JR 500系

I think there isn't a thread on Railway Novelty goods, how about starting one here?

 

This is a good start, just saw this on HS: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10303215

 

I want them all!

I have the Isaburo-Shinpei and the Hayato No Kaze keyrings also.

 

Actually have 2 Isaburo-Shinpei keyrings as a Japanese tour guide with a group gave our 11 month old one for letting her cuddle him.  Blonde w/ blue eyes has its perks in Japan. haha

aaahhh interesting! I like the 3 badges of the Hitsatsu line! I can still recall Nick Szasz in Train Cruise saying: "First train, first badge. Two more trains, two more badges. Ready to go!" Haha ~

 

Yap the Japanese love blondes especially cute little ones. ~  :)

Nariichi San has a great set of trinkets available.

Highly recommend the chopsticks and the ef500 container train phone charm, it's perfect to pull my tiny dumb phone out of my pocket and everyone asks what the little train is dangling from my pocket! It's held up very well (looks new) to maybe a year or so of abuse. Keep meaning to order a jnr mug with the next order.

 

I love the 100yen vending machine toys, especially the wind up trains. I'll dig out the box and take some Picts.

 

Btw every once and a while interesting Japanese train trinkets also show up on ebay at reasonable prices.

Interesting you should say that Jeff, I just received a couple of rather nice Yamanote line bookmarks from an eBay seller in some obscure corner of the US.

 

Those JNR mugs look good too, think I'll have to get a pair of them.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

This is right with my idea of little personal cakes in the shape of shinkansens and other trains. Could inkjet print all the details quite nicely (yes they do that with food now!)

I can always hear the rattle of a 115 series when I have my coffee or tea :)

That sushi cutters great! Definitely looking for it when I go Japan!

 

Heard there some very nice novelty goods too sold at Enoden shops at the end of Enoden lines; i.e. Enoden Fujisawa station and Kumakura station.

Jeez, Jeff, don't give all my secrets away!  But it wouldn't be the first time I've gone to work with something like that... :)

 

I showed Harry those eBay pages this morning and asked him which one he'd like to have. He replied, "All of them".

 

All the best,

 

Mark.

Only in the Tokai region this autumn, special can coffee designs celebrating Meitetsu´s founding. I bought three at a kiosk at the Centrair station on my way home to Sapporo.

Purchased at a bookstore today, a poster calendar that is a replica of the network map found inside JR East trains in the Kanto region.

It comes in a box printed as a train, in my example, a Keihin Tohoku Line E233.

It appears to be sold out on Amazon, and is selling used for ten times its list price in the secondary market. One good thing about living in Sapporo is you can sometimes get stuff sold out in Tokyo, as there are fewer enthusiasts here, if you can find it on the shelves.

I make my own wallpapers. or as they're referred to on a Mac, desktop pictures.

Hello Mr bikkuri bahn,

 

I like your calendar very much.  It makes me wonder why no one has invented a board game based on the JR network map ... after thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that none of us would live long enough to finish such a game ...
