JR 500系

Came upon this news while visiting Tomytec website:

 

http://www.tomytec.co.jp/ts_omiya/

 

Tomix world Tec Station is now open near Omiya Station!

 

It looks great! Anyone been there yet? Would love to see some photos from within!

 

Also there are some quite good deals for the opening sale, such as a starter kit (5 to choose from) with a station turnout set + Overhead station + platform for long trains at only 20000yen and also Basic 3 car sets (4 to choose from) with Plan B layout set (the one with the station turnout and controller) + platform for long trains and Overhead station at 25000yen!

I really want to go there, but it's on the other side of town... Maybe if I can persuade my girlfriend to go there when we go to her mom and dad. Then again, it doesn't look as interesting as I expected... At least, not as well stocked as the Kato showroom in Higashi-Shinjuku.

Hello Mr NuclearEric,

 

You are in Aichi?  What better excuse to take a trip to Tokyo Tomix World than to buy the train?

Has anyone been here recently?

Is it worth the trip out of Central Tokyo for?

Looking at planning day trips to here but it seems a bit out of the way compared to most other main stores in and around Tokyo.

Thoughts appreciated

go to the museum for the afternoon, then to tomix world before you head back to central tokyo.  it is a five minute walk from omiya station and the shop is open until 7pm.

I got to check this place out last month when I had to take an emergency trip to Japan.  It is way cool, albeit much smaller than I hoped for.  There are two sets of layouts, one big one with about 6 control stations, and three smaller ones with two stations each.  They have set out just about every single set they offer in their catalog against a wall.  I wish I found this four year old thread earlier, and I'd have posted pics.

 

The thing that I think is really cool is that they have a prize gacha machine, where you could win some pretty cool stuff.  Even the minimum stuff is worth the money (I can't remember if it was 200, 300 or 500 yen per try).

I wondered where that big layout was located.  It features in many pages of their recently layout building books.

Do they publish their layouts online?

I dont think so. But the books being 300 to 600 yen. The hard copy version doesnt break the bank.

I wish I had taken more advantage of it while I was there.  Like I said, it was a whirlwind 48 hour turnaround trip.  I was happy to get there, but now I need to go back to actually visit again.  I actually contemplated buying their ¥1800 catalog, but stupidly didn't.
