    It's been a while since I posted, as I have been busy working on Z and N projects.

    Z Scale 60' Thrall Center Beam Flat Cars


    These cars were built by Thrall Car from 1977 till the mid 80's, before being replaced by the more popular 73' models. I have 4 roads built of the 60' so far, although only 3 pictured here because I'm still detaling the Trailer Train version right now.

    I decided I needed some Z Scale models for my Z Bend module, and to run behind my AZL SD-45's, so this is what I came up with:

    As you can tell I got bit by the Z bug, and it will be a while till I recover... Can you say Bifocals?

    What is an "AZL SD45?" AZL obviously is the manufacturer? What colors are yours painted? Northern Pacific?

    No, Mine were painted Rio Grande. The run was only 200 models, and the only ones that were left were the RG, BN, and Southern High Hood. I chose based on ease of repainting in NP. ;)

    Well, when you have them repainted, they would be a lot of fun to see. Please post up some pix!
