From here on I am doing construction of my last plan. The tables are set up, and the width cut to 48 inches. I am waiting on one more table which when added will bring the layout to 3400mm long by 48 inches wide. I suppose I will have to get better at taking pictures, loading them into my computer and then displaying them on here. Sounds like a lot of work. So, here goes. Gerry
This plan will include all modes of track and vehicles used in Japanese model railroading. Well, the ones I am interested in anyway. Unitram. This is where I got interested in Japan models. I ordered a V50 set from them 4 years ago, they put it on back order, and I never heard from them again. That was when I found out that I could order from Japan, and even though the shipping is expensive, I at least get what I order. Unitrack. I later got interested in Japan trains when I saw my first Shinkansen. Found out how easy it is to use Unitrack, and all the variety there is to use. I tried then to combine both on the same layout with some disastrous results. Thanks to the people on this forum for straightening me out. Mind you they also have some expensive ideas. Moving Buses. Then along came Tomytec with their moving bus system, which opened up other possibilities, and other problems. These were designed so that you could combine them with their Wide Track Tram system and ideas took off. So this will be my real serious layout to try to combine all these systems into the same layout. I have some of it laid out on a plan that I have been playing with. I got 3 aluminum frame tables from Noch in Germany and will try to cram as much as possible into this plan. Now I have to try to remember how to copy a plan into here. Let me give it a try and I will be back with further details. Gerry
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionHeads up to forum members in Japan- tomorrow (Sat Nov.9) TV Asahi will broadcast a two hour special of their "Onegai Ranking Gold" quiz/information show- the topic will be the Shinkansen and buses (I assume Tokyo Municipal "Toei"). Oddly, the TV Asahi HP for this program shows no such episode information, but I saw the commercial for this program tonight, just before the Japan-Taiwan baseball game.
