All

I have to apologize to Ian for NOT getting the hoppers listed on TT-West...
As some of you know.. my progress in TT-stuff since November has been non-existent due to some external issues... and a few of my own doing.

"The road to hell is paved with good intentions..." <<sigh>>

My current plan is to have them up on http://www.tt-west.com mid-week...
The cars bodies and decals are ready to go (and have been since VTE)...

TiTan TT 101: AAR 2bay Hopper STD Kit+ Decal (less t/c) SLP USD $24.95
Decal choice: ATSF, B&O Billboard, CP (as-built & script) or tbd-voucher
TiTan TT 102: AAR 2bay Hopper ALT Kit+ Decal (less t/c) SLP USD $24.95
Decal Choice: C&O (as-built & Progress) , ATSF, or tbd-voucher

You can contact me off list if you have any questions;
and mention TT-Nut for a discount.

Boy can I relate to that.
December was a Bad month and January not much better.
However interest in modelling is stirring again so we will see what I can get done for Western rails.

BTW are you ever going to send me an invoice for those cars you delivered at VTE?

Ah, the joys of manufacturing!!!!!

Only just started on the production run for the trucks when the tool failed. :wall: :wall:

There was a spring failure on one of the lifter springs that create the holes in the axle boxes. With the lifter still in place, not retracted, when the core dropped it chipped the top edge, creating a flash area over the top edge of the truck. Apparently, it is not a hard fix but, it will take a week or so to get in stronger springs so it doesn't happen again.

Still, it's only been 18 months since I first started this project and everybody knows you can't rush things. After all, it is only a hobby.

Yeah, I know. It's just a bit frustrating. After 5 die trails, following each modification and then fails when we finally get it correct. That's life.

I have got a couple of questions from one member of the Danish NA-TT society.
I tried to answer by pictures. The pictures could help others too.

The first was about the difference between AAR Standard and Alternative Standard.

The second was about the location of the small parts on the model.
