Ebay Oddity

Postby areibel » Thu Jul 16, 2015 5:19 pm

I was looking at this auction-
http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-pcs-of-TT-sca ... 2c9e45480f
Is it really TT or N? I don't remember seeing that style of caboose from Berliner or Tillig or anyone else?

Look at the couplers. They do not look like TT ones. I suppose they are in N scale

Those couplers look like some of the older European HO scale cars that I have, along with the wheels as well.

Without some frame of size reference, it is hard to tell if these are HO/OO/TT/N cars.

By the size of the fingers in one of the pics, I'd say N.

I didn't look at all of the pictures well enough, but I think you are right about them being N scale.

It looks like a Rokal. The couplers were replaced for H0 couplers.

The seller says that she measured the gauge and that it was 12mm.
She is trying to help her friend to sell his heritage.

It could be Rokal, the caboose could be Maisto (or something like that).

She sells also regular Zeuke wagons, should place them on same track and compare them.

I did not know that WESA produced any models of the American prototypes. I was sure they produced only Swiss locomotives and cars
