Very first thing I see: http://www.scalatt.it/casello%20FS%20in ... a%20TT.htm

And there's another paper kit up there for the station Milano Nord Affori.

This is VERY worth a look, though: http://www.scalatt.it/E%20424%20in%20scala%20TT.htm

Thanks for sharing this, Arseny - great site!

I think very, very small. Smaller than in the US, for sure.

Though I do recall in the 1990s hearing about an Italian micro-company making (or planning) some brass locos (or kits)... but I never saw any photos of those, if indeed they were made.

But there are 187 users registered on that forum. Not bad.

Arseny,

Thanks for the link to Italian TT. I travelled in Italy in 1968, and was hauled around the country by a number of E324's. Great looking (and performing) locomotives! The TT model is beautiful. I'd love to see it painted up and running on a large TT layout hauling a long passenger consist. When I was in Italy there were still a good number of steam locomotives running arouond, especially in southern Italy and Sicily, which made things all the more interesting. While I prefer steam for my Northamerican trains I really enjoyed seeing all the great looking electric locomotives in Italy and Switzerland.

I like the new Tillig passenger car, Italian. You can see close-ups on p. 35 of their catalog:

I'm thinking of getting a few because they are reminiscent of Pullmans here in the U.S. (apparently Pullman manufactured them for Italy).

Thanks... I just received email notification from someplace in Germany that they just came into stock; up until now nobody had it.
