Tomix releases for July 2007

‘New’ releases 

In July, Tomix will re-release the Keihin Toihoku 209-0 series train for the 3rd time !!!

  1. It was first released in 1994 as a 4 car set, and with all cars also available separately.
  2. 6 door cars were added to the train in 1995, but Tomix did not release this car until 2003, and at the same time reconfigured the set to be 7 cars (with the ‘6-door’ logo on the front), with only the Saha209 trailer car now being available separately.
  3. Now it will be released as a 3 car set (92329), as per all the latest releases, a 4 car add-on set (92330), and the Saha209 trailer car (8917 – 3 needed for the full 10 car train). This is a different set in that it matches the lartest version of the train with openable windows.
