Interesting Pieces From My Japan Trip
#1
Here are some of the more interesting Plarail items I managed to pick up on my recent trip to Japan.

Because I have limited baggage space I tried to limit myself to things I hadn't seen before or couldn't get easily online back home. Hence there is a fair bit of second hand/used stuff.

[Image: IMG-20191127-153237.jpg] Spacia Tobu series in the original livery and the 'miyabi' purple livery (I already have the 'sunny coral ' orange).

[Image: IMG-20191127-154143.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-154201.jpg] A small Koban police station with red lights and a dial to change the front sign. Can anyone translate the sign?

[Image: IMG-20191127-154320.jpg] A parking boom gate with a pass card you insert and push down to raise the boom.


[Image: IMG-20191127-154413.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-154523.jpg]  I assume a 55th anniversary car and two cool blue metallic looking Plarail cars I really liked the colour of (100JPY each).


[Image: IMG-20191127-154634.jpg]  Some older Dr Yellow cars with the red wheels (100JPY each).


[Image: IMG-20191127-154730.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-154845.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-154905.jpg]  A bunch of numbered Plarail trains (100JPY for the cars, 350JPY for the engines).


[Image: IMG-20191127-154956.jpg]  I think this is a Shinkansen station. Never seen it before. It has a sticker of the Hayabusa (350JPY).


[Image: IMG-20191127-155045.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-155159.jpg]  Bright orange pylons and a green and blue versions of the garter bridge. Never seen these colours before (about 350JPY each pack).


[Image: IMG-20191127-155233.jpg]  Accidentally bought a Plarail Advance station (excitement got the better of me - 580JPY).


[Image: IMG-20191127-155419.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-155452.jpg]  Got these Plarail Shop exclusives at the Plarail store in Tokyo Station. (I think around 3000JPY each).


[Image: IMG-20191127-155513.jpg]  Found this one at Hobby Off - sealed in box as new. Around 3,400 JPY.


[Image: IMG-20191127-155630.jpg]  60th Anniversary and the Yamanote line sound gimmick train. (about 3,600 or 3,800JPY each at Plarail Shop).

[Image: IMG-20191127-161057.jpg]  [Image: IMG-20191127-161115.jpg]  Another find at Hobby Off. Tomica 7 Eleven, box was tatty but inside very good condition. Only about 900JPY!

I almost returned with less children than I went over with - it was a close call. Tongue
