The layouts at the new Kato Store
This view is of the largest N scale layout.
It would have been great if they had a lot of trains running on this layout but when I was there they only had a couple of trains running.
Modeling a station scene in Tokyo, you need taxi cab models and lots of people.
One thing that caught my eye was this display of a section of clear acrylic pipe with a platform inside wide enough for a double track section of Unitrak - for a Subway ?
The Kato Hobby Center is certainly a great place to visit when in Tokyo. In my previous post, I show a map of how to get there from the nearest subway station. Here is another link to a great collection of photos done by John Sing in 2008 of the old store and also has photo directions on how to get there from the subway station.
