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......

Well here goes nothing. I bought a MTL F-7  trainset, a GP-35 trainset, also a Marklin 81466  Micado steam loco set.I also got 2 packs flex track (599),2 packs 110mm track.also add 990-40-101 and 990-40-102.This should get me started.I used to N scale but alas space and time constraints got in the way.I have a N scale turntable by atlas that i'm thinking of modifying to Z.I also think the # 2541 pier set can be modified for use as well.should prove interesting at any rate.
