Gamer Looking for TT Scale.

Gamer Looking for TT Scale.

Postby DMacIntyre » Wed Nov 11, 2015 1:31 pm

Hello All,
Yes it is true I am a gamer, and looking for a resource of TT scale rolling stock and the like. Right now I am looking for terrain pieces, that is they do not have to look pretty or actually function, they will just add "the Look" to the table.
In the future, I would like to add an operating train to a table, but that is the future!
If any of you have items you cannot use, for any reason, I would appreciate a heads up!
I am located in the USA!
Thanks!

Hello Dmac!
Can I ask what era you're gaming in, and what you're looking for- types of rolling stock, scenery items, etc? I've always heard that 15mm accessories are close to TT but I never really checked it out.

I have some "15mm" jeeps and trucks, they are 1:100 in fact, but nevertheless can work.

Hey Guys!
WWII, France 1944 specifically. Vintage looking rolling stock, doesn't have to be exact. I game in 15mm and most gamers use HO scale which is too large. I have a set of resin cast TT track and one refer car I found on eBay, but the $26 with shipping puts that far to high for me to do what I want.
There is a campaign I would like to do that features a rail yard, so that is the reason I am looking to stock up on stock so to speak!
Flames of War makes some armored WWI trains but, again, their prices for a single car/engine is out of my league!

You want to look at Era II German trains which there are a bunch of (most made by Tillig). http://www.eurotrainhobby.com/tt-scale/c105

I should say http://www.eurotrainhobby.com/freight-cars-ii-tt/c111 - for cars
and http://www.eurotrainhobby.com/track-system-tt/c173 - for tracks

P.S. I like Flames of War's figures too.

The GMC truck beyond the crossing is 15mm.

Ok, this caught my attention quite fast. I've done some resin cast TT scale tie strips. Any chance of getting a picture of that resin track? I'm curious.

Sure Bernd,
Right now I have it all primed in flat brown. . . That is the Tillig car I got on eBay.

Arseny,
Though the cost may be prohibitive, Flames of War makes civilian figures, 9-10 in a blister. They fit in anywhere from 1930-1950 ish. Like your train set up!
Both My father and grandfather worked for the Michigan Central/New York Central, PennCentral RR. My Dad was a Baggageman/Yardman, My grandfather was a conductor. My brother and I spent a lot of summer afternoons in the yard at the depot in Detroit Michigan, sometimes we would ride the switch engines while trains were set up.

That reefer looks more like an English version, Tri-ang. Especially the couplers.
