Re: Christoph TT Models

I do, Sort of! I can't remember if this one came from Larry Sayre or Garn Smith, but it's not complete. In the pictures it's kinda just set together, but it gives the idea of what a finished one would look like and in one of the pics I put in a Lionel General for scale. I've looked at putting it tog...

Re: Christoph TT Models

That problem with the trucks must be an old one. I remember talking to Larry Sayre probably 30 years ago, he remembered when they were new and told me then that the trucks "break if you look at them"!

Re: The identification thread

On a second look the ends look different on the Christoph cars shown but the cast ends look like the ones in the big Cristoph catalog. I'm not sure if they made these or if they were selling Gandy Dancer parts, Gandy Dancer had a nice collection of cast white metal parts in TT.

Re: The identification thread

Bill, that was A&J Models from Cape Coral. I have a stock car kit and a caboose, but I haven't seen a boxcar. I think they were later called Kalusa Atlantic Models, somewhere I have a mimeographed catalog sheet with what looks like the identical kits, offered in TT, HO and S scales. Here is the ...

Re: The identification thread

They did have cast metal detail parts, like the ends and brake gear. And they did do their own cast Arch Bar trucks that ...

Re: Lionel NYC F3's
