Here are more details for the other buses on new pre-orders:

 

The Bus Collection Tokai Bus Orange Shuttle Love Live! Sunshine!! Wrapping Bus #3

 

The Bus Collection Osaka City Bus New Design Debut Anniversary (3 Cars Set)

Does the 700 series bus achieve the same speeds as the train? 😄

My Kitty Kitakyushu City buses arrived tonight.

 

And look what was waiting at the station on my way home.

That's a nice photo of what you just got off the shelf! Talk about coincidence! 

 

And I seriously SERIOUSLY need to stop buying buses...

I just cant stop it whenever I see nice individual buses for sale... especially those with Toei and I got lucky with 2 special bus from collection 5 & 7!  Those Greenmax ones aren't that bad too, but of course the Tomytec ones were much nicer in detail...

And the 5 bus set that I always wanted, the NishiTetsu set with the 'Hakata' Go!  🙂

 

I might need to sell off some of my buses soon... they are getting WAY too many and I am starting to lose track of them and getting duplicates here and there...

I’d like a few more Nishitetsu buses. It’s a nice set. I see those pink fan motif coaches a lot.

 

I guess you need to catalogue your collection in a better way if you’re getting duplicates. It’s easy to get carried away though. I’ve had to resist a lot of things which aren’t really in my current location. Train-wise I have a lot of different areas and eras rolling stock but I’ve kept mostly to Kyushu buses unless something really screams at me to buy it.

at least hobby search is nice and will indicate any items you have previously ordered (and when) when you check out. I guess they have enough people purchasing duplicates and asking for cancellations they decided to give the very nice reminder, when it’s against the hard bottom line. But saving yourself from a duplicate purchase could really endear you to Hs!

Hi All,

 

I got a wrong power-unit 🤐🤐🤐 ... so, now, I need to "fix" it ... 😂😂😂

 

1) Can any of You confirm that this bus - see picture - has a 32 mm (BM-01) wheelbase engine?

2) I'm looking, too, for a bodywork that fits a 35 mm (BM-02R) wheelbase, any hint? THX.

 

 

 

Regards

Francesco

Sorry man the Nishitetsu pink motif buses are probably staying ~ 🙂

 

I have a catalogue, but I don't refer to it as often and it really isn't update to date... When I saw something I like, I almost immediately buy it without consulting the spreadsheet, and after payment, turning to look at it and realise I already have one... 

 

I might need to re-look into the buses as they are amassing to quite a fair bit and sprouting out of their cases.... And I thought I could never have enough of them...

Hi there! To confirm, the Toei bus pictured above belongs to the basic A1 set, and uses the BM-01 (32mm) chassis ~

As for buses that uses a BM-02R (35mm) chassis, here are some of those:

 

(1)三菱ふそうMP218/618(第4弾)
(2)富士重工業5E(5台セットA、B/N016~020、051~055)
(3)西工58MC(第9弾)
(4)西工96MCワンステップ(第11弾)
(5)三菱ふそうエアロスター(第15弾)
(6)富士重工業7Eワンステップ(第16弾)
(7)日野ブルーリボンHT/HU5台セット(N011~015)
(8)日野ブルーリボンシティハイブリッド(バスコレ走行システムJR東日本BRTセットA)

 

And some more from the Island wide bus series:

<JB002>名古屋市交通局, <JB004>西日本鉄道, <JB007>新潟交通, <JB008>鹿児島市交通局, <JB009>北陸鉄道, <JB011>ちばレインボーバス, <JB013>しずてつジャストライン, <JB014>北九州市交通局, <JB016>名鉄バス, <JB017>立川バス, <JB018>阪急バス, <JB019>北海道中央バス, <JB020>青森市営バス, etc... 

 

You can use Tomytec Offical bus page to find out which buses use the BM-02/ BM-02R wheel bases, and find them using the JB series numbers (which makes things easier if you are not so fluent with Japanese) 

 

Generally, I find the newer JB series not being able to use the motorised chassis... wonder if this is going downhill...

Hi JR500,

 

THX a lot, even if japanese is not the best of my knowledge I'll handle it in some way. At least the first point (what engine for my bus) is clear ... THX again!

I FINALLY spent some time over the weekends to do an actual photo shoot for my buses in the bookcases, those that are VERY easily forgotten (even if I have n excel spreadsheet to know what buses I have but...) and always in the bookcases so getting the least love... 

 

I'm not sure if I am allowed to post all of the pictures (due to the absolute boredom of viewing too many pictures of buses) so here's a little teaser:

 

 Overall.thumb.jpg.621fe179a237a3034ae4c1dc2dac5b46.jpg

 

The photo taking also allowed me to finally know which buses I have multiple copies of, so I guess there's going to be a bus export sale soon ~  😛

Haha thanks! Here's a little sneak peak at what is inside those book cases...

Some of my favourite Toei buses...

I love the collection 17, especially the Hato bus, so you can imagine how much I am looking forward to the collection 27 ~

Some trucks are there too... ~  🙂

Reposting here what Steinkopf posted in the Tomix - New releases thread.

For Tomytec the latest trailer collection is a mouth watering selection and for me a must, it's interesting how Tomix have now brought out models of the UT20A and UT22A tank containers, these had only just been recently released by Popondetta and prior to that was only available as a whitemetal kit by Morita. There is also a nice collection of cement trailers as well as containers on trailers, it's nice to see more JRF 19G containers becoming available as they had only been on the long discontinued 2752 KoKi 107, one oddity in the collection is the old Hino with the 20' ISO marine containers which even the quite common in the rest of the world would find very few places on a Japanese layout. Also buses, buses, buses, I won't be putting up links for them but suffice to say Sammy's head will nearly spin off his shoulders when he sees the myriad of buses that are coming out, his total lack of interest in the Kato new releases that would have diminished any chance of his wallet having a hole burnt into it akin to a collapsing star has surely been dashed by those asphalt riding wheeled beasts.

HAHAHA Das know me SSSOOOOOO well haha!  🙂

 

And yes I practically ordered everything on that list, with an additional one more set for that lovely Seiryu Liner since it is so beautiful ~ 

 

Dang Tomytec knows how to take my money.... fortunately for me, the recent releases has yet to falter my will to stop getting more trains ~  😛
