    I'm collecting Transforming trains. I already know of all the Transformers brand ones (Rail Racer, Rail Racer, and Raiden), but I'm sure there are others in different brands. Does anyone know?

    You may know about these already, but if not, be sure to stop by the Brave Thread for a plethora of trainy goodness.

    Ultra Raker from Exkiser is a good one. Most of Might Gaine is based around a train theme (SF's awesome pics of MG are here). Liner Dagwon is cool too.

    The biggest train figure you'll find is Webdiver Gradion, one of my favorite figures outside of Transformers and still Takara made.

    If you don't mind Power Ranger toys, the Power Ranger Turbo Rescue has a huge train robot.

    There is the HO gauge Transformers train set that was put out in the 80's. Were you aware of that?

    Do you have a Sixliner or an Astrotrain? Both are nice little trains.

    For something really old, check out the series Sasuraiger. The main mecha, Batrain, came over to the US as part of the Converters line - http://www.toyarchive.com/Convertors/Convertors.html that brought over many transforming toy designs in the 80s in a bid to compete with the big dogs, Transformers and Gobots.

    Also, I have to second the recommendation of Hikarian. Unless you mind some of your trains being SD cutesy.
