people have done that with larger scales and it worked out fine.I have been thinking about it more and wonder what it would look like to have a z scale set running in the background of my n scale one.
I have room for it on the same layout.
Maybe the model RR fairy will send me a check for a z scale set. lol
That is so true, especially since model trains are now like any other electronic device... After a while as technology advances, the smaller chips will become cheaper to produce and the price of Z scale trains will go down... At that time they will have something even smaller though, LOL... Anyone remember "Micro Machines"? They were one of my favorite toys when I was younger... We will probably have model trains in that scale pretty soon, LOLYes, smaller certainly doesn't always mean cheaper!
LOL, I have never even seen a Z scale train so I have no clue how big they are... So you mean that the train along side this layout is as big as a Micro Machine?If you want small, look at http://www.oobject.com/tiniest-gadgets/worlds-smallest-model-railroad/279/ or http://www.hobbiesplus.com.au/ty_scale.htm
They are 1:900.
BTW, according to http://www.puremicros.com/gscale.html, Micro Machines were larger than N scale, but some people use them in their N scale layouts due to the variety available.
