Still alive. After nts 17 I was a little in the dumps. Nice to see 18 a better showing.

Thanks for sharing the 2018NTS. I was watching model railroad 2018 video and they didn't show any of the Z scale. They even had Atlas there and not a word was said about the new flex track!

An Idea comes to life, Maybe!?

I finally decided on the Zize of my layout. A mere 30 inches wide, L shape, length 77.5 inches on the short and 126.5 on the long. Now I've just gotta come up with a track plan that will let me do switching & run trains continuously. I have an idea from an article in model railroad magazine based on a real modern RR in Lakesville Minn. I think I'll take creative licence and fictionalize it. The article is in June 2002 MR mag. Name of real company is Progressive Rail. Now I need to find a couple of Eletromotive switchers in Z scale. I know good luck huh......
