In December Tomytec will release its first non-Japanese tram models. These are Adtranz GT6N, Berlin 1000 series and Munich 2000 series. The Berlin GT6N cars were built over a 10 year period from 1994 to 2003. The Tomytec model will be a single end tram, that it drives in only one direction and has doors on one side only. This is common outside Japan, but not found at all in Japan. It either requires a loop to turn around or a circle line. http://www.tomytec.co.jp/diocolle/items/pdf/newitem_20170809_06.pdf Tomytec's GT6N has three sections although there are seven sections in some GT6Ns in Berlin now. Each of the three sections of a prototype GT6N is powered. For the GT6N Tomytec will use the triple bogie TM-LRT04 power unit. A non -Japanese prototype is something new for Tomytec as is the single direction operating configuration. As the GT6N was a design for Japanese trams in Kumamoto, Takaoka, Okayama and Toyama I wonder if we will really see more European prototypes from Tomytec. If you want them it might be an ideal to scoop them up while they are available. Hard to say if this will be repeated
