How Many Motorized Road Vehicles Are There?
Courtesy of Member Chrisjo, a picture from what looks like a Tomica Catalog fro 1997 showing what motorized vehicles were available then.

how come they don't make Motorized Toyota Coaster (it is a mini bus and very popular in Asia)?

OMG...Dr Chris that is a fantastic site. I don't have Tweetie so I am really glad I can see that. Looks right off the bat that there is a custom using a container truck. And you pointed out...a Remote Controlled Motor Tomica.....Fantastic...I want one.

Why did TOMY drop the motorized cars and trucks in favor of the Tomica diecast cars? Having battery-operated trains and cars side-by-side was always fun to see. They discontinued Bertie, Bulgy, Lorry and Elizabeth in the Thomas & Friends line around the same time, too.

Thats a great question Fred. Wonder why? Wonder if there was a specific reason like poor sales or problems with the vehicles. Maybe there was a small parts and young children issue. Might anyone have an idea?

for one thing the N batteries are harder to find (you can't find them in Dollar stores) and more expensive.

I can't speak for other country's but the 'N' batteries are readily available in the States and not expensive like this set of 2 Duracells on Ebay Duracells plus I have found that about half of the motorized vehicles us AAA's. I would also assume that the 'N' batteries are also easy to find in Japan as I wouldn't think they would create a vehicle where the batteries are hard to find in their normal market.

It cheaper to buy online in NZ. In shop it 8 dollars for 2 battery. On online in NZ you get 50 for 32.50 NZD (20.64 USD) Link here

Thanks for still looking out for the list Leyland

I do see 2 that aren't in the list in this Lot, both being not seen by me before. There is a variation of a Zoo Bus that is not in the List (close but not the exact same) and that red Tanker that I have not seen before. Does anyone have more info on these especially that red Tanker and possibly so closer pictures?

Tobu Group Bus

Somewhat hard to find but I managed to get a hold of this new one. A bit disappointed as it is all plastic when I thought the body was going to be diecast. Also what is odd is that on the box the Model is C-01 but under the chassis it is E-04. Brings our total to 68 so far and I know there are a few more if not more than that.
