Bandai’s ‘B-Train Shorty’ models

In case you haven’t noticed the link, I have started a new page to document Bandai’s ‘B-Train Shorty’ models – specifically to …

research the history of Bandai’s “B-Train Shorty” range of N scale model trains, and promote them outside of Japan where there are virtually unknown.

  1. advertise new and upcoming releases.
  2. show how they can be assembled/modified.
  3. document the building of TWO layouts that will feature these trains :-)

The buildings of ‘Setagaya’

As I promised, the last task before the chapter that was ‘Setagaya’ was closed forever, was to document all the buildings.

This has now been done at this page.

Please be patient, as there are over 370 thumbnails to load  🙄  Click on each one to see a larger version.

Some buildings were on different versions of the layout over the 5 year period, because when I first started, there were none of the Kato Diotown and Tomytec Machinami series etc available. As new releases came out, other buildings had to go, even though the layout was expanded to double the original size just to accomodate everything I wanted to display.

Not every building on the page was used on the layout, but it will give you an idea of the versatility of some of these kits, and hopefully give you some ideas to make some of your own. Don’t worry – the designs are not copyrighted 😆

Please enjoy browsing, and if you have any questions about any of the buildings, please feel free to ask. With that many pictures, I am sure I may have missed a link somewhere, so if find any errors, please let me know 😀
