Bill, you mentioned Roco, Auhagen and Viessman twice in the "What equipment is available?" section

I would mention my favorite supplier of RTR NA-TT models: www.zeuke-tt.com

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


I will see if I can find a better copy of my N-TT-HO F-unit photo, as that might help here.

I'm starting to think that 2 pamphlets may be better than 1. Mainly because they address two separate things. Mine addresses the "ok I like it, how/where do I get it?" while Bill's is more suitable to people who want to do some homework/learning/research before they commit. While Bill's version also contains info on where to acquire models, a person has to look for it. I can easily see having both versions with me at a show and handing both to people - "here's a quick how/where/why, and here's some detail you may be interested in".

Also, I think they're both very good and trying to combine them into 1 will just end up with something bastardized.

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

May be, you find somebody who can lend you the respective models for taking the photo.

This may also be a good idea!

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:

That's true. The most common European size is A4 standard—297 mm × 210 mm (11 2/3 inches × 8 1/4 inches).

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.

To be more correct:
On page 2, the last 7 lines of the 3rd column appear again as the first 7 lines of the 4th column.

Additionally, I've found some inconsistency in the spelling of "e-bay".

And in America H0 should be scale 1 : 87.1 (NMRA S-1.2).

I think for an introductory pamphlet, 1 : 87 is quite adequate - the 87.1 seems unnecessarily precise and out of sync with the round numbers of TT and N. I doubt that any H0 modelers will panic over having built to the (slightly) wrong scale all their lives on the basis of our pamphlet!

I agree that having both pamphlets makes sense.
