Regarding the last video that I posted about the Zueke TT Hopper cars, I am not entirely satisfied with the video. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions for a redo?

I think that I will redo the video on the 3-bay hoppers rather soon as I need the practice, and TT scale can use the video.

Two videos were shot today, the first is a video introducing the Rokal Union Pacific set, and the second is simply a "running video".

Very nice. It looks huge next to the SW1200.

Considering that the SW1200 is a fairly small loco in real life, especially compared to the GP 38-2 and the F-3, there is a definite difference in size.

I will have to break out the measuring tools to see how far off the Rokal equipment is.

Regardless, I am pleased with the set thus far, aside from needing to figure out how I will swap the wheels out for thinner flanges, especially on the powered loco.

Here are a few of my recently purchased building kits that will be used on my layout:
Some are N scale, whilst others are HO, modifications, as needed will be done to allow the usage of the structures on the layout.

Rokal models were also a bit bigger as the standard TT models, the reduction scale was closer to the UK 3 mm scale models. Additionally, especially by the end of production, the reduction scale was different for each new model. Just the 12 mm gauge was unified.
