      Some good and interesting info has been posted and I think we are all
      enjoying catching up on our Z history.

      We certainly have a wealth of product lines compared to the early days of Z.

      A great time to be modeling,

      Hi Loren,
      I also suspect that it had something to do with the
      track gauge of exactly 6.5 mm that Marklin came up with
      and the diameter of the available motors that would
      work within that range.

      We Electro/Mechanical folks have to design around numbers
      for solids. (Organics are another matter entirely, just add water
      and fertilizers ;>)
