<< the Harz (Mountains in the middle of Germany). >> On my bucket list.

TTf - 5mm - that's getting small!

I have sent Model Railroader an email with a link to my article on Naples sTreeT and pointing out that American TT is alive and well. I won't hold my breath but you never know - there's an outside chance they may publish it and generate a bit more interest in the scale!

I was a very lucky boy to get Naples Street featured in the July issue of Continental Modeller here in the UK. I will be taking it on its first outing, a week on Sunday (1 July) to the NCAM meeting in Hampsthwaite near Harrogate.

First show for Naples sTreeT today, a small US-themed show where the layout was very well received. Two young lads particularly enjoyed taking over the controls and doing a bit of switching.
Everybody said how they love TT because it's just right - but unfortunately I can't see any of them actually taking it up.
As things are, no more shows booked until next March.
