  • Have not heard of them. If the Digitrax or Vellmo decoder do not fit that chassis (they were made for the most common Märklin chassis), try CT Elektronik ( www.tran.at ). His Dcx76z or 77z are really small. Very, very small.

  • Märklin showed an example of that in there 1985(?) catalog, along with many other radical opportunities and what really intrigued me into Z. What I planned to do was us a Cyprus stump that is more flared at the bottom but had thin like bark on the sides. This allowed for a tunnel and trestle work such as a sheer logging road might have. Add some lichen, some trees, bushes. Instead...

  • Also, ZM3. But to say that track must be the right proportion like code 30 in Allen's example or must have RP profile wheels it's just not scalable in Z to Proto type stuff. While idealized standards, like track spacing, having track re-tooled, wheels, etc. just is not practical. With 20-30+ years of proven performance, those things just won't change. If somebody wants to make...

  • Geoff, please do. Greg Elmassian, ZoCal group, said he was part of the Standards committee.

  • Is there some reason why he wants the original (besides a complete era set?)

  • SuperCapacitor then? You need to find a lower current motor! But i know that's not cheap not widely available. Even pager motors draw a lot of current.

  • Here is a source reported by Kim: to get an idea of the commercially available sizes for these batteries. http://www.powerstream.com/li-pol.htm If you need exact dimensions to fit in some place I would get a mm smaller, these advertised dimensions are usually smaller than the actual, especially the width because they fold the aluminum on the width side to seal and it has a some...

  • I don't personally (off the top of my head, we say). Let me ask my micro miniaturization guy, Kim Vellore. But he's always scrapping assemblies so not sure if he has 'new' let numbers. Give me a few days.

  • Batteries are now commonly Lithium polymer, much smaller and higher current. Motors aren't the problem. It's the market size (not enough users) Jeff M Niles Depot, N scale SF Bay Area Z On Mar 30, 2015, at 6:42 AM, Anthony Azzara afazzara@^$1 [z_scale] < z_scale@^$2 > wrote: Very cool.
