Given the relative lack of interest in TT scale in N. America, it's difficult to imagine anyone seriously claiming copyright infringement. If there's no money to be made in marketing TT trains then surely there is no money to be made in distributing CDs or PDFs of a defunct publication about TT scale. And money is the main reason for copyright.

If copyright didn't exist, everyone would be able to make copies of each new creative work without the creator's permission. But because it does, creators get to decide whether or not their creative works get distributed, and how they get distributed. And if lots of people want copies of the work, the creator can make people pay to own those copies.

The purpose of copyright, then, is to create mechanisms for creators to control ownership of expressive works, so they can receive payment for their works.
