Re: 2021 Shows in Greater Vancouver

:( PNE could have a *bit* of understanding, considering the situation of the world... b*****s Seriously. Apparently punishing customers is their business strategy. The PNE is in a rock and a hard place situation. It is a city owned facility so it is not eligible for the various Covid relief grants....

Re: KM1 System 7 DCC Controller

As you may have found already the information links offered by KM1 yield zero results. Perhaps you can ask Eurorail Hobbies - it's listed on their web site. Do you plan to use it with the Z21 through the sniff bus? Or use it as a booster? 20 volts @ 7 amps. Looks like it's meant for large scales. -...

Re: TT-Tracks

I do not have enough loose Bedding track to make a circle.
Doing this will give me a big oval to test TT-Scale equipment on as well as an oval to test HO Scale equipment I work on for customers.

I have the English manual for rhe Intellibox and was able to get the KM1 working with it, but I need the first few pages that explain th...

Re: TT-Tracks

I need a set of track to test TT Scale stuff on without setting up modules. I have started modifying some Kato HO scale Unitrack by adding g a third rail. I hope to have a 21.5" radius oval when I am finished. 20210504_Dual Gauge Kato Track.jpg I start by gluing the rail in place then drill hol...

Layout Gift

As I am known to the local community as the TT Guy, TT-Scale items come to me. 20210430_173438.jpg This 3' x 5' TT Scale layout came to me today. 20210430_173756.jpg 20210430_173757.jpg 20210430_173800.jpg It uses Rokal track and the wildest mixture of scales for people and structures. Most if not a...

Re: eBay Estate - TT

I purchased a few items from this estate. Some at a good price. Some I Wanted, I paid a bit more than I normally would. One or two items I placed a cheap bid on and got. Have a fleet of logging cars to prepare. Some nice MOW cars and a few others. I chased after and purchased two flat cars, a 42' an...

Re: TT-Tracks

The TT-Tracks.org web site needs to find a new home.
The Free Webspace provided by Telus for the last few decades, is going away the end of May.
I'll see what I can find for a free no ad web host, or a low cost one if I have to pay for it.

Re: 2021 Shows in Greater Vancouver

It is official, VTE 2021 is cancelled. It may have been doable but the PNE where the event is held has a no refund policy. If you pay ans then cancel your event, you don't get your money back. Losing the deposit would kill the show. So now hoping for 2022. Still no word on the last possible show thi...

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.
