Modemo tram question...
« on: August 06, 2017, 07:32:39 am »
Several years ago I aquired a number of Modemo Japanese outline model trams from the estate of a deceased colleague, several of which were "Interurban" style cars similar to those used in North America and fit in with my US layout (more or less - I think it is refered to as "Rule 1" on here, but "Rule 8" in G scale!).
However, I have 5 other more modern or "urban" trams that do not really fit in and I am looking at getting rid of by some means.
Having zero knowledge of Japanese model production runs, I appear to have items that fall into the "hens teeth" category, as they only appear to have been produced in limited runs in the early 2000's. A search on the net generally comes up with "sold out" for most of them!
Can anybody who has more knowledge of such things confim whether this is actually the case?

Many thanks.

You could put one on EBAY with a high reserve or buy it now price to see what happens.

Les Richardson had a Tram article in a recent N Gauge Society Journal with several Modemo models featured. I seem to recall that mechanical/electrical reliability is an issue with the multi-car trams. Even so the ones I have seen on Ebay have fetched well into 3 figures in GBP.

That more or less confirms what I found earlier today - A couple of the low floor artic cars were 90 Euros, whilst the others, a high floor artic unit, a twin car set and even a single car Tokyo tram were in the US$140 area.
That's why I thought I would see if anyone on here could confirm, as those figures were significantly higher than I was expecting!
At least, with the prices I was likely to be seeking, it means they should shift rather quickly off my hands.........
