TT Scale is a myth!?!

Postby AstroGoat760 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 9:45 pm

I had a humdinger of a reaction today when I took some of my HP locomotives with me today to the local hobby shop to show the size that TT scale is.

Despite having been in the hobby business for about 50 years, he had never seen TT scale before, and only heard about it in passing, and was convinced that TT scale was "not real, and is a myth".

Myth: busted.

But it did prove that Nicholle and myself are likely the only TT modelers in the upper midwest (what the locals like to call ND and upper MN).

Next up: the Loch Ness Monster.

Keep it a myth. It's got more clout that way ;)

Does this mean that a TT scale Roswell and Loch Ness are a go?

You should bring him not only old HP stuff, but modern Gold Coast cars too. And maybe some German or Russian stuff.
It seems to me that a lot of American modellers know something about TT ...a long time ago, in 1950s.
But very few of them know anything about modern TT.

But it did prove that Nicholle and myself are likely the only TT modelers in the upper midwest (what the locals like to call ND and upper MN).


So you must perform an exposition in this hobby shop! And recruit some new TT modellers! 8-)

Guys... this forum is a good place for me to practice in my English.
But sometimes I can't understand your jokes or idioms. :oops: Please help me. :pray:
What does it mean - "are a go"? Do you mean "a deal, agreement"? Or "some incident" ? Or something else?.. :eh: :?:

"are a go" = can be done/ok to start/ready to to start....you get it right?

Ok, thank you! Now everything is clear to me! :dance:

TT-scale Roswell... why not? :lol: If I am not mistaken, the small UFO is available from Busch or Faller.
It is HO-scale, but who cares? Who knows the real size of UFO? :lol:

Haha, if we are on the RAILROAD modelling forum, I think the Lincoln's funeral ghost train would be better :wink:

Perhaps someone should do this train in TT and it can reach double mythical status!
