I’m in the process of building a Z scale module (eventually at least two!). I haven’t lost interest in my narrow gauge layout, just fancied doing something different, inspired by the small mountain layout I did recently. I’m posting my progress on the z forum on trainboard, but I thought you guys might like a look. The module format (“Z-Bend Track”) is quite simple and versatile, requiring only that tracks meet the board edge at specified distances apart. So far got the framework built and the homemade foam risers installed. This will be a purely scenic module, with more complex trackwork on subsequent ones, but keeping it simple for my first go.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.!

The home made foam risers are impressive, a simply solution to a complex problem.

Most impressed.

I've always been impressed with Z scale and N scale projects. Your risers definately look well put together.

Off to a good start, the base looks sturdy enough to y\transport the layout anywhere.

Hi gang, I've not been doing much but work recently, but a photo comp on zcentralstation got me to get a small section of my module fit to photograph. The subject was "Bridge and Caboose", here's my entry.



Hopefully got this weekend to myself, so will catch up with everything then

I won!!!:glad::Woohoo:

Not sure how, there was some good competition. I am now awaiting my prize, a tiny z scale greenhouse.

Not sure I've ever won anything before, apart from the odd game of pool.

Not touched this for a while, but I've been collecting the State car series from MTL, so I thought I'd get them out and take some snaps...









Sorry about the colours, I need to sort out some better lighting for photographs (not to mention a better camera!)

Cheers

Phil
