    While rummaging through my dad's old stuff, I came across 2 bullet train sets. They were marked for N scale, and the company appeared to be:

    Aroura

    The train is green and labled as set 2, I believe. Can anyone tell me what these are??

    Happy Railroading!!

    would love to, but I have only seen one in person, and that was when I was 8 (?).

    If I see another I will post it, or E Mail you.

    Happy Railroading!!

    The Japanese Bullet Train is made by Kato and Tomix in several versions. Aurora was one of the early names in N. Could well be a Tomix, or an earlier incarnation of them. Doug Coster has a page that may be of interest with plenty of links to Japanese models, etc. He is a supplier of Japanese outline here in Australia and is well versed in N. I suggest you send as much detail to him - he could possibly be of help. His email link is at the bottom of the page.
