Here are top-quark “signal” samples generated by requests for Snowmass 2012-2013. Samples are generated using ANL ATLAS Tier3 computer farm based on Arcond/Condor. Details about the Delphes samples for Snowmass are given in this wiki.
One can view and browser directories with all simulated samples using the ANL Monte Carlo repository. Here is a detailed description:
Warning: most of the models are at the LO level (HERWIG/Pythia8) or with some NLO corrections (Madgraph). You should apply a k-factor to get a correct normalization (can be a phase-space dependent).
Background samples are discussed in Background Samples Twiki.
Truth MC record was removed from the Delphes files to reduce file size. Below you can find a repository with truth MC information: signal, signal+pileup (<mu>=50) and signal+pileup(<mu>=140). Pileup particles are included.

You can add a new deatures to Delphes using this test HEPMC record. Download a HEPMC file with ttbar (>650 GeV, 14 TeV) for Delphes. Get it from here LHC_signal_ttbar650.hepmc.gz. Test Delphes as:
gunzip LHC_signal_ttbar650.hepmc.gz DelphesHepMC examples/delphes_card_ATLAS.tcl LHC_ttbar650.root LHC_signal_ttbar650.hepmc
Here are the samples for ATLAS-like fast simulation using Delphes 3.03 without pileup removal.
Other samples with and without pileup (keeping all final state particles) are discussed here
