    Hello Everyone

    The one and only Z scale
    Pan Am Railways Locomotive

    it started as an
    Micro-Train-Lines SD40-2 Undecorated
    now thanks to the amazing talent and skills
    of a fellow Z enthusiast this end results
    are stunningly amazing.
    I absolutely Love it

    Hello Kurt
    Was thinking for tankers
    those AZL 23,000 Gallon Tankcars

    To me they look about right, ↑
    not too short an not too long.
    Like the AZL 33,000 Gal. LPG Tankcar
    like the single one of those in the photo

    Hello everyone

    Haven't posted in a while
    Hope your Summer was Good

    This is a picture of 5 of my 10
    AZL Locomotives.

    Originally I had intended for only
    Conrail & New York Central

    But had to grab these other AZL
    Locomotives because it was
    such a good price on these other Road names

    Have an enjoyable Fall season everyone

    IMG_20230926_025125394.jpg

    came out alright
    (should've went with yellow
    stairwell and safety railings
    as i feel the copper and orange clash
    with each other)

    Have an enjoyable Fall season everyone

    Hello everyone

    The entire time from my
    beginning in Z scale
    a Train has been running on
    all the Track configurations of layouts
    This very well is probably the
    Last Track configuration.

    Slowly building kits an adding
    them to my ZosoRailway

    many many things still to do

    Hope you all had a great summer
    an enjoy the Fall season too

    Not consistent

    because it being a 15 car train
    at the slowest speed possible
    (for the video) without stalling in places sometimes there is stuttering that happens

    I don't like or want a unrealistic speeding
    slotcar like speeds of the Train.

    Plus for Videos I like it to be a little bit slower
    as to show off the Train/Rolling Stock
    especially for those who are seeing Z
    for the First time ever.

    imo:
    some people run their trains too fast

    I usually depending on which of my
    13+ Locomotives I usually run them at
    between 50% - 70% throttle
    some locomotives run comfortable
    at 68% throttle while more than half run at between 50% - 60%
    those percentages are for a comfortable looking rolling trains no stalls or stuttering also not unrealistically fast either
    (is how I like to run my trains,
    sometimes for hours)


    Only two locomotives will run at
    between 10% - 20% throttle
    (wish all the Locomotives ran like those 2)
