Scale Rails SP 0-6-0 redetailing

I have two brass Scale Rails TT scale SP prototype 0-6-0 switch engines I intend to upgrade with brass (Christoph?) detail parts. If I go to the trouble to redetail, I'm wondering: should I also consider repowering these locos with more contemporary (efficient, powerful?) motors and drives. Any thou...

Re: DIECAST TT scale trucks, tractors cars

Arseny, I would need metal models of trucks, cars or other vehicular equipment in TT scale. I located a web site called Fairfield Collectibles that specializes in this field. According to Fairfield diecast models are metal, but their business in selling these models includes some that are made of re...

DIECAST TT scale trucks, tractors cars

Looking to the forum for some help. What are known sources for available DIECAST vehicles as noted above? I would like to obtain a few in the range from 1930's -- 1960's, preferably north american or Russian vehicles. :wave:

Re: Is there a market for US TT?

Only for the guy everyone sends their money to. It's foolhardy at best to place much credence in what folks at train shows assure you will sell like hotcakes.

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.
