That Saikyo Line 205 srs is a limited edition sold at the Railway Museum in Omiya, Saitama City, about 30km NW of downtown Tokyo (on the Saikyo Line), and released 14th October 2007 at the same time that the museum opened. I guess a lot of them were sold there, judging from the number on auction sites, but yours is the original box. It looked like this later:

Edit: removed implication that it is still on sale now!

Here we have the rare original Remote Controller for the rare R/C Switch Points. I think (not sure) there were two different R/C Switch Points that had to have this counsel to operate. I have often wondered why this counsel was sold separately from the Points if they are useless by themselves. I don't have any of the Points to see if this works so I will have to keep an eye out for them or just sell this Controller.

Is it correct to believe that you were supposed to post a picture of the E233 Series Saikyo Line?

The 205 Series has not been sold at the Railway Museum for a long, long time.

Good point, but no. I did mean to post that 205 srs box picture, but I should have just said that it replaced the box that Super bought, without saying that it was still available now. Sorry for any confusion.

Since you mention it, this is the Fun Train E233 srs Saikyo Line in the Railway Museum shop in May 2017, I believe they sold it there as a limited re-issue from March 2017 to some time in 2018. It had previously been generally available in the same box for a short period from October 2013.

The text in the yellow 'splatt' is 鉄道博物館限定販売 - "Limited sale at the Railway Museum "

I don't see any difference with the boxes. It would have been nice to put that 'splatt' on the outside of the Museum Shop one too.

Thanks for the info fellas. Smile

Wow! I definitely did not notice the difference in the photo. Good to know.  Big Grin

The Plarail E233 Series Saikyo line is mostly limited to the Railway Museum - although it is possible it pops up in some special events.

The time period when it is available seems to be an inexact science. Back when it was available it would sell out and after a while, the stock would be replenished without any marketing. On the other hand, in 2017 when it was available again there was a bit more marketing.

And now for the last item which in my opinion the best of the Lot. The very elusive D-51 882 First Try Set with some exclusive, this set only items. Besides the D-51 882 only found in this set there is the Gray Shed with Black Roof and the Switch point (I call it a close point) in gray that as far as I have seen is only available in the Tomy blue.

What is really odd about this release is that the front of the box shows a huge real D-51 Steam engine but its not the engine that is in the box. This engine on the front is not the D-51 882 but the D-51 498 whos Plarail version is a little easier to be found. Weird, wonder why they did that. I also wonder how many different First Try Sets they made. This is the second D-51 882 First Try Set I have, a great, rare, addition to anyones Steam Engine collection.

I really had fun taking my time with this big box of trains. I really don't see this happening any more for me but...who knows Big Grin
