@Buck
TT is only really popular in eastern Germany and eastern Europe. I just come back from a meeting of FREMO, ( Free-Mo in the U.S. ) an organization covering modular railroading in all scales from Z to II ( or III in British terminology ). It took place in E. Germany, where we had TT modules from Bulgaria, Poland, Czech Republic, and Germany all together in one arrangement. It was all SG, but one of the station modules had also NG trackage. The NG'ers didn't take part ( there are three I know of ). There are some very active people in TTn2.5 ( 6.5mm ) and TTm (9mm), but being a minority splinter from a minority gauge, at least in the remainder of Germany, they are a handful. There are, however, suppliers of etched-brass kits ( ex chassis ) in the field.

I started this DRG&W caboose but it ended up a scale foot short so I punched an extra window to make it close to an early RGS caboose, seeing how it would be different if I made more DRG&W cabooses in the future. A HO scale model is in the back and a 36' n scale reefer is hooked to it. It would scale out to 28' In TT scale, but is to narrow to fit in.

Howdy Buck, this statement may cause outrage but here 'tis:
MY OPINION is that TT should be more popular than N (1/10"=12" vs 2MM=12") and S should be where HO is today (3/16"=12" vs 3.5MM=12"). Maybe it's just the physical size, heft, mass, etc. Well, that's just my take...now I will put on my bullet-proof vest and take a walk.

TTn3.5 is alive and well in NZ.
Plenty of support.
Are you aware of sites such as this Buck?
http://motoriseddandruff.blogspot.com.au/

I first came across this scale gauge combination in the 1970's when a fellow club member had an exhibition layout based on the station area around Murrarie, a suburb of Brisbane Qld. All scratchbuilt of course.

The well of ingenuity of railway modelers is deep indeed. Cool stuff.

Jacque, I'm digging it share more!
Robert, Motorised Dandruff was one the first websites I found for NZ rail modeling and it's been one of my favorites for a long time. On NZ120.org a gentleman shared photos a 'QR120' (Queensland Rail layout he came across that was very neat.
