Toy Idea: STAR TRAK - The train set of the future
Star Trak can be summed up like this: Model trains and stations that look futuristic like spaceships and have passengers in astronaut space suits and alien and robot passengers.
Some of the trains are interstellar space trains that travel between planets and some are trains that travel between stations on alien planets, for example the translunar express travelling from Tranquility station.
Then you have cargo trains carrying exotic cargo like uranium ore from pluto.
You could also have troop trains carrying space infantry to conflicts on alien worlds and alien animals in space Travelling Circus trains and a black hole train for entering the ultimate train tunnel (Maybe these space trains travel through worm hole tunnels).
Infact, and I think this is a novel twist, you could even have gangs of alien space train robbers who try and rob the trains and Space Transport Police to catch them; thats something that Hornby never thought of.
Branching out - If this idea proves succesful, you could also branch out into space ports; space planes; space boats (for travelling on alien seas); star cars, space motorways, space hotels for weary space travellers to rest in and other futuristic transport sets.
Added feature: Oh and perhaps boxes could come with an interstellar passport or interstellar train tickets so that you too could be a passenger on a space train.
Design note: One of the 'A's in 'STAR TRAK' could look like train tracks going off into the distance.
