  2. Hello all,
    Im Jerry, Im an American N scale collector. I have to say that Japan puts out the best N scale trains I have ever seen. I have a huge collection of N scale from Japan. My favorite Japanese commuter is the Kiha 200 (I have this train, 12 cars from Greenmax), favorite Shinkansen, E3 Akita (Tomix). Email me if you want to talk n scale trains or trains in general. I enjoy meeting other train enthusiasts.
