I got the bug to build a miniature Z scale layout, and will be logging my progress here as I go. The layout is being built on top of a 11” by 14” wooden painting panel available at most craft stores. I will be using Rokuhan sectional track. Because of the limited space, the minimum radius will be 95 mm, with 120 mm radius easements. With this arrangement, many of my locomotives will make it through the curves, including: MTL GP9, GP35, F7, AZL GP7, and My Marklin 0-6-0, 2-6-0, and 4-6-0 steamers; however most of the diesels have problems derailing cars behind them. I've ordered a SeaRails EMD Model 40 to be the main motive power for this layout. This is what the track plan will be: I got all the track put together. I had to cut down one of the 120 mm curve sections to make room for a 127 mm radius turnout. Despite the radius difference, the difference is so small, and there is enough play in the connections that there isn't any issue with fit. Today I took to the task of cutting out the center of the board to make room for scenery. After removing a sizable section, I cut wood supports to reattach the section about 3/4” lower. I then glued everything back together and its drying now.
