I wish you good luck with the shop and looking forward to the rental layout mentioned earlier. (sadly most european hobby shops only have a bare oval for testing or a few static dioramas buit by some of the manufacturers)

It is a shame you don't update the blog anymore.  Not all of us use facebook.


Yes, FB page is open to public, so anyone can see it.  This is another reason I migrated sharing any update.

Due to disk space limitation, I will no longer updating blog page at my online shop.


Thank you railsquid-san for the follow up.

Thanks again Nariichi for hunting down some parts for me as well as holding onto a set whilst waiting for my pre order to come in, the 313 Series and the 373 Series look beautiful sitting there together, I will have to start building a layout for them to call home.

During my just finished Japan 2016 trip i did visit ModelTrainPlus shop and meet, of course, Mr. Nariichi.


A Wonderful person to speak to (we went a few days later to lunch together), nice shop full of train material and very good place where to leave your Yen ;) 

I did found all what i needed in H0 and N size!


The shop is easy to reach by JR lines and you can have a perfect  train day.

Go first to Omya where you can visit the train museum and on the way back stop at Mr. Nariichi shop. 

15 minutes by train from Omya.


Again,Arigatou gozaimasu Mr. Nariichi!!
