Thanks,

I have a half-dozen short trailers in some phase of paint and assembly right now, as well as a pair of RailTT Ford Customline cars being painted and fitted out, so the vehicle portion of the 2019 Resolution list should be a snap.

Have you tested them in a curve? Body mounted couplers do not work for me on those cars.
Truck mounted couplers work. John Harmon's coupler system for passenger car works too (with the guitar string).

I have had limited success with the curves on my 3'x4' layout, but I plan on making a bigger layout with wider curves that the passenger cars should do better on.

If the new layout fails to provide smooth operation of the HP Passenger cars, I will look into making a new coupler system for the cars.

Two "vehicles" have been added to the fleet for the layout: a pair of UFOs has been purchased for the TT layout: Each is 3D printed, and is in two sections:

Status Report: 13Smarch2020
1.) TT Scale Displays xx/02
2.) TT Scale Locomotives xx/06
3.) TT Scale Figures xx/120
4.) TT Scale Modules xx/04
5.) TT Scale Structures xx/12
I think that these will work for the 2020 Resolutions, with possibility of adding a sixth resolution for the year:

6.) TT Scale Maintenance of Way xx/12

Basically, non-revenue equipment, such as speeders, maintenance vehicles, cabooses, snow equipment, and other MOW stuff.

I know in past years that I have stuck with 5 resolutions, but with the build-up for the 2020 NTS and the fact that things have settled down nicely following the last move, Nicholle and I are better set up to work on more in TT Scale now. Basically, 2020 is the year for the Possum Central to step up to help more with carrying the burden of promoting TT Scale, in my opinion.
