Welcome to the Tomix / EasyTrolley Modelers' Site!
With T-Trak for Trolleys
This website is a repository for information in English about the Tomix model railway product line of Tomy of Japan. It has no commercial connection to Tomy or Tomix, and exists for the benefit of railway modelers who are interested in, or are using, Tomix products. All aspects are included -- trains, track, track designs, control systems, buildings, Tomytec, etc.
Tomy only sells this product to the Japanese market, so almost all information is in Japanese. Therefore it can be a challenge to find out about it, to figure out how to get it, and to just figure it out! Tomix turns out to be a well designed, quality product line. Its competitor Kato, with its Unitrack products, is better known outside of Japan, with export distribution and marketing in place.
The EasyTrolley / EasyTram concept was developed to help more people to easily model street railways, both at home and collectively at conventions and "meets." You don't even need to build and wire a module! It uses Tomix products to create versatile and realistic, tight-radius street railway trackage for N-gauge model trolleys and trams.
For those who want to build and scenic modules, T-Trak for Trolleys presents designs and concepts for specialized T-Trak modules, which can be used together with ordinary T-Trak modules, to create layouts with features specific to modeling trolleys, streetcars or trams. Tomix track is utilized for this purpose.
A companion Tomix group exists at groups.yahoo.com/group/Tomix for discussion purposes. There is a similar group (groups.yahoo.com/group/KatoUnitrack) for Kato Unitrack users. Some EasyTrolley discussion also occurs at the groups.yahoo.com/group/nscaletraction discussion group.
