- Apr 1, 2009Hi Chuck,
Welcome on board. Visiting some nearby Z-scalers may be a great source of info for you.
In which part of the country you live?
BTW I am building a 2-level layout [44" x 88"] that will be stored in the storage compartment of a motorhome.
All the beZtzzz,

I posted the following query over on MarklinBandG@ yahoogroups. com, and
got a mixed bag of advice. A number of users there warned me away from
z-gauge as being more finicky and prone to error from dirt, etc. But
one of the users there suggested I might get more favorable advice
from the folks over here. I'm sure there's some overlap in the two
user communities, so if you saw this message a few days ago, I'm sorry
for the duplication.
My father built up a great collection of Märklin HO when I was a kid
in the seventies, but I've never had space for it in the various
apartments I've lived in as an adult. So even though the collection
became mine when my father passed away, I've left it in storage at my
parents' house, taking it out to play with during visits. During those
vacations, my son (now 13) has showed a strong interest, and so I'm
considering starting a z-gauge collection, as I figure that would be
better suited to the space we live in.
What advice do you folks have for me? What are the pitfalls of z-gauge
for people used to HO and how easily can they be overcome?
