T Scale Train





Got a 1/450, 3mm wide T Scale train today! Finally, after several days of customs tie ups, that and my Shirai Kuroko 1/8 figure from Koto came today, too. Now if I could just get my Biribiri 1/8 replacement back from Robert's Corner Anime Store... Also got a Taiko no Tatsujin tenugui, or handtowel, which I'm going to hang as a tapestry in any case.

Do these train sets come with landscaping, rails and all? How much did you pay for it? Looks like fun.

Did you put it together yet? I was so tempted to buy some train stuff at the Bic's Camera shop in Shijuku but I got a Transformers Convoy instead. Didn't have room for both. I'm going to get some trains next time I'm there ;P

Oh and speaking of Taiko no Tstsujin, I finally got the game for the Wii. It took a while thru customs too. I don't know why. But its so easy to get hooked on that game ;P

@AniFigsToys: No, actually the train was sold by itself, the control box and track came together (and just require 3 AA batteries, so no 100V converter required), and the scenery is all sold separately. I LIKE this scale, don't get me wrong, but I might end up buying an N Scale, too. Eishindo seems to be the only company that makes this scale (so far). And while they have produced enough elements to be able to build a scene around your tracks, they aren't as detailed, nor is there the same amount of variety as N Scale stuff.

@fumoffu: I haven't put it together yet, I'm actually still trying to find some space myself for all of it. =P I could throw it in another room if I wanted it to be potentially crushed and smell like cigarettes, lol. When I do put it up, which should be tomorrow, I'll post pics and probably a video, too. I was hesitant to get in to model RRing because trains are expensive, as is plastic scale anything, but I'm sure you know that. ~_^ As far as Taiko no Tatsujin, I love the Japanese games, though I've not played that many of them. I've had one of the Japanese PS2 versions for a while and the first DS one with the drumstick styluses, as well as the american version because those drums were a lot cheaper than importing a Japanese one. ^^; The american version is awful because of licensing issues and localization.

I haven't really looked into the Japanese train models in detail, but I've always been keen on the ones I see from the old time Lionel trains etc - and watching those complete sets with scenery and all - they look really fun even though you basically just see them chugging around. The Japanese trains seem to be much barer in terms of design (afterall they just take after the real thing) but definitely hope to get into that as well eventually.
