Product Reviews

A great aspect of modeling japanese trains is the number of great products constantly hitting the market. With manufactures like Tomix, Kato, MicroAce, Green Max, Modemo, etc all releasing many new trains, structure, track, and scenery items every year this really is a golden age to be modeling japanese trains. Many train models and other products are made by more than one manufacturer and each has its own benefits and drawbacks, so we hope that the reviews here can help folks find the right item for them and their needs and interests.
