It is easy to understand why hobby shops do not ignore the large scale
models. 30% gross profit on a large scale locomotive or freight car

There are not enough Z scale hobbiest working in our shops. If you
want to boost Z scale sales in your local hobby shop you must convert
the shop owner and all the sales personnel. Build a little Z scale
module for display in the shop. If it does not produce sales, it will
