Tillig Bedding Track Unavailable?

Post by railtwister »

What’s up with Tillig’s TT Gauge bedding track? Most of the 30 degree curved track sections (both brown and/or gray) on Tillig’s website are listed as “unavailable”. Does this mean that they are discontinued? I was looking to get a couple of concentric loops of 30 degree sections of track in the maximum radius that I can fit on a table one meter wide. Hopefully, someone who lives in Germany is familiar with this apparent shortage and can shed some light on the problem.

Hello Bill, IMO I think they are stepping up productions for the Holliday season.
This hobby shop in Germany that I purchased all of my track sets and tracks has the R396 Grey as a reservation. I seen that last year too as it was a brand new item in 2019, later in the year I got notified that it became available.

mein-mbs.de, former Modellbahnshop-Sebnitz, is well stocked. They have almost everything in stock.
The 3 radius R396 was new in 2019, it might not be available yet. Mein-Mbs gives it as "in stock from manufacturer" but that might be too optimistic an answer.

Also stocked at elriwa.de.
They have no indication of the amount of shipping costs to North America. Only a link to DHL. There it is explained that DHL is shipping with sea/ocean freight since September 15th. Transit times of at least 25 to 30 days.
Lok-n-Roll.de - we send worldwide :wink:

I am guessing this is an issue caused by the pandemic. Looks like my plans will have to be put on hold again.

I sent an email inquiry trying to buy some Tillig TT Bedding track back a couple of months ago when they had a track sale. They never responded to my email. It’s a shame that our TT-Tracks standard requires the Bedding Track while Tillig has no interest in selling their products to the USA. I dusted off some of my old N scale T-TRAK modules instead, and just put TT Scale on the back burner. I would love to get enough of the track to build four corners and a few straight modules but Sebnitz never seems to enough quantities on hand to fill one order. The cost of German shipping to the USA makes backorders and multiple shipments unfeasible.

I can see blaming this on Covid if everything had to go on passenger jets when so many aren’t flying, but hey, DHL has their own planes that don’t carry passengers, yet they say they are shipping ocean freight because of Covid...
