Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

So that's why some couplers stick out more than others. You live and learn. But isn't a working cushion underframe a bit superfluous for a TT scale car?

Re: 2021 Shows in Greater Vancouver

Here in the UK I've had three shows cancelled this year for my TT layout. But on the plus side I've been invited back to two of them for 2022.

Well, in the case of Astrazeneca, which we were told is about 70% effective, maybe you should care 30%!

Re: What's on the bench?

There's a one-page article in one of the 2016 issues titled 'Whatever happened to TT scale?". It was really a look at the demise of the old manufacturers, with no mention of any present-day suppliers of American TT, or of this forum, so not much research done there.

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

Roofwalks were already being phased out in the late 60s. During the 70s there were also a number of 'modernised' boxcars which had their roofwalks removed and their ladders and brakewheels lowered. So you could quite reasonably have boxcars from the late 60s onwards with no roofwalks. Having said th...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

Anything without roofwalks is OK by me. (That is, if deliveries to the UK ever start again.) I haven't much of a clue about the finer details.

Re: What's on the bench?

Yes he is just updating the bodies (though sometimes he uses Romford wheels or the occasional etched chassis), though going by some of his posts he does have to take chunks off the Tri-ang magnets or gouge bits out of the bodies sometimes. He is a big Tri-ang enthusiast but personally I much prefer ...

Re: What's on the bench?

There's one guy in particular who likes to fit 3D printed bodies onto Tri-ang chassis, so producing a variety of British locos on just two chassis variants. Usually he even sticks to the Tri-ang motors and wheels - just shows there's still a lot of life in them. Not that it's a route I'd go down mys...
