The TT Empire newsletter is now a free quarterly electronic newletter.

You can subscribe by going to the TT Empire web site: http://www.ttempire.org/

They would also like people to submit articles, pictures etc.

I have my electronic copy, and am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for TT Empire (and TT Scale in general)!

I signed up. Interested to see the content.

I also tried contacting Mike. I used the 110ttempire.org address but got bounced. Seems his e-mail is full. Also on the home page the e-mail address has a "dot com" ending. When I tried the dot com address I got a "no such address" message. Can anybody shed some light on this?

So, I'm wondering what the illustrious editor is smoking.

Example 1 taken directly from the current issue: "Over the last few years it seems that there is now less available
in the area of new items." To say that this puzzles me would be an understatement.

Example 2 also taken directly from the current issue: "The TT Empire is not in competition as one other TT
Web site seems to think". It does not require a stretch of the imagination to figure out what the "other TT Web site" is. If this website (me) thought we were in competition, the above posts would not have been allowed.

If anyone can shed some light on the above I'd appreciate it - because I'm stumped.

I'm kind of baffled by the two e-mail addresses. Then what you described Alex gives me an indication it's best to sit back and wait this one out to see what happens. I'm starting to think it would be better to write some articles for one or more of the major model publications.

The Email address for the TT Empire should have been a .org, not a .com. My bad, I have corrected it on the Home page of the web site. The "Contact Us" button has the correct Email address.

Alex: You are more than welcome to submit a Letter To The Editor for any reason you feel is needed. I will not modify, censor or change the letter in any way. All I ask is that you be adult in your submission and eliminate the childish references. Your letter will appear in the December 2015 issue and any responses from the subscribers will appear in the March issue. Should I deem a response is required it will appear in December. I will await your Email to the TT Empire Email address.

Yes, the statement "Over the last few years it seems that there is now less available in the area of new items." is hmmm... politely said controversial.
We have got the most new TT-scale RTR models and kits during the last few years since 1960s! How can that be "less available"?
I think that the editor owes an apology to MTB, SazModel, Zeuke-TT, GoldCoast/Lok-n-Roll and many others. And that is only when considering North American TT-scale. If we take the TT-scale in general (incl. Europe), we have more available in the area of new items than ever before.

Nah.

I look forward to whatever you have planned to help the scale grow!

I'm still waiting for the Sept. issue. I did sign up on Sept. 1 or 2. I figure it would be in my mail box by now.
