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

Thanks,

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

What happened to DnS TT track?
  • Maisto Flat + Army Tanks: Pure Unobtanium... Never saw one
  • Maisto Gon: Rarer than the regular cars; one end is completely flat, they forgot to cut details into the mold!
  • NAFTA (Alberta CA): 'Produce' is such a pejorative word after so many promises...
    Some guy in California ended-up with some very incomplete master parts.
  • DnS Track: Owner was David Schneider in Fort Wayne IN... Have not heard the name in many years.
Reading these TT-Empire scans is going to be like an Easter egg hunt!!!

It seems to me that DnS TT in fact were the Krueger-TT tracks, i.e. the same as Russian TT-Model tracks.
If yes, the production was ceased due to Mr.Krueger illness and death. :cry:

But maybe I'm wrong...

Glad they got there ok. Have fun! The history of TT is littered with failed promises and pipe dreams, but it is still chugging along!
