TTR Collecting – In Practice


LMS suburban2

1936 LMS suburban passenger set




This section will attempt to answer those questions I am most common frequently asked and give practical advice, ( my own views), on collecting and running and repairing Trix Twin.  The first part deals with the basic facts, explaining what is meant by “Twin” and why Trix Twin differs from other systems as well as examples on how to set up and wire a layout.  The second part shows examples of layouts as proposed by TTR from simple designs to an exhibition blue print from Bassett-Lowke’s own draftsmen.  Some useful advanced ideas follow showing you how to make flexible track and put lights in Manyways awning platforms, ( I plan to add to this part in future).  Advice on repairing locomotives taken from TTR publications and some tips of my own and others are listed.  Finally the all important contacts needed to buy spares are listed…. what would we do without these important gentlemen ?
