When you consider how many thousands of people worldwide read the Rapido newsletter, it is an incredible free plug for TT-Scale. I doubt that half of the Rapido newsletter readers knew about TT-Scale before this newsletter.

And out of those thousands that read the article, hundreds went online and checked out what tt scale is all about. Maybe twenty or thirty might decide too give it a try and that's a good thing.

It's very pity that he didn't mention European TT and the fact that TT is popular in Germany, East Europe and Russia.
So we can get ready-to-use rails, some buildings and autos, and power units for the locomotives. And also can model European and Russian prototypes, if we want...

Remember, his focus is Canadian model railways. A non-Canadian prototype would not have been considered for the newsletter. Also, he did that article as a favor to me and I have an interest in marketing a specific product.

It's still neat to get the recognition. This could potentially open the door for a resurgence of TT-scale modeling, and product development for the market here in North America.

I only wish I could've gotten further than the preliminary design stage of the locomotive I wanted to do. I knew that it wasn't going to be a cake walk, but there are so many variables to consider during product development that it could, and did get overwhelming. The cool thing is, I have since been working on a DIY CNC router which could potentially help in bringing some of the ideas I have to life. The main structure has been completed. I still need to add motors and lead screws, but it is progressing nicely, though slowly. I really like and admire the creativity used, and process that Rob M has taken in bringing his ideas to fruition, and like to follow a similar path at some point.
