Whats This? Tokyo Sakura Tram?
#1
Tokyo Sakura Tram

I don't think I have heard of this. Is it new and maybe a site specific release because there isn't a model number? Whatever it is...I like it!

I have started seeing these the last few days on Japan Auction sites.
I like it too.  Sure goes fast by the looks of the video

I noticed the speed doesn't fit what a Tram would be. It has the very new motor chassis and I couldn't see if it was a two speed or not with the owner opting for fast in the video. I also noticed in the video that the upper boards graphics look to be stickers.

I noticed the stickers too.  Stickers seem to be very common place now days, which is disappointing.

Wow! Woow! What a beautiful tram! I don't mind the stickers, tram looks very nice and it's very detailed. It would look great in my Plarail depot. Smile

Wow...Announced just a few weeks ago and already available for sale? A bit unusual as we have usually had more information on a release much earlier than that if not just rumors. Anyone seen more info as far as whether its a 2 speed?

I assume that this new part on Plarail boxes indicates the new motor chassis system for the trains but can anyone translate what this says?

Full details here. The page shows that you can interchange various super-speed and remote-control chassis.

Above the icon it just says "Change OK".

Thanks Dr Chris

Thats interesting about the swapping out of the R/C chassis. Wonder if they have plans to sell just the chassis with a controller unit, that would be cool. It would be even cooler if that controller could be used for multiple trains at the same time and that, in addition to selling the controller and a chassis as a set also offer addition chassis by themselves to add on.

Am I just a dreamer....Plarail...are you listening?

The sakura tram and 10-300's release is actually faster than usual this time, it is also seen in the retail stores now. Retail price is very high so I recommend to avoid paying for one unless you are a fan of it. Price to parts ratio is the lowest.

And yes it is a new motor system, sharing with the current Plarails.

According to the pictogram, it's a one speed engine

Thanks Mr-No

Looks like I will have to add weights and use 1.2 volt rechargeable battery's or, swap out the motor itself with something slower as the speed scale for Plarail looks closer to the Shinkansens.

Btw. there is also a blue 9002, maybe we will see it as a Plarail model one day too?
