Releases for the next few months (revised)

Yes gentle readers, changes have already been made to the post I did just a day ago (mostly by Kato) 😦

MODEMO

Another Hakone Tozan releases from Modemo in November …

  • NT73 Hakone Tozan Moha1 2 car set ‘tokotokotto Train’

This set was painted in a special livery for about a year from April 1999, and has something to do with sheep, whose heads you will see painted all along the sides 😆

November

  • N700 series TEC sets

Interesting news about the N700 sets is that it will have a several new features, including a new form of ‘all car electrical coupler’ – I am assuming that this means that the couplers will be able to pass the track current through the whole train !!!

I for one are just glad to see that they did not continue using those useless TS couplers, that were on the 700-3000 TEC sets. If they had used them again, I would NOT have bought this item, and would have waited for the Kato version. The fact they are developing a new type of coupler proves that Tomix have admitted they were a faulty design 🙄
