Find at Train Show

Postby Bill Dixon » Wed Apr 05, 2017 3:31 am

This last weekend was a busy weekend.
There was a small train show in Nanaimo BC that the store went to but I did not attend. I was at a gaming convention instead.

People in the local modelling community have gotten to know that I model TT-Scale.
A vendor at the show told my wife (who was there with the boss running the store tables at the show) that another vendor had a package of TT-Scale trucks for sale.
She brought them back for me.

There was an interesting mix of trucks in the package.

There were some good trucks:
a pair of cast brass six wheel heavy weight passenger trucks,
three pair of cast brass bettendorf freight trucks
one pair of heavy cast brass arch bar trucks
two pair of fine cast brass arch bar trucks.
- those seven sets make the whole package worth while.

As well there were folded metal rucks:
one pair six wheel tender trucks
one pair light weight passenger car trucks
one pair Alco FA trucks
six pair of freight trucks - maybe start using these on my Maisto conversions.
one pair and one side frame of another type of passenger truck
spare axles for the trucks
and a handful of geared axles.

Not bad find for a show I didn't attend.
Makes me think that there might be more TT-Scale buried somewhere on Vancouver Island.
Will have to see what shows up next month at the Victoria show.
