Hello everyone, I am Robert and I joined this forum to learn more about Japanese Model Train. I'm going to start my collection this June since I'm going to stay in Chiba and Tokyo for 2 weeks. I want to know if there are stores or thrift shop that anyone here recommends where I could search for a brand new or second-hand model train. I'm planning to start with at least 2 for now and eventually expand the collection. Glad I found this community. Thank you!

Go to Models IMON, buy every H0j and H0e kit they have in stock, and then pass them on to me 😄

 

I was a bit too pre-occupied with other things while I was in Tokyo, so didn't really go to a model train shop. Doesn't help if you're travelling with people who don't care much about trains of course.

Awesome!  Let me know whenever you guys need help.  I'm also a member of the Belmont shore club over in San Pedro so maybe you guys can come by some time for a run session.
