Re: Piko 55017 SmartControl Light Basic set

I own the SmartControl Light hand controller but not the associated SmartBox. Instead of the SmartBox, the SmartController throttle is sold with the Digikeijs DR5000 command station as a package from Iron Planet Hobbies in the U.S. The SmartControl uses the Loconet connections. I have used the Smart...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

My point in general is, why would a newcomer buy freight cars if there is no locomotive to purchase at that time? For N American modelers the question is also greater: Why would *anyone* buy TT freight cars or passenger coaches (also non-existent) if no locomotive is available? During the last ten ...

Re: Hornby 2022/23

It's the other way around. I think. And this may tend to go off topic. Basic, 'toy', trains (BTTB, American Flyer, Lionel, Tomix,et al) have always used bogie mounted couplers to cope with tight curves of the typical ovals, especially with longer stock such as passenger coaches. Couplers mounted on ...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

Were Cotton Belt locomotives used together with SP locomotives? Could you have a F7A and B from SP followed by a Cotton Belt F7A? Rob Perhaps these links answer your questions. https://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/13/t/230810.aspx http://espee.railfan.net/sswf07ab.html I don't know about it myself. -Terry C

Re: Hornby 2022/23

The twits tariffed it as 'Tricycle' instead of a train set. Suspect it was deliberate to collect some revenue, rather than an honest mistake. I had the 'trycycle' tariff applied once for a model locomotive. Seems to be a standard variety classification. Don't expect a full refund. Also, full duty w...

Re: Hornby 2022/23

We in TT are thinking that Hornby will spur interest in TT. But what if TT sales do not meet Hornby's expectations? Some reaction against Hornby TT is showing up, like the videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKKQCjkzeuk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E_gl6i7bPo However, the videos seem to...
