Oigawa Railway Line Thomas, Percy and Hiro
#1
If you ever get a chance to visit Japan, be sure to drop by Oigawa Railway Line.  They have real life size thomas, percy and Hiro (perhaps even more characters).  Based on the photos one of my friends posted, Hiro is the most realistic looking.

The Ōigawa Railway has had Day Out with Thomas for six years now. In addition to those other three, they also have Winston, Flynn and Bulgy and apparently add a new character once a year. You might remember the merchandise based on the Thomas and James replicas (Plarail, Tomica and Capsule Plarail to name a few).

I always thought the C11-based Thomas was pretty cool.

Probably controversial here but I like it better than the original E2-based Thomas!

Not at all controversial with me OTR but the other controversy (to me) is that I believe he looks more like the C-12 as the C-11 has smoke defectors and the C-12 does not. Other than that the engines look to be exact.

The designs are certainly close enough that Tomy has based both engines on the same basic molds. In real life, the C11 is a bit larger and heavier, featuring a larger coal bunker and an extra set of trailing wheels. The C12 is a 2-6-2T while the C11 is a 2-6-4T configuration.

So this Day Out With Thomas Oigawa is made from a C-11 but with its smoke deflectors removed. I now know and stand corrected. Thanks for the description OTR to straighten out this feeble brain. I will no longer refer to this Thomas as a C-12 as the differences are evident thanks to your pointing it out as I always thought them to be much more alike. Smile
