave, AINEs sem receita (Non – steroidal
    anti – inflamatórias drogas) são ineficazes e mais potentes opoids são
    necessários para alívio; no entanto, opoids e outros
    medicamentos para a dor tem um número de complicações,
    incluindo vício potencial, fenômenos de tolerância e multi-visceral.

    Uso de dezenas fornece duradouro alívio da dor que é livre de complicações.
    Uma Meta-análise sugere que dezenas fornece uma redução de 43% em casos de dor crônica
    em oposição a apenas 23% de redução com
    uso de opoid.

    Para a segurança e benefícios ideais, é importante considerar estes pontos: fazem não colocar dezenas de
    eletrodos diretamente sobre os olhos ou ao redor da região peri-orbital devido ao risco substancial de um alarmante aumento da pressão intra-ocular que pode levar a dor ou até mesmo
    danos ao aparelho visual. Ele é contra-indicado para aplicar os eléctrodos sobre um tumor ou malignidade como
    a corrente elétrica pode estimular o crescimento do tumor.

    Nunca colocar eletrodos na face anterior do pescoço, como o risco de reflexo vaso-vagal é muito
    alto, que pode culminar em hipotensão, isquemia cerebral e outras complicações.
    Colocar eletrodos sobre feridas, pele aberta ou desgastado ou abscesso também deve
    ser evitado. Para obter melhores resultados, sempre consultar uma fisioterapeuta sobre o
    uso adequado das dezenas dispositivos para uso individual ou em
    casa.

    DEZENAS podem ser dado como terapia adjuvante com outros
    medications da dor em pacientes com dor crônica (em fase terminal de câncer, quimioterapia induzida dor
    e anormalidades neuromusculares) juntamente com analgésicos
    potentes. Isso ajuda na redução da dose necessária para produzir alívio da dor ao diminuir o risco de dependência ou de
    tolerância.

    Para benefícios ideais, é obrigatório considerar a etiologia
    da dor e consequentemente outras intervenções também devem ser consideradas
    simultaneamente (desde dezenas funcionam melhor como terapia adjuvante).

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have offered to your
    post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for
    newbies. May you please extend them a bit from subsequent
    time? Thank you for the post.

    online gaming mainly because back when the first on the
    internet gamers began the only way to play over the Internet was through

    home.

  25. Heya! I know this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask. Does building a well-established
    blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

  26. I am genuinely grateful to the holder of this website who has shared this impressive article at here.

  27. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is
    something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  28. With technological advances, these monitors have become
    much easier to use and more importantly they are
    very accurate. Before we look into the workings
    of an automatic meter, let’s investigate how a manual blood pressure monitor, or NIBP
    monitor, or high blood pressure bp monitor works. In what form
    do the readings appear — audio, digital display or a combination.

  29. Greate post. Keep posting such kind of information on
    your site. Im really impressed by it.
    Hi there, You have performed a great job. I’ll
    definitely digg it and individually suggest
    to my friends. I am sure they’ll be benefited from this site.

  30. I like it when individuals come together and share thoughts.
    Great blog, continue the good work!
