Thanks. That pretty well sums up my feelings about collecting, building, and running TT scale: keeping a foot firmly planted in the past, and the other in the future, so one can see where we have been, and where we are going.ConducTTor wrote:Now don't get me wrong. I'm not saying "they need to stay away because they are old school". I'd love to have them here to discuss the old stuff. Hell, look at 'Sailor - he's got tons of older stuff and plenty of conversations gets started around his items and there is plenty of interest in them. The difference is that he's also embracing the new.
I would absolutely LOVE to see some pics posted of those Yahoo group guys' layouts and models. I've seen maybe 5 pics total in my life of US proto tt scale. But they don't wanna.
They kept the scale alive in the dark days. They should be a part of coming out of the dark.
It sure does seem like more progress is here than on the Yahoo groups, shoot, just how many cars are either available or in late development over just the last few months?
The future of TT scale definitely looks brighter, we just need to make sure the flame does not get put out.
