Fun fact of the day: A set of R-28 when connected will not result in a nice half-circle. The diverted track turns a bit sooner than a normal curve rail. [attachment=2797] 4 R-03 rails overlaid on to...

All trains in the SC series will have some sort of anime/cartoon character themed wrapping/body, which means they will cost a bit more (compare to other trains with similar size and functions) due to ...

Alright, my under-bed layout has an update! Given now that I have the giant N700, I decided that I'll need a full enough set of rails to build a separate removable layout, partly for the giant N700 a...

So apparently, you roll the motor car back and forward multiple times to "charge" (and there's a light inside to indicate how much energy is charged). Once you done, you flick the switch (positioned t...
