This morning Peco are setting the cat amongst the pigeons announcing a range of TT track and products!
Absolutely fascinating for me, I think this is the ideal scale, big enough for good detail, and small enough to get the feeling of ‘space’, potentially a very big development for the Uk hobby. People will undoubtedly ask, why? Well there’s been rumours within the hobby for a while that Hornby are re-entering the TT market with a new UK range. There’s already an existing European market for TT, so this acts in two ways, it allows Peco to break into that market with dedicated track, and acts as a spur to the Uk market for new entrants. The new more agile manufacturers will have opportunities here, particularly with the smaller powerful motors that are now available, and the potential of DCC, including sound.
Meanwhile, back in the mancave…
Very interesting times! I’m already excited about the potential TT has for Shelfie type layouts, I need to go and lie down..
