Re: Questions, questions...
- Continuing on the "Does that work" theme...
I also get many "Does the turntable work?" and "How do you put the
trains on the track?" or it's corollary, "How do you keep the trains
on the track?"

- Just got back from a wonderful train meet in Calgary, Alberta. The
shipping crate that I built for Val Ease West did it's job
perfectly. Now I know I can ship the layout as checked baggage if
There were at least a dozen enthusiastic "z" scalers at the meet who
were excited by the news that there are other fanatics out there.
The questions that were asked the most often were:
"Where can you find Z items that won't bankrupt you?"
Of course I suggested that they join Z_Scale and connect with our
highly regarded vendors.
"Wouldn't it be nice if we had DCC for "Z" scale?"
Imagine their surprise when I explained that there is a growing
interest in Z-DCC and that decoders are available for our locomotives.
