A new pamphlet

I think, taking one photo of a locomotive and printing it in different sizes is not a good idea. It looks like poeple want to hide something.
In my opinion, it would be better to find equivalent locomotives in all three scales and putting them beside each other in one photo. It also makes the differences in details more obvious.

Yes, keep the introductory info as simple as possible. What it is and where to obtain equipment are essential. Demonstrating the relative size to HO and N scale equipment is equally important.....as all are aware, in North America, many don't even know that TT scale exists!! Good job on the proposed pamphlet, ConducTTor!!

The pamphlet is a great idea. However, the top picture of track is actualy kato n unitrack. You might want to substitute that with tillig bedding track which uses kato railjoiners.

I agree with this. I just don't have the different scale locomotives.

The picture is taken directly from Tillig's site :)

I wouldn't recommend Tillig bedding track to anybody, just because the turnouts are so, so, oh I don't want to say. And the Kuehn start set track is available from Zeuke. But you can't please everybody so I have no complaints. Anything that leads into TT is worthwhile.

I didn't take the opportunity to examine Bill Dixon's version of a new brochure, but it uses legal size paper instead of 81/2 x 11 inch. It likely has more detailed useful information so is a worthwhile companion handout.

Isn't 8.5 by 11 the standard size of paper? What's "legal" size?

Legal size is 8 1/2 x 14.
Here is a copy of my new handout.
The pictures could be better but they give you a good idea of what I am trying to do.
The full sized SW900 and box car will give the reader a good idea of the actual size of TT-Scale equipment.

As I know, "legal" size is 8.5" × 14" = 215.9 mm × 355.6 mm

The U.S., Canada and Mexico use a different system of paper sizes compared to the rest of the world. The current standard sizes are unique to that continent. :lol:

Bill - That is a great summary of the important aspects of TT scale, with enough detail to answer most questions.
I hope you and Alex can get together on a common "official" handout.
