Near TT scale items.

Near TT scale items.

Postby AstroGoat760 » Sun Sep 02, 2012 12:18 am

This thread is for items that are near TT scale that with a little work, could work for a layout, or could be the basis of TT scale models.

The first item on this list is the Power Trains series by Jakks Pacific. Their passenger train set has car bodies that are almost spot-on for height and width for TT scale, with length being short, much like O-27 cars compared to O scale. It would be possible to splice two Jakks Pacific cars together for length, and replace the dummy trucks with real ones to come up with a rough facsimile of some of the modern passenger cars used by Amtrak. The details, such as windows and such are just stickers, so redoing them with decals and scribe work is feasible.

Here is the Jakks Pacific "Bullet Train" dummy engine and passenger car compared to an HP E-7:

I am not sure if this is of interest of anyone, but I figured that I would put this out there.
