Sweden

These are prototypes which either exist as TT scale models or can be modeled from existing models.

Just a quick note to say that Anders at HaboHobby in Sweden has been very generous in making information available to me, such as car drawings (loco, freight, passenger) for multiple eras from SJ Railway diagram books. Also, he is resizing his N scale decals to TT for me. There always seems to be great chaps like this who are similarly interested in trains. :thumbup:

That's really cool. Not many people do that unless you order a billion sheets.

Labor of love on his part, the hobby shop is a spare time business after his "day" job. Being an N scaler in Sweden, he probably knows what it is like to be in the minority!

Just received a Piko V60, the rod drive mechanism is mesmerizing! Very nice little loco. Anders continues on the TT re-scaling job for decals. Slow progress, still haven't found that magical Shapeways source for Swedish bits and pieces, the hunt continues.

050 Ore Car.jpg
Pursuing getting a few of the Fammoorr 050 Swedish ore cars from a Shapeways maker. He does offer them in N and TT scale. Provide your own trucks and couplers, luckily the trucks are apparently US made!

Luckily most of their surface is easily sandable.

Yes, his samples photo shows them to be a bit "rough".
