Keeping Up With The Times

Post by JimG »

Some of you may have noticed the interest in TT 120:1 scale started off by Peco's announcement to provide track, a wagon and some buildings in the scale. There's been quite a bit of discussion on forums and loads of wish lists being generated to indicate what modellers would be looking for. But I thought I might see what could be done doing it myself.

So I dug out my workings for Drummond 28ft coaches which I had generated some years ago in S scale and scaled them down. And the result is this :-

It all worked very well and it looks like a nice scale to work in.

The parts are cut on my CNC machine which almost seems a prehistoric method in these days of 3D printing. :)

Maybe on to a 903 and some Grampians. :D

Those look very good.

I too have seen the threads on the peco track, it will be interesting to see if it takes off in the UK.
