Re: Free Layout Software?

I haven't used it (or any other such software) myself, and it's not free ($39), but I've always heard RailModeller recommended for the Mac. It's based in Germany but speaks English quite well, and considering everything, $39 isn't a lot of money these days. I'm not much of a computer geek, but isn't...

Re: Happy Friday the 13th!

I used to think friday 13th is a lucky day for me. But I've never had a winning lotto ticket so I'm starting to doubt that lol. I've never had a winning lotto ticket either. But then I'd probably have had a better chance if I ever bought one... As an engineer, I just can't feature commercial gambli...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

Thxs Joe. Than we will start with a mix, a SP and a SSW F7A Black Widow. Red Nose will follow later. The first batch will be only F7A's. Probably SP, SSW, 2xCN and one B&O. After that a batch with F7B's will follow. After the first 2 batches things will slow down to 2 till 4 locomotives per yea...

Re: Hornby 2022/23

Bill and others -

Looking at the photo of the Scotsman engine, the wheels and flanges seem rather larger than other typical recent 'good' TT models. Could you report back on a comparison to, say, the SW1200 or Gold Coast cars?

Re: NMRA National 2023 in Dallas/FW

https://www.2023texasexpress.com/ Just took a quick look - Rooms are $179 including a $25 "resort fee" which I guess isn't all that bad in today's world, especially if you plan to play in their Water Park - but they will get you for the $22/day surcharge for parking your car, $20 more if ...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

Yes, that could be a challenge. From Union Pacific, I do not have many examples and they look more phase 2. Perhaps somebody has a phase 1 picture. Perhaps it is better to start with SP, CN and CNW. SP has bought a lot of these locomotives. See also the pictures below, which is of the same locomoti...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

Pre-ordering is possible from September till November. We will start first with the UP series, than the GTW box cars and around January 2023 the rest of the cars. Rob Since there are no postings in this topic since May, I ask whether pre-ordering has been opened, or most likely, the inevitable prob...

T and S Trains - what?

So I'm poking around on ebay, and I come across a bunch of listings for something called T and S Trains. None of the listings specify a scale or any way to judge the size, and wikipedia doesn't know about it.

Anyone here know?

TIA - Gerhard
