I've just found the small train seen in the "Castle in the Sky".
-> Sankei MK07-12


Maybe it could be powered with Tomytec TM-TR02 chassis.
Very tempting.


Wanted items (only in their original box):

In the book of original concept drawings for Spirited Away there is a drawing of a train that delivers coal to the bath house and it is very similar to this one.  Once I do the DMU I think one of these is next.

Early days.  I got the kit for the bath house just before Christmas and I have decided to start to assemble it.  This is the key building for the layout as its a bit like a castle and everything relates to its size and location.  This is the beginning of the middle third of the building, and it is a very detailed and "cut true" model.  If anything over engineered but its absolutely square and true.

My plan is to fully illuminate the buildings so I will need to start adding LEDs and wiring.



For those interested in the building range this might be of interest

While I am waiting for paint to dry I have been slowly building up the bath house.  It is one of the best paper kits I have ever built and the quality of the paper and card is superb.  the tapes are to remind me where to add the LED lighting.  It will have arround 40 LEDs when complete.

I have not seen one.  They do the airships from the same film so possibly but not seen here.
