I borrowed the above picture from HobbySearch Japan’s website. I just received an email from them to let me know that this little tramcar that I had reserved quite some time ago has arrived. My interest in N scale trolleys is hard to hide and the second this was available to reserve I placed my order. The model itself isn’t powered but Tomix have made a chassis for the car. I’ve owned a number of Tomix/Tomytec chassis over the years and really like them. Smooth running and slow.
Tomytec have released a number of traction items for N scale over the years in their Railway Collection but this is the first legit streetcar model and if I understand correctly there are more to come. I’m really looking forward to a more scale wheelbase truck with nice small-diameter wheels. The closest we’ve ever had to a model like this in N is Bachmann’s Brill Trolley. I can’t wait to see how this model will compare.
It’s in the mail. I can’t wait to see it.
