65069Re: [Z_Scale] Re: Hallmark Keepsake Ornament for 2010
- Jul 17 9:54 AMI measured the whole three car set last night (The only prototype dimension I could find online was the length of the entire three car train set) and it scales out about 3% larger than Z or about 1/210th scale. Width measures out to 11.5' wide (in 1/220).
Interesting thing about this set is that the cars are joined together by magnets in the articulated part/vestibule section instead of by couplers. The power car is cast metal and the cars are plastic. I noticed that the brown paint color on the power car is slightly different than on the cars, probably due to one being metal and the other being plastic.
The M-10000 was a three car set as this ornament set is, but the box says it is a model of (the Lionel toy train of) the M-10001 which was run as a longer train set with a sleeper. The car numbers used don't quite seem to match up though. Still have to check that (as well as dig out my drawings that are currently buried in the basement).
This is one I've personally been hoping for for a long time.

The UP set does appear to be close to Z scale. The miniature sets tend to be too small for Z scale. The Polar Express steamer may be useable as a park engine. Needs a tender.
I'm watching for the Vacation House that may be useful. Too bad the church series has ended.
