      Hi Dave! And welcome!

      You are correct in that the inventory is less in Z than other scales, and
      that is part of the challenge. But the good news is that more and more and
      more keep coming. Where it used to be that one could pretty well afford
      one of everything coming out, nowadays it'd be darn near impossible (not
      even counting all the beautiful brass out there).

      I don't find Z any more expensive than N for comparable quality. Just my
      opinion.

      Others can better answer the LHS (I have a terrible memory for that, and I
      do most/all of my shopping online).

      As for groups (don't say clubs...that's what we'll hit you over the head
      with if you call us a club)...ZoCal is a modular group based on the ZBend
      Track modular standard. We're spread across LA/Orange/San Diego. We meet,
      well, whenever, typically at my house in Buena Park. There's also a group
      of folks from the ZoCal group forming up in San Diego/Carlsbad area. ZoCal
      also has a yahoo group. Also, in the SF Bay area is the BAZ Boys (yahoo:
      BAZ_modules).

      I'm trying to get everyone together soon, either April 19 or 20. Go
      subscribe to ZoCal and we'll discuss it more there. Upcoming we have a
      meet at the Fullerton Rail Days May 3-4, and the biggie, National Train
      Show in Anaheim in July.

        Hi Jerry, welcome. Z is an interresting scale to get involved with. About DCC, all modern motive power can easily be converted to DCC, with for example decoders from Digitrax, that take place beeing swapped with original circuit board.

        Hi All. I'm new to this group so this is my
        intro message. I have just started working with Z scale
        trains after playing with N scale for about one year. I
        love the flexibility of DCC operations and would love to
        hear about what DCC options are available in Z scale.
        Thanks.
