...and someone would determine that HOW?
Given the relative lack of interest in TT scale in N. America, it's difficult to imagine anyone seriously claiming copyright infringement. If there's no money to be made in marketing TT trains then surely there is no money to be made in distributing CDs or PDFs of a defunct publication about TT scale. And money is the main reason for copyright.

https://www.lib.umn.edu/copyright/purpose
If copyright didn't exist, everyone would be able to make copies of each new creative work without the creator's permission. But because it does, creators get to decide whether or not their creative works get distributed, and how they get distributed. And if lots of people want copies of the work, the creator can make people pay to own those copies.

The purpose of copyright, then, is to create mechanisms for creators to control ownership of expressive works, so they can receive payment for their works.

In the midst of de-cluttering for a major relocation I have found my collection of TT Empire newsletters. They are from the 90's up thru the end of publication with some duplicates and may be missing a few. Anyone who wants these I will be glad to part with them, just pay shipping and they are yours. I am in Indiana 46250, so you can figure shipping via media mail, usually cheapest.

Tom... I would happily contribute towards mailing these to Bill Dixon's US postal drop...
He seems to have been 'volunteered' to digitize the collection!

Richard,
Murad asked about shipping to Russia and it is quite expensive in my view! If he declines I can check it out for shipping to Seattle?
Thanks,
Tom

Received my box of TT Empires today.
Fiddled with copier trying to find the best way to scan them.
Eventually figured out the best method.
Scanning at 600 dpi, colour, double sided gives a good result.
The first scan is enclosed.

So one issue down and already I have many questions.
Maisto flat cars and gondolas. I have never seen these. Anybody have some to sell.
Did NAFTA Trains ever produce any models?
What happened to DnS TT track?

Anybody have answers
