      I know you already know the answer to this, but I
      did not see a post from you further down the line...
      so I thought I should clarify for the z group.

      Here are the words direct from Noch:

      "I just received notice that we updated the Cortina
      track plan last Friday (Oct 24) and it should be on
      our web site shortly. Please inform the customer
      that he should use two 8591 to form a slight S-curve
      between the tunnel portal and Cortina. Sorry for the

      Now, to Phil's question about the tunnels: Yes, the
      Noch N/Z layouts come with N scale portals. If you
      were to make a layout that was for both N and Z, you
      most likely would make the folks who comprise a smaller
      population (us z scalers) have to retrofit tunnel

      So, the answer is to retrofit with z-scale portals,
      Noch part number 44790 (one pair is needed for the

      The 84320 is not oversized N, it is an N/Z layout. It
      is not intended for HO. The 84330 has been discontinued
      for about 3 years now. Yes, the photo they show with
      the extension layouts is a bit out of date...I have
      brought that up with them, but I am not sure if they
      feel it is a priority to change it. Another page in
      the catalog (shown at my web site, too) shows the 2001
      and later extensions and how they look:

      Noch does save you time, although, you were stuck at
      the starting gate. Get to runnin' those trains!
