You should be able to obtain the Tomytec tram track when it is released from Japan Model Railways in Kamen Germany as he is the European Agent. However, Dapol have been selling the Tomytec trams and chassis so they might sell the track as well.
Kato Unitram track should be available from Gaugemaster and their retailers.
Osborns Models in Bideford also stocks some Tomix Finetrack and other items.
Hope this helps. No connection with any of the above just a satisfied customer.

Gaugemaster will be stocking the Kato track but they say just watch the website, Dapol are stocking the trams but after I ordered some they apologised and said there isn't enough demand for the normal Tomy track so don't hold your hopes up on them stocking the tram version.
Perfect timing for something I have in mind, now just to get hold of it. Will give Maurice a ring tomorrow.
Can anyone translate and tell me what they're actually selling? Looks to me like a double track oval, box set - but surely there must be other stuff in the range?

Is it worth investigating?

There's also parts for a tram stop. It is a close match to foamboard for height as shown in the pics below.
Fit the track spacers, that's kato track on the left.
Add the infill sections
finally the small infills between the rails, these will need gluing on as they slide around at the moment,
Foamcore board alongside for height.
What you get, all the infill sections so you need to buy the track too.

Im looking at making a tramway on my layout, i already have the Tomytec Toyama tram to start me off with.
After seeing this Tomy tram sections, would it be possible to use it with peco flexi?
Hi, I did a lot of research into this track system when I was going to build a modern era layout (I have decided to build an SNCF layout based in the 50's/60's now...). I estblished that it was not made for any other track system than the Tomix stuff. It is difficult but not impossible to obtain in the UK but I would advise that you find a UK dealer to assist you in obtaining the right bits for your layout.
That is not to say that you could clip the bits and make them fit Peco track. However the amount of work it would involve is significantly more than by buying the Tomix stuff.

Modemo do a few different prototypes, the latest (I think) being this
That's very nice, wouldn't look at all out of place in a European setting. Might even be a Siemens Combino looking at it, I'm not too hot on specific prototypes though. I must put tramway ideas to the back of my mind...

I managed to pick up a couple of the Linie-8 Combino Hiroshima trams (http://raicho.home.x...tram/trams.html, scroll down) from Modelmasters in Weston Super Mare about 5 years ago on an (expensive) impulse purchase and they've sat in their boxes ever since. Tested on a piece of flexitrack, one runs beautifully but one has a bit of a click and smells rather warm after some running so I'll investigate that later.
I'll be building an urban scene based loosely on the Croydon tramlink, although quite what travelcard zone Hiroshima is in I'm not sure.
