Re: Tailex Spur "WZ"
- Hallo Ted!
I saw one in display.
The trains run between two sheets of plastic. (You can see them on
the last photo of http://www.tinytrains.qpg.com/ - but in reality
they are much more visible, and distroy all illusion.) Trains are
attached to a string, so they all run the same speed and direction.
This limits size and operation. The layouts come ready assembled,
structures may be added.
It's an eye-catcher, especially for non-modellers. The size is
amazing - but also limiting: the ICE looks ugly, because the
smoothness of the prototype is not caught by the modell. But the
other trains would do.
The presented layout was a "8" about 1' long, which was good enough
for a staight track running through the landscape.
I'll stick to Z.
