My favorite TT shop in Berlin is Michas Bahnhof at Nürnberger Straße 24a, see

http://www.michas-bahnhof.de/

It's in walking distance from S-Bahn station Zoologischer Garten.

In the Charlottenburg District there is Modellbahnen am Mierendorpffplatz...
http://www.modellbahnen-am-mierendorffplatz.de
Located right above Mierendorpffplatz station on the U7 line...

A well stocked store... But not a lot of TT...
An inquiry will point you to several hidden (in plain sight) drawers of TT items.

A California friend attending the same technical meeting last month... dropped EUR 500 on rare vintage N-scale stuff!

I know the shop at Mierendorffplatz, too. However, as with some other shops, there is indeed not much TT stuff. Michas Bahnhof has a lot of TT. At a glance, the shop might looks slightly rubbish, but it is really worth a visit. In the main room accross the counter, there is a lot of used stuff from different scales. In the back part of the room, on the right hand side, there are two display cabinets with TT models on several levels. One cabinet is for engines, the other for cars. Most of the rolling stock is German prototype, however. Beside Tillig, they usually also have some rather rare models from small batch manufacturers.

Gentlemen, thank you. I've saved Michas Bahnhof and Modellbahnen on my map and will schedule a visit.

Joe, do you already know the days of your visit? Maybe, there will be a chance for a short meet.

Oh, there's not much time left. Since I have quite a dense working schedule next week, Saturday might be the only chance to travel to Berlin. When will you be leaving on Saturday?
