Yup, but it’s tiny at 1:120 scale. So you have to wave it really hard, preferably standing on a podium, making ample arm gestures and cheering loudly.

Ah, so I should make an Haggis of myself at the show to gather attention to TT scale? :lol:


To fly a TT flag properly, you really need TT scale wind.

It is worth mentioning, that this will be the first TT scale display that we have done with just North American proto equipment, no un-modified non-North American outline equipment at this show for us this time.

Thanks.

It is kinda nice to return to "home turf", as this is the same place that hosted the 2013 National Train Show.
The kids are excited to go, and Natasha is grumpily taking her bath as we speak.

Well, over an hour in and all is well, aside from one of my converted BTTB locos failing during its first run.
Videos to be posted soon.
