Re: Is there a market for US TT?

An aside on Rapido: Jason is a great guy. I never felt I was able to express my appreciation enough for featuring the SW1200 in the Rapido Newsletter (#49 if you're interested: https://www.rapidotrains.com/newsletter-archives/). Opened up a dialogue in which we discussed a few TT scale projects. He ...

Re: Is there a market for US TT?

... The fun for me is to see how many of you have done what you can with what you've got to build rolling stock, power models, lay track, etc. in this OBSCURE scale. Such efforts are truly UNIQUE... We share the same opinion, so relax. Obviously, I’ve miscommunicated and should expand on my thought...

Re: Is there a market for US TT?

I think I can answer the subject header of this topic with some insight given my experience. My opinion is offered grudgingly as I do not wish to rain on anybody’s parade, however; most of the proposed path forward in this discussion is already well trodden ground and been put into practise. So… Is ...

Re: Track discussion

TT scale modellers don't need track because TT scale modellers don't build layouts. If you want to show that there is a potential market here; build something.
