Another detail part:

\wheel Stops. Sized to fit on the Bedding track rail head.
I have also started experimenting with painting the rail. Still a long way to go get it right.

That is indeed an interesting build. Would he be willing to do some more?
Unknown at this time. He is dabbling in kit production.
A lot depends on how well the kit goes together. Will post picture as I get to the kit.

Re: TT-Tracks

One of the first projects of the new year is this kit:
20210118_Snow Plow Kit.jpg
The kits says N-Scale but it is actually TT-Scale.
One of our customers is working on making these kits for N-Scale. I asked him to make one for me in TT-Scale and he did.
Going to be an interesting build.

Re: TT-Tracks

Many good displays, much good time, and almost enough beer.<G> 2021 is not shaping up to be much better, but we can hope. We can't get together for a 3B session (beer, burger and bs) b...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

My eyeballs are not calibrated to 10ths of a millimeter!!! I can usually spot the difference between 36in and 33in wheels... but not 34in (7.2mm) and 33in (7.0) mm. AFAIK... These are the same wheels used on MTB tank and 3-bay hopper cars. (With few or no complaints...) I never thought to check the...

So far, so good.

Why are 7.2mm wheels used? Because they are available? The own exchange to 7.0mm RP25 is done quickly.
7mm is close to a scale 33" wheel set so would be the right size to use.

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

OK guys, The difference in height is realy minimal, see picture. It is more the impression that the 2-bay hopper is looking more agile more detailed. The trays of the MTB hopper are more massive. The diameter of the wheels are equal: 7,2mm. So with no further comment, I will release the hopper for ...
