How did you guys get the FVM wheels? I tried to order (that didn't work), emailed them, no response.

I got mine either last year or the year before. I see they don't have their order form on the Order Now page. It's still under construction. I did order through their web site back then. They suggest finding a favorite shop to order from. Makes me wonder why TT West or Clover House couldn't be the place to carry them.

I emailed Matt Gaudynski at info@foxvalleymodels.com back in January, got an answer in two days, paid him on PayPal and he mailed them. Presto.

The postal service took 4 weeks to deliver them, but that's another story.

"are you willing to email with Fox Valley?"

Hi Brian, Sure, I'll give them a ring. A dealer interested in re-selling track would be more persuasive though. I'd like to be able to buy TT flextrack and just build my turnouts instead of handlaying the whole layout. I'm working on my S layout now so have some time to wait for TT flextrack to happen :>).....DaveB

Hi!
I`m entering the world of models :)
With TT scale, I hope.

Can I get recommendations for good rails/railroads?
Tillig? Something else?
Why?
Thanks!

It might depend on where you are located? Are you interested in US models, or European, or something else?

It will be a fantasy world so...steam locos with clean layout.
I`m looking for reliability and quality.

Hi welcome to the board.

In your part of Europe, the easiest way to get TT tracks are the German on-line shops:
Lippe
https://www.modellbahnshop-lippe.com
MBS
http://www.mbs-sebnitz.de
Both have the whole sortiment from Tillig and Kühn tracks. You have to check the shipping conditions to your country.
Ocassionally you can visit few shops in Hungary carrying TT material.

Welcome, on the forum!

Backo Mini Express at Zagreb is at the homepage from Tillig listed as a retailer.
Lok-n-Roll.de - we are shipping worldwide :wink:

Thanks krokodil,
thanks MacG.

I`ll buy from Backo but I want to hear your opinion about TT tracks.
TT scale isn`t popular in Croatia :( so there are no people with first-hand experience.
Should I buy Tillig?
Advanced or Bedding?
Advanced have flexible tracks, and the bedding should be more reliable. So I was told :smile:
