Thanks Super.

I remember clearly that the toy shop had 3 of these big boxes but mother had a negative feeling of bringing big things home because our rooms are small and not much income during that time. Things changed over the years and the stuff we brought home are generally getting bigger and bigger. It was a relief that an empty hole of my childhood is filled after 29 years, really.

Yes, the station with tinted windows is exclusive to the set. Since the 1st generation airport set, the planes were interchangeable but there are mold differences below each plane from the generations.

The first generation airport set is unidirectional, but the Narita's is omnidirectional thanks to the additional gears on the drive rod. Every time the drive rod rotates, the gear in the opposite direction of the drive will move up and down the rod due to the jagged teeth on the sides and recoil from the springs to reset to original position.

A genius engineering feat. Thanks for taking it apart to show us Vio. In the first generation the is unidirectional, would the plane fly backwards if the train entered from the wrong direction?

As it is only 1 direction, the plane wont fly. The mechanism to stop the train will just be deactivated to let the train pass.

This is really an awesome, All Vintage Layout, worthy of picturing it on the front of Plarail Set Boxes like when they were sold.

I once had an idea of faithfully reproducing all the layouts on the old boxes. Either the layouts were incomplete, picture is unclear or too small, rail parts are missing, or there is something in the artwork (like a child) blocking the layout.
