The Tomix Modelers' 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 targets and sells this product to the Japanese market, so almost all information is in Japanese, although recently it has entered into agreements with, and made products for, U.S. and European distributors. Tomix is a well designed, quality product line. Its competitor Kato, with its Unitrack products, is better known outside of Japan, with stronger export distribution and marketing in place.

EasyTrolley / EasyTram is a concept I 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.

T-Trak for Trolleys presents designs and concepts for specialized T-Trak modules for those who want to build and scenic modules. These can be used together with ordinary T-Trak modules to create layouts with features specific to modeling trolleys, streetcars or trams. Tomix track is incorporated for this purpose.

A companion Tomix discussion group exists at groups.yahoo.com/group/Tomix. 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.

For additional information on N-gauge model trolleys, see the N-Trolleys website at www.trainweb.org/n-trolleys/.
