This is a nice collection. :thumbup: Which couplers did you choose? MTL 1015 or 1016?

Congratulations on the luxury problem - too many wagons and too few locomotives! :smile:
I used 1015 couplers..

Re: TT-Tracks

New hoppers almost ready for service. 20200922_new hoppers.jpg Weight added and couplers changed. Still need to add loads. I have realized that all of my loads need to be modified to sit higher. They currently sit too low in the cars. While working on these cars I briefly contemplated the thought th...

Re: AstroGoat and CaTTwoman's 2020 TT Scale Resolutions

We do have plans for another show this year, the Spud Valley Model Railroad Club is hosting their show next month in Fargo, ND, with ample spacing to allow for social distancing at the show. I hope you are watching the Covid status of ND. On a map I saw yesterday, ND was one of six states marked as...

2021 Shows in Greater Vancouver

Shows in 2021. Will things have settled down enough for shows to safely occur? I don't know, but here are my predictions. Western Rails 2021 - March. The first problem is the show committee. They were retiring after the 2020 event. I don't know if there is a new committee yet. Even if there is a new...

Re: TT-Tracks

Coupler wars. There is some confusion as to what the right coupler to use is. It is obvious that to recreate the true H P Products experience you have to use the old Baker couplers. When they came available, modelers started using Kadee 711 couplers. These are of course too big. Now modeler ares usi...

Re: TT-Tracks

After a long period of down time, I got active today. It was a coupler day, I assembled a 10 pair pack of Micro Trains 1015. This is why I needed the couplers. 20200906_c and o box car.jpg This car and others are the culmination of a four month saga that started in May. Back in early May I mailed a ...

Re: Model Boats

First of all, try to find tugboats and barges made by Noch, they are good for TT. Also, try to search some old models in 1:125, 1:128 and 1:130 scales. 1zcfi89.jpg 2mwwnde.jpg 2yjqxhv.jpg 2yxrfo4.jpg 14w7ih5.jpg The mine sweeper looks interesting.

Re: 2020 Shows in Greater Vancouver

Not to worry. I must admit that this is a great time to catch up on things that need doing but . . . Some days work is crazy stupid and I don't feel like working on trains at home. Customers! Fighting with Fedex - stop clearing our shipments - we won't pay your fees. Much fun - NOT! For a long time ...

Re: 2020 Shows in Greater Vancouver

The last two local shows I was watching have cancelled. The Nanaimo show was supposed be November 1. No way it could happen with crowds limited to 50 people. BottosCon is a gaming convention in November that I like to attend. With attendance limited to 50, there was no way for it to financially surv...

Bill - I'm planning to place another order probably next month, perhaps we could split the shipping?
Possibly. Let me know when and I will see what I can come up with.
