As I watch the Tulip Bulb Mania strike Z scale, with prices of named American Passenger Trains soar to a Thousand dollars or more; I wonder how I can enjoy the thrill of a colored streak running on my highball loop - infinitely chasing its tail as the consists grow longer and longer. Having those champagne tastes, I nevertheless have a beer budget. I turn to my old friend Amazon. Not the dot com Amazon, the dot jp Amazon. And there is one of the oldest names in the business. ZJ, producing Japanese passenger train prototypes for decades. Injection molded bodies with add-on details, metal working pantographs, metal wheels, can motors , simple hook and loop couplers (who ever remotely interchanged a passenger consist?) Runs like a Seiko watch. And I find two variations of the venerable 485 express, a six car consist: one in red and cream, the other in grey and white "Hitachi color" But a new option has presented itself, a "fun pack" 10 cars, 5 in each color. Now the pantographs on the fun pack non-powered car are plastic and fixed, not metal as in the deluxe packs, but it comes with some display track pieces! And what is the pricetag for this collection of passenger car trainsets? $128 INCLUDING air express. $128? That will buy maybe two American passenger cars of a consist! And for $128 from ZJ you get four powered cars, 18 non-powered cars, enough for FOUR sets of passenger trains! But what do you tell your friends about that silver streak circling you layout? "Ya see that engineers cab looking like the cockpit of an airplane? Thats the 1950's GM Aerotrain" you answer deadpan. My only thought is, if ZJ can produce 6 car Z Scale passenger trains, sell them for less than $40 packaged in a deluxe storage bookcase, for a PROFIT, hmn, what's that other $960 buy? without further ado, the ZJ GM Aerotrains.
