My guess is it will end up in the bargain bin soon just like the J0 consist before it.

 

I'll wait and see what KATO does, however. Somehow the Logo of the N700S doesn't seem that great on the TOMIX version.

I agree.  But then I see what the $/Euro equivalent of 47k Yen will buy for Euro  trains and I realize we get a deal with Japanese trains...

 

(manufacturers, not speaking of things like KATO made trains of European prototypes but things like Fleischmann, Minitrix/Trix, Arnold/Hornby,  even Lemke/Hobbytrain)

Arnold has a "d" at the end

Some nice stuff!  Thankfully I have the kato 81 series already, if not I'd be sorely tempted.

Going by the picture, the 115-300 is actually a JR version rather than a JNR version. That JNR 485-1000 sure is interesting though 😄

Oigawa Railway `Kikansya Thomas Go`

 

The Thomas Go looks interesting...


And people complain about the price of MA and GM releases.

JPY 49,000 list for the special edition 9-car set, or JPY 23,500 list for Thomas and three coaches. I know it's on par with the other SLs Tomix produced, but still 😲

Some new lightning kit was announced together with the overpass - 0743 kit and 0745 lights. It looks very similar to the lightning kit included in lit platforms that came out last year. Those platforms have the kit preassembled though. Seems that Tomix will prefer addon kits than having lit and unlit versions of the same building in the future.

Went all in and reserved the Thomas 9-car set. I've been wanting an Oigawa Thomas for a while, now I don't have to build one myself ^_^ It's a bit expensive, but I'm sure I'll love it and it'll go with all my other Thomas model railway gear.

I was also ecstatic to see the Koki 105s available for pre-order from Hobby Search but...why don't I see it listed on any of the June release posters? Or did I just miss it? I checked the Tomytec website and didn't see it listed in the Tomix main page or new products page. hmmm

HS sometimes gets there pre-orders up quicker than Tomix does their website.

It's a re-release. They are listed here: https://www.tomytec.co.jp/tomix/reproduction/

 

Thanks for the link! Didn't realize Tomytec/Tomix split new and reproduction items into separate pages. Kato seems to just have a single page showing their schedule of upcoming releases without regard to new/reproduction - a little more convenient.

They do, and it's pretty stupid IMO. They should consolidate the annoncements and release schedules.
