Use BTTB parts for Lionel TT

Use BTTB parts for Lionel TT

Did anybody try to use BTTB locomotives to motorise Lionel's TT?
Recently I've tried to alter BTTB's E499 truck to F3 and failed (((( I cut a piece from E499's truck to fit it to F3 but there is no way to make the truck back in one piece. So did anybody tried (or just theoretically tried) to do the same?

Murad, it would be interesting for me (because I live in Russia and can buy a lot of BTTB stuff) but I'm afraid I will not try.
(But if you can do it, I can buy your decision)

Lok-n-Roll produce power unit to motorize Lionel's locomotives. Maybe buy their chassis?

The most problem with Lok-n-roll in the PRICE of 99Euro + 15 for shipping =)) I don't think that it's a problem to rebuild some of BTTB. I just can't find the model with the right leight of the truck. Will try to check some Zeuke stuff in a week

most BTTB are full carbody and not narrow hood units and i wonder if this would create problems.

however i think the BR218 diesel is correct for an FT diesel ... not that TT has an FT shell on offer!
