Hello from Charleston SC

hello all!!  It is a beautiful sunny 70 degree day here as I browse ebay looking for my first Japanese railway purchase.  I believe I have been bitten by the Keihan bug so either a 600 or 700 will be the first purchase.  A big thank you to all who have helped me so far.  Big question is which one to go for, Thomas, K-On or tea time??

Hello and welcome!  There is an existing thread with information on the Keihan Otsu line and trains.

What you can go for will depend to a large degree on what is available.  Items in the Japanese distribution system have shorter shelf lives than in North America.  Brand choices are mainly Tomytec or B-Train Shorty from the English language dealers.

 

Here are a couple of Keihan searches on the Hobby Search website:

Other dealers are ModelTrainPlus (he doesn't carry B-Train Shorty anymore) and Amiami .
