  1. Hello all, I checked around to see if someone had already posted this question, and didn't see anything close, but please forgive me if I missed something! Nearly any model train layout, especially one where the prototype is set in Tokyo, needs more transportation options than just trains, I'm talking about BUSSES! They're seen nearly everywhere, and they're certainly something that I'm currently missing... Could anyone tell me which busses would be prototypical for operating in central Tokyo, for example, around the areas the Yamanote line runs? There are so many colorful options, and I just seem to get lost in all the possibilities! I do know of the Toei bus, for which I'm looking for multiple n-scale models of, but there must be more, right? ~Phillip

    Planning a future layout

    I'm thinking about a future build for when my current layout is "finished" I know I want to do something in N gauge with the Tomytec bus system, however I have a couple of questions: 1 Is there a program like anyrail that has the bus system pieces in it? 2 Is there anything other than buses available yet? 3 is there a reliable way to know what buses would take a motorized bus chassis?

    Okayama Korakuen Bus

    I'm posting this mostly for JR500's benefit :) although I admit it's a sharp looking livery. http://korakuen-bus.jp/
  4. I just received from Japan The Tomytec Moving Bus System Basic Set B2. Well, speaking no Japanese I looked at pictures and was able to construct this simple little set. I already knew the batteries were tough to install, but having the correct tools sure helps! A tiny Philips head screwdriver does the trick. I ran the bus all night and woke up to a dead bus, but it works like a charm. Haha... This IS FUN! I'm sorry, I think I posted in the wrong place!
  5. Served by 118 bus companies, with routes to 39 prefectures. Around 1600 arrivals and departures daily, making it the largest bus terminal in the nation. https://youtube.com/watch?v=BMifwabhOqE https://youtube.com/watch?v=JYmcr_GJzac
  6. JR500, you need this: https://twitter.com/R_esculenta/status/668710688739557377 According to the tweet, he built them himself. Excellent work. I think the event was the Surutto Kansai Bus Matsuri: http://www.surutto.com/bus/ https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%B9%E3%83%AB%E3%83%83%E3%81%A8KANSAI%E3%83%90%E3%82%B9%E3%81%BE%E3%81%A4%E3%82%8A Looks like it's held mid- to late-September every year, with 27 companies participating in 2015. Attendance isn't indicated, but it's been significant for previous years. How is it that a bus festival can draw 30,000 people? What makes Japan a society that's not just willing to use public transit, but is in some ways enthusiastic about it?
