Wow beautiful! 

 

It seems you can only buy from the shop?  (http://matsumoto-shoji.net/) at the very cheap price of 75,600 yen for all 3 lines, or 27,000 yen for just one of the three ~

In case it's not obvious, these are meant to represent the Hankyu Umeda terminal.

Can you also order the extension pieces or just it only come for 1 car trains? It looks amazing but at a price.

It's a custom built diorama. I'm sure it's possible to order the whole station custom built with correct track lengths for a bit more money. (hopefully the price scales linearly with the track length)

 

On the other hand it would be possible to custom build one using the pictures as the diorama looks to be using only a few types of beams two major colors of paint and custom printed paper decals. Only the railings look to be etched metal and the real ones are much shorter. (and the cross beams with the lights being flush with the main beams) So a home built one has the potential to be more acurate and even more awesome.

Isn't that 9 tracks?  Like Umeda:

 

1 ~ 3 Kyoto Line ... 25,000 yen 
4 ~ 6 Takarazuka Line ... 25,000 yen 
7 ~ 9 Kobe Line ... 25,000 yen 
Full Line Full Set (Special Price) ... 70,000 yen

 

Got room for 9 parallel tracks?

Yap all 3 lines means 9 parallel tracks...there's room, but it probably means just the terminal and no running trains... haha ~

What makes this station worse is having a platform between each track, so 9 tracks and around 10 platforms. It would be possible to build the station with tomix turnouts and that would make it roughly 70 cm wide and 150 cm long with 3 double tracks at the exit point. This could be a great terminus for a large home layout. (with essentially 3 deparate double track lines)

I know you know this already, but this recreates the Hankyu Umeda station where there is a platform on both sides of the the single tracks that trains come in on.  So this station is for someone who wants to recreate Umeda or something like it.
