  A fun day soldering
Posted by: Roblue1091 - 04-12-2019, 09:27 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (9)

I had a fun day soldering new wires For TOMY James and Gordon Henry has other problems. For one his driving wheels have a crack in the main gear and a cut wire all 3 suffered the same problem only Henry has the crack.

Both James and Gordon run well tho James did not want to start right away a jump from a rechargeable AA battery changed his mind.

  Fantastic, Vintage Tomy Monorail!!!
Posted by: Super - 04-11-2019, 07:32 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (2)

This is a fantastic vintage Tomy Monorail Set. I love it, anyone have information on this especially a video? If you use the Tomy Logo as a reference it could have been released anywhere between 1967 & 1981 but because this one is red and not black would it be in the earlier years. It also has a very clever reversing system on it too. It is amazing.

  Plarail E235 Sound and Light Train (Talk n Action - kind of..)
Posted by: ripley802 - 04-09-2019, 10:45 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (3)

Here is the new E235 which has Sound and Lights and comes with three pieces of track similar to the new C62 set that was released.  The interesting thing about these two sets is the track that comes with the E235 set is numbered 2,3, and 6, while the C62 set comes with 1, 3,4,and 5.  Part 1 shows the 3 track pieces that come with the set.  Then part two I used the track from the C62 set.

  P-89 Drawbridge???
Posted by: Super - 04-09-2019, 01:26 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (6)

This Vintage P-89 Drawbridge looks odd to me. Has anyone seen a video or know of this in action? What does it do, how does it do it? The right side looks like it ramps up, shouldn't that part ramp down. And there are the Plarail track connectors in the middle???

  Tomy In Singapore
Posted by: Finno - 04-07-2019, 01:44 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - No Replies

Hi folks,

I'm planning to be in Singapore in June and want to plan a bit better than I did on my China trip.

Anyone know what the scene is like there? Any stores stocking Plarail? Places I should check?

  Tomy in China
Posted by: Finno - 04-03-2019, 08:39 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (9)

On a recent business trip to Shanghai I decided to spend some of the precious personal time I had on a mission to hunt down some Tomy.

I found Toys R Us officially carry Takara Tomy, including Plarail.

Here's some clandestine pics to give you an idea what they have...

I also hit the jackpot and discovered a small private toy store in a tiny underground market called 'Neon Kids', tucked waaaaay down the back. If you ever want to know how to find it PM me and I will draw you a map!  You will notice in the Toys R Us the engine prices are in the 139 - 169 range. At this store I took an engine marked 129 up to the counter and the lady punched out 107 on her calculator (so I went back and grabbed a couple more - LOL).

Couldn't really take photos inside but here's a couple through the window.

Happy hunting! Smile

  Tomy Plarail C62 Sound and Action - 60th Anniversary Steam Locomotive - First Run!

Quick video to show this little guy.  So far I like it.  I did not have a ton of time to look it over this evening, but look forward to running it a bit more.  Sorry for the bit where I was juggling the track and holding my phone trying to video.   Cool

  Definitive Source of Information
Posted by: Finno - 03-29-2019, 01:51 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (8)

Hi Folks,

I was wondering if you all have a single source of information you turn to for Tomy Plarail?  In my web searching I have found quite a few good websites (some of the awesome ones by members of these forums too - I've learn't a lot from reading Sun's website! Thank you!).

But is there a single database (preferably searchable and sortable) to see all the products that have been produced? or even a book? or a wiki? I guess they probably have something like this in Japanese.
