Plans = Yes...
Several products from a couple of sources; Some are on the market now... some in development.
Kuehn is one of the obvious possibilities.

The first few times I saw TT-West mentioned I thought that someone had created a TT scale version of O scale west :>) A TT scale shop will be more useful than a show however....DaveB

Richard,

Just for grins & giggles I did a Google search to see if the shop shows up on the first page. It was a no go. I typed in TT West in all the different iterations I could think of and I didn't get any where near an on line hobby store. Something you may want to look into if you want people to find you on the net.

Rich, will you have a booth at the Point Richmond (Craneway Pavilion) Train Show this weekend?

Might get a lot of surprised train enthusiasts that have never heard of TT Scale.

Planning to attend the Craneway show Sunday... but no booth.
This is actually a serious philosophical question; Finding the right balance balance between showing TT-scale possibilities to those who might just be getting started in the hobby... and showing what we have today to modelers who have the skills to actually implement it.

For the time being... TT-West is focused on the latter; existing modelers who might be interested in trying (or re-visiting) TT-scale. In that context, I'm trying to see if there is an opportunity to set-up a table at the upcoming joint PCR-NMRA / FRRS meet in Modesto http://www.pcrnmra.org/conv2016, April 20-24th, 2016.

If I set-up... I'll need to do an F3 and an SW-1200 in WP colors!!! ... maybe even a GP38!

What? WP colors, not SP? I think that's sacrilege! Of course it might be easier, I don't know much about the WP but I doubt they shared the SP's penchant for sticking extra lights all over their locomotives!

I swear SP is the Polish Railways of North America, with that inexplicable need for bizarre lighting fixtures!

And no, I don't think WP would be sacrilege. UP on the other hand...

I just placed an order for an undecorated tank car, hopefully the first of many cars ordered from TT-West.

The meet is joint with the FRRS... The Feather River Rail Society http://www.wplives.org/frrs.html ...the WP historical group. I thought I would be kind.

My modeling focus remains razor sharp... the SP Mulford Line from Niles up to Elmhurst in Oakland, and then on to the West Oakland yard and engine terminal. Note that this route interchanged with BOTH the WP and the Howard Terminal in West Oakland.

You just won't hear me mention Santa or Uncle Pete...

Sir:
Are you by chance speaking poorly of the Espee's magnificent 'full' light package?
