"Wheels of Steel" is actually a stall in an antiques market (open Monday
thru' Friday _only_), not a model shop in the usual sense (he does not deal
in new goods)
I have never seen any Z items there - his reference to Z along with other
gauges merely forms part of a "I will stock anything" statement, so you
could well be disappointed - frankly, I would not think it worth a visit
unless, as Jeremy hints, the "better half" insists on a shopping spree along
Oxford Street - definitely NOT worth a special trip
Sorry to disappoint, but that is how it is
