ive seen a few commuter series friction trains around on ebay. unfortunately most have been expensive or smaller sized like this one. i did get one small generic dmu commuter (like 21cm). would be great to get some more at the larger size!

 

the other great tin type find i have for JR freight stuff is a double set wtih engine and two cars. one set has two double deck car carriers with 4 little tin cars for each carrier. other set has two cars with 2 blue jr containers each. very fun. these seem like they are pretty new productions.

 

you can see the container train here.

much more expensive than i paid for the double set!

 

have also seen romance train friction toys, but they have been expensive!

I like Aaron's idea for a new donations box. He's thinking BIG.

One post from Sushi Train was where can he get a train like the one at your exhibitions that the DC club uses for donations. (It's a shinkansen with a money slot) I figured use the ride you posted as a New donation box. It's bigger and not only do you give a donation but you get a ride too. (I hope that explains my poor original joke ::))

Problem with this for a ride is if it was a real shinkansen ride there would not be much in the way of moving around!

both, but we would kick the little kids out of the ride and cram our knees up to our chins to ride it over and over and over and over.... at least until enough parents complained to management or the limits on our credit cards wares out, which ever would come first...

See, now there's the ultimate proof. I always thought that the newer Shinkansens looked like shoes...

Unfortunately they probably dont make them in size 14! bummer kids get all the cool stuff!

 

I want a dr yellow to run around our backyard. i had kind of abandoned the idea of running a garden rr loop around the yard as we have a dog (potential of doing things on the track) and a lot of trees (ie deep leaf cover in the fall), but if i would do a shinkansen line i could run it on a viaduct! Damn now im off thinking about how cool that would be racing around the back yard!

 

ill have to lobby parks and rec to get one of the bullet train bouncies in the park next door to our house! they probably wont go for it since they would be wise to the fact i would go over and play on it and at 6' 4" 190lbs it would not last long i fear!

 

cheers,

on my visit to Japan, the other thing the Japanese love besides trains are vending machines. It's where I got hot coffee in a can.

Just found this thread. Wow. This layout is truly the gold standard of American Japanese-prototype layouts.

I can get it at our local japanese markets here in the DC area, but at $2.50 a bottle! did find powdered mix that was about 1/3rd the cost though! great name always made me thing it was the drippings from a soccer player's game towel!
