In truth my priorities have greatly changed in the past 5 years with an ever increasing attention to detail in the realm of future survivability.

So given the options of
- Z with high prices, limited choices, hard to DCC, no sound, crap track
- N with low prices, vast choices, easy DCC, sound and finally good
quality code 40 track
I mostly moved. My Z dabblings are now mostly NN3 narrow gauge and I
expect I'll auction all my Z stuff off fairly soon. I really like Z as a
scale, but with the poor ranges, and the ridiculous MTL v AZL v everyone
else coupling war I'm finally calling it a day.
Still doing intermodal, just a size up. Currently scratching my head
trying to work out how to model the French 'modalohr' system where they
now simply drive the truck onto the wagon and the cab off while still
keeping it low enough to fit through European sized tunnels and catenary.
