Hats off to the Germans. If I wasn't scared of my wife murdering me I'd say the hell with the money and see if I could get one. Dunno, maybe I do it anyway :thinking:

This in the past has never been a problem to me but now I am thinking more like scaro and marquette and seeing the need for more accurate scale items. However the main thing is that American TT is still moving in the right direction. Massive thanks to all who are contributing their skills to this meteoric rise in the scale, from the humblest trucks to the SD45 all is very very good just now and all your efforts are very greatly appreciated


It is only a test track.
More realistic trackwork can be used for the layouts. Someone mentioned here EW1 turnouts from Tillig - well, I'd suggest forget the EW1 and use EW3 instead (or at least EW2 if you don't have space for EW3) and don't forget to paint the sides of the rails rusty brown, it helps a lot.
Better (and more expensive) trackwork can be found at http://www.ttfiligran.de/ Unfortunately only in German, but try to click through their www page.
They make the best trackwork I have ever seen in TT. They use Code60 rails (height 1.5 mm). Check their turnout EW 1855-1:8

I didn't look that close yet Alex I am not really familiar with tillig drives but it has all the looks of being adapted units. I did not get any instructions for building it as yet so do not really know the finer details. I could take some pictures of the parts for you if that helps

So do these come with drives and "everything" included except assembly? If so, considering the cost of things in Germany, that price might not be out of range. Tom Dempsey
