TT article in NYCSHS Modeler’s E-zine

Postby Bernd » Tue Dec 05, 2017 9:35 am

A modeling friend of mine sent me these links to an article in the New York Central Historical Societies E-zine. It's a two part article.

Article #1 : https://nycshs.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/nycm_4q2012.pdf

Article #2 : https://nycshs.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/nycm_2q_2013.pdf

Enjoy.

To sum up the article, it is about a modeler and his father's collection of TT scale. It also covers some of the history of TT scale and some of the things that "could have been" for TT scale, such as early knuckle couplers that actually operated.

Not a problem. By the way, the article starts on page 26, if that helps any.

Awesome!

I love the old articles on TT scale that deal with it in its "heyday", partially because I love the older equipment so much.
