What are "Yandex" services? Each time I try to do a search for Yandex, I keep getting a search result of "Did you mean Spandex?", with some rather disturbing images of people who are too fat for spandex shown. I hate auto-correct.

Yandex is Russian search engine. "Russian Google" :wink:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yandex

It is the largest search engine in the Russian Internet market, having over 64%, and the 5th largest search engine worldwide.

Narod.ru is a file storage service, it belongs to Yandex company.

Funny. I am reading that as "Blacksmith - Warehouse".

So I assume that you are going to be working on a TT scale red light district?

And I thought our idea of a TT scale "Hooters" was outlandish.

We found some more sources of cardstock buildings that can be resized to TT scale.

The state of Illinois has a website dedicated to HO scale cardstock models of several buildings that are relevant to the late Abraham Lincoln, as well as some buildings that are part of their "Build Your Own Mainstreet" project, that would work on many North American TT layouts.

Just resize the PDF printouts to 73% to convert them from HO to TT.

Here are two examples of the kits available for free from http://www.illinois.gov/ihpa/Preserve/P ... treet.aspx :

The left most model is of the Thomas Lincoln Cabin, the middle is of a modified version of the Thomas Lincoln Cabin that would work nicely as a camp cabin (more will be made for the Camp Crystal Lake module.) The right most model is the beginnings of the Berry Lincoln Store.

Another site with re-scalable (originals in British OO scale) buildings to print out, mostly houses, many look quite suitable for US prototypes - http://modelrailroadlayoutsandscenery.c ... enery.html - each is $10, but cheaper in groups. And there's a note that all 24 are on sale as a bundle until midnight tonight for $75, seems like quite a deal if you need a bunch.
