Does anyone have pictures or schematics comparing Tillig's turnouts with their TT Filigran counterparts? Thanks in advance!

I've seen them live at a fair in Leipzig but I unfortunately don't have any material about them.

Hey, Boss, if you look at the product listings on the website, they have pictures of the geometries i.e. http://www.ttfiligran.de/shop/shop.asp? ... l=&RngBem=

Now that I look at the stuff, it sure is temping to build something out of it. Looks really good. Perhaps a diorama because I am not tearing up my s$!t again!

Another question about TT Filigran ... someone said you couldn't use old Zeuke/BTTB rolling stock. How about Tillig? That is, since TT Filigran is code 60, as compared to Tillig's code 83, is there any problem running RTR Tillig locos and cars on TT Filigran? Does anyone have actual experience of trying this?

At http://www.tt-board.de/forum/showthread.php?t=22066 - (translated from German) "They have gone to a great deal of effort to develop a track close-to-prototype on which nevertheless all vehicles can operate, even the "old stuff" of Zeuke, without any required modifications." Caveat: no personal experience...

Then "someone" was lying.
You just have to be careful when assembling so you get the small plastic "spikes" correctly. The side without the "bolt" has to be always inside - because the "bolts" were removed to make space for large flanges.
Even Filigran can get that wrong. There was a small section of one of the turnouts I bought where it was pre-assembled wrong.
The maximum flange height for Filligran track is 1 mm. (I measured 1.07 mm)
No problem for Tillig
No problem for BTTB
No problem for Zeuke
No problem for HP
Problem for Rokal, but that is not a surprise.

Please let me know if you need any particular detail.
