  Separate Sale Metallic Clarabel
Posted by: gordonfan01 - Yesterday, 12:23 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (3)

So I was scrolling through the internet and I found this, a separate sale metallic Clarabel. I did not know this existed until now, can anyone identify where this comes from, is it rare, or anything about it?

  Not Sure If...
Posted by: Super - 09-22-2020, 08:33 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (2)

Not sure if I have seen this Plarail version of the  Original Semboku Liner before or, because of the painted in windows, is this a custom?. Am I just having a senior moment? Seen at the very beginning of this video.

  Tomy Thomas with front coupler
Posted by: jessetrains - 09-10-2020, 12:10 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (7)

I saw a what seems to be a normal Thomas with a front coupler. It does not look like a custom, but from the pictures it is hard to tell. I was wondering if anyone knew what it was.

Here is a link to a photo of it.

  Product codes/item numbers for Plarail Thomas?
Posted by: Fred_Pelhay - 08-27-2020, 10:03 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (8)

What are the "true" item numbers for every item in the Thomas range? Engines are assigned numbers e.g. TS-01, TS-02 etc. but they must have an actual stock number. Sets do not have a two-letter/two-number numbering system. Only thing I can guess is it must be the last six digits in the UPC (barcode), which differs from item to item. All I've got so far is from these items in my collection:
335771 - Thomas at the Suspension Bridge Set
826095 - Gator and Marion
968153 - Hurricane and Frankie
977735 - Thomas the Tank Engine Island of Sodor Challenge

EDIT: It seems has these 6-digit product numbers for Thomas items going back for at least the last few years.

  9 Tooth Gear?
Posted by: Vio - 08-26-2020, 11:15 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (6)

Has anyone seen a 9 tooth gear in your Plarail? If so which one? I checked Yahoo Auctions for the gears with the Plarail keyword, unfortunately no spare parts. AliExpress was the only choice. Spent a lot of time yesterday opening up gearboxes of other Plarail, but no 9 tooth gear found.

Unfortunately my C-62汽笛入り is the only Plarail that uses it (talking about rare gearboxes...), and it is broken so the motor makes a lot of noise which drowns the whistle sound. The motor is naturally quiet without any gearing.

  Motor Unit Compatability?
Posted by: wonge15 - 08-25-2020, 08:55 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (4)

I am planning to buy this 0 series trainset, but since it doesn't come with a motor unit, I am not sure which other trains have the same model of motor. Can someone tell me which model years should i be looking for?

  Odd Station?
Posted by: Super - 08-20-2020, 09:12 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (11)

I don't think I have seen a Station Platform like this before, if I did I have forgotten. I am not quite sure if its regular Plarail or Capsule as all the Listing says is 'Long Time Storage'. There are no other photo's of different angles. Sorry if its just Capsule.

Anyone recognize this?

Can anyone translate any of the Japanese TnA engines? (mainly the exclusives, i.e. Henry, Gordon, Toby, D10, no guessing lol)

I was just browsing instagram and twitter today and came across this post.
[Image: EfsTJhkUMAAMnlh?format=jpg&name=900x900]
For the 75th Anniversary of Thomas and Friends, Plarail will be releasing a clear thomas, along with a clear winston and chirin tekoro Percy and James.
I have been waiting for this for a long time, and I know a lot of other members have too. Sorry the image is VERY blurry but I only found it on twitter just now and was just so excited I had to share.

Here is also a press release from Tomy about what they're going to do for the 75th anniversary of Thomas which confirms the release of this AMAZING set along with others.
Here is also an Image of the other Plarail Items they are releasing:

I will definitely be making a couple purchases of these when it comes out, and I hope you all are just as excited as I am for this.

  Clear E2 Series Shinkansen???
Posted by: Tharazero1 - 08-14-2020, 11:09 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (8)

Hi guys,
I was just browsing as usual and I was looking and found a Clear E2 Series Shinkansen
[Image: 109354877_337666354070756_40700537780592...e=5F3C5BFD]
Now I've heard of a Clear Dr. Yellow, E5 and E6, but i've never seen a clear E2 series, I tried to learn and research about it but there is literally nothing about it, bar a couple of pictures and a video of it running here:

If anyone knows more about it and would like to share that would be great. Thanks
