[[4 Months ago... Supposedly <<frown>>]]
I have had them in-hand since late last year... along with initial decals... but have NOT managed to get them up on the TT-West site.

Update: The hoppers are now orderable on http://www.tt-west-.com
These are the TiTan TT flat kits... with TT-West decals included.

Yay! Richard are there multiple number combinations on the decal sheets? And if so, how many?

The TT-West decals have a primary car number... based on the prototype number series,
and a semi-random 'number jumble', which contains the first two digits of a prototype series, followed by a bunch of extra digits.

Both car numbers (usually 9-inch...) for the car side, and 4-inch end numbers are included, and the jumble includes every digit at least once.

The modeler would combine the first two digits of the jumble with the trailing three digits of their choice. It was intended that groups of three adjacent digits could be used to reduce decal splicing, but individual digits can be used to exactly match a specific car. Obviously, the digits can also be used to change one or more digits of the primary car number...

Here is the C&O 'Progress' example.

Neat. I may have missed it, but what trucks go best with these kits?

I believe the trucks are still in development.

Sorry about the late update & replies. Have been having MAJOR computer/internet problems but, seems to be finally working again.

Firstly - JP, thanks for the photo /drawings - much better than what I've managed to do so far with the explanations & instructions.

Truck update. I'm off to the toolmakers again this week-end to see the latest round of test shots. The replacement parts for the block arrived from China last week. The other repairs have been done so, I'm hopeful, that this time everything is AOK.

I'm also hoping the corrections to the alternate ends for the hopper cars will be done soon.
