TV models and Railway Series in Yokohama museums

Several TV series models used throughout the New Series have gone on display in Yokohama, Japan.

The forms of Edward, Gordon, Henry and Thomas with Annie and Clarabel are currently placed in the Hara Model Railway Museum from today alongside others including Oliver, Salty and five of the Narrow Gauge Engines.
Until April 7th, the nine day exhibition of the models are part of the museum's spring collaboration. A video of Thomas and his coaches was uploaded onto YouTube earlier this week.

From April 26th to May 6th, Koyto's Railway Series Painting Exhibition from 2013 will return, instead nearby in the Sogo Museum of Art, hosted by Hara.

Presenting the many illustrations of the books and a video gallery, more of the TV models are to appear.


  1. What I don't get is why aren't they over here in England where they should be

    1. Who says they should be? Thomas and Friends has a worldwide following, so they should be taken to wherever the demand for them happens to be.

      Besides, have you seen the models that ARE on display at Drayton Manor? I'm shocked that HiT haven't...

  2. Well, Thomas is popular in Japan due to the popularity of railways in Japan.
