- Thanks for the suggestion about experimenting with long trains and
track radius. Unfortunately at this point in time, I don't have nearly
enough track, or a large number of freight cars to even begin such
experiemnts. And with my engine out of commission I'm sort of dead in
the water. It is a very sound idea and makes perfect sense. As soon as
I can, I'll get to it. Should be quite the learning experience.
A z-scale train of 70 cars? Now that's impressive. That would be great
>A z-scale train of 70 cars? Now that's impressive. That would be greatA few years ago I saw a N scale 120-car coal train, powered with 4 Dash9s, running on level track. Why not imagine the same thing in Z scale? The issue should be on a grade, but on level track in my opinion it's not a challenge.
