Never saw that one. The engine (the part that can be seen) looks like some kind of a road vehicle...
But there has to be much more in that big package... I hope you show us new members of your fleet in all their glory! Smile

I know we had a discussion about this train a while ago because it was me who asked for info on it but I can't find that Thread. Its says FTR on the lead engine but that doesn't get anything with search or at YouTube. I will get a picture of the unit outside its box for you tomorrow plus another surprise from the box. I am enjoying taking this slow as I don't assume I will ever have another big purchase like this again.

Still haven't found the Thread where we talk about this unusual set

[Image: IMG-0445.jpg]


What else is coming out of the big box???
The 80th Anniversary Edition Series Set with two Commuter trains, Series 1 and 2000 with working Headlights.I think this neat double set was released in 2007 (please correct me if wrong) and was to commemorate the 80 years that this particular line has been operating in Japan. In the set we have what is the first train running this line and the current one.

The "FTR Train" (whatever that means) has that older-days-look and comes with somewhat unusual rolling stock: a car transport wagon and then the triggering unloading car... I wonder what that car (and where) is supposed to unload...

Beautiful Tokyo Metro Ginza Line commuter train set!  Heart

The classic train (Series 2000) was also in the double set with the classic Marunouchi Line train, and Ucwepn had a nice unboxing video of that one. 

Ginza line sold some of their Series 01 trains to Kumamoto Electric Railway, and I made a video on that one. However, for some reason, Tomy didn't make the Kumamoto Plarail version with working lights.

Even though the car says Tomica under the chassis it doesn't mention the Make and Model of it which you usually find on the Tomica vehicles. Its also made of medal, is quite heavy and both the driver and passenger doors open.

The FTR loco is a repaint of the 1989-1993 Meitetsu Panorama Super (1000 srs), and the car is a Tomica Toyota Celica. The name on the box is 'Unloading Freight Train' (積みおろし貨物トレイン), and the release date was 23-Nov-2000.

Thank you so much Dr Chris, for finding that Thread. Wow, 7 years ago. You really have a talent for searching, A trait I a missing.  I actually recall a video that this train was running on that showed the dump wagon dumping black round spheres but I don't recall a set having this train included with it. It would be strange to have only released it in this 3 item box with nowhere to perform the dumping. I have seen that Meitetsu Panorama engine before but never realized that the FTR was a repaint of it. Hmmm wonder what the FTR is short for...Freight Tran ...something?

And another thanks for the info on the double Ginza set, it is a very nice limited set. I am going to take one apart and see how they wired the lights and weather they used 1.5volt incandescent or an LED with a voltage generator board

See what a different colour scheme can make! I know that Meitetsu Panorama, and have seen it before, but I didn't recognize the repaint!  Blush

Thanks, Chris!
