Re: [Z_Scale] Re: [Japanese-Z-Scale] Rokuhan Flexible Roadbed Track
- Hello Garth,
The flexible roadbed track (FRT) from Rokuhan is the most
astonishing development for small scale model railroading
I have ever seen. For years I've worked with N and Z scale
track and have found the previous track performance for those scales
mediocre at best (except for Kato being the first to make a sensible
roadbed imbedded solenoid for N scale).
This on the heels of Rokuhan's Z scale imbedded actuation turnouts!
This is the kind of engineering which has been so sorely needed
to make our smaller scales more widely acceptable and should
consequentially make us think of Z and Nn3 as more than just
a cute oval on a coffee table.
Operations, mainline route switching, yard freight routing, galore!
Thanks, Garth, for keeping us up-to-date on these developments.
