Well now there then John,
My wife has a strange habit of stalling when she should be on the move. I
have to think of ways to coax her into getting going without making a
federal case of it! Still I love her and wouldn't even think of trading her
in on a newer model that would most likely have her own set of quirks. If
you are really determined to leave Z for greener pastures try checking out
TT scale 1:120. The trains run very well, are moderately priced and are a
nice size. The prime manufacturer Tillig has a web site and there is an
active group on Yahoo.
