I have been sort of a bystander when it comes to Z scale. However I was fortunate to have known Bill K. He would always let me run my Nn3 trains on their Z-Bend layout at train shows in Houston. Got a lot of goofy looks from folks but it was fun. Bill was always coming up with little projects for me to do for him. I tagged along on the trip to the NTS 2001 in St. Louis. I helped drive Chad Bryan's truck that was pulling a trailer full of modules. We stopped in Dallas to pick up Billy Roden's gang and their modules. What a trip. Somewhere on a farm road in rural Missouri, we had to stop and photograph everyone under a sign for cross road named "Z". Of course being the odd man out, modeling N, I got to take the picture.
