Micro Trains wish list
- Hello fellow Z-Crackheads!
How are you all?
After "flipping" through the February issue of MTL's releases... I,
once again, would like to mumble about seeing some thing different
come out of Talent for Z-scale.
Yes... I fully know and have heard the arguements about how little
revenue Z-scale generates for MTL.
But... really... instead of coming out with these "runner packs" of
four of the same thing, that really are just re-releases of previous
items... How about a few new body-styles?
If you look at the N-scale selection... here are just some things I
would like to see worked into Z-scale.
40' drop bottom gondolas with woodchip extentions
Heavyweight depressed-center flat car
ACF three-dome tank car
Three-bay Ortner rapid discharge hopper
Bay Window Caboose
If it's in N-scale... I really would like to see it released in Z-
If any thing... Loren would get more of my money.
Thank you for reading my ramblings...
>Dom,Hi Mike, unfortunately I can't give you a reply with the match MTL Flex / MTL turnouts as I'm using Pater Wright's turnouts ( http://www.wrightturnouts.com ). Finally I chose them instead of MTL's samples because I found that even the MTL's are prone to stalls at very low speed, although they are power routing. Wright's turnouts are to this prospect completely "clean" due to their technology, with non-articulated points.

And About Marklin's turnouts and tracks I can't say, I don't use them as in my opinion they don't match prototype american track (and this ugly side mechanism bores me).
