Z scale sky trams
- This is my first posting to this group. I have been modeling Z scale
since I bought my first starter set in 1984. I currently have a
layout that is 6' x 8' with two mountains. I have been thinking about
adding a sky tram and saw a picture of one in the photos in the
folder Washington-DC Zbend Track. Was this scratch built or is there
a kit for sale somewhere. Does anyone know of one for sale or what
would be needed to build one from scratch.
I just recently joined this group and have found some very useful
information within this group and will continue to look through all
the information and links.
Go Z scale
The "sky tram" you saw is on Rob Allbritton's Swiss Gotthard Line modules. He used an N scale Brawa "Seilschwebebahn" Cableway set. It should be listed in the "structures section" of the Walthers catalog. They look right for large capacity cable cars in Z scale. I saw a more modern prototype in HO scale at the NTS last year, but I don't know if that will come out in N scale or not.
