What am I going to do with this thing?

07/28/06 | by silverso | Categories: Trains



About a year and a half ago I bought a small train set from Toys R Us in Aomori City. It seemed a little small so I bought some extra track for it. Then I thought that maybe it could use another train or two. Well things kind of snowballed from there when I foolishly decided to try to collect all the trains that go through Noheji town. Now I have almost all of them, except for the elusive Super Hakucho which I can only seem to find here. My collection even includes a model of the rare Doraemon Undersea Train. Anyway, until yesterday when I tore it down, my model train set took up an entire bedroom in my ridiculously large apartment! I don't know if or when I'll ever have another apartment with enough space for this thing. What am I going to do?

Incentive to get a well-paying job in order to be able to afford you own place with a great-big garrage. ^_^

Where did you find your other trains? I’ll be on the lookout and willing to send it to ya should I find it, along with how I’m taking over your end of Operation: Bear Watch for you.

That’s great how you were able to get so many of the trains. It’s like once you start collecting something in Japan, you can’t stop. Everything is so addictive.

I have to agree with jason! Once you start collecting somehting in japna you can never stop *_* . And for jamie, i am a Tomy blue track train collector… I have a whole huge japanese teabox with the stuff and every now and then deck out my whole room in the stuff… Monorail and all…

My suitcases home are just riddiculous looking inside. Half clothing (most with funny Engrish written on them) and the rest is mostly tiny capsule toys, model trains and robot dogs. It’s going to be hard quiting toy collecting cold turkey, but since Canada doesn’t have to Walmart sized otaku manga stores that Japan has I’m affraid that I’ll have no choice.

You can always visit us in Ann Arbor and get your fix at Wizzy Wig or our excellent Asian Grocery (It’s become even more Japan friendly around here since Toyota moved here)

Hey Jenny!
Yeah, I think I remember that store. Still doesn’t hold a candle to the Hirosaki otaku store, but I’m glad you have it there. I found a store in Toronto that sells 100 yen Pokari Sweat bottles for 3 bucks!
